Stop Underwriting Empire

As we can see, our Congress is wasting time blowing the hot air of empty opportunism around meaningless "non-binding resolutions." Though this provides those in Congress with the ability to say that they voiced their opposition -- at least ceremoniously, it does nothing to stop an arrogant administration bent on disaster. How can they be stopped? I and others have suggested a national stay at home strike but, though a worthwhile and important tactic, it is difficult to pull off in the needed numbers. I have called for an international embargo as well but another idea is that the international community drop the dollar as a means of exchange and switch to the Euro. This would effectively end our ability to, as Vladimir Putin says, act outside of international law employing "almost uncontained" use of force around the world by creating an economic crisis. It's time for the global community to pull the plug on US militarist aggression and the dangerous extremism of the neocons.
