My New Year's ReVolutions by Cindy Sheehan


My New Year's ReVolutions
* End all wars
* Bring US troops home
* Close 99% of Military Bases around the world
* Pay reparations to destroyed nations
* Abolish CIA, NSA, Homeland Security 
* Reduce Pentagon budget by 80%
* Fully fund schools from pre to University
* Forgive student loan debt
* Moratorium on foreclosures and evictions
* Institute a program of Medicare for all
* Arrest and prosecute US war criminals from the Clinton/Bush/Obama regimes
* Free all political prisoners
* Free non-violent offenders
* End drug war and legalize marijuana and hemp
* Reduce nation's dependence on fossil fuels
* Nationalize fossil fuel companies
* End fracking
* End offshore drilling
* End nuclear power
*Expand clean/renewable energy programs
* Transition off of GMO's and other harmful food additives
* Heavily and punitively Fine Monsanto
* Nationalize the Federal Reserve
* Lose 10 pounds
* Run a 10k 
It's sadly true that most of the things on my Resolution List are out of my control, but are more of a Wish List to reduce and/or completely eliminate the US Empire.
However, as I have done every year since I can remember, I do resolve to improve myself and to do everything I can this year to educate, inspire, perspire, and work for PEACE on EARTH!

  1. Hi Cindy,

    Very interesting post. You've got a nice list of new years resolutions. Maybe I'll make my own list too, something easy to achieve.

    Happy new year!

  2. Well Cindy...I share your passion and conviction, so together we can do twice as much :)
    I am starting a non-profit to get a law passed that will in my opinion solve the gun problem without banning guns, as that is not the stage we are at yet. I will keep in touch as I think we can work well together on this. My name is Teeluck (you can google that) This will explain... http://shockandaweonamerica.blogspot.com/2012/12/dont-ban-guns-or-large-capacity-clips.html

  6. I agree with all your resolutions, except legalizing marihuana and hemp. I don't believe in drug use, legal or not. If it is to prolong life, like prescription drugs, then yes, other than that no.
    Life is too short and too precious to go through high as a kite. Oh well, that is what democracy means, agree to disagree. I wanted to vote for you and Roseanne here in Texas, but your names weren't in the ballot, ergo, I didn't vote. I'm tired of choosing the lesser of two evils.

  7. "* Pay reparations to destroyed nations". Does that include US?

  8. Cindy you are an inspiration! Totally with you 110%!! As to the anonymous commenter who still thinks laws and police have any place deciding what you can or cant put in your body,or that doctors--mostly shills for big pharma--should have that authority either,well im not going to be particularly polite to that individual.You,sir,are an asshole and an idiot.

  9. Prescription drugs are much more harmful than marijuana. Hemp isn't even a drug.

  10. Great list. I would also encourage you to transition off of eating/using animal products. It's much healthier for you, the planet and of course the animals. Love to you and good luck to us all in 2013. We're going to need it.

    1. I have already done that, personally and I agree with everything you have said. I have been a vegetarian/vegan for over 25 years.

    2. I am so happy to hear that! Many activists don't see the connnection between animal and human suffering, but to quote Leo Tolstoy (War and Peace): "As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will always be wars."

      Keep up the fight Cindy--we love you!
