Our future will be determined by the elections of 2018. Neither major party has a program to fundamentally advance the nation, let alone ensure even our short-term survival. LaRouchePAC advances the following platform, and we are announcing that we will undertake an independent expenditure campaign to make it happen. We will campaign on this program, endorsing or opposing candidates based on whether they will campaign for these ideas. We seek to create large blocs of voters in critical Congressional Districts to join us.
Both parties are controlled by Wall Street. Both parties adhere to the post-World War II imperial system for relations between nations, a system which has produced perpetual war and genocide, and now, a dangerous new Cold War. The Democrats intend to use these elections to impeach the President. The Republicans, while nominally supporting the President, fanatically adhere to economic axioms which will destroy his Presidency.
Our program has two flanks. End the coup against the President and prosecute those responsible. Implement LaRouche's Four Laws for Economic Recovery of the United States and join the United States to China's great Belt and Road Initiative for economic development.
This will create millions of productive jobs here and internationally, while also causing a most fundamental and necessary change in strategic relations. Under the LaRouche program, nations will collaborate on great projects advancing the common aims of mankind, rather than facing off as geopolitical opponents in hybrid wars where humanity itself constantly teeters on the edge of thermonuclear extinction.
Here are LaRouche's Four Laws. They are not separate planks. Each and every one of these laws must be conceptualized and implemented together.
(1) Re-instate Franklin Roosevelt's Glass-Steagall Act, and do it now, prior to the imminent collapse of the financial bubble Wall Street built in the wake of 2008.
(2) Return to a system of top-down national banking, creating the credit necessary to put our infrastructure on a completely modern platform. The models for such a program already exist in the form of Hamilton's National Bank of the United States, Lincoln's Greenback system, and Franklin Roosevelt's Reconstruction Finance Corporation.
(3) Use the federal credit-system to generate high-productivity trends in improvements of employment, with the accompanying intention, to increase the physical-economic productivity, and the standard of living of the persons and households of the United States. Any economic proposal must advance this principle. Progress depends upon building a modern national infrastructure and cultural platform conducive to fostering human creativity.
(4) Create a fusion energy economy and re-dedicate the nation to space exploration. Fusion represents a qualitative leap in the potential productive power of the population and will be the source of power for ready exploration of space. Fundamental scientific advancements are the keystone of all economic progress.
The intention of these laws, taken together, is to create a critically necessary new human renaissance.
