US Constitution

The American war of Independence was an act of national and class revolutionary violence against aristocratic/monopolist merchant class in Britain by colonial American merchants farmers and craftsmen. An expression of advanced thought at that time is to be found in Common Sense by Tom Paine.The American Declaration of Independence and the Constitution recognise the equality of man or actually that of property owners. This Constitution was used by slave owners and then by Abolitionists. It has been used to bolster aggressive expansion at expense of native American peoples and Mexicans. Then to support US domineering policy in the so called “backyard”, the Caribbean, Latin America and, later, the world.The constitution was used to pursue segregation and by the Civil Rights movement, by the American Labour Movement and corporate giants. The powerful imperialist capitalist elite have usually won the day.

Questions

  • What principles of the American constitution are in common with the Bill of Rights and which with the Agreement?
  • Power has the constitution the use by progressive movements: abolitionists, civil rights, labour movement? How do corporate giants, seen as propertied individuals, corner the market in the U.S. legal system?
  • How does the U.S. purports to extend its constitution around the world?

That the government is using Huawei technology, is a sign of independence. We don't want to be trussed up and handed over to a new neoliberal trade deal with the US, just as we got out of the neoliberal EU. Farage is pushing US interests.
No to US sanctions.
No to US bullying.

The ugly truth is that China has bought and paid for the UK establishment. Our elite has been captured yet again. https://www.newsweek.com/huawei-boris-johnson-conservative-rebellion-churchill-farage-1488582

Cuba is the safest destination for tourism, because of its people's hospitality. SOCIALISM.

Meanwhile many countries and Amnesty international have warned about violence to tourists in the USA. RAMPANT CAPITALISM.
