non carborundum illegitimati

AMERICAN CITIZENS in the city of Berkeley, California, value the freedoms and protections in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

We have paid into the long-standing American institutions of Social Security and MediCare all of our working lives.

Our exercise of our individual rights have benficially influenced the nation in the fields of health, arts, science, and philosophy.

We think for ourselves, care for others, believe in and work for a society and government that serves and protects everyone.

We respect and value other cultures, races, customs, and knowledge. We want America to be a good world citizen.

The Republican party wraps itself in the flag to conceal its attacks on the democratic foundations of our government.

We don't rely on corporate media. We can tell a pack of lies from the truth.
