The Election Decided Nothing; the U.S. Needs Leadership Now  

by Nancy Spannaus

The results of the Nov. 2 election decided nothing, stated Lyndon LaRouche, the following day. True, the Democratic Party has been left in tatters, but the Republican Party that is coming in, has absolutely nothing to offer, in response to the actual breakdown crisis engulfing the nation, and the world.

But much more needs to be done to crush the British-protected opium trade.
