15) Deregulated banking to allow five banks to become too-big-to-fail, exacerbating the 2008 meltdown that those banks caused.

16) Put US taxpayers on the hook for $20 plus trillion dollars in bailout schemes for the too-big-to-fail banks, enough to fund single payer medical insurance for every Murkin for a decade and retire every student's college debt.

17) Dodd-Frank legislation that enabled too-big-to-fail banks to control 50% of US bank assets today compared to 25% when they crashed the economy in 2008.

"I will not longer vote for the lesser evil; that's what's killing America"



So did we!


Let's be very clear here. If Clinton wins, it will be because a sizable number of Berniecrats came out and gave her their vote. If she wants to be remembered as something more than JUST the first female president, she had best remember that and fight like hell for the progressive agenda she claims to represent.

But let's also be clear. If she loses, ALL the blame falls on the DNC leadership for trotting out such a flawed, damaged and uninspiring candidate.


Your excellent post corroborates my contention that the Democratic party is not the opposition party to the Republican party, but the oligarchical, controlled, corrupt, opposition party. I could add more examples, but yours will suffice.


Neither dems nor reps are credible any more. They should be replaced by a progressive/green alliance. That new alliance must represent the people against the corps and banks.

With a little planning and a hell of a lot of campaigning such a political force can be ready for 2020. But it needs to start now, not wait for the next election to mobilise.

Mobilize NOW.

Well, I voted for the Democrats today, and it made me a little sick to my stomach. Of course, that was only in the races in which no Green Party (GP) candidate appeared on the ballot. I voted for the GP candidates where they did appear, certainly in the presidential race. We can't continue as a nation or as a species on this path. It is suicide.

Did the copy/paste, same error.
* Considering the probable outcome, when the polls close tonight, I think I'll just watch V for Vendetta again. Seems appropriate somehow. :wink:


Sorry, it worked for me the first time, but no more. :frowning:
It was an announcement stating that Canadian borders would be closed from Nov 8, 5:00 am to 2024.
I guess it was taken down, for fear it would be too offensive to us. It was not to me.:slight_smile:


Prediction: Hope to hell that I am efin' crazy wrong. The Electoral College system fails. Neither (4+) candidates meet the 50+% requirement in cast electoral votes, after tonight's national vote. If no candidate gets the required (simple majority) electoral votes, that the Constitution requires, then, the decision as to who is our next president-elect is decided by a simple majority vote of the House of Representatives (1 vote per state). What mess could this evolve into? No one could predict. But I digress. Of course this could never happen. ?

From Wikipedia - "The candidate who receives an absolute majority of electoral votes (currently 270) for the office of president or of vice president is elected to that office. The Twelfth Amendment provides for what happens if the Electoral College fails to elect a president or vice president. If no candidate receives a majority for president then the House of Representatives will select the president, with each state delegation (instead of each representative) having only one vote. If no candidate receives a majority for vice president, then the Senate will select the vice president, with each senator having one vote. On four occasions, most recently in the 2000 presidential election, the Electoral College system has resulted in the election of a candidate who did not receive the most popular votes in the election.[11][12]"


Remember, remember the 5th(8th?) of November...
