Have no idea why you are informing me about Trump and Trump supporters. I get that, and you know this.
Obama was a tool of the large corporations, and will be such until his final curtain drops.
You act as if what happened in the 90s isn’t entirely relevant today. It is entirely relevant. Who said anything about that it’s the end all? Huh? That’s the whole point of my bringing it up again and again to people like yourself who DO NOT GET IT in regard to the intentional remaking of the Democratic Party to serve corporate interests. The so-called Third Rail.
Surely you realize that the Powell Memo has everything to do with where the Republican Party is today, right? Well same goes for the DLC. Today’s rebirth of the DLC is the insufferable corporate servicing prick Joe Lieberman’s group. Same neoliberal economic think tank propaganda completely in line with the DLC, both Clintons, Feinstein, Schumer, Harry clucking Reid, the legendary Max Baucus working in tandem with Wellpoint, and the sorry list goes on and on and on.
I mean, you do recall Obama naming long time enemy of the New Deal, Alan Simpson to head the infamous “Catfood Commission”, and Obama’s toying with introducing cuts to Social Security via that commission’s proposals.
Your last paragraph, you should direct at posters that gave anyone grief for voting for Clinton. Go find a post where I have done so. Good luck!
I have stated time and again, there ARE good Democrats. The problem is where the power center of this party lies. That CURRENT POWER CENTER has its roots in the DLC, and the resultant neoliberal economics put into play in the Democratic Party by the Presidency of Bill Clinton.
I have detailed the major bills pushed for and signed into law by Clinton that was absolutely instrumental in fostering this corporate coup.
But here you are, pretending that none of that matters.
You simply don’t get it.
Sanders and his supporters were screwed over big time by the corporate servicing Democrat named Hillary Clinton who has a lot more in common with Republicans than you would dare admit to.
Her campaign was so dirty, so dishonest, and so damaging to this country. She gave us Trump. She worked tirelessly to kill the only true progressive movement in this country with a chance to at least have a President willing to fight for the majority of people in this country, even those who didn’t get he was fighting for them.
I have given Sanders credit where it is due, and I’ve also criticized him.
I base my arguments on a clear line of principle, and don’t excuse any politician just because they are in some damn club.
I mean, look at where we are at!!! The US is very near at the bottom of the list, in regard to equality. This plummet has been over the span of the last 40 years. Fantasize all you want, that it has been primarily the fault of the Republican Party, if that makes you feel any better.
Instead of moving opposite where the Republican Party has moved as a counter force, the Democratic Party, post DLC, has simply moved to the right as well.
But of course, you will offer up many excuses for that as well.
It is entirely your prerogative.
