Adelson's defection was a sign

That the Democratic party is on the right course. He flipped over to the GOP because they are more staunchly pro-israel, and even more business friendly than the third-way dem's he has supported for so long. He is a trump supporter now, pledging $100 million to his super pac. Lady liberty shudders as the last vestiges of a functioning democracy fall away, and a ruling elite party emerges, hell-bent on appeasing their corporate masters on the backs of the middle class. How did we get here? How are the rural working class poor so gullible as to be tricked into voting directly against their own best interests for the sake of a few polemic moral issues.

1. Defection? He's always had an open wallet for the GOP candidate.

2. Adelson's defection is a sign that GOP is more fucked-up in that regard,

but that alone is not a sign that the Democratic Party is on the right course -there are many ways to measure that (BTW, while addressing the AIPAC conference, Clinton didn't even utter the word "Palestinians".
Nevada convention is a sign that the party is not on the right course. The fact that we have lobbyists as super delegates, that their votes are 10,000 times worth more than the average person's, that we HAVE super delegates, the fact that we have a former president raking in hundreds of millions from moneyed interests while 68% of Americans have less than 1,000 dollars in their bank accounts, the fact that we're not sovereign over the media, the fact that the democratic president has been conducting drone war all over MENA...They're all red flags telling me that we're utterly broken as a party.

6. I gather that she doesn't need Adelson to prove that she's a hawk on this issue. nt

5. What defection? He's always backed Republicans, never Democrats.

Fact check yourself before blurting out this kind of fiction.

9. Be Careful What You Pay For, Shelly

 

Trump doesn't seem inclined to worship Israel the way all the other candaidates have pledged their souls to do.

12. Welcome new DUer -

I think you probably meant to post this out in the general forums.

This is the socialist progressive group.
