2 reminders: COATTAILS and ORIGINAL nytimes article PRO BERNIE and GREED IS GOOD INVESTOR PRO B

INVESTOR WHO WAS MODEL FOR GORDEN GEKKO: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2016/03/14/why-a-wall-street-investor-endorsed-senator-bernie-sanders/

ORIGINAL NY TIMES ARTICLE COMPLIMENTARY TO BERNIE: https://web.archive.org/web/20160314164825/http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/15/us/politics/bernie-sanders-amendments.html?partner=rss&emc=rss

Bernie never promised anything. He only promises that his efforts will be maximized to make change for the common people. He expects a high turnout to bring democrats into Congress. He can make appointsments based on smart, honest people instead of big money corporate shills. He can use executive actions to make changes. The thing is his change - his mission - is a progressive one.

Anything you say about Bernie will be equally true of Hillary. So whose values do you prefer? Bernie's or Hillary's? Peace or war? Change for the people or status quo for the moneyed? Re-regulation or continue deregulation? Independence from big money or dependence on big money?

OMG, people get a clue. Quit thinking about emotions and loyalties and look at issues. Which of these people support and act up values that you agree with. Who is the more honest? the more independent? the less rehearsed and whose message has been consistent throughout? Bill - impeding traffic at voting stations and bellowing for Hillary. Deregulation Bill. Hillary, the goldwater girl who pushed Bill to the right so that he could finally win in Arkansas.

I don't hate Hillary. If her values were my values, I 'd vote for her. But they are not. Let's go with the status quo. I guess in the end that's what the people prefer. Okay.
