One day, Hillary might be a good Democratic Party candidate for national office

When Wall Street doesn't have enough control over our legislative process.

When big banks are not treated fairly within the American legal system.

When peace and stability in the world becomes more than we can bear.

When Mexico and Asia deserve US jobs more than the US does.

When those with money and power have trouble getting representation in Washington.

When giant multinational corporations need more Government protection from local competition.

When politicians become too focused on the best interests of the majority.

When pigs fly.

Tell everyone in the USA that they are worthless crap without a college degree

then, charge them $100,000 for a college degree.

Then, outsource their jobs to China and India (and now Vietnam), and build lots of for-profit prisons when the crime rate goes up.

Charge them $250 for a 20 minute office visit and another $200 for a $1 drug because of neglected health.

Finally, fight against minimum wage increases but increase rents by 50%.

It's a perfect scam. If you've been to Asia or Mexico and witnessed the brutal working conditions and poverty, that's the end game for Wall Street here in the US.

There's only one person from the Democratic Party who seems willing to point this out everywhere they go.

Why is that?

Number one reason businesses fail?- Arrogance of leadership.

CEOs and executive staff assume they are unbeatable.

They make stupid choices that hurt consumers because they believe consumers have no other choice.

They aggressively collude on pricing, or otherwise threaten competitors, shaft consumers, shaft employees.

They hire lobbyists to fight for rule changes allowing them to consolidate power to limit competition.

We are seeing exactly the same thing with the DNC.

Ironically, the arrogance of Debbie and Hillary deserves credit for allowing Bernie to gain so much traction.

But it comes at a horrible price.

Things could be so much better than they are right now if we didn't have a Democratic Party limiting competition to a single Wall Street sponsored candidate.

There are right-wing conservatives who call themselves Democrats - they are here because

Donald Trump is pushing the limits of what it means to be conservative, opening new territory, desensitizing people to what is properly defined as fascism. From the Democratic side, if you listen closely, you'll hear the bow-ties smugly reciting the virtues of "market-based, capital solutions" and "enterprise-level stimulus". It's all the same thing - taking money away from the middle class and below (who by virtue of their low status clearly don't deserve it) and giving it to rich people (who are clearly rich because they are such valuable contributors to the nation).

For the right wing in both parties, it's win/win. Trump both challenges and emboldens every conservative. Now, don't get me wrong, there's a difference between the two parties. In economic terms, the always sensible DNC is offering the nation a model of corporate-run state without all the embarrassing Mussolini-style antics of leading Republicans.

But really the leadership core in both parties share an economic model of an exploitable and benign citizen/subject. Both political parties are converging into a plutocratic model of corporate-state whose governance and favoritism differs in magnitude, but not direction.

In other words:
"You can deal with the evil 3rd way corporate asses at the DNC or I'll bring my friend Donald over to discuss the other options".

Conservatives are finally getting all the attention, Wall Street power and authoritarianism they long for.

The truth is, win or lose Wall Street Democrats never have to worry about affording an abortion. Or health care. Or education. Or anything. After all, it's not their fault you don't make $250,000 a year!

Sure, Democratic conservatives are sort of mushy on the whole gay marriage thing, much like Clinton, but really, they enjoy their privileged lives and neither DNC nor RNC will challenge the status quo. Sure they want world peace, but they're not about to give up their 12% effective tax rate to have it.

We have the option of changing course by voting for the someone who understands that, like global warming, our other environmental problems of injustice, poverty and inequality are man-made. We can start to fix it by voting for the proper candidate.

Don't throw your vote away on the status quo. Make your vote count. We need to change direction from right to left.

How do we shake the conservative plague Wasserman Shultz and Hillary have cast

upon the Democratic Party like a disease of medieval proportions?

DNC is out of hand. They have become crazy with power, as bad as the arrogant above-the-law, too-big-too-fail banks whose asses we are expected to get down on our knees and kiss every election cycle.

It is fair to ask, "who is DNC representing? Real people or Wall Street crooks?"

We need a correction and thank god there is relief available.

Bernie is the best thing to happen to the Democratic Party in my generation.

We can start right there.

When you are in the booth making your choice between Bernie, Martin and Hillary

you will be presented with a rare opportunity to change the direction of the nation. Such an opportunity comes only once per generation, if at all.

You can right the wrongs and make a statement that enough is enough.

Are you strong enough to do the right thing? For the nation? For yourself?

Or are you going to do what Wall Street is demanding, hoping that if you do what they say, they'll stop hurting you?

There are two candidates who deserve the nomination based on rock solid principals and a genuine level of engagement and understanding of the real world problems facing a majority of Americans.

And then there's Hillary.

Are you going to make a difference? Or not?

Hillary, Wasserman and DNC are smearing shit over anyone to the left of Reagan...

and it isn't because they believe they need to do it to win. The conservative brain-trust is doing it because they really want the Democratic Party to move even more to the right. They want more power to corporations, more power to military, less power to working Americans.

For sure, Clinton's supporters actually believe the shit they are saying. Shit like "inclusive capitalism" "profit-sharing" "trickle-down" "supply-side" "projection of force" What's old is new again. Clinton is running a retro-Reagan campaign.

Clinton and her supporters are using the language of sensible Republican conservatives.

The right wing is taking cover in the Democratic Party, tucking in behind the Republicans, a bit to the left. That fact, doesn't excuse the Corporate/Government partnership model keeping Hillary and her bow tie contingent of pragmatists all googly-eyed.

Hillary has been DEAD wrong on gay marriage, Iraq War, banking deregulation, welfare cutbacks, increased prison sentencing, privatization, offshoring to Asia and Mexico - she is NOT going to bring the improvements we need to Government and the US. She channels Republican on these issues.

And despite the failures of her ideology, conservative Democrats say they want Government to be run even more like a (fucked up) business.

OK, then.

Given the collusion between Clinton and DNC, charge them all with anti-trust violations. There is no good that can come from having Clinton move the Democratic Party even more to the Wall Street right.

There's only one response to the DNC and Hillary's move to the hard right territory occupied by wing nuts like JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Rahm Emanuel and Larry Summers:

"HELL NO, WE WON"T GO!"

Those bow tie conservatives squatting in the Democratic Party have become a noose around good government and real justice for the people.

Have we gone 24 hours without a Clinton/DNC fuck up? Email? Web leak? Debates? Nixon is

laughing his ass off at the irony of it all.

The golden girl is running quite the enterprise isn't she?

Can't wait until she puts her genius powers to work for the greater good of the middle class and below.

We are so fucked.

You know that, right?

It's 3 AM, who do you trust when the phone call comes in?

"Mr/Madam President..."

"Yes, what is it?"

"Goldman is unwinding... there's a run on their stock, they are $430 billion underwater"

"What about Blankfein?"

"We don't know, he was last seen in St. Croix on his yacht."

"What are our options?"

"We can take the bank into receivership, dismiss the executive staff and begin an investigation, or bail them out with tax credits and cuts to social programs and jobs. The first option would hurt Goldman's executives and investors and involves great political risk to Congressional campaigns. The second option distributes the pain across the middle class and below who have no real power to object."

"Understood. Here's my decision..."


Who do you trust to do the right thing?

Easy.

Bernie would do the right thing. Hillary would do the wrong thing.

Hillary is very confused about technology. It can be challenging, but also important for economic

development and quality of life.

Hillary should have learned by now that that poor management of tech resources (even something simple like email) can cause political and economic difficulties for the middle class and below.

That's why it's NOT a good idea to send every fucking tech job to India, China and Vietnam.

I don't trust her to do the right thing as far as technology, jobs and the profits being held tax-free, overseas.

She seems clumsy and awkward on maintaining US competitiveness in the areas of economic development and progress for the middle class and below.

We can't continue to outsource our way to economic justice.
