Response to boston bean (Original post)

30. I am also totally excited.

 

Since some here like to claim I'm a RW plant, although I am not sure where I'm supposed to draw my pay for that, I decided to answer this thread tongue in cheek, and risk the hide.

I'm really excited that this way both of the major party nominee's will be big time pro business. Obviously anyone the Republicans nominate will be pro big business, but it's always touchy with the Democratic Party. They've been known to nominate someone who is totally on board with regulating the business environment, and that just won't do.

As a "republican plant" according to some I'm obviously in favor of helping the Republicans, and that means passing the TPP. We must have it. Without it we can't finish our lifelong plan of making huge amounts of money while everyone is unemployed other than service jobs passing the rich the appetizers and drinks.

Republicans just can't stand the idea of protectionist policies, and with Hillary, Republican Plants would get a big laugh as we watch our stock prices jump.

The next subject in which Hillary would be a big help to Republicans is NSA spying. Obviously having the NSA utterly ignore the Bill of rights and essentially wipe their asses with the Fourth Amendment is problematic for a Liberal, and thankfully Hillary is not one of them. By keeping the spying going it would allow the know everything about you government agents great latitude in painting any who object as enemies. http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/02/hillary-clintons-evasive-position-on-nsa-spying/386024/

So in case any of you misunderstood my post to think I really am a Republican plant. It was all As a liberal who thinks that the abominations that this nation is taking as the new normal to heart that hurt the unions, hurt the people, and make a mockery of the phrase privacy, I actually feel that Hillary is the worst candidate for those who think that any of these issues matter. While she might be great on women's issues, there are a lot more things to consider when selecting a candidate for our party. I doubt you'll find a candidate for the Democrats running for national office who says that Choice should be limited.

Only Hillary thinks that everything but choice should have limits. Choice did not lead to the economic disaster eight years ago. Choice did not lead to 93 million people not on the job market. Choice did not lead to people living in sewers. And if Choice is all you have for a candidate, than that candidate is either too shallow, or just plain wrong for the party, and the nation.

But by the time I get to vote, the race will be essentially over. I'll be stuck with Hillary. In all Honesty, it won't matter. Hillary won't win Georgia in the general election. But maybe I can get a Democrat on the county commission, and we can make some real progress locally on traffic signs.
