36. Democrats are not monolithic.

I keep seeing post saying they are having trouble deciding between Hillary and Bernie, as if both are somehow the same. No, they are not.
Bernie is much more like the Democrats of old, before they moved Right, to keep up with the rightward movement of the Republicans.
Hillary is part of the same problem Obama is. Their support of big business, big banks and Wall Street, over Main Street and the people trying to survive on an ever smaller pay check.
Granted, a Hillary would be better than anyone from the Republican's overstuffed clown car, but we need to do better that just not as bad.
We need to start running more real Democrats. We need to get our manufacturing jobs back into this country. We need to repair and replace our crumbling infrastructure. We need to make those that can most afford it, to pay their fair share of taxes, instead of balancing the nation budget on the back of the rest of us.
We need to find a way to extract ourselves from the Middle East. That is a money pit by design. Cut our so-called defense budget back to something reasonable. There is not any sane reason anywhere, on why we have to outspend the rest of the world on "Defense".
Bring our troops home and put them to work, paying living wages, to repair and up-grade our crumbling infrastructure. The spin off from supplying the materials, tools and machinery, food, housing and recreation, etc., would kick-start our economy big time.
Keep the above in mind when favoring one candidate over another.
