Recently, I was delighted to hear long-time consistantly liberal maverick Bernie Sanders was running for president. Finally, someone we can get behind.
Soon, you will observe Clinton present herself as a progressive champion – a total separation from the truth. Do NOT be fooled!
I will use this post to list reasons why we should support him, and also reasons not to support the Clinton aristocracy.
[This is a WIP.]
Reasons to favor Bernie Sanders
- He is consistent in his vote [sources needed]
- He’s a true progressive [sources needed]
- He would abolish big money in politics
- He’s a pacifist, voted against the Iraq war
Reasons Clinton is the continuity of what’s wrong in Washington
- Clintons rake in millions in foreign donations
- Clintons gather millions in speaking fees as legal bribes. [tally total $]. Even their daughter, is getting up to 75,000 a pop to talk about.. diarrhea. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/10/us/politics/chelsea-clinton-follows-parents-lead-as-a-paid-speaker.html
- Hillary voted for the Iraq war, often criticize Obama for not sending more troops (eg. Libya, Syria, Ukraine).
