6. no one cares

Your hate for billionaires is noted. Mike is a good guy. Spent millions in VA. He might not be your candidate but an angle compared to Trump. Will you vote for millionaires? Our top contenders are one.

15. He also detained protesters during the GOP convention in 04

to protect Bush from embarrassment. He instituted the racist stop & frisk policy. Then subverted the will of the people to buy himself a third term.

9. Personal wealth of a candidate is not the most important issue for me.

I would consider it among the other factors for or against them.

19. I'll vote for nearly anyone who isn't Trump

And we'd better all start thinking that way. Fuck this "my vote is my special act of self-expression" shit.

And no, I'm not "telling you", as if I think I can command you, what you have to do. (God, I get sick of that totally-missing-the-point "you can't tell me how to vote!" reaction.)

I am saying, flat out, however, what the smartest and least selfish way to vote is.

20. Only on occasion do they work out. FDR was wealthy and for some odd reason was a

decent human being and an epic president.

22. I hate to break it to,you, but anti-Semite and racist. He would not support a law against lynching,

his anti-Semitic immigration policy meant death for hundreds of thousands, and he signed off on
Japanese internment camps. Enlightened labor laws did not apply to agriculture, with so many POC workers, and his policies reflected his personal views.

, The 2016 presidential election cycle and its three prominent candidates are being held up as representing polarizing interests that are emblematic of the political, economic and cultural tensions of our time. Yet, a look back at the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt reveals some familiar tones and policy positions that capture those of Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.

As president, Roosevelt is widely celebrated by American 菟rogressives for fathering the New Deal, which encompassed financial regulations, union rights and a number of social programs. While FDR痴 extramarital affairs are well known, what is less known is his racist and anti-Semitic worldview and white supremacist loyalties, which contributed to the suffering and death of millions of the most vulnerable people.
