If you remove Bernie from the mix, all existing prominent American politicians are compromised

by our capitalist system.



You then have a choice between two compromised people when it comes to trade, minimum wage, single payer, civil rights, women's rights, war etc.

As to fair trade (Bernie's idea) Drumpf claims to be in favor to some degree, but forget that, he is lying, he will NEVER do fair trade like Bernie wants.

So both candidates will be friendly to Wall Street, one will allow all non white males to lose all civil rights and probably start a war over a slight about his anatomy, the other wont.

Hmmm...tough decision

NOT

1. "Compromised" = corrupt.

 

Let's call it what it is.

2. Why is that surprising? America is historically a bulwark of capitalism. It

has informed our history and prominent politicians, present and past. Bernie Sanders is an outlier, fwiw. It is rather pejorative to call them "compromised" by capitalism. They are the proud product of the American economic and political system. Not so?

6. The problem with making such an argument on Hillary's behalf is that she speaks so kindly

 

of that other group, the Republicans and even offers specific praise to Republicans who have done horrible damage to minority Americans going so far as to laud Ronald Reagan as the original AIDS activist when of course Reagan remained criminally silent for seven years and tens of thousands of American deaths.
So why is Hillary out there praising Republicans and their policy? She's hugging W and pandering to Rick Warren. That's really very shitty of her, if those are the people who just destroy all civil rights. What's your excuse for her lauding them and speaking kindly of them and lying about their murderous policies that buried thousand of gay Americans? Why isn't your candidate saying what you are saying? If she was I'd like her better, but what she is really saying is that Ron and Nancy Reagan were heroes of the AIDS crisis and shit like that.
