There *is* a difference between Democrats and Republicans

Example, Jimmy Carter vs. Ronald Regan. Different universe.

However, barring a couple social issues, there is *NOT* much differnce between HRC (and other third way DOINOs) and Repiblicans,

-Both favor massive, complex, pro Corporate trade laws
-Both favor massive influx of H1B visas
-Both favor strict, punative drug laws
-Both are pro Defence
-Both are for private prisons
-Both are pro death penalty
-Both put corporate interests over the environment, ie fracking and pipelines
-Both endorse other republicans commonly
-Both admire Kissinger
-Both are agressive posturing war hawks

2. Hillary is female!

I suppose Dianne F and Madeline A are other quasi-right wing Democratic females.
But they triangulate less. Hillary is always tacking to snag this issue or that. Like a tennis game.

5. "Barring a couple social issues"...

 

Yeah, those pesky things like protecting voting rights, protecting civil right, protecting abortion rights, fighting for equal pay, fighting for family leave...

In addition to wanting to expand health care coverage, reduce the burden of college debt, putting tighter regulations on Wall Street, raising taxes on the highest earners...

In addition to not repealing the social safety net...

In addition to not making racism the law of the land, deporting twelve million people from this country.

Yeah, the Democrats are exactly the same as the Republicans.

Tell yourself that.

6. If only Her Majesty truly supported half the things you listed!

She talks like she does sometimes. But then you look at her record, or what she has said at other times and her support is not that strong.

"Putting tighter regulations on Wall Street" is the biggest laugher in your list. You cannot be that na´ve.

7. She was, is , and will always remain our Goldwater Girl

 

She hasn't protected anything and has only adopted Sanders policies to try and court our votes. Not many are falling for her shtick.

8. I don't think a Republican President could have gotten Clinton's legislation through

NAFTA, Welfare Reform, the Crime Bill, Telecommunications Act, repeal of Glass-Steagall, deregulation of financial derivatives. Pro corporate and anti-poor. The Democrats in Congress would have been kicking and screaming at a lot of this legislation had it come from a Republican President.

9. ...

Jack Krass could see no facts
His wife could see the lying
And so between them both, you see,
They fought over the platter of right-wing propaganda and she won because she's smarter.
