If Third Way Democrats continue to the right with TPP, union bashing, privatization it's because [View all]

they don't care if Republicans win.

Let's face it - we know that representing historically liberal values like good wages and benefits for working families, environmental protections and strong regulation for industry gets out to vote.

But today all you hear from the Third Way is abstract bullshit like "inclusive capitalism" and "wealth envy".

Wow. Let's fire up the base.

When you hear mealy-mouthed PowerPoint jargon like "inclusive capitalism" it's just another way to say "trickle down" which is the idiotic idea that if you legislate exclusively for the rich and corporations, eventually some crumbs will fall to the floor for the little people to fight over. It also means Larry Summers is hiding in the broom closet, waiting to sweep another million jobs to Asia.

Be warned as Wasserman Shultz's DNC doubles down on conservative politics. Third Way Democrats are close enough to Republicans that it really, really doesn't matter to them who wins as long as their corporate interests are served.

The Third Way doesn't give a fuck which establishment McCandidate wins. Hillary or Jeb, they will continue to profit either way.

Will you?
