6. I'm really tired of seeing this "There's no difference" meme

Let's pretend for a moment that Sanders wins the Presidency--how does a President who has absolutely zero power to create laws overhaul our broken system?

How does he get Citizens United overturned by himself? Have you forgotten about the actual lawmakers? Not all of whom will be as progressive as he is and he certainly isn't going to get a sweeping majority for his first two years in office.

As a matter of fact, no matter which Democratic candidate wins, the next two years will be more of the same bullshit we're seeing now.

And we still haven't touched on the glaring differences between the two parties. Do you really believe that a President Hillary Clinton will pick the same types of Supreme Court justices as a President Cruz or Trump?

Do you really think a President Clinton will roll back all the executive orders President Obama has signed? Guaranteed a President Cruz would do so to all the executive orders giving the LGBTQ community protections.

If you really can't see the difference between the two parties then you're either ignorant or willfully blind.
