Response to oldandhappy (Reply #19)

26. There is a group called the New Democrat Coalition. Many of our Congress belong to it, along with

 

some governors. They are advised by the Third Way. When I first found their website, last year, it looked and sounded remarkably (and disgustingly) exactly like the Koch's Americans for Prosperity (of the Kochs).

Their agenda was stated as eschewing ideology and working with the GOP. The site was changed a bit when Hillary's campaign started. The list of members is interesting - all the DINOs from Florida are there, and I see how those DINOs vote with the GOP. My rule of thumb now is no vote for anyone who belongs to that, and no vote for anyone who voted for Fast Track, or shilled for the TPP.

Hillary is a "New Democrat", in that she is Third Way all the way, tosses out that liberal ideology, and most of her policies are in line with the GOP/Third Way - war, fracking, the TPP, chipping away at Social Security, etc.

Hillary's style is old-style, but her agenda is New Democrat/Third way. That is what she and Bill represent.
I will not be voting for her.
