33. Highlights the coup fiscally conservative politicians pulled off. Now we're all Kansas
Thu May 12, 2016, 07:05 AM
May 2016

Reference to "What's the Matter with Kansas?"

Social wedge issues determine which Party overseas the distribution of wealth to the top 1% and race-to-the-bottom for the middle class.

Too bad there's not a candidate in the Democratic primary who is saying establishment politics is wrong, who's looking out for the middle class, and who isn't holding Democrats hostage over wedge issues. Yeah, that's top shelf sarcasm.

You hit on something. Social justice doesn't matter to that group. NCTraveler May 2016 #1
Fuck that noise. most of my life, social issues were far more important cali May 2016 #6
Not sure why you took anything I said so personally. NCTraveler May 2016 #7

So she's the only liberal worth voting for? Really? TheCowsCameHome May 2016 #75
In November, yes. Since she'll be the only one running for the WH. baldguy May 2016 #84
This, like everything else you've written in this thread, is false. jack_krass May 2016 #86
So, by your words you either believe the RW lie that Clinton isn't a liberal baldguy May 2016 #91
1) HRC is NOT a Liberal, 2) I advocate people to vote their concience jack_krass May 2016 #96
