Today’s Thought:

Hillary rails against the many ludicrous positions on social issues embraced by Republicans, confident that our senses of justice and fairness will be sufficiently offended that we will ignore all the similarities shared by Republicans and her Wall Street Democrat allies.
Rounding up and deporting immigrants, no rape or incest exceptions for abortion, voter suppression schemes, repealing Obamacare, opposing criminal background checks for gun buyers, etc, are all obvious differences between most Republicans and most Democrats.
But on foreign policy, military interventionism, monetary policy, corporate welfare, campaign donations by corporations, appointing industry executives and lobbyists to positions overseeing their industries, agricultural price supports, cruel wild Mustang roundups, and the killing of wildlife for cattle ranchers by the Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services, a virtually wholly owned subsidiary of the cattle industry, there is no appreciable difference between establishment Republicans and establishment Democrats.

  1. Sad but true, it’s the same here in Canada. Virtually nothing has changed since Trudeau was elected he is fixated on refugees to the exclusion of all else. I couldn’t hold my nose to vote for the liberals knowing this would happen. Voting Green at least allows me to face myself in the mirror, even if they never get elected.


  2. Of course there is no big difference. The cost of running campaigns is so high that politicians have to rely on the same big donors and the same special interests to run for office. Once elected, a presidential candidate will face a Congress elected by the same big donors and hounded by their lobbyists.
