This morning I watched her interview with Bill Moyers, and every single thing she said makes absolute sense.

I honestly don't understand how ANYONE could demean or bash her - her intelligence oozes from every pore, and her points are absolutely the TRUTH. This country WILL go down the toilet if the things she stands for do not happen.

You all can call her an "airhead" or a ditz or a liar or out of touch or whatever you like, but THIS WOMAN makes more sense regarding domestic and economic issues that any other human on Capitol Hill.

Elizabeth Warren on Fighting Back Against Wall St. Giants


“Today the game is rigged – rigged to work for those who have money and power… The optimism that defines us as a people has been beaten and bruised. It doesn’t have to be this way.”

...Sen. Warren talks to Bill this week about the problems facing middle-class Americans. “Washington works for those who can hire armies of lobbyists, armies of lawyers, and get just the rules they want. It doesn’t work so well for American families,” Sen. Warren tells Bill.

“The only chance we’ve got is if those families will turn back to their government and say, ‘I demand that you work for me, not for the billionaires, not for the millionaires. That you work for me.’”


Now, fellow ATSers, even if the very word "Progressive" makes you shudder and cringe (which I think is because you don't really understand what it MEANS, but I can still attempt to shed some light on it - even if you bash, ignore, flame, or lolz me) - PLEASE watch this interview.

Tell me ONE POINT she makes in this video interview that is "airheaded nonsense". I don't want to talk about any of her past - just about what she SAYS IN THIS INTERVIEW. If her voice is not heard on Capitol Hill, or in Town Hall Meetings and pre-election rallies, we are ALL sunk.

Can you all, please, just leave party lines behind for half an hour and LISTEN to her? Calmly, with your emotional armor on and your kneejerk equipment disengaged...and tell me what is WRONG with her ideas?

She is the kind of person we need to be running this country. No worries - she (wisely) does NOT want to be President, so you can relax - but then, who in their right mind would WANT to be POTUS? The most capable people are NEVER the ones who want to be in power. So, keeping that in mind, I beg you to listen to her, and to think about your own lives, your own concerns, and those of your community neighbors, for just a few minutes.

There are dozens (if not 100s) of articles out there about her right now - simply do a search and you will find plenty regarding her recently. I know there are threads here about her, too, but things are heating up now - as she says, this is the Eleventh Hour - the elections are 8 and a half weeks away. That is it. PLEASE, think carefully - beyond labels, beyond Red/Blue Donkeys/Elephants - and if you still think she's ridiculous, then fine.

You all are smart people - please, make some smart choices (Obama was not one, even though many people hoped he would be). I don't think someone like Warren would A) cowtow to the money or B) flip her stance. (But then again - who can we trust? Surely there's SOMEONE!)
Can you all do that - have an honest look at and open-minded listen to her points? Especially those of you who think you know what Progressives stand for; I open a vein every day that I come on here (and to the internet in general) - I force myself to read opinions and articles and news pieces that I expect to disagree with - just to ensure I am not ignorant of the issues and various platforms. Can you do the same for the sake of honest, intelligent debate?

I decided I'd like to find out! I'd be very interested to hear back from anyone who is 'surprised' by what she says, having expected something different - and discovers their ideas of what "Progressive" means were/are not, well, accurate.
Thanks.

Buzzy

She is still a hack piece if she doesn't expose the Central Banking Oligarchs.

She can blame wallstreet all she wants but the Federal Reserve is where the true power lies.

THis is more Marxists type rhetoric to further demonize the free market for destablization in order to push their Socialist Marxists agenda.

Now u know why the Central Banking Oligarchs love to bankroll Marxists to power. It helps further enslave the country in debt through socialism to the globalists bankers.

You can't possibly have watched the interview in 90 seconds - oh, sorry, six minutes. Perhaps you speed-read the transcript.
I want to address what she says IN THIS INTERVIEW. Can you manage it without name-calling?

In my opinion, Wall Street and the Central Banks go hand in hand. Inseparable. Think of it that way, maybe?

Or not. I will watch your star count, then, and add a +one for yourself - at least that way I'll know how many couldn't be bothered to hear her out. In any case....

Thanks for replying!

Yes, but blaming wallstreet is the same as dividing the masses. U pitt one group against another to distract from the real culprit. U have to identify the exact problem. The Feds pumping billions a month into wallstreet is causing the problem. Ron Paul message is more clear and concise going after the real problem. Wallstreet and the rest are just byproducts for the Central Bankers. It's like ur going after the low level guys but u can never touch the man behind the curtain if u don't go after the boss.

Plus she supports a lot of socialist types of views. It's a planned and control economy where the political hacks get to decide people's fate. It sounds good, but that depends on who is doing the control.

A broken clock can still be right, twice per day. Propaganda piece.

She is losing her support base.

That doesn't mean she's wrong. It just means that people aren't listening to what she's saying.

It would be grand if you could post a clip or two from your links to show us what your beef is.
Plus, adding a summarizing second line would be good. Thanks.

Yeah, I'm not talking about foreign policy - or Israel - I'm talking about fiscal demise and the lives of Americans.

I just reread your post. You couldn't be more mistaken about her points. She is talking about how the big banks (credit card companies, et al) are the BIGGEST lobbyists in Washington - and how that is WRONG.

She is absolutely right in her message.
The game is rigged for the wealthy and powerful.
They own the government and use the government against us to benefit them and their cronies.

No matter how you slice or who is saying it, we need to get corporate and banking lobbyists out of our government and restore our government that is working for everyone.

You know I like you Buzzy but this is all the same old platitudes other populists make. She is part of the system, where lobbying has been entrenched for 150 years, and I suspect she, like all the others, is doing nothing to change the paradigm while being swayed or influenced by the ones she agrees with.

None of them are going to outlaw lobbying since this is how they are able to retain their power.

" Elizabeth Warren: The People's Champion "

She is?

Just like Lenin, Stalin, Ho Chi Minh, Mao, Castro, Chavez, etc. etc.

Remember she is hatched from the same batch of eggs Obama was.

When she is elected President, she will go Agenda21 full blast.

She is over-educated and has risen above her abilities.

Her interview was simple puppy-petting and kitten-brushing.

I'm not convinced she even understands what she was talking about.

The interview was scripted and she obviously had to rehearse.



Added: I forgot to mention Hitler and Mussolini

I like you too, Gus (may I call you Gus?), but I don't think you listened to her. Even if you just consider them "talking points" - can't you at least read/listen to what she says IN THIS INTERVIEW?

She is against lobbying. Look at the title of the article I linked - she's fighting AGAINST Wall Street and lobbyists.
Here it is again:

“Today the game is rigged – rigged to work for those who have money and power… The optimism that defines us as a people has been beaten and bruised. It doesn’t have to be this way.”

...Sen. Warren talks to Bill this week about the problems facing middle-class Americans. “Washington works for those who can hire armies of lobbyists, armies of lawyers, and get just the rules they want. It doesn’t work so well for American families,” Sen. Warren tells Bill.

“The only chance we’ve got is if those families will turn back to their government and say, ‘I demand that you work for me, not for the billionaires, not for the millionaires. That you work for me.’”


So, how does that rankle you, my friend? Seems she's saying the same thing you are.

Free Market?
LMAO

There is no free market when Big Corporations and Banking own our government to tailor policies beneficial to them that everyone else has to abide by.

Boot out the Corporate and Banking Lobbyists!

Their policies are destroying this country:

I took the time to listen.

She is against some lobbying. The problem is that all of Washington survives through lobbying. She offers no real solution other then to 'take back Washington' (paraphrased). The only way is to eliminate all lobbying but that is never going to happen, all of them benefit from lobbyists. Every last slimy one.

Thank you, jacobe, for at least honoring the OP request and addressing what she says in this interview.

Apparently some members won't listen to her due to preexisting misconceptions. Which, of course, always goes such a long way toward resolution of immediate problems and the options available to solve them. (Not.)

But, I understand - I can only rarely stomach listening to Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh myself.
LOL!!

Which you ignore the video of her defending shelling of schools and hospitals in the second link.

Continuing education indeed. More like continuing propaganda.

Yep.
