Politics isn't about reality...

It's about perception and Hillary is reading from the script the DNC gives her. Do you not think the Democrats don't know exactly what their base wants to hear.

If the GOP was smart they would echo Hillary because there's a lot more poor people than rich old white men that the Republicans are primarily composed of.

I still contend that Bush has been chosen. The campaigns and the BS rhetoric ave nothing to do with the final result as the 2000 elections demonstrated.

Ya'll ready for the next war? It's an established pattern imo.

Do you think any politician actually cares about anyone other than the Corporate Oligarchy?

imo...all ideologies have just become a selfserving form of intellectual masturbation. Have fun!!

Same old crap from...well...old crap. Make yourself appear as a savior by calling out a devil (1%), lie and keep lying regardless if the truth is staring you in the face and point out the opposition as stupid, blind or against the voters. Classic left wing tactics. Too bad they work. Obama has been bad enough...if Hillary gets in I know there is no going back to sanity. At that point, the people have spoken, they deserve what they get and have put the nails in their own caskets.

I don't think this is a big deal.

I think she'll do more to protect us against the one percent than Bush.

The thing is that all politicians at the federal level are funded by big money and one per centers. you have to be, to play on the big stage. I think that will change soon. It already could. You could get your name out there without spending a single dollar if you knew what you were doing.. with Facebook and twitter and LinkedIn and Ats and Instagram and p interest and everything else. You really could. I think the internet is the last great equalizer.

I wonder why nobody does that? Why a grassroots politician with a few silicon valley friends who still holds idealistic views of the world. Why couldn't he get a grassroots org going and dominate the national discussion in the next presidential election? Who needs mass media?

Anyway... my second point is that I don't like the 1% who rule our lives but.. if a super rich guy came into my business ...would I turn them away? Would any of you?

Therefore every post I make about rich people.... would I be hypocritical because I've taken their money? Hmmmm.. Where do we draw the line there?

Income inequality is a big issue in this election so expect to see all of the candidates trying to "out middle class" the others.

"Let me tell you a story... about a boy whose first car was a USED Mercedes. A boy who had to fly first class instead of on a private jet. A boy who had to spend a summer in Martha's Vineyard because it was rainy in Cancun that year. That boy is here in front of you today and I understand what the average American has to go through just to put food on the table!"

How?

The one percent control everything.

On the other hand, I do not want a broke person as President. I just want someone who doesn't eagerly bend over whenever the 1% come calling.

You got a point there. Can't argue against that one!

There's "rich-poor" and then there's "poor-poor".

Rich-poor means you have to cut back on a few trips and can't afford another car/home.

Poor-poor means you can't put food on the table.


Then there is piss-poor and that's Hiliary.

Can you guys pull a list of Hillary campaign backers?

That should be a interesting read

The old crow has snake oil for sale by the truck load and the sad thing is it will still sell.

Just like when Obama sold us a lemon at that shady used car dealership that one day. New technologies , free health care , creating jobs blah blah blah. If we have learned anything it is mercuns are stupid enough to put another Bush in the white house or whatever stool pigeon candidate the ptb ram down our throats. And mercuh is forever doomed to rehash it's failures. So expect another Bush or Clinton. It is as fake as pro wrestling. The next puppet potus has been pre designated. Expect more of the same. The woman is as crooked as they come. Maybe she will delete her opponents votes too.

Just as Obamas ghost writer the teleprompter guy.




after all ...

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE ? - Hillary Clinton

not even once

what the you talking about? the republicans are responsible for sending missiles to iran during Reagan, starting a war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and crashing this economy during the bush years, in which the middle class hasn't got jack-s**t help from the republicans ever since.....where are the job's, republicans...where are the pay raises, republicans, where is the help for the middle class, republicans.....the GOP is a failed party, and a failed set of ideas....here's the party-line anthem "less taxes and less regulations".....that's it, if you're wealthy, you're golden, if not, you're nothing.

Well whomever ends up being the next president will be facing a nation of pitchforks and torches if the plutocrats are allowed to continue their degradation of this country. Anyone have a guillotine?

I don't think so...

You can't judge the electorate by ATS standards. Most Americans are politically unaware and mostly apathetic and/or drunk. As long as they get their bread, circus, Duck Dynasty, NFL, Nascar, and porn; you got a complacent populace that are mostly very easily led.

The power structure in the US isn't stupid. They knew exactly what they were doing when they designed this culture of fools and unquestioning, ultra conformist work drones.

You make an excellent point, and I agree with you to a point. Perhaps not the next president.

You are correct, they DO know how to play the game. However, even the most complacent amongst us will look up from their mindless escapism eventually. There will come a point, my opinion of course, when even the ignorant will no longer be able to ignore the abuses happening around us.... and when they do, mindless as they may be, they will be as pissed off as the rest of us. Then change, for better or for worse, will happen.

I know. But assuming that we can make a difference with out votes in the general presidential election and assuming that Hillary and Bush get the nomination and assuming that there will be some third party candidates but they'll be unknown and weak. Who do you vote for? The third party candidate to make a point? Or Bush or Hillary?

Just adding that I think the conspiracy is in the primaries and 2 party system. We don't get to chose who gets the nomination and we don't get to add third party candidates to the debates, but we do get to chose which of the two party candidates we get. As in most things the devil is in the small details. They're both basically the same but one might advocate for reduced pollution or LGBT rights more than the other...it's that kind of thing we're voting for.

I think smart money is on "worse" as in chaos, anarchy, race wars and blood in the streets. A desperate populace reverts back into tribalism and dog eat dog brutality. There's also a negative side....

They're all bought and paid for so our votes really don't make a difference.

I know that sounds defeatist, but it's the unfortunate truth. Our political system is a facade that keeps us believing we can somehow influence the future of our country through voting.

Money controls the system, not our votes.

You're right, but I firmly believe that it's in the minor details. Even evil people are people and have things they care about...could be the environment, stronger military, for or against LGBT Rights, Climate change science, NASA...If you really study the candidates you'll see small details that distinquish them that is a reason to vote. Just my opinion.

True, until they're in office, then it all changes.

Obama made a lot of bolt promises and presented himself as somehow different than all the rest but once his address became 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, all that crap went out the window.
