Which is it guys ... "we all know how corrupt Clinton is" or "we don't know anything about Clinton"?

Y'all need to get on message.


Many Hillary supporters have no clue really. They depend on CNN or the nightly news for political information.

People on ATS have even said that.

I have been told by people here they will NOT watch something because they did not like the thumbnail pic on the youtube video.

I have no problem with informed people voting for whoever they want. But to choose to be uniformed is unbelievable to me.

Watch and read everything you can people, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

I countered your crap about the imagined impeachment of the IRS Director above. Read that.

Wow, you've established that there may be dirty money in politics. Impressive.

Weren't you the one concerned about staying on topic?

Does any of that ... er, I'll be charitable and call it "info" have anything to do with the Democratic Convention?

Your experience is different from mine completely.

The folks I know supporting Clinton are well-informed, well-educated, clear-minded. They don't have any illusions about her.

On the other hand, the average Trump supporter (and I have to qualify this by "I live in Georgia") knows NOTHING about his actual positions on the issues (as vague as they are) and the only thing they are interested in is some sort of fascist-totalitarian-religious fusion they think he's going to bring and magically make them safe, fix the economy, get rid of all the undesirables, and re-establish Christianity.

YMMV

I'd rather see patriotism based in a commitment to American values myself ... rather than thinking the number of flags (made in China?) determines one's loyalty to this country.

I'd say something about superficiality, but ... why?


I just want to say I agree with this. It is frustrating to see people being judged by how much red white and blue they wear.

I think it is equally ridiculous to claim that having a US flag is somehow offensive to illegal immigrants, as progressives have done in the past. It makes me wonder if that is the reason that no flags were shown during the speakers concerned with the undocumented, that were saying things like Eva Longoria saying the border crossed her.

If the idea of the flag didn't matter to dems, why would they not have one day one, and then have them day two? This definitely was not an accident

It's disgusting that Republicans have nominated a guy who has called on Russia to hack U.S servers. The guy has no loyalty but to himself. Hillary is not perfect, not by a long shot, but she is absolutely the smartest choice this election. Trump is a traitor to the people and will go down in history as the worst presidential candidate of all time. He hurts the Republican Party every day, and the impact on their reputation will be lasting. It seems every election the Republican Party sinks lower and lower in principle and their grip on reality. Once they lose Chachi, who will they have left? They're scraping bottom and calling themselves winners. They are very much detached from reality.

Quote where his asked Russia to hack US servers please.

What he said in the conference today was that no one could find the 30000 emails Clinton deleted, and he asked Russia to release them. This was a joke pointing out that Russia probably already has these emails. Even if you don't tthink it was a joke (which I know is what you will say) he didn't say, "Russia, please hack Hillary's email and show us them". He is showing that they probably already have hacked her.

Excuse my ignorance on this, but if Hilary wins, will this be the first time a president who was impeached for lying under oath to a federal grand jury, was given another role in the White House after his impeachment?

As soon as you show willingness to bend equally on both sides I'all consider your comment thoughtful. Everyone knows what he was saying. It was an open call on Russia to hack U.S. Servers and leak info to hurt his opponent.

I don't care if Russia hacks or leaks. I do care about a presidential candidate calling on Russia to hack servers to help him defeat his opponent. That's not the kind of person who belongs in in the White House.

Your charity is not needed, you tell me if any of the above is relevant to the discussion of the DNC convention. Here are a few primers to help get you started:

Who is the nominee for the Democratic Party?

What organizations is that person involved with?

What image is being portrayed about that nominee?

Now, unless you think that someone other than Hillary is the democratic nominee, that she is not involved with the Clinton Foundation/CGI, and/or that the image of said nominee has no bearing upon the convention, then yes this is all fair game.

That attitude of "well, dirty money is part of politics," is a HUGE part of what is wrong with America.

You just keep accepting it when it's your side or try and say "they do it too," and point to the republicans so that tells me you don't really care about the character of our leaders because "It's bread and circuses. Shadows and shadow-puppets. Both, all, any sides."

Since this is the case, why even make a big deal about it at all?

I mean if it's all shadow puppets anyway...

By the size of her wallet (s), I would say that it was the public that served her well.

I know without any doubt that its a [SNIP].


Well that was harsh.

We say we don't know because we don't know, Randy. I live with the anxiety and angst that it could be Trump.
Share the feeling.

I didn't see the part where Wikileaks releases the newest email dump at 10 pm.
Oh, the DNC doesn't want that on the schedule?

I am patiently waiting.

No, you aren't stupid. You are fully aware of what I meant.
When Hillary worked for the government, it wasn't about public service. It was about her using her positions to line her wallet.
Deny it if you want, but what she has done is as plain as the nose on your face.... beak, as it is.
