The US has had socialist policies for some time now. What do you think welfare is? How about medicare? Veterans affairs payments?
All socialist policies.
How about subsidies? That's socialism too.
"Red" Barry is no more socialist/communist than Hillary. McCain is a 'liberal' republican and as such will try to distance himself from the left
by all means. The McCains and Clintons are neocons, while Obama may be a socialist.
So what? That's better than a fascist *cough* Bush *cough*.
It looks like he's implying Edwards is his runningmate..
1). Universal Healthcare; Hillary wants this as well. Remember Bush's 'vouchers' for health care/education. Same story, different day.
2). Accountability and sympathy in Washington; help the weak
3). Bashing Bush/McCain
5). World class Education
6). Higher minimum wage??? (if you work, you shouldn't be hungry/impoverished); lift people out of poverty (welfare?)
7). End tax breaks on big business that outsource jobs
8). Invest in renewable energy; create new 'green' jobs
9). Invest in transitional job programs
10). No more tax breaks to the wealthy
11). Free savings account with 'nest egg'
12). Housing vouchers; build affordable housing
13). College tuition credit in exchange for community service
14). Special interests shouldn't dictate what happens in Washington, American people should; Didn't accept funding from federal lobbyists
(He gets really riled up here)
15). America is on the wrong track in the war; billions spent on foreign soil instead of rebuilding America
16). End Iraq war
17). Close Guantanamo
18). Restore Habeas Corpeas
19). Initiate Diplomacy
20). Reach out to poor countries; build schools/health infrastructure
21). End Darfur Genocide
22). Protect Constitution
23). Treat troops with respect and help their families when in need
24). John McCain offers 8 more years of Bush; screw you America
25). Tired of politics of fear, ready for politics of hope
26). Gives example of experience; political organizer and politician
27). And of course "God bless America"
The rest was pretty much all rhetoric about uniting America and creating change to help the American people.
"Change starts from the bottom up, not the top down" (paraphrase)
I'd love to see Hillary's rebuttal.
She simply is nowhere near as great of a speaker...She is done my friend. Donezo. Kaput. Finito.
