commented on Trump Doesn't Give Two Shits About His Supporters (And Neither Should You)
I know I sound crazy, but a lot of people have been manipulated and have been on the receiving end of disinformation and misinformation. Rather thank being a condescending twat, why not try to reach out and find common ground. It could lead to crazy stuff like election victories and cleaning up the corruption in government.
commented on Jill Stein Is a Rightwing Tool
Although the statement made by Stein in regards to the senate vote seems wrong, there is some truth to the statement that we are in this current situation because Democrats serve corporate interests.
This goes back to the 1990s, with Clinton triangulating the party to the center by cynically using "welfare reform" to appeal to the Dixiecrats, and jumping on the corporate cash train. This continued during the GW Bush years, voting for the Patriot Act and the Iraq War, while often being fearful to stand up to the Republican bullies. Don't forget, Obama failed to prosecute both Wall Street and Bush Administration War criminals. In the early part of his term, when he had majorities in both the house and senate, he was tepid in his policies. Behind the scenes, he did everything in his power to keep the "public option" out of his healthcare reform. All of these things he let slide, including the sophisticated surveillance state, is now at the disposal of President Trump.
So while it's easy to bash and red bait people like Stein, Democrats are still failing to do any real soul searching about how and why we are in this horrible predicament.
