    Today's republican party is now left of JFK. The Democrat Party is far left of JFK. And he we are with you all wanting even further Left instead of going back to what make this country great with the principals of our founding. Your misled.

    Get used to saying it ... Madam President.
    The voters will decide ... not the fanatical manics that want to impose their style of dictatorship on all.
    The far right did this all by themselves.

    That would be Madam "Evil" President.. Can you tell me anything positive over the years that Hillary has done?? I still believe she will not run..

    And you can say the far left destroyed the Democratic party also.. I was for over forty years a registered democrat but with todays party I will not return to them..

    The Koch brothers would never hang a sign on Bernie. The Koch brothers are all about the Koch brothers and their cronies. The same cronyism you condemned in an earlier post. Hypocrites to the core. They hide in the shadows of the Tea Party. They are a huge albatross around your neck Strappy.

    The whole political system is "evil".
    Both sides are corrupted by the power and money influence. ( can you say corporations ? )
    I have been my whole life a registered "independent" and will vote for the best person, not a party.

    BTW ... I have said all along I will not vote for a Clinton, Bush or Trump.
    I call it like I see it. Hillary will not go to prison anymore then Cheney or Rove ... people in power have different rules.

    Misled Strappy,you have no idea my friend.Global Capitalism Strappy,that is the name of the beast that is 'MISLEADING US' deeper into a Catastrophic Hell.Global Capitalists and their upper class cohorts are the drivers of 'PERPETUAL EMPIRE WAR' for Resources that include Oil and Slave Labor.As scarcities intensify,water among them,so will the wars and the lethal 'PLUNDERING' and 'OPPRESSION' of the World's vast underclass that has neither Capital nor any control over it or the Capitalist Republican/Democrat party that 'SERVES' it,intensifying ''FASCISM'' in the process.

    Here in USA Empire Inc.,80% of all Americans have no Capital nor any control over it,nor over those who own it.In the meantime,We are Trillions in debt,Mortgages,Student Loans,Credit Card and Car Loans.We are many Trillions deeper in debt owing to the 'INTEREST' we are forced to pay Wealthy Capitalist,and for all we pay in Federal income and withholding,State Income,State Sales,local and other Taxes and Fees to ''MAKE UP'' for what the Wealthy and the Global Corporations don't pay.We pay for their Banking,MIC,Pharma,Health Insurance,Chem-Ag,Oil,Retail and other Cartels with our Slave Labor,Taxes and Debt and Interest Payments,and with many of ''OUR LIVES''.In War,In Prisons,for Lack of Healthcare,to Drugs and Guns.

    Our Children and Grandchildren will ''SUFFER'' Worse for ''OUR'' Failure to Revolt against the Capitalist Republican/Democrat Party and WE must now commence a sharp left turn in the Direction of Socialism with 'CONTROLS' against One Party Domination and Evolution to a Stalinist Dictatorship.Strappy,there is No other 'ALTERNATIVE' to the ''FASCIST'' and Totalitarian Capitalism Gone Global that now Imprisons 'US' and threatens to Kill Us All.

    This Policy push by Republicans,Obama and by Hillary is clearly a Neo-Con set of Policies,being pushed since the days of Reagan,by almost every President we've had since.Since the ''BLUE DOG DEMOCRATS'' have gone even further ''RIGHT'',let's call them for what they really are,'TRAITORS' to common 'DECENCY',not Progressives of any kind.

    I took a drive today to a Shrine an hour away. Went to Mass and Confession...walked through their door of Mercy opened due to Pope Francis Year of Mercy....
    Beautiful place. Perfect weather. No heavy confessions excepting my total lack of organization and missing Mass 3-4 x in the last few months and continuing to go and take Communion without confessing it...........but anyways...I did what I should to walk right the best I can in a system which has brought good results for the world no matter anyone cares to admit it or not.....
    At Mass the priest spoke and said at Mass, as Catholics we should be denouncing communism, socialism and consumerism ..and some other stuff.
    So I will do what I consider right again.
    Not blindly though. Not just because he said.

    Socialism is a forced thing.
    It's not a soft fluffy, flowers, peace, love, and happiness thing. Choice is not a part of it.
    And very powerful people are at the top taking all everybody's labors just the same. Yet the multitudes of people like us will not gain. Your enemies still will. We will work for nothing and labor more.
    The crowd who doesn't think they should work yet deserve money will one day be forced to work for equalities sake.....shooting out fatherless children will not get women more benefits...they could end up having their children taken by state and maybe even forcibly have tubes tied...for equalities sake..
    Minorities will not get special treatment....They WILL WORK like the rest....on and on.
    and who gets elected when all have the same money? ? My hunch is that government plays a big role in future elections....the grass is not always greener.
    This system sucks today. But that system sucks more.

    I will repeat my "mantra ".....1955 or the years when unions were strong.....unions plus capitalism((not all out communism or socialism) is best imo.
    Conspiracy theories speaking "New World Order", Globalism, One World Religion"......oftentimes point out that world elites would overlord the socialism/communism you are being led to.

    Just my opinion.

    Why Are China's Rich 'Billionaires', but Russia's 'Oligarchs'?

    Is there a tiny wage gap between the average Chinese or Russian and these people?

    In our system I think there's a greater chance to reduce it than in the one they are locked into.
