“There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”
― George W. Bush
Mrs.Clinton is riding on a golden wave ( sorry for using your name in vain Waverly) of ‘pseudo new populism’—COWABUNGA dudes! I say pseudo because as any of her Wall St. cronies will tell you, she is their “gal”, her interest lies not in YOUR benefit but in the good of Wall St., cloaked in the good old Clinton “pragmatism’. It was that “pragmatism” that struck down the Glass–Steagall Act and delivered us the disastrous NAFTA; sending an estimated 700,000* American jobs to Mexico, the American worker went from being John to Juan–funny how Libs lapped-it up back then, and NOW are complicit in allowing our current POTUS to revisit the same disaster via TPP. Only this time Juan will turn into Wang but the net effect will be the same, American jobs will set sail on a permanent trip overseas and we’re supposed to be ok with it.
Color me unimpressed–the LIBERAL counter argument, that in its simplicity is one of the most destructive forces facing the collective, has a rallying cry, ‘WE need to elect a DEMOCRAT candidate, no matter if he/she is a corporatist shill donning progressive garb because a Republican would be worse’ –perhaps, but I say that today’s panic-stricken liberals would elect Ronald Reagan’s left testicle if it had a democrat sticker on it.
But don’t give up hope, we have an alternative in Bernie Sanders we just need some testicular/ovarian fortitude and back the BERN! no sticker necessary.
