Our country was born in revulsion to hereditary family rule. Yet we’re supposed to accept that 2016 will be the 8th presidential election out of 10 since 1980 with a Bush and/or a Clinton on a major party presidential ticket.
Both the Bushes and the Clintons — sometimes with different approaches and rhetoric — have presided over national decline, especially the corporatization and militarization of our society. In the decades of domination by these two families and their corporate friends, our country has experienced:
- middle-class decline
- ever-increasing corporate control of politics and economics
- “free trade” pacts like the TPP that hurt workers and the environment
- near-constant war and erosion of civil liberties
- government bailouts for Wall Street but not homeowners
- structural poverty and a racially-biased “drug war”
- ever-rising costs of a college education
If you believe our country needs a total change of direction — not just rejecting the Bushes and the Clintons, but any candidates who propose to continue their corporatist policies — please click on the following. . .
The reality is that corporate elites can’t lose with another Bush or Clinton. In a Politico article revealing Hillary Clinton’s support among Republican financiers, a “top Republican-leaning Wall Street lawyer” said the following: “If it turns out to be Jeb versus Hillary we would love that and either outcome would be fine.”
Good news is that Hillary Clinton faces growing progressive opposition in the Democratic race.
