Dutch Wrote: Jared again you disappoint me; Hillary and Bernie agreeing 85%, you must be kidding again.
No, I'm not.
Dutch Wrote: 1) Hillary is for revamping "elections" without super PAC's and "bribery money"? Answer: NO
Hillary isn't promising things she knows she can't deliver on. Bernie is.
Dutch Wrote: 2) Hillary is for "healthcare" for all, as well control of doctors fees and pharma fees? Answer: NO
Do you not remember her being the architect of the 1994 health care bill?
Dutch Wrote: 3) Hillary is for reducing our wars as well Pentagon waste? Answer: NO
Can you point to any statement where she said "I want more war!"?
Dutch Wrote: 4) Hillary is for "term limits"? Answer: No
You do understand that Presidents are only allowed to serve two terms, right? And do you also understand that Bernie Sanders has been in Congress since 1991? Clinton only served in Congress from 2001 to 2009.
Dutch Wrote: 5) Hillary is for upgrading minimum wages to $15 p/hr? Answer: No , only to $12 p/hr.
And both are dead on arrival in Congress. Congress passes laws; not the President.
Dutch Wrote: 6) Hillary is for changing Wall Street practices and taxing the rich progressively? Answer : NO
Once again--dead on arrival in Congress.
Dutch Wrote: Of course there are many more things Bernie wants to copy from Europe, but he knows he's fighting a lost cause because people like you and others feel very comfortable with a corrupt government.
And many European countries are going broke because of it. They have an ever aging population and young people aren't having kids anymore. The promises they made to their citizens will never be able to be met in the long run due to that fact.
That, and most countries in Europe have a population smaller than a typical state in America. It's much easier to get things done when your country only has 10 million people. It's a little harder when you have 315 million.
The system of governance in Europe is so different than the system of governance here in America. I don't know why that's so hard for you to accept. A prime minister can't just say what they want and have their coalition jam it through here in America.
When have I ever said I am very comfortable with a corrupt government? For starters--corruption is vastly different from cronyism. I am uncomfortable with the role money plays in politics, but until we overturn Citizens United then that's just the way things are. Do you honestly think that Trump would ever nominate a Supreme Court Justice that would overturn that decision?
