    The Definitive, Encyclopedic Case For Why Hillary Clinton is the Wrong Choice

    Quite the replete article. I'm surprised to see it on daily kos.
    The Definitive, Encyclopedic Case For Why Hillary Clinton is the Wrong Choice

    It covers: (with select snippets)
    • DOMA and gay marriage
    • NAFTA [and TPP] (“She has, in fact, a long record of verbally criticizing free-trade agreements, but then supporting them when in office.”)
    • Welfare reform (Hillary: “Too many of those on welfare had known nothing but dependency all their lives")
    • Minimum wage
    • 2001 Bankruptcy bill (“She did a 180 once she became senator,” he said. “It was galling.”)
    • Iraq War
    • Reining in Wall Street ("The Glass-Steagall Act that was repealed by Bill Clinton in 1998 is considered to be one of the underlying causes of the financial crisis of 2008.")
    • Cluster bombs ("Hillary Clinton voted in 2006 (as this story explains) to let our military continue to use cluster bombs in areas with concentrated civilian populations")
    • Other arms sales
    • Human rights abroad
    • Children from Central America
    • The for-profit prison industry
    • Death penalty
    • Domestic spying
    • No Child Left Behind ("as a U.S. senator, she served on the Senate Health, Education and Labor Committee, as a key member shaping the No Child Left Behind Act")
    • American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (“The most absurd corporate tax giveaway of 2005.”)
    • Climate change ("She supported the KXL pipeline until she suddenly came out against it last September; She supported offshore drilling until she suddenly didn’t in December; She supported promoted fracking around the world as environmentally safe and still supports fracking in the U.S; She still supports fossil fuel extraction on public lands")
    • Coal plants in South Africa
    • Healthcare
    • Kissinger
    • Food
    • Guns
    • Campaign money ("Hillary Rodham Clinton will begin personally courting donors for a “super PAC” supporting her candidacy, the first time a Democratic presidential candidate has fully embraced these independent groups that can accept unlimited checks from big donors")
    • Ethics ("an unusual intervention by the top U.S. diplomat." ... "Total donations by UBS to the Clinton Foundation grew from less than $60,000 through 2008 to a cumulative total of about $600,000 by the end of 2014")
    • More on trust
    • Ideology

    So what should the democratic party do? repudiate the popular vote and send Hillary home?

    I don't understand what Bernie's supporters want. For people who want to revitalize American democracy, they sure are anti-democratic.

    Really?

    Given the sheer amount of election rigging in Hillary's favor, Clinton now has the most anti-democratic campaign the democrats have ever run.

    Sandalistas still don't know where it all went wrong.

    I'd be the first one to join the crusade against Hillary if I believed that the rigging was substantial enough to account for her lead in the pledged delegates and the popular vote. Sadly, that's not the case.
