She who cannot be named is in almost every way to the right of Ronald Reagan… Excellent piece though. One only has to glance at the trends of the last 20 years to see the real danger in a Clinton Nomination:
Median Wages stagnant now consistently falling, while gun sales are rising.
Financial Markets in a continuous, and repetitive “bubble” state, and consumer debt “maxing out”…
Lack of Campaign Finance Reform, and now Citizens United have funded the Mainstream Media “Disinformation Machines” that keep the status quo in power. The result is apparent in the attacks on Women’s Rights, Civil Rights, Worker’s Rights and so on.
The American People are in a hostage crisis, and these words of FDR, ring far too true today: “We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace — business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering.
They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.”
― Franklin D. Roosevelt
