Again, you do not have a system of ethics that looks at people like Hillary Clinton and George Bush…

So now you have totally sunk into ad hominem attacks. I’m either not bright or a liar and I have no ethics. And then you make an A/B statement and tell me what position I’m taking based on your own alternative reality.

You can’t you refute the examples of Nixon, Reagan, and W doing far more damage to the country as a result of their own corruption.

One last time to be clear. One president used burglary, wiretapping and political sabotage and the power of FBI to attack the anti-war movement, the press, and the Democrats in order to maintain power. One president made a deal with a foreign country to affect a presidential election. One president lied to start a war, shielded his buddies from investigation of 9/11, even though 15 out of 19 terrorists were Saudis, awarded no-bid contracts that not only ripped off the government but created substandard living conditions for our troops.

Do you not understand that these are crimes?

UPDATE: So you made me do the work to research your claim, and I finally found an article about the arm deals that related with contributions to the Clinton foundation.

Thanks for being so lazy. All you had to do was provide a link. Was it that hard?

Now I can see why you have been so frustrated about the false equivalency argument. There are similarities in how Bush and Clinton have sold their souls for Saudi money.

But there are still differences that can be measured. Dick Cheney benefitted from destroying Iraq in Gulf War I, then rebuilding the country, and then mounting an argument based on lies to destroy the country a second time.

The cost of the Iraq War was over 4500 US casualties, 30,000 more maimed for life, somewhere between 500,000 to 1,000,000 dead Iraqis, and trillions of dollars.

And you are trying to claim Clinton is responsible for “the most colossal political corruption” in your lifetime.

Well, those are the numbers from the Iraq War.

Please try to prove that the damage done by those arms deals have resulted in more total deaths or have had similar effects on the U.S.
