The well-oiled Clinton machine
Hillary Clinton will not confront head on, the painfully obvious origins of her campaign war chest. When what is a big issue for many is brought up, we hear crickets or a spin to somehow cast things in a favorable light. Make no mistake, you can't have it both ways.
We have to ask ourselves how much we believe in each candidate, and evaluate them on their merits. It should be abundantly clear by now, that the Sanders campaign is not accepting support from moneyed interests. His opponent on the other hand, is flush with what we may as well call blood money, because policy priorities will be directly influenced by it, and real human lives are at stake here.
Do we endorse dynastic politics, embrace a campaign finance system that an overwhelming nearly 80 percent of Americans want to see changed, and a candidate whose position has shifted on multiple issues to remain relevant?
The decision that needs to be made
This primary season, Americans will need to decide on whom they can rely, to be an extension of most, if not all of their values, first as a person, then as a citizen of the United States. The ability for us to even make these decisions as a right should not be taken lightly, and there seems to be a real disconnect from a past in which many risked their lives to do so. Everyone who can vote owes that right to the people who fought for it. To not give the real issues affecting your life today a lengthy consideration isn't just a disservice to yourself, but also to the rest of the country.
I believe the choice is clear. We cannot put faith in a leader who has already succumbed to Washington pessimism. We cannot put faith in one who accepts millions from the very sources of our deepest problems, while promising to regulate the interests behind them.
Hillary is trying wade into the river of progress, as the figurative safety lines of her donors are tied around her in case she slips and begins to drown, all the while labelling herself a progressive. Sorry Madam Secretary, you can't sit on this fence with full pockets. #Election 2016 #Democratic Party #Government
