I predicted defection to Clinton months earlier, both candidates likeminded on most issues – differing largely in rhetoric and style.
Throughout the campaign Sanders said one thing. In the end, he sold out to wealth, power and privilege, betraying loyal supporters – more evidence of America’s debauched one-party state with two right-wings.
Deplorably Sanders said “I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton, and why she must become our next president.”
Fact: He’s endorsing what demands committed opposition, ending with Clinton in prison serving hard time – along with husband Bill for his involvement.
Sanders: “Hillary Clinton understands that we must fix an economy in America that is rigged and that sends almost all new wealth and income to the top one percent.”
Fact: Hillary is a Wall Street/war-profiteer’s tool – exclusively supporting monied interests, popular ones be damned.
Sanders: “(W)e produced, by far, the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic (sic) party.”
Fact: Democrat New Deal, Fair Deal, Great Society programs are disappearing, targeted for elimination.
Fact: The Democrat party platform is hugely regressive, not progressive – dirty business as usual pretending otherwise.
Nothing in it about opposing corporate coup d’etat trade deals.
Nothing meaningful about reigning in Wall Street or war-profiteering.
Nothing about ending wars of aggression. Nothing about rescinding police state repression, holding killer cops accountable – putting people above privilege and profits.
Not a dime’s worth of difference separates Democrats from Republicans on issues mattering most.
Endorsing Clinton shows where Sanders really stands – contemptuous of world peace, rule of law principles and democratic values – equity and justice mere meaningless words.
In November, vote independent or stay home. Above all reject Clinton, America most recklessly dangerous presidential aspirant in history – WW III perhaps likely on her watch.
