If You Say So

Ignoring the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton campaign is making moves to appeal to anti-trump Republicans. That, they believe, is where the party – or at least their candidacy – has room to grow. But if a Democrat sounds and looks and acts and boats like a Republican, is it really a Democrat?

    • And that, in turn, reminds me of one of my favorite Heinlein quotes.

      “In case of doubt, vote against. By this rule you will rarely go wrong. If this is too blind for your taste, consult some well-meaning fool (there is always one around) and ask his advice. Then vote the other way.”

      Yeah, I know, I’ve posted it before. You can’t go wrong with the classics.

      • I can’t but wonder how an Elections Commission would react if a person accused of voting twice in the upcoming US presidential election would reply in his or her defence that he or she had wanted to vote against both Ms Clinton and Mr Trump…. 😉

        As the late Richard Joseph Daley is said to have said : «Vote early ; vote often !»


  1. Pity poor Hillary- she’s pretending to be a Democrat, catering to the banks and corporations, while sucking up to the Sanders crowd. I haven’t seen triangulating like this since, well, Bill.

  2. On Tuesday, I heard a cartoonist with a thick New York City accent acting like Lord Haw Haw on the Russian propaganda channel. He said that Obama issued an executive order against private e-mail servers, so Secretary Clinton was in violation of the law.

    Of course, every Clintonbot knows that Obama said (or meant with the obvious elided) ‘this applies to EVERYONE, EXCEPT for Secretary Clinton!’

    Some say Secretary Clinton is a Rockefeller Republican. Actually, she’s more like a Goldwater Republican, and the Goldwater she’s like is the one in the ad with the little girl in a field of flowers.

    • I wish that the many disillusioned voters on both sides would jump over to Jill, instead of buying into the garbage that says one has to vote either Republican or Democrat (because 3rd parties don’t have a chance). If enough voters would do that, the corruption evident with the 2-party system of “choices” would end. 🙁

    • I’m voting for Jill, too.

      I don’t believe the duopoly will allow Jill to win anymore than Hill Inc. would allow Sanders to win, but I’m voting for Jill anyway.

      If voters can’t stand up for what they believe in, then how can they expect the elected to stand up for what they believe in?

      Fearful candidates + fearful electorate = more of the same.

      Nothing + nothing = more nothing.

      • I find it strange, if not downright comical, that Democrats are crying that a 3rd-party vote is a vote for Trump, at the same time that Republicans are crying that a 3rd-party vote is a vote for Clinton. The U.S. has to rid itself of this either-or mentality and vote conscience! 🙂

      • “If voters can’t stand up for what they believe in …

        … they’ll bend over for what the 1% believe in”
