I'm thinking about the election, and I'm thinking about what's right and what's wrong. I'm not really going to enumerate the issues here because you're hearing it, seeing it, and reading it everywhere you turn these days. But I do want to muse a bit.
With Hillary, who has been successfully demonized by well-meaning (and, yes, often self-rightous) Bernie supporters, it would seem that the throngs of BernieorBust and NeverHillary folks are settled in against her. If you've spent time in that camp, as have I, you've seen enough to convince you that she has profited enormously from her position(s) in life and that anything she says about income inequality or oppression is at best second-hand and at worst, political pandering. She supported Goldwater, for God's sake. She's jingoist and hawkish and has been knee-jerk Military Industrial Complex candy. She's married to a man I once respected, but this primary campaign has lost that to him. Was his unraveling of Dodd-Frank Consumer Protection legislation a simple mistake? No, it was a complex one, and his teflon-like avoidance of consequences for this and for his personal behavioral choices is uncanny. He has lied straight faced to us, apologized for it, and then he slid into his incredibly lucrative foundation work like none of it ever happened.

"They've made hundreds of millions of dollars selling access, selling favors, selling government contracts, and I mean hundreds of millions of dollars."
