COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS ABOUT THE AMERICAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY DEBATES

 

“Biden clashes with Warren, Sanders on health care in 3rd Democratic debate

“Candidates pare back some of the bickering that marked 2 earlier debates”

 

Pretty sad field.

The Party killed off the best candidate it had in years, Tulsi Gabbard.

None of these people really challenge the American war machine. Not one. Bernie comes closest, but he has mainly supported it and doesn’t seriously challenge it.

Elizabeth Warren has not only always voted for the hideous budgets, she openly says things like we’ve got to fight our way out of the situations in which we’ve become mired, whatever that stupidity means.

They are all establishment figures of little real promise. Not one of them is stirring or genuinely interesting.

Talk about this or that social program, which is what many of these candidates do, is a waste of breath when you’re spending a trillion dollars a year on the military, security, and spying.

Well, yes, and just look at the urban and rural hellholes that pockmark the United States.

Genuine Third-World stuff, without even decent drinking water or schools.

That is the reality of America.

Plutocracy and empire and squalor and constant turmoil to serve and expand empire.

The people? Who are you kidding? They simply do not count, except in insincere political speeches.

Response to a comment saying, “Biden and Obama bombed 6 countries while in office”

Yes, and very importantly, they started the industrial-scale extrajudicial killing program which uses drones and Hellfire missiles to incinerate people legally guilty of nothing. Thousands of them.

And Joe Biden advocated hard to Obama for starting it.

Wonderful people. Doing the same work as Argentina’s old military junta did when it “disappeared” thousands of people it didn’t like.

Only Obama and Biden both smile all the time.

And a lot of people believe their smiles are benign.
