Stop being ignorant.

People type LOL casually but you literally made me laugh out loud. Hillary is the rich get richer candidate. The financiers, bankers, tech mogul and other big business moguls are supporting her.

Please don't tell me you fell for the "Im going to help the middle class" Sith mind trick.

That would probably have been Bernie's goal, Hillary owes to much to the the big corporations to do that. She's more like pre Hugo Venezuela where the companies controlled everything

Right, I never said Chavez, I said Venezuela. If we're lucky, we might be like Brazil.

Not saying they should vote for Trump, just pointing out the delusion people have about what candidates are REALLY going to do and not do. (Same goes for Trump supporters that think Hillary is really going to ban guns and Trump is really going to stop illegal immigration etc.)

Hillary is 4-8 more years of continuation of the same general policies Bush and Obama had. Off-shoring, foreign entanglements, corporate perks, illegal workers and working class wage stagnation.

Ironically, it's going to be easier for HIillary to get a lot of stuff passed than Trump because when some big corporate benefiting bill comes out the Repubs will support it and Hillary will support it and half the dems can't break ranks with her and have any hope of staying in office.

That's how NAFTA got passed and a bunch of the banking deregulation in the late 90's.
Absolutely, I can see why someone would vote for Hillary as a less crazy candidate then Trump, but people are in complete denial if you think she is even close to being a clean candidate. Nixon looks great by comparison. We have a Crazy vs. Corrupt situation.

Not ignorant. Just being realistic. Explain to me how Arabia going to be another Hugo Chavez when every single aspect of our government is controlled by private company interests? Please explain to me, cause I'm ignorant and all

Civics 101. The U.S. Federal Government is comprised of the Executive, Legislative (House & Senate), and Judicial (culminating in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Then there is the State Legislators and Governors, who can redivide Congressional District lines with Court oversight.

Local governments also have some say in this; witness sanctuary cities, which are numerous. - where with the non-enforcement of laws by the federal government are allowed to legislate for illegal immigration. Another example is the growing number of local governments who are turning down certain HUD grants that mandate certain types if housing in order to receive the grant.

Why liberals focus on only on Potus is a puzzle. The glamour job I guess.

Though, I get the increasing use of executive actions by Poti has transformed the administrative position envisioned by the founders, into to more of a force. A rule by fiat.
