See folks are yellin’ at me about what a disaster McSame would be and how Roe vs. Wade and SCOTUS are at stake. And yeah maybe they are right but I just keep thinking.
There could very well be worse things ahead if certain folks can take power. Yeah, see…I can imagine that figure Sinclair Lewis warned us about. You know the one who was coming
to take power,
‘….wrapped in a flag and carrying the Cross.’
Remember that warning, he made that prediction circa 1930, about Fascism coming to America, said nothing about whether the Fascist Leader was to appear from the right or……
….the supposed Left.
Think for yourself and then:

…well, coming up with what he stands for. That is, articulating in so many words on the stump not on his damn website, telling us what he’s actually going to do once he’s in office. Well, some Clintonistas, in the spirit of harmony and fellowship now rampant in ObamaLand now that they’ve figured out that if Clinton supporters refuse to vote for The Big B that might not be so good,…..damn run-on sentences! have offered up a prefab platform that they would have no problem supporting:
Now, on to the policy questions, because, as racist, bitter, old, low-info, etc… as we are, we actually care about substance:
– take privatization of SS off the table
– prosecution of the Bush crime clan
– promotion of women’s and LGBT’s rights
– progressive economic policies
– Universal health care
– repeal of no child left behind, no merit pay plan
– out of Iraq / no bombing of Pakistan
– reinstate habeas corpus
– commitment to appointing progressive judges on SCOTUS, no waffling
– commitment to repeal the partial birth abortion law, no waffling
– no telco immunity
Looks pretty good to me.
