Why I can no longer support Tulsi Gabbard

As many of my readers know, I’ve been a staunch defender of Tulsi Gabbard in the past. I defended her from endless attacks from neocons attacking her for visiting Syria to try to bring peace to there. No politician is perfect of course, not even Tulsi or Bernie prior to this vote.

However I am staunchly principled in my ideological beliefs. I will not carry water, There are a few issues that I view as unforgivable and pushing war with Iran, Russia, and North Korea. And Tulsi did the unforgivable. She voted for H.R. 3364: Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act.

She was not the only person to vote for it, every Democrat and every Republican, minus three, voted for the bill. 419-3 Funny how we always hear that bipartisanship in Congress is dead, but bills that matter like this pass with by veto proof votes. A similar bill to this (excluding North Korea sanctions) passed the US Senate, with only Bernie Sanders and Rand Paul voting against it.

The fact the DemoRAT Party voted in full support, without a single Democrat voting against it, shows their resistance to Trump is nothing more than a show.

1. Neoliberalcons and conservatives have far more in common

than not. That's what makes so many political message boards amusing.

And buypartisanship is closer to the mark than bipartisanship, though the latter is the dictionary version.

They keep us fighting over things like choice, potty issues and the past while they continue redirecting both our personal resources and the commons to the top .1% for their personal benefit. (Fastest during the Obama administration, when the temporary Bush tax cuts became the permanent Obama tax cuts, the Feds kept interest rates unbelievably low to help banks and screw depositors, etc. And that's not even counting TARP, though one of the most politically clever things Bush/Rove did was defer to the President Elect before asking for distribution of Tarp 2).

Anyone who does not believe they are all corrupt is just too adorable. I'm sure Santa and the Easter Bunny wuve dem a wot.
