Liberals should boo Hillary and the Democratic Machine

Conspiring against a candidate?

Selecting a conservative as VP?

Unless she tacks hard left, no liberal should vote for her. She's a Bush republican at the end of the day.

1. Of course she is. She's bought and owned by Wall Street. .....

Vote for her and the rich will get richer, the poor poorer and the middle class will continue to go extinct.

Of course she will promise something entirely different while she is campaigning but only a fool would believe her.

2. Kaine is a conservative? Really? The American Conservative Union ranks him as the least

conservative member of Congress:

0% = most liberal
100% = most conservative

http://acuratings.conservative.org/acu-federal-legislative-ratings/?year1=2015&chamber=13&state1=0&sortable=7

Ten most liberal Senators:

T Kaine - VA (0.00)
M Hiron - HI (0.91)
A Franken - MN (1.14)
T Baldwin - IL (1.71)
C Murphy - CT (1.78)
S Whitehouse - RI (1.78)
C Coons - DE (2.00)
P Murray - WA (2.46)
C Booker - NJ (2.67)
B Boxer - CA (2.94)

If Kaine is a conservative, what does that make every other Democrat in the Senate?

4. That means absolutely nothing.

If they're all so liberal why is corporate America getting everything they want?

13. Most aren't.

That Cory Booker is on that list is ridiculous. Al Franken is far from a darling of the left at the moment yet he comes in at number two.

16. Well, now I'm just confused. Big Red Machine says Franken is a liberal, you say he's not....

The fact remains than all Democrats are to the left of me on the whole.....Kaine included. Both he and Hillary are gun grabbers, so my only (realistic) alternative is Trump.

I'll have to hold my nose to vote for him, mind you.

17. Why they did the gun thing is completely beyond me.

Guns aren't going anywhere. I can only guess that it was an attempted distraction from the TPP. Hillary has a Gore/Kerry thing going. Play the numbers and hope that will put you over the top. BAD STRATEGY. People don't vote for presidents on issues. They vote for a LEADER (who shares their values). It's Machiavelli 101.

Hillary tries to play herself off as a leader but it always comes off as conniving and condescending because she is conniving and condescending.

I've lost all hope. We're swirling down the drain. An outrageously strong military is all we have. But that won't help our middle class when they're working for 16 dollars an hour (if they can find that).

6. Respectfully - I don't give a hoot what the American Conservatives Union says

 

I know where Kaine is on the issues.

Even the Nation admits Kaine has a "mixed record" on abortion, and he's openly for less regulation of the deregulated big banks that almost crashed our economy at the onset of the Bush Recession.

Hell, Kaine even admits it. This is Kaine's ad from 2005.

11. If you were who you claim you are you'd be calling yourself a progressive.

I notice things like that. You just sound like a conservative.

12. Who are you to question me? I'm a progressive liberal who clearly doesn't like the DNC deceptions

 

Or Hillary picking an admitted conservative as her VP.

What is illogical about either of those positions, for a liberal or a progressive to take?
