“The Sanders campaign has been a breath of fresh air on the American political scene. ”

You got that right!

Being an American President is a pretty shitty job. You are expected to do shitty things. Exceptionally shitty things! Even Bernie would be expected to do those shitty things.

How can the outrageous military trajectory of the USA ever be tempered?

I was pondering something related to these unspoken expectations the other day:
Will we ever have a President who sometime before their death, fesses up, in the style of Smedly Butler?

Wouldn’t that be something?

In this article’s link to the extensive version, Joanne Landy, makes this poignant point:

“The foreign policies of both Donald Trump and likely Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, despite their differences, promise a future of endless militarism, drone attacks, support for dictators, and savage neoliberal economic policies throughout the world. Far from defeating political fundamentalism and terrorism in the Muslim world, their policies — America’s own brand of terrorism — are guaranteed to strengthen these reactionary forces.”

Am in total agreement with her summation and think it’s very important to also stress that Hillary used her position as Secretary of State to enrich the coffers of the Clinton Foundation by encouraging business deals between foreign nations and American corporations that then made large donations to the Clinton Foundation – you can just imagine what her presidency would focus on. One doesn’t have to look far to find information on how she used/abused her power as Secretary of State. Here are a few articles, plenty more available if you just Google Clinton cash:
