Hillary's minions starting to pound that Syria war drum

I don't have a dog in this fight (I am not Hillary's supporter), but Syrian war did last for quite some time.

What is exactly your point? Is Hillary advocating ground troops intervention in Syria despite Russian UN veto?

The West claimed military victory in Syria to be impossible not on the basis of objective analysis...


Because FUCK YOU and Iraq and Russian UN veto.

Point is people should be aware of the type of War Party rhetoric coming from Hillarys circle.

Hopefully people on the left decide to actually take a stand and make sure someone else wins the primary.

It would be nice if people on the left got a president candidate from the left for a change.

I'm curious. Where did Obama, Clinton and Carter come from?

With the exception of Carter, Wall St and K St. Carter was something of a genuine anomaly which is why even his own party often gave him the run around. If Rand Paul were to beat the odds and get elected, it would be largely through similar sentiments and he would face similar challenges.

Clinton was not a bad guy though, all things considered. He did many things I disagreed with, but by and large his circle of policymakers and rank and file bureaucrats and appointees tried to actually do their jobs properly. Something neither Bush nor Obama administration officials have shown any interest whatsoever of doing.

Well Wall St. and K St. didn't vote them in. What's the solution for low info voters?

I seem to remember our resident lefties singing the praises of both Clinton and Obama over the years. If they aren't from the left, why is the left supporting them, excusing them and defending their actions at every turn?

I really don't care about any other country right now. They all can go fuck off, we need to fix our broke shit first. It seems to keep getting worse with the overwhelming amount of retards that we have in Congress and in the White House. I'm voting for the U.S.A we've got to fix our problems instead of putting a band aide on them. Informing voters would be a great start!

Trying to solve low info voter problem is like trying to solve idiocy - good luck with that.

What we could do is limit influence of money. Low info votes are mostly purchased, that is you spend money on advertising and you get them to turn up over one or another post-truth soundbite or outrage issue de jour. If you greatly limit money in politics you could diminish effectiveness of pure advertising effect and will force candidate personal characteristics to play bigger role with such demographic.

At the present level of money influence on politics you could probably get a cat elected as POTUS.
