Sanders: I wouldn’t end drone program

In an interview on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Sanders indicated that he would limit the use of drones so that they do not end up killing innocent people abroad, but declined to say that he would end the targeted killing campaign completely.

“I think we have to use drones very, very selectively and effectively. That has not always been the case,” Sanders said.

Patrick Murphy enabled the Benghazi witch hunt

Donald Trump: The 14th Amendment Is Unconstitutional
Essentially Trump is saying I am a big rich man and the law means whatever I say it means. It is time to stop laughing and consider the possibility that this fascist could actually win. He has gone on record as saying that he will set mobs on anyone who heckles his campaign. He is a would be Mussolini. So many thought that Mussolini was a joke until the laughter stopped.

Obama's Iran agreement

It is a good agreement and Congress needs to support the President. There are so many special interests. AIPAC is just one of the opponents. The Saudi's don't want it because they have a religious cold war with Iran that they want us to fight. Also, the ending of sanctions against Iran will bring their oil on to the market, which will press oil prices down. The Saudi's don't want that, and neither does the shale oil and fracking market. The Koch brothers don't want it. Read more about Obama's Iran agreement

Donald Trump, Prince of Kleptocracy, apostle of greed

Donald Trump, Prince of Kleptocracy, Apostle of greed, Duke of Bombast and Braggadocio, Earl of Envy, Baron of Bigotry, Count of Cronyism, is the apotheosis of Republican party political culture. Going back at least to the Goldwater campaign, the Republican party has stood for two things, worship of wealth and hatred of minorities. Trump is the logical conclusion of that.
