I tend to vote for candidates that aren't plutocrats, which immediately disqualifies about 99.9% of the Republican Party.


and 99.999% of the Democrats.

How can Democrats be engaging in class warfare against the rich and be plutocrats?

Who said the Ds are at war with the Rich??

The R's, and a bunch of people on this MB.

They are only at war with the other side's (Rs) rich. They don't have any problem with billionaires at Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Walgreens, George Soros, Warren Buffett, etc. In fact, many 1% ers from those companies now hold cabinet positions. They just are against Oil money, coal money, or anyone "self made" that doesn't agree with them.

I am under no illusion that the D's do not cater to special interests as much as the R's do, but despite the number of billionaires that support Democrats, a list that could likely be written on a **CENSORED**tail napkin, the R's remain the preferred party of billionaires and multinationals. That's not a coincidence.

One has to look no further than Citizens United, a case decided by the majority conservative judiciary of the Supreme Court which says that corporations are people and that money is speech. If there was ever a more plutocratic decision made in the history of our nation, I'm unaware of it.

 " In the political jargon and propaganda of Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany and the Communist International, western democratic states were referred to as plutocracies, with the implication being that a small number of extremely wealthy individuals were controlling the countries and holding them in ransom. [27][18] Plutocracy replaced democracy and capitalism as the principal fascist term for the United States."

The relevance of you adopting nazi propaganda? Depends, I guess. Are you a fan or just a supporter?

Not according to Forbes:

Quote
There are plenty of liberal billionaires: Members of The Forbes 400 fund Democratic candidates at nearly the same rate as they do Republican candidates.

Do they own the rights to the word plutocrat? Sorry. Wasn't aware of that. Also, I didn't refer to our country as a Plutocracy, I referred to Republicans, and many conservatives I will add, as plutocrats.

Finally, the Nazi's were also the last to refer to their country as the "homeland", a term G.W. Bush adopted in naming the Department of Homeland Security.

“An evil exists that threatens every man, woman and child of this great nation. We must take steps to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland.”
-Adolf Hitler, when announcing to Gestapo to the people.

Bush is also quoted:

“An evil exists that threatens every man, woman and child of this great nation. We must take steps to ensure our domestic security and protect our homeland.”
-George W. Bush

I suppose by you believe Bush to be a Nazi as well, huh?

Heck isn't the Democratic party's slogan "We are smarter than you so we know what is best for you" ??

Nah, that's the Libertarian party's slogan.

What Libertarian is trying to make legislation because they know best?

Sounds like you're confused as to what a Libertarian is.

Sounds like your beliefs line up almost perfectly with Gary Johnson . I strongly urge you to reconsider the "wasted vote" philosophy. That is exactly what the two parties want you to believe , and exactly why we have this endless cycle of dildos in office. If everyone just stopped and realized it's not a waste to vote outside the two party structure , in fact it's the the only way NOT to waste your vote , this country would finally begin to have REAL choices. 

Any vote R or O is a vote for status quo.
Had I not seen what happened to Ross Perot I would be inclined to believe you.  Voting for a third party will make no difference.  It didn't make a difference then and it won't this year. It is a wasted vote with the status how it is.  No amount of third party votes is going to change when the corruption is as deep as it is.

Only because too many people continue to have this same defeatist attitude .

Your solution is simply to give up and go along with the corruption  ? Because you want to feel like you mattered ? That strikes me as ridiculous.


What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

"I believe that it was God's will to send a youth from here into the Reich, to let him grow up, to raise him to be the leader of the nation so as to enable him to lead back his homeland into the Reich."
-Adolf Hitler, April 1938, closing speech of election campaign in Vienna on eve of polling

"If the boycott were carried to lengths actually endangering our economic situation, it would not mean that we would let the Jews go free. No! The hatred, rage and despair ot the German people would first ot all vent itself on those who can be grabbed in the homeland."
-Joseph Goebbels, May 11th, 1934

"The homeland must stay pure and intact in its entirety."
Joseph Goebbels, February 18, 1943

By your logic, George W. Bush is a Nazi, because the word "homeland" was used in Nazi propaganda. You do wish to remain consistent in your criticisms, don't you?

Trust me, I am not at all confused as to what a Libertarian is. I suspect I know more about Libertarianism than a good number of self-proclaimed Libertarians do.

Libertarians want to eliminate the Fed, because they are smarter than most of the world's economists and know what's best. Libertarians want to eliminate Social Security and entitlements, because they are smarter than the vast majority of Americans that favor them and know what's best. Libertarians want to eliminate all regulations on pretty much everything, from food and medications to the environment, to health care and more because they know what's best for us because they are smarter than us.
