Neo-liberal and neo-conservative are two terms used to describe the same political ideology.

It's been almost 15 years

since the fascist coup of this nation's government in 2000. This cycle we have an opportunity to elect someone who has the needs of the average citizen in mind. All the powers of the oligarchs and fascists are working tirelessly to stop this. The media bias and DWS games are just the tip of the iceberg. They have many more nefarious tools in their chest to use.

Do not relent.

Nothing over the top

If you support the current status quo, you support fascism.

Sanders is against the status quo and therefore against fascism. He has my vote.

She knows

Divert, deflect, distract. That is third way dems (ie Replublican) standard mode of operation. These issues with Democratic right wingers have just as much chance of resolution as congress comming together for a progressive agenda.

Offshoring

Customer: "I would like to buy your product"
Owner: "That will be 10 dollars."
Customer: "Sounds Good."

Owner: "Will you build me this product?"
Employee: "Sure, I just need to be paid enough to feed and house my family, and a little to save for the future."
Owner: "Sounds good."

Employee delivers product to owner, owner delivers to customer and collects 10 dollars.

Owner: "Here is your dollar."
