Clinton et al is no more corrupt that pretty much ALL of the Federal Government these days. She is an Establishment Democrat, which means that, just like the Establishment Republicans, she serves the interests of the rich and powerful and fark all to Joe Citizen.
A Clinton administration would continue the giant sell-out of working class Americans to the wealthy, but at least the sell-out would be orderly and without chaos.
A Trump administration would completely blow up our government into a giant series of constitutional crisis if not full-on war with pretty much all the international community of nations. Some people think that is a good thing and want to see The Donald do precisely that. Me? I think this country needs a properly functioning representative government RIGHT NOW like we have never needed it before. China is in the ascension, Russa is hell-bent on re-establishing it's old USSR hegemony, the Islamic world (about 1/4 total global population) is coming apart at the seams, and we have numerous major environmental and societal crises to successfully navigate. Distracting our government by the inevitable histrionics which would attend a Trump administration would kill us as a first world nation, no doubt.
For the record, I HATE Hillary and loathe the very idea of her winning the Presidency. We will surely become a giant serfdom if she is elected and the growing Dept. of Homeland Security will ensure that an American Bastille Day could never happen. But we cannot let the foxes continue to run our henhouse and man, Trump is a golden example of the type of super-rich, super-greedy 'all-for-me' bastard that is killing our once great society.
Not only do we need to kick the puppets out of government, but we need to transform government so that government employees are actually accountable for their misdeeds. If Government ran more like private enterprise, and government employees could get fired or even jailed for incompetent or illegal behaviors, you would see government clean up it's act PDQ.
Jeepwm, you made a thread about Oregon. I live here and let me tell you about Oregon: In Lane CO where I live, the county commissioners are all set to close all the rural waste transfer sites (local dumps) because they will save about a half million $/year if they do. Meanwhile, they all just voted themselves 15% raises (to about $140,000/yr ea) and voted themselves a beautiful new $3 million city hall building, all in the face of widespread public condemnation. They are running amok with the power of office and using it to serve themselves, not We The People. And our governor, Kate Brown, can get no farther than "why you poor little babies, here, let me help you" in her understanding of governance and public policy. She is poster girl for what is wrong with the Liberals, just like Donald Trump is poster boy for what is wrong with Conservatives.
The whole situation is disgusting. Bernie and Elizabeth at least would direct their efforts at stopping some of the most egregious abuses by the rich special interests and try to return our nation back to the benefit of those of us who actually work and produce the wealth rather than just skim it all off the top.
