The kinder, gentler War Party... Only three of the eighteen or so candidates will freeze or reduce the military buudget. Kucinich and Gravel are the only two Democrats. The rest are commited to the Military Industrial Complex, Hillary being the most outspoken on this.

Hillary will be much like Bill. Like Bill in Iraq, killing over 500,000 children (U.N. figures) with sanctions. Hillary's policies will continue the Black Box Budget to reward companies like Honeywell for spying on us.

In Hillary we are getting the DLC all over again. Will she get rid of the unfair trade we find ourselves bound to? No. She is already promised to export failed and despised neoliberal economics around the world for her investment banker backers on Wall Street. She will establish a whole new Healthcare Complex that ensconces Healthcare Companies in the gravy without any competition, instead of a single-payer system. Hillary is the DLC in a brand new package.
