Re: Trans-Pacific Partnership: fascism rears it's ugly head
RAZD cheered your post? Really?
Let's see, for the past couple of decades (centuries?), the voters have been using this "lesser-evil" strategy. The democrat voters would hold their noses while "carefully" voting for Obama over the more evil John McCain. And the republican voters would hold their noses while "carefully" voting for Bush Jr. over the more evil John Kerry.
With these recent examples in mind, it is your opinion that the following presidential candidates are the positive shift we voters have been "carefully" cultivating?:
It is part of the shift - as the republicans slide further to the reactionary right, the dems slide to the right with candidates (Hillary) that can appeal to disaffected republicans (yes there are some, increasingly vocal about it too) ... and that leaves room to the left for new progressive candidates. This is the reason that Bernie Sanders is doing so well (are you channeling the main-stream-media in ignoring him?).

we are limited in our ability to understand
by our ability to understand
... to learn ... to think ... to live ... to laugh ...
to share.
