"How the West was Won" by Hilary Clinton

Falling into the manifest destiny thinking, to which Hilary Clinton is a product of her Republican white upper middle class up-bringing, she declared upon wining the popular vote, but loosing the all-important delegate vote by one,
"I guess this is how the West was won"

In reality, the West was won by driving natives off of the land, and setting up the exploitative system that places economic freedoms above political freedoms. Hilary Clinton is not the person who will change this formula.

Sorry, I've been away for a while, and can't catch up on everything. So, I gotta ask:

Are any of the clowns left in the POTUS race the one to change things? I'm thinking not.

er... I don't think that's how it's supposed to work. The presidents do the bidding of the corporations (i.e., plantation owners), and we (the slaves) have to free ourselves.

It ain't gonna happen over night, but it's eventually going to happen.

Good point. It is folly for all these folks to think they can change us, er, I mean, the country. :-)
