      The biggest of the many moral blind-spots that mar the politics of the Democratic Party is American imperialism.

      Biden Helped Lead the Charge into Iraq

      Look at the Inauthentic Opposition Party’s[1] presumptive presidential nominee.

      Biden recently chided Donald Trump in not-so veiled terms for failing to overthrow the democratically elected socialist Maduro government of Venezuela? How imperialist was that?

      Go back seventeen years. Joe Biden did not just briefly go along with and get “fooled” by George W. Bush’s case for undertaking the monumentally criminal, racist, mass-murderous, and petro-imperialist invasion of Iraq in 2003. Biden helped champion that epic imperial transgression as a veteran Democratic leader in the U.S. Senate. This was consistent with his strong support for Bill Clinton’s lethal economic sanctions (responsible for the death of at least half a million Iraqi children) and missile strikes on Iraq, for Clinton’s criminal bombing of Serbia, and (later) for (of course) his future boss Barack Obama’s many targeted drone assassinations and disastrous attack on Libya.

      Yeah. This is what I said. I won’t be voting for any fucking Biden. I hate these Righties posing as Democrats.

      I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

      @enthusiast They control the Party. If there’s anyone whose a DINO, it’s you. That’s how far to the right the Party has shifted.

      It’s shifted so much that now I’m insulted if someone calls me a Democrat.
