Archive for 'Hillary Clinton'

Who ‘won’ the debate is the wrong question

Electing Hillary Clinton won’t challenge let alone change the system of oppression or the positions of power that give some powerful men what they think is (and because of their positions of power often is) sexual power over women. Indeed, like Obama before her, as President Hillary Clinton will reinforce the oppressions of capitalism, the oppressions of gender and race on which capitalism has been and is built and reinforced.

The US Presidential election: can you vote for what you want?

Your vote on November 8 for Jill Stein, a genuine left alternative, is one step toward building for change. But the struggle needs to go on all the other days of the year, too.

Feminists for the warmongering Wall Street candidate Hillary Clinton

I oppose Hillary Clinton because she is the candidate of Wall Street. Her election will not improve the lives of most women in the US. It will make them worse. Clinton is the candidate of the elite, and their agenda is to drive down the living standards of working women and men to restore profit rates.

I also oppose Hillary Clinton because she is a warmongering imperialist who, like Nobel Peace Prize winner Barack Obama, will slaughter tens of thousands of innocent women, girls, boys and men in her wars and drone attacks. Which side will Price be on when that happens – the side of the mass murderer Hillary Clinton or the side of those women and girls Clinton murders?

Hillary’s ‘I’m not Trump’ campaign

THE MESSAGE to the Democratic Party’s more liberal voting base is already clear: Sure, you may have some criticisms of Hillary Clinton, and you may have liked what Bernie Sanders had to say – but it’s time to get real and start helping ensure the victory of the “lesser evil” in order to stop the “greater evil.” But everything about Clinton’s political career is further evidence that voting for the “lesser evil” leads to evils of both kinds.

Sanders’ New Hampshire victory shows establishment politics in the US is cracking up

Charlie Kimber in Socialist Worker UK looks at the rise of self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders and argues that ‘the old politics is under extreme strain, and millions of people are looking for an alternative.’ However Sanders is not that alternative because ‘he is prepared to stay within the limits of the thoroughly capitalist Democratic Party.’

Clinton’s corporate feminism is no way forward

The Clinton campaign has a new line of attack against voters who won’t get in line behind their candidate: They’re caving to sexism. Elizabeth Schulte in Socialist Worker US begs to differ.

Hillary Clinton is the candidate of Corporate America and business as usual in Washington

Hillary Clinton is mouthing populist rhetoric, but why should anyone believe her? asks Socialist Worker US. She is the candidate of Corporate America and business as usual in Washington.

Antony Loewenstein on feminism lite and some responses

Antony Loewenstein wrote an article in the Guardian recently about feminism lite. It has provoked a huge reaction. What do you think?

US foreign policy shift: talk first, then shoot

Barack Obama will continue the killing and global poverty that is an integral part of US imperialism. Nothing has really changed.
