A different kind of candidate

Four of five presidential candidates cloak themselves in morality and patriotism. In fact, they are neither moral nor patriotic. They are power hungry, warmongering, manipulating, masterminds of maleficence. They support endless war, mass incarceration, overthrowing foreign democratically elected leaders. They’re Wall Street Muppets.

Donald Trump, a misanthropic maniac, finances his own reprehensible campaign through his ill-gotten billions and contributions from millionaire friends.

Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz and John Kasich line their coffers with multimillions from PACs, super PACs, big banks, the fossil fuel industry, corporate thieves, hedge funds, vulture capitalists, slick deal brokers. When elected they’re obliged to “pay back” their masters, making themselves automatons of evil, ignoring the needs of those whom they pretend to represent.

Bernie Sanders has no PACs nor corporate monies. He supports universal health care, a $15 minimum wage, expanding Social Security, tuition-free college, peace on earth, goodwill toward all.
