And you should be in charge of explaining everything to anyone.
Clinton’s speech tonight at the DNC was like sunlight into the dark hearts of the Ayn Randians, vulture capitalists, racists, and Tea Partiers. He emphasized that what is morally right (caring for the poor, supporting human rights, strengthening education, caring for our planet, being responsible about national relations and natural resources) is also good business. He explained the genius new student loan proposal, which ties payback to income, so that people are free to GET an education and then take modest jobs or choose a life of service without fear of drowning in debt. He explained Obamacare, and what Medicare and Medicaid actually covered.
And he laid out a clear record of the last fifty years- two and a half decades of Republican polices, which have led to staggering gaps between the rich and the poor, to war, to debt, and to the stagnation of growth, and two and a half decades of Democratic policies, which have led to economic recovery, double the job creation, more time of peace, and a better record on human rights, social stability, and, important but often overlooked in all but Bhutan, national happiness.
The overall record speaks for itself. And Clinton can speak for me ANY TIME HE WANTS TO.
Just… wow. The man gets better every day.
