    Because her vote put it over the top. Oh, no it didn’t. Oh, it’s because the Republicans lied and furnished false information to Congress. That’s true. And so the only logical response is to boycott the vote or p*ss it away on a doofus third party, so that we can put the liars who killed all those people back in power..And here I thought Ted was off the rails. No, he makes perfect sense. More dead people, but NOT MY FAULT.

    So, TJ Destry, how do you justify the blood soaked hypocritical mass murdering harpy’s destruction of Libya based on a lie? Remember the fangfaced vampire simpering “We came, we saw, he died” while handing over Libya to the tender clutches of her pet jihadis?

    So, Ted, you’re suggesting this election is Hitler with bad hair versus Mussolini with better troops?

    The cartoon’s logic reminds me of the old joke: (A) Somewhere in the world a woman is giving birth every second. (B) My God! We’ve got to FIND that woman and STOP HER!.I don’t like Hillary Clinton, I wish she weren’t running, I can’t stand the sight of her husband lurking behind her. And I wish Trump were not the other choice. .Isn’t there going to be a third door on this political game show?

    I guess President Bush had nothing to do with it and Congress must have been on a ten year lunch break leaving everything up to Hillary. Talk about a biased point of view!

    “reckless military action with insane risks, benefits for the banks and the very rich, trade agreements to destroy American jobs, a” Sounds like GW Bush or many of the current Republicans in Congress.

    And there is a civil war going on in both parties over it. You may like the Neocon thugs that are in charge of the Republicans now but that is changing.

    So do you really hate Trump, or do you hate that the easy target of deserved vitriol isn’t going to take one for the ‘team’ because of WOMAN!

    Yes, she didn’t vote against the Iraq invasion, but its unfair to lay the blame at her feet— the Bush administration created and twisted arms and pushed that agenda to the point there were very few opposed to it. If you’re apportioning blame 99% of it has to go to the Bush administration.

    Interesting from the group who says W is off limits for the last 8 years because this is Obama’s mess. Now we can go back and examine what happened? But only as it pertains to Clinton? I would think by your logic the Iraq war is THIS congress’s responsibility and W and Clinton didn’t have anything to do with what is happening today.

    Unfortunately, she is one of the problems. She is certainly a warmonger, and is possibly an outright war criminal by the standards of the Nuremberg War Crimes trials. I don’t see anything insane in calling attention to the fact that she supported to murder of hundreds of thousands people in Iraq and elsewhere not as necessity, but simply for political advantage. Yes, Trump has indicated he would act similarly. It is morally impossible to vote for either of them.

    Both sides have been emotionally presented in the various comments. It is going to be serious decision to make come fall. Just remember, neither one can do a damn thing without Congress backing them. Executive Orders only go so far.

    Clinton voted in favor of the invasion of Iraq, which was a war crime by the standards of the Nuremberg War Crimes trials. Given her supposed powers, intelligence, experience, and connections, it is very difficult to believe that she didn’t know that the justification for the war was bogus. She was, then, almost certainly an informed, willing accomplice before the fact, that is, guilty of participating in a war crime. I don’t see this as being much different from the other war criminals of the era such as Bush, Cheney, Rice, Powell, Rumsfeld, and so on. Of course the facts could only be established positively by a formal war crimes trial, which we will never have, so we have to go by what we can observe. Her political behavior since 2002 shows that she is enthusiastic about military operations and indifferent to both practical and moral objections to them.

    To vote for a criminal is to attach oneself morally to their criminality. Your vote will probably not change the outcome of the election, but it might change you.
