Excerpt: "There's no doubt that Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street. Even more dangerous, though, is that she is the candidate of the military-industrial complex.

From David: Electing the next president is not a beauty contest, or a competition to see who has the best debate zingers. This person will be helping to steer the future of our planet as we are experiencing critical levels of global instability, and environmental catastrophe looms ever closer.

from Bernie Sanders:
"The test of a great and powerful nation is not how many wars it can engage in, but how it can resolve international conflicts in a peaceful manner. I will move away from a policy of unilateral military action and regime change, and toward a policy of emphasizing diplomacy, and ensuring the decision to go to war is a last resort."
