We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Hillary Clinton – the ‘Liberal’ Puppet for War

Click here to access article by Finian Cunningham from Strategic Culture Foundation

This Irish independent journalist looks at her history of promoting pro-war activities throughout the world and other policies to insure that nothing changes in the rule of the plutocracy in the US. 

I think that her hawkish support for US wars is probably influenced by her Democratic party handlers who, for years, have been grooming her as the first woman president. They want to assure conservative people that she will continue to support US's imperial policies. 
Americans will see no change under a Hillary Clinton presidency except for further deterioration in their social conditions. The rest of the world, and Russia in particular, can be sure that Clinton will pursue more of the same militaristic aggression that characterised her four-year stint as Washington’s top diplomat.

Whether described as "liberal", "conservative" or "hawk" – all American presidential candidates are the same in practice. Puppets for sale.
