When Greens sometimes say there is no difference or no significant difference between Republicans and Democrats, they are engaging in hyperbole that undermines their case. This is unfortunate, because the Greens are bring up a serious issue: the vast similarities between conservative Democrats and the Republicans.

A good example of this can be found by noting some of the similarities between the positions of Hillary Clinton and George W. Bush, especially since Ms. Clinton often is portrayed as a “liberal” by the corporate media. Here are some instances:

Repealing NAFTA
Bush: Opposes
Clinton: Opposes

Withdrawing from the World Trade Organization
Bush: Opposes
Clinton: Opposes

The impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
Bush: Opposes
Clinton: Opposes

Wal-Mart
Bush: Pro
Clinton: Pro and was on board of directors for six years

Single-Payer Healthcare (or any other national healthcare plan that gets HMOs and insurance companies out of the healthcare busines)
Bush: Opposes
Clinton: Opposes

Withdrawing all US troops from Iraq
Bush: Opposes
Clinton: Opposes

Repealing the Unpatriotic Act
Bush: Opposes
Clinton: Opposes

Increasing the number of H-1b visas
Bush: Supports
Clinton: Supports

Attacking Iran
Bush: Supports
Clinton: Supports

Living Wage
Bush: Opposes
Clinton: Opposes

Law Cracking Down on Personal, not Corporate Bankruptcies
Bush: Supported
Clinton: Supported

“Three Strikes” Laws
Bush: Supports
Clinton: Supports

Death Penalty
Bush: Supports
Clinton: Supports

“No Child Left Behind” Law
Bush: Supports
Clinton: Supports

Admitting that Support of Iraq War a Mistake
Bush: Refuses
Clinton: Refuses

It was amazingly easy to put together this list of important similarities between the early Democratic frontrunner and a wildly unpopular Republican who currently is occupying the White House. In today's political context, Democrats should be able to be part of an opposition party, not a watered-down version of the Republicans. Ms. Clinton having many similar positions to those of Bush is as much an indictment of our political system as it is an indictment of how awful Hillary Clinton is.

  2. I saw Sicko last night. Ol Hillary is now firmly in the pocket of the Big Pharma and the Healthcare Industry. I have always considered the Clintons Republican-lite, especially after NAFTA.
