    Yer. she is a socialist for sure. I heard her say that she was going to take some of the profits from the energy companies and do her magic with it, what ever that program would be. She said that 10% is too much for a company to make. By the way, both pepsico and coke make 19% profits, but she didn't mention them.

    Interesting quotes. Actual words, taken out of context, for the express purpose of pushing a false agenda. If I gave a 30-minute speech, I'd guess it'd be possible to pick various words, in the order I'd spoken them, and make up a statement that said practically anything one wanted me to say. The person who originally wrote this list was being dishonest. I abhor Clinton (both of them,) but I believe in honest discourse. Phil E

    Neil...

    I would concur completely.... We are in a great deal of trouble. When the Clinton family is the "best" choice from one of our "powerful parties"... It is evidence that our country is in a very sad state of affairs when it comes to leadership...

    Taking words/pictures and organizing them to convey a particular message, that may or may not be accurate is what the news medis (TV,radio,newspapers) do on a daily basis. You just have to be smart enough to gather ALL the info and form your own conclusions, do take what is told to you as gospel. Our society has become very lazy, we don't always think past the headline. Sad...
