That's still true of modern Dems, Hillary and Obama included. Opinion polls and their actions confirm this.
>But that’s who we are as a country
Again, not true.
>The defense system business model is too valuable to red
Not just red states. Blue states too. Hence long time Dem hawks like Feinstein in a very Blue, very peace loving state like Cali.
>We’re a country that’s pro predatory capitalism
Again, not true. The people realize the system doesn't work for them and have wanted something different FOR DECADES. It's the people in DC who don't want it to change.
>You can’t blame that on Democrats, fighting and consumerism
>are core to our national identity.
Again, that's bullshit. Those things feel like part of our national ID because Ds & Rs have been telling you that for decades.
