Neither candidate is interested in stopping the use of the death penalty for federal or state crimes.

 

Neither candidate is interested in eliminating or reducing the 5,113 US nuclear warheads.

 

Neither candidate is campaigning to close Guantanamo prison.

 

Neither candidate has called for arresting and prosecuting high ranking people on Wall Street for the subprime mortgage catastrophe.

 

Neither candidate is interested in holding anyone in the Bush administration accountable for the torture committed by US personnel against prisoners in Guantanamo or in Iraq or Afghanistan.

 

Neither candidate is interested in stopping the use of drones to assassinate people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen or Somalia. 

 

Neither candidate is against warrantless surveillance, indefinite detention, or racial profiling in fighting "terrorism."

 

Neither candidate is interested in fighting for a living wage.  In fact neither are really committed beyond lip service to raising the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour  -- which, if it kept pace with inflation since the 1960s should be about $10 an hour.
