Corporate Values versus American Values -

Everyone on the Hartmann show needs to stop framing the supreme court justices as either Progressive/Liberal/Left or Conservative/Right.

Start using Corporate Values Justices versus American Values Justices and nominees.

American values seem to be all over the place.... how does one define American values when most people would only cite trite phrases, this is what America great. I believe in 'calling 'em as I see them', when justices believe corporations have as much rights as the typical American, I would certainly call that Right Wing. Polls have shown the majority of Americans do not agree with this recent court decision.

Heck, I'd replace the term Corporate values (conservatives) vs. American Values (progressives) anyday. It makes a clearer distinction between the two. A lot of middle class Americans who call themselves conservatives would find they really aren't.

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
