[2015-11-19 13:46:39] <WikiLeaks> We believe it would be much better for GOP to win.

[2015-11-19 13:47:28] <WikiLeaks> Dems+Media+liberals woudl then form a block to reign in their worst qualities.

[2015-11-19 13:48:22] <WikiLeaks> With Hillary in charge, GOP will be pushing for her worst qualities., dems+media+neoliberals will be mute.


[2015-11-19 14:06:36] <WikiLeaks> GOP will generate a lot oposition, including through dumb moves. Hillary will do the same thing, but co-opt the liberal opposition and the GOP opposition.

[2015-11-19 14:07:15] <WikiLeaks> Hence hillary has greater freedom to start wars than the GOP and has the will to do so.

Say what you will about this political logic. But it is still, simply, political logic and not any statement of solidarity with the GOP or alt right, etc.

Also it's an interesting example of long-range thinking, something absent from the American 'conversation.'
"It seems to be what we have now is a political system which has essentially become, for the last thirty or forty years, a war on the human imagination."
