For example, the Clintons obviously do not agree with Obama in some areas. But the point of disagreement is not the targeted result but merely the ways and means to achieve that targeted result. That targeted result is the complete undermining of the Constitution, your enslavement and you worshipping government as the savior of mankind instead of the true Savior.
