RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $1800Goal: $3000

Ross Perot[edit]

" George H.W. Bush probably would have sailed to an easy reelection if Perot hadn't entered the race and siphoned off Republican votes."

This is literally contradicted in the second paragraph of the Ross Perot page:

"Many claim that he acted as a spoiler, costing Bush the 1992 election. Exit polls from the election show that his support came evenly from potential Clinton and Bush supporters, with a significant amount of his support abstaining from a hypothetical two-way election.[1] Furthermore, the portion of the race during which Perot was absent, from July until the start of October 1992, had Clinton ahead of Bush in all major national polls[2] and in the electoral college tally. In those Perot-less polls, Bush often polled close to the 37% he ultimately won. Bush's approvals in 1992 were consistently in the low 40s and upper 30s, a range similar to Jimmy Carter's in 1980.[3] Perot's political views on hot-button social issues such as gay-rights, abortion, and free-trade were characterized by the left-of-center bent.[4]"

Clinton's record for political expediency....[edit]

... is actually quite well documented in the text of the rest of the article. There is no reason to add a {{fact}} template to the lead section. Repeated attempts to do so are both pointless, and appear to be consistent with the persistent attempts to whitewash this loser. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 01:21, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Foundations[edit]

Is no one going to mention the fact she took money from her foundation for her daughters wedding?--リムルテンペストRimuru Slime.png 23:58, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

No. Because they didn't do so according to theWashington PostAriel31459 (talk) 02:35, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

The "Israel" section[edit]

Am I seeing ghosts or has this been written by someone who bears a grudge against either Clinton, Israel or both? Evil Zionist (talk) 00:58, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

The Horseshoe Theory is proven correct[edit]

I was a regular visitor, and concessional contributor to this site years ago but I found myself slowly drifting away as RW gradually became overran with imbecilic Bernie bros with an outrageous axe to grind against centrist politics, moderate Dems and the Clintons in particular. The far left seems to care more about fighting moderates, centre-leftists, liberals and anyone else who doesn't subscribe to their ideologically pureness of what the left should be. The real enemy is Trump and his nationalist fascist buddies who want to ruin our globalised world. Oh, but that's right. The far left also hate liberal progressiveness and would prefer a world where ultra-nationalism returned. Fucking idiots. The lot of you. Oriel (talk) 19:34, 30 April 2019 (UTC)
