I just made a post on Kos in reply to a front pager who’s really pretty good. I’ll reproduce it here, in its entirety, for those who don’t want to click on a Kos link (Uni).
I’m going to vote for Bernie (0+ / 0-)
I live in DE. My vote doesn’t matter, because I live in DE and we’re the second “blueist” “state” after DC. My vote is diluted compared to some “red” nightmare like WY, SD, or UT.
If that’s not blunt enough, my vote doesn’t count as much as a vote in a state like SD, where I grew up and a source of eternal shame, for me.
So, I don’t expect Bernie to be the nominee. I’d go further, and add that I’d expect Bernie to be the same disaster that Barry Goldwater was for conservatives, but I don’t have to, because he won’t be the nominee. Money will take over, and Clinton will win the Democratic primary.
And I will vote for her in the general election.
Because Republicans have gone batshit crazy.
But I have to be honest. I’m tired of voting against, instead of voting for.
Hillary is as pro-corp as it gets. And I’m for “we the people”. The huddled masses. The poor and middle class.
I think, like most politicians, Hillary is looking out for the people who will help her get elected. The wealthy, and the corporations (thanks to Citizens United).
Paint her as the best option. Don’t paint her as being responsible in looking out for my best interests. Bernie is that guy.
Am I nuts?
