I am going to start actively supporting Hillary.

She was not my first choice. She was not even my second choice. I am not a Hillary Hater, I just couldn't get excited about her. My main issue is inequality and I felt other people spoke to that more eloquently than she.

But there are worse things than Hillary Clinton and the GOP is nominating one of them.

So I am moving on and going to actively support Hillary. I can't throw my vote away this year in a grand gesture. I would ask anyone thinking of doing so to really consider the consequences. A Hillary Presidency may not suit your political aesthetic; a Donald Presidency would likely be an unmitigated disaster for all of us.

3. I plan to vote for Hillary, but...

 

I will be doing so holding my nose high into the sky. That is all I will do though.

10. I never thought Trump stood a chance

But they are talking themselves into him. How, I have no idea.

And I think having to stomach saying "President Trump" for four years would be more sickening than having to vote for Hillary. So, I will do what it takes to keep that man out of the White House.

4. That means a lot coming from someone

whose concern is the wellbeing of our nation rather than mainly from partisan enthusiasm.

7. Political aesthetic? Is there only an aesthetic difference between the candidates?

Cause that's what's really important here.

24. What makes it difficult for me to actively support Clinton

 

Last edited Sat Jul 2, 2016, 07:49 AM - Edit history (1)

is not any political aesthetic. It is difficult because of my core moral values. She is less bad than Trump, though, and so I will vote for her.

19. "more eloquently than she"

 

Hard to judge, since she seems to have been forced to speak on that subject to any degree.

26. I appreciate your very honest reply.

Other's make childish comments about their support, or their "so called" support, but you have actually articulated your thoughts and put them into positive action. Let's elect Democrats to all levels, local, state and federal, and I, for one, plan to work very hard to accomplish this. I don't have a lot of avatars at the bottom of my comments. (not you Maru Kitteh, I love your's) but my heart is with this party and it's ideals.
