I am an outcome-oriented political activist. Here are the possible outcomes I see: [View all]

1. There is no outcome possible where Bernie Sanders becomes President.
2. There is an outcome possible where Hillary Clinton becomes President.
3. There is an outcome possible where Donald Trump becomes President.

When I look at those three possible outcomes, which are the only possible outcomes, barring some catastrophe, my decision is simple:

I completely support Hillary Clinton's election as President of the United States! I will work to the utmost of my abilities to achieve that outcome.

I believe that no other possible outcome is acceptable in a sane world.

If you disagree, then you can only be supporting the outcome that is Donald Trump becoming President. If that is the case, then you are essentially dead to me. I will no longer respond to any arguments you make. At this point, only outcomes matter. We have two candidates who can be elected: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Which candidate do you support?
