Response to retrowire (Reply #14)

Wed Jul 27, 2016, 03:44 PM

56. I am in the same place and have been supporting Bernie.

There's a lot of self-righteous back-patting going on among some Bernie or busters that they are determined to "vote their conscience" (Stein) and
unwillingness to understand the disaster that will come to this country should Donald Trump be elected.

I don't hear a concern among any of these 'busters' of what will happen to their fellow citizens who are struggling to get by--or have given up struggling and are homeless
or living in poverty already--should Trump win. We've seen on a small scale here in NC just what happens when Republicans take over. They are literally destroying
this state--in the four short years they've been in power--and made it a laughingstock not only in the rest of the country, but internationally, too. There are a lot of
Republican governors standing by in more states ready to do the bidding of a Trump administration.

It scares the crap out of me. We must stop Trump and the only way I see that happening is to elect Hillary and focus on the long game of holding her accountable
to the progressive values espoused by Bernie.
