Unity Pledge [View all]

Due to some health reasons, I've been away from all news and political sites for about 6 weeks. I am playing a little catch up trying to figure out what's going on in the world now.

One thing that I'm picking up on is it seems that once again the Democratic party seems to be ripping itself apart in the primary and it upsets me enough to want to withdraw again.

In 2016 I voted for Bernie in the primaries and voted without reservations for Hillary Clinton in the general election.

This year, I'm not 100% sure who I'll vote for in the primaries, in part because my state goes so late in the season that candidates drop out by then, currently I'm fairly certain it isn't Bernie.

However, I pledge that if he gets the nomination I will wholeheartedly support him and work toward him being elected.

I'm begging others, please, no matter how fervently you support and campaign for your candidate in the primary and no matter how much you love them, if they do not get the nomination, please vote for the nominee in the general election. Be angry. Be upset. Hate the candidate if you want, but vote for them. We already know what the alternative will be.

Please, we cannot afford another 2016. We just can't.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
