I know I'm having a very hard time distinguishing which of these two is worse. As gawd awful as Trump is, Clinton's record is completely stained with blood and hubris. If this movement keeps building, a Trump presidency would ignite the fight for economic, social, and environmental justice among the masses. But that's a scary proposition. World War III is an even scarier proposition, though. War with Syria will lead to war with Russia, despite Putin's resistance to it. (This man knows he's being played by Clinton and the neocon class she represents.)
But like me, the readers of these pages, are much better informed than the average bear. Unfortunately, a huge chunk of voters don't understand that in their support of Clinton, they are expecting her to deconstruct policies she and her husband spent their lifetimes building. This section of voters don't see the wolf in sheep's clothing because of a carefully constructed narrative that Trump is basically Mussolini and Hitler rolled into one, nevermind that Clinton puts Machiavelli to shame and actually has the blood of thousands and the suffering of millions on her hands.
On the other hand, there's reason to be concerned about Trump, along with the people he is surrounded by. Trump is a racist bully, who would never got the traction he did if it weren't for the corporate-owned news. He was less dangerous before the Republican Party sort of embraced him. Mike Pence for heaven's sake? Still, Trump is the undoing of the GOP whether he wins or not. But a Clinton win will secure the status quo of US (and DNC) policy for at least eight more years, and it will try to suppress and co-opt the movement as well. I simply will not vote for Clinton, and I won't be shat upon again by the Democratic Party. I look forward to the day when the Clintons are pariahs in the Democratic Party.
I'm keeping track of the polling in my state of Utah. Utah's DNC delegation was 80% Sanders delegates, so there's no love lost to Mrs. Clinton. With Stein and Johnson on our ballot as well, it could end up being a very tight race, as center right Republicans move to Johnson or Clinton, lefties move to Stein, and a disgusted religious electorate, opposed to hateful rhetoric and composed of both parties, just stays home. I will vote to ensure Clinton loses. I may be able to vote my principles with Stein (here's hoping), or I might have to actually pull the lever for Trump (god forbid).
