Talk about the tail wagging the dog. The voters of the city of New
York alone (The rest of NY state favors Sanders.) should not decide for the
citizens of the whole country, and rob them of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to accomplish something meaningful for our common future.
And what is at stake in that future? Climatic change is everywhere
evident. Fossil fuel dependency under Hillary will continue, because she took
the producers’ money. Conflict in the Middle East spill over into Europe and
threatens our civil liberties at home. The future under Hillary is more of the
same, because she relies on neo-con money and clout. Panama Papers type of tax
dodging shifts the burden onto the common man. Hillary will not stop that,
because she helped the banks set up the conditions. Student debt burden
deprives us of bright minds and youthful energy. Hillary will not stop that,
because the banks paid her. The list goes on and on.
At heart, the defining issue should not be simply centrist-left versus
progressive, nor female versus male, nor even the checkered history of barely
legal acts, such as private server for classified materials, enabling the illegal
Honduran coup, quid pro quo Clinton Family Trust funds, obscene fees for
speeches to Wall Street, etc.. And decidedly, her selection should not be based
on fear of the lofty heights of worthwhile goals, for we Americans are not
descended from fearful men.
No, at heart it is character, or lack thereof. It is the reason we
hesitate to install Windows 10 , why we walk away from a car deal, why we tune
out a talk show. Our common sense tells us there is hidden danger there, foreboding
a relationship we will live to regret. A Clinton Oval Office is precisely that
