Christ, HC's supporters are a bunch of entitled, arrogant idiots.
It's supposed to be automatic that Sanders' supporters go blindly, obediently into HC's corner? That's what the halfwits expect? I think Sanders was foolish to ever say he'd support Hillary in the end game. His strategy of trying to push the party and Clinton leftward was silly to begin with.
It was never going to happen. It's a mindless, manufactured-centrist state after all. Few budge from their plans, including the over 500 delegates who pledged to Clinton before Sanders even entered the race.
I had my candidate, too. He lost. Not the first time. This also won't be the first time I ignore my candidate's opponent. That's politics, kids, as much as are the DNC's compromises and party rhetoric. The little show of a faux Utopia that the Clintons and the Obamas and the rest of the centrist-neoliberal political class has set up for itself is quite the thing, just not mine.
Party unity my ass.
Hey, isn't this supposed to be a democracy? I was a Sanders supporter. Now that he hasn't a chance to win the last thing on my mind is to switch to HC. Are you joking me? That ain't gonna happen. I'll vote for Stein or write someone in. Or I won't vote.
That wouldn't be a first either.
The last thing I'm going to do is tell Sanders to shut up on behalf of the Queen, the DNC, and the aristocracy. I'm sure there are more like me, but it makes no difference if there are or are not.
What stake do I have in a Clinton presidency? None, because I'm looking ahead and seeing areas where the U.S. could use some sensible work, and Clinton is not capable of nor predisposed to provide that.
In terms of their command of the issues I'd like to hear politicians talk about, there is absolutely no difference between Clinton and Trump. Oligarchy and all that...They don't say anything!
While Trump bloviates, Clinton coos. I'm not interested in either one of the frauds.
Sanders was the only person talking about economic inequality and other concerns of the working poor before he lost, and he didn't do a very good job of it at that. So it's over.
Stay in the thing, Bernie, for the hell of it. The idiots disrespect too much, take too much for granted, expect too much, and act out too much, like the spoiled rich kids they are.
Are the Clintonites fucking nuts, or just plain stupid?
