You know it’s campaign season when the Democrat apologists start proclaiming their “grudging” support for their party’s nominee and trot out all the usual excuses for why we should all sit down, shut up, and take our political ass-raping like good little voters.
Personally I can live with President Obama’s policies and by the same logic Hillary Clinton’s. I may not like the policies, I may disagree loudly and in my opinion they are too easily dragged to right of the great divide, but to even think of allowing another Republican jackass into the White House just makes me want to vomit.
What makes me want to vomit is your utter uselessness as a human being.
You don’t want a right-wing extremist of a Republican in the White House, so you’re going to vote for a right-wing extremist Democrat instead. And this is logical how? Who appointed the cat food commission to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Education, Food Stamps, and so on? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who ordered the execution of American citizens—including a 16-year-old kid—without so much as charging them with a crime? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Whose Justice Department defended DOMA in court with a brief invoking incest and pedophilia? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who appointed a Supreme Court justice with a spotty record on abortion rights and civil liberties, not once but twice? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who bailed out Wall Street with trillions of taxpayer dollars, no strings attached? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who blocked any and all chance for true health care reform in America and then proceeded to hand the insurance and pharmaceutical industries a massive gift of millions of forced buyers, all without even the pretense of making health insurance and medicine even remotely affordable? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who launched an illegal attack on Libya in violation of the Constitution? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who expanded illegal domestic surveillance to levels that would make Dick Cheney jizz in his pants if he were capable of getting it up? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who has persecuted and prosecuted more whistleblowers than all other presidents combined? Obama the DEMOCRAT. Who rammed the NDAA through Congress and blocked an amendment that would have prevented American citizens from being imprisoned by the military indefinitely without charge or trial? I’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count.
I could go on, but I trust you get the point. Let’s not forget Obama did all this with enthusiastic support from his party, which for the first two years of his regime controlled both houses of Congress until they blew the 2010 midterm elections. If you really think Clinton, who is even farther to the right than Barry O., can be trusted not to try and out-Republican the Republicans once in office, then you’re in for a massive disappointment. It’s people like you who’ve done more to cripple the left in the U.S. than any vote-suppressing GOPher. Grow a pair and vote third party if you can’t stomach Clinton, because no one’s telling you to vote Republican and no, a vote for a third party or independent candidate is not wasted nor is it voting for the Republican. If you want the Democrats to shift their policies leftward, you have to make them fear losing your vote. But you won’t dare, so they feel free to dismiss and laugh at you because they know they own your behind and you’ll never dare do anything to prove otherwise.
You’ll vote for Clinton because you actually agree with and like her policies. That’s the message she’ll take from you and everyone who thinks like you, because you refuse to admit that a ballot is an endorsement of a set of policies, regardless of your intent when casting it. Deny it all you want, but you know for a fact it’s the truth. Don’t get on your high horse like you do every election cycle and blame people who don’t vote for either major party for the Apocalypse you helped cause with your craven cowardice and sniveling party sycophantism. If you want to blame someone, look in the mirror.
I would also like to point out that Obama’s appointees to the courts haven’t exactly been stellar, and even when they had the numbers to filibuster the Democrats—including Obama—sided with the GOP on the most right-wing of the SCOTUS judges: Roberts, Alito, Scalia, and Thomas. That just proves how utterly worthless the argument is that we should toss our votes in the trash by voting for Clinton or whichever other corporate-owned tool the Democrats nominate.
Me, I’m voting for Jill Stein because Bernie will throw his support behind Clinton if she is crowned the Democrats’ nominee. I will not be responsible for another four to eight years of fascism. You can’t make that claim without lying.
