I hate that it always turns out to be the “best of poor choices”, or lesser of evils.
I like Bernie, but doubt he will get anything done with our government. I prefer him because he doesn’t appear to be as sinister or in the pocket of people/corps I dislike as much as Hillary, or especially the repubs.
Hillary is supremely qualified to be president, but I don’t trust her to do the job or back the horses I support. .
- I’m against the Patriot act, (She is pro),
- I’m pro legalization of marijuana. (she’s against)
- I’m Pro-gay rights (She flipflopped)
- I’m Anti Keystone XL pipeline, she’s supported dirty oil
- I’m pro equal pay for equal work (so is she – so that’s one!)
- I’m for a single-payer healthcare system (she really is not)
- I don’t think work should be taxed at a higher rate than investment (she’s against, again)
- I am (and was) against the 2002 gulf war (she was pro, but has changed her tune now.)
That said, I suspect she will win the democrat nomination, and that’s better than anyone on the republican side as far as I can tell.
As for Bernie –
- He’s not a proven leader.
- I wonder why Vermont’s two biggest political leaders, Governor Peter Shumlin and Senator Patrick Leahy, have endorsed Hillary.
- He’s 75. That’s an old dude. What’s his expiration date in a job like President?
So, his disadvantages seem to rise over Hillary’s (the bullet list above were all items Bernie and I agree on.)
