TAKING A STAND FOR AMERICAN DEMOCRACY:
I WILL NOT BE BLACKMAILED OUT OF MY VOTE
I’ve been putting a lot of thought into this election, and I’ve come to the conclusion that if we want to survive we've got to bring the corruption of our democracy to an end. So I'm taking a stand right here and right now - I WILL NOT BE BLACKMAILED OUT OF MY VOTE, and I'm not gonna let anybody send me on a guilt trip talking about Donald Trump. That’s nothing but political subterfuge, an attempt by the Clinton forces to Blackmail the electorate into voting for Hillary Clinton, whose history clearly shows that she's every bit as bad as Trump; she just has sense enough to lie about her position on the issues based on who she happens to be talking to at the time.
“But she won the nomination,” they say. No, she didn’t win the nomination - she stole it. When she hired Debbie Wasserman-Schultz she not only confirmed that fact, but she thumbed her nose at us while doing so, and for me, that kind of arrogance was the last straw. It said that the people don't matter. They showed the very same kind of disregard for the people and our laws when Bill showed up at a Massachusetts polling place, where you're not suppose to even wear a Clinton button, when he casually went to visit Attorney General Loretta Lynch while Hillary was under active investigation by the FBI, and now in hiring a disgraced chairperson who was forced to resign for corruption. So the Clinton Democratic machine and their corporate cronies anointed Hillary the nominee just as surely as the U.S. Supreme Court anointed George W. Bush president after the 2000 election. If Barack Obama were running against Hillary Clinton today, he wouldn't have stood a chance - no one would. With their money, corporate ties, and control over the Democratic Party, again, the will of the people no longer count.
Bill and Hillary Clinton have brought fraud, deceit and corruption to the Democratic Party just like they have to everything else they've ever touched in the past 25 years. So to simply sit on our hands and let this assault on the democratic system take place will set a horrible precedent that will not serve us well. If we allow Hillary to just slide into the presidency based on the now documented corruption that has taken place, this unconscionable assault on our democracy won't just be an ugly aberration, it will become the norm. The corporatists will be able to make anybody president that they choose. So the people have got to stand up and say, "No, this is not going to happen."
I'm sure that a lot of Clinton lovers are going to be absolutely furious at what I'm saying here - both Black and White. But that's only because it's completely meaningless to them what the Clintons have done to the Black community. That speaks volumes, and it also explains why Black lives don't matter.
