The reason I won’t vote for Hillary has nothing to do with her being vanilla progressive. Or her thoroughly disingenuous attacks on Bernie. It has to do with this: https://scholar.princeton.edu/sites/default/files/mgilens/files/gilens_and_page_2014_-testing_theories_of_american_politics.doc.pdf

tldr: A study from princeton that demonstrates that the opinions of average citizens absolutely no effect on the likelihood of a proposed policy being enacted. However, economic elites policy preference correlates with passage around 78% of the time. in other words: We no longer live in a democracy, we like in a plutocracy.

I’m sorry but you cant take dirty money and tell me your gonna fix the problem.

What I fear more than Trump, is a vote for Hillary that green lights more corruption and oppression by the 1%.
