If I could vote, I might vote for Hillary, even though Dr. Jill Stein better represents my views. However, I found it very offensive that Hillary-supporting democrats are being so self-righteous. What is said in this article might very well apply to Hillary supporters. The neoliberal left created this economy that failed so many of the most vulnerable people in the country. Now, if these people refuse to vote for the neoliberal candidate, and choose to risk it by voting for the only candidate who represents their progressive views, you call them selfish, stupid, attention-seeking?!
If Hillary does not win, blame Hillary, blame Trump supporters, blame DNC for rigging the primary, blame people who don’t vote, but it is disgusting for you to blame people who make the decision to vote for the true progressive. If not for the mentality that “Bernie can’t win” (and if DNC was fair), Bernie might have won. At some point, sooner or later, a generation is going to make the move to vote for third parties. Who knows when the right time is, or if there is ever a right time.
I would vote for Hillary, because I am not in the bottom and I can wait until things get better hopefully…People in the bottom are living on the edge and ready to have a revolution. To them, Hillary and Trump make very little difference. I don’t agree, but I can understand.
