Jill Stein I’m Voting For, The Donald Trump Threat A Myth.

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

( I’m going to be voting third party for the first time in my life, but I consider it the most important vote that I’ve ever cast. Even though I know that Jill Stein is not going to win, I consider my vote for her a vote for democracy, and against corruption. It’s going to send a clear and unequivocal message to the Democratic Party to never, EVER try to play with my right to choose again. And if Donald Trump wins, oh, well.  Maybe it’ll have the unintended consequence of waking people up – and besides, Hillary is no better, and will very likely be much worse.
If Trump does win, he won’t be able to bust a grape. If you think Barack Obama hit a brick wall when he became president, just imagine what Trump will face. He’s a buffoon and one of the most hated politicians in the history of American politics, so he has absolutely NO support worth mentioning. Where Obama only faced a hostile Republican congress, Trump would be facing both a hostile Republican and Democratic congress, and a hostile American public as well. So all he’d be able to do is sit up in the Oval Office and play with himself. As a result, the worse thing that he would bring to the country is continued gridlock, and make us the laughingstock of the world, which we deserve.
On the other hand, Hillary has a political machine in place within the123-2016-presidential-election-nominees Democratic Party and the support of essentially ALL of Wall Street, so she’d be in a position to do serious damage.  It has been reported that the Clintons’ net worth is well over $200 million. They also control the $2 billion Clinton Foundation, so they’re comfortably entrenched in the very corporate culture that has the American people virtually enslaved. Their daughter, Chelsea, is married to Marc Mezvinsky, an American investment banker, co-founder of hedge fund, Eaglevale Partners, and was formerly an investment banker at Goldman Sachs. Thus, the Clintons and Wall Street are, literally, in-laws. So Hillary would continue the process that they began the last time they were in the White House – robbing the American people blind, and turning our democracy into a corporate plutocracy.

The Clintons walk like liberals and talk like liberals but they always seem to leave conservative policies in their wake. They’ve been more successful in promoting the conservative agenda and destroying the American middle class way of life than any other administration since the Civil War, including Ronald Reagan’s.  They’re responsible for NAFTA, which allowed $20 an hour jobs to be sent out of the country to be performed by people who make less per week than many upper-middle class Americans spent on lunch per day, and they gutted Glass-Steagall (which President Roosevelt put into place to prevent Wall Street greed from plunging the nation into a second Great Depression),  which led directly to the 2008 Wall Street crash. Clinton also abolished the Fairness Doctrine (no, it wasn’t Reagan as many people think. Reagan simply prevented it from being elevated from a regulation to a law, but Clinton abolished it outright). That led to the creation of the corporate media culture and propaganda machines like Fox News that were then allowed to spew conservative propaganda and disinformation with impunity.
Clinton’s “Welfare Reform” led to the undue suffering of millions of poor Americans, and then, after colluding with Ronald Reagan to flood the Black community with crack cocaine while governor of Arkansas, after becoming president, Clinton signed the most draconian crime bill in United States history to incarcerate on a massive scale the very victims of the crime that he committed  – and actually paid states extra to give those victims longer sentences.  As result, today there are more Black people under the control of the prison industrial complex than were enslaved in all of America in 1850, a decade prior to the Civil War, and that very same prison industrial complex became one of Hillary Clinton’s largest and most prolific political contributors.

Thus, as a direct result of Clinton’s unconscionable actions the lives of hundreds of thousands of Black people have been completely destroyed – and it’s still having a negative impact on Black people today. There’s currently a huge part of an entire generation of young Black people who don’t know anything about their culture, and don’t really know what it means to be Black, because the people who were responsible for teaching them were either dead, in prison, or mentally disabled by the affects of crack cocaine. As a direct result, instead of developing their potential and preparing for the future, many of these young people, who were literally raised by the corporate media, has been conditioned to believe that their role in life is to be criminals, drug addicts, and at the very bottom of society. In addition, they’re being mesmerized by the media by being fed a constant diet of music that celebrates drug use, killing one another, and referring to the very womb of their culture as “bitches and hoes.” So their fate is all but sealed. And worse, they’re unfit parents for the generation that’s coming up.
So when anyone even suggests that I should vote for Hillary Clinton, I’m absolutely insulted, because it clearly demonstrates that they are, at the very least, completely indifferent to the atrocities that the Clintons committed against the Black community.  People will say, “Okay, okay, so they destroyed a generation of Black people and herded others into concentration camps, but what else have they done wrong?” Give me a break!!!

Racism is not just the aggressive hatred of Black people, it’s also the complacent acceptance of atrocities committed against them. If the Clintons had committed a fraction of the atrocities against Jews as they have Black people, Hillary wouldn’t have even been able to run for office. But American’s casual indifference toward the suffering of Black people is about to come back to bite ’em, because the new paradigm in this country is not just about racism.  We’re currently knee-deep in a class war against people who don’t care any more about poor and middle class White people than they do Blacks or other minorities – and Hillary’s one of them.    The New York Times reported the following:
“In lucrative paid speeches that Hillary Clinton delivered to elite financial firms but refused to disclose to the public, she displayed an easy comfort with titans of business, embraced unfettered international trade and praised a budget-balancing plan that would have required cuts to Social Security, according to documents posted online Friday by WikiLeaks . . .
“In the excerpts from her paid speeches to financial institutions and corporate audiences, Mrs. Clinton said she dreamed of ‘open trade and open borders’ throughout the Western Hemisphere [NAFTA on steroids]. Citing the back-room deal-making and arm-twisting used by Abraham Lincoln, she mused on the necessity of having ‘both a public and a private position’ on politically contentious issues [in other words, sometimes it’s necessary to lie to the people]. Reflecting in 2014 on the rage against political and economic elites that swept the country after the 2008 financial crash, Mrs. Clinton acknowledged that her family’s rising wealth had made her ‘kind of far removed’ from the struggles of the middle class [or in other words, I’m one of you].”
So, what do I like most about Jill Stein?  That’s easy – she’s not Hillary Clinton. And finally, I’d like to respectfully suggest to the American people that they’re being played by the Clintons . . . again.
. . . Oh, and for those of you who are prone to give your genitals priority over your intellect, in the video below, notice the condescension and distain in which Hillary Clinton treats NPR correspondent Terry Gross as opposed to the respect she gives Terry’s male colleagues like Anderson Cooper and others, in spite of the fact that they were asking much more biting questions. Hillary is not a woman, she’s a political robot who’s only dedicated, or loyal, to one thing – Hillary Clinton.
