I cannot, in good conscience, vote for a man (Trump) who calls women "bimbos," promotes the beating of protesters, and says he will tell the Chinese, "Listen, you motherf*&kers, we're going to tax you 25%." I also cannot, in good conscience, vote for a woman (Clinton) who is backed by people who have engaged in all manner of financial crimes - people who financially prey upon the poor and the weak, with glee, so that they can have lives of great luxury (big bank executives, hedge fund managers, predatory lenders, super-wealthy investors, etc.).
If confronted with these choices--choices that go against everything I believe in--I will write in "Sanders," vote for Jill Stein (the Green Party candidate), or not vote at all.
Bernie Sanders is offering us a chance that comes around very rarely, a chance to begin to get big money out of our political system. A chance to begin to get those who benefit off the misery of others out of our government. I emphasize "begin" because, contrary to economist Paul Krugman's ridiculous (and continuous) assertions, we are very aware that change will not occur overnight with a Sanders victory.
Ultimately, the townspeople of Little Tall Island voted to give up one of their children to Linoge. But whether Linoge could have carried out his threat to kill everyone is debatable, since one of his spells had failed earlier. Also, after the child was given away, the mother yelled out "You tricked us!" Linoge replied, "Perhaps you tricked yourselves."
Let's not make the same mistake as the townspeople of Little Tall Island. Let's stick to our basic principles: Let's not support bigotry, and let's not give white collar criminals a "get-out-of-jail-free" card - as Obama has done, and as Clinton will continue to do (to secure future campaign financing).
So again, I make the same plea as Constable Anderson: Don't do this. Please. Please.
