Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton

A Letter to Bernie Sanders Supporters Voting for Hillary – Don’t Vote for Evil

If you believe that we who are #BernieorBust are 'spoiling' the system, remember this system gave us Trump and Clinton

In the 60’s and 70’s there was a silent movement put in place by the elite class. The Powell doctrine corroborates this. It was essentially a manifesto dedicated to enriching the lives of the 1% at the cost of the 99% while dismantling the new deal in any way possible.

One facet of this movement was to divide and conquer the two party system. Let’s separate out the fringes on abortion on the right, and gun control on the left. Let’s get hippies in one party and religious zealots in the other. Then we’ll control both parties from the middle, we’ll buy influence in Washington and whether they’re Democrat or Republican as long as they are centrist / neoliberal politicians it doesn’t matter. They will do our bidding and destroy the new deal for us.

It sounds like a conspiracy theory when you really say it out loud, but when you look at history, and you look at the corruption rampant in America, it’s not much of a stretch to really see the whole picture. When you look at bits and pieces it’s easily to stay blind, much the way a puzzle piece may not give a clue to the full puzzle until it’s all assembled and put in order.

Bernie Sanders is the last piece in this puzzle that has been scrambled since the 70’s when Neoliberalism came to power chiefly with the Reagans, Bush’s, Clinton’s and even Obama. Voting for Clinton because she’s the lesser evil just doesn’t make sense…

Let’s compare just Trump and Clinton for a moment.

Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump on Trade Deals:

Clinton: Yes on Nafta, TPP, TTIP, and as senator she voted yes on 6 out of 10 trade deals that came up, no on two, abstained from another two but supported them vocally, she was just busy campaigning against Obama at the time.

Trump: He says he’ll dismantle every trade deal he possibly can. His platform has been highly anti-trade.

Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump Blood on their Hands:

Clinton: Obvously there’s the Benghazi attack. There’s the regime change in Libya and Honduras and her vote for the Iraq War. I honestly don’t know that you could really put a number on the lives destroyed by Hillary Clinton. If you extend that to supporting the Crime bill and the number of people’s lives destroyed over small amounts of Marijuana that could have gone on to live meaningful lives as part of society, then there’s millions more.

She even idolizes and calls Henry Kissinger who is known as being almost next to Hitler as a genocidal maniac.

Trump: He’s fired quite a bit of people obviously in his line of work and on TV, lost people money in bad business deals. But as far as we know – nobody’s died because of any of that.

Sure he’s a bigot and racist at his rally’s but some say he just says what the crowd wants to hear. Remember he used to be a Democrat, and I think he’s more progressive than Hillary. There’s also the idea that he’s a plant by the Clinton’s to help get Hillary elected, would be funny if that were true but backfired.

I’m not necessarily saying vote for Trump, nor would I say give up on Bernie. My sincerest hope is that the Republicans find a champion to run as an Independent so Bernie has a reason to run as an Independent too. A 4-way horse race would be awesome to behold. It would also make history and get a large electorate out to vote, and when that happens Bernie would win by a landslide.

To be Bernie or Bust doesn’t mean you’ll necessarily write him in. What it really means is that you will not vote for anyone who is ‘bought and paid for’. It means that you’ll do your due diligence to research out every candidate and only vote for the progressives – not the neoliberals. If we never allow a neoliberal wearing the cloak of a Democrat to get elected again we can take back the country one election at a time.

Gary Olsen in a Letter to the Editor said it well:

To those Hillary Clinton folks who believe Bernie Sanders supporters are “spoilers” if we now refuse to vote for Clinton in the general election, my response is: How can we “spoil” a putrefied system that’s just given us Donald Trump and Clinton?

    Trump’s ability to topple the world’s economic stability is frightening. Calls himself the “King of Debt’. And then there’s Hillary, who wants to appoint her husband as the new ‘Job Czar’. The same idiot who signed NAFTA which sent over 700,000 outsourced American jobs to Mexico.

    Bernie Sanders & Dr. Jill Stein are light years ahead of the other candidates.

    • Kirk Kirkpatrick

      “Bernie Sanders & Dr. Jill Stein are light years ahead of the other candidates.”

      Sure he is. The has not achieved nearly as much for progressive causes and of course there is that White Man (Supascoopa) explaining to all of those poor dumb blacks that he knows they are not voting for the right person. They should simply follow him, right? Forget the fact that in decades of civil service Bernie has never had a black staffer. Do not look behind the curtain. Don’t notice that every one of his major advisors even today are white men.

      Well guess what, I have lived in multiple societies where they have already implemented almost everyone of Bernie’s ideas. And while I liked that Bernie does not seem to understand the existing systems very well and he misrepresents those system str his followers.

      Did you guys know your taxes will double? I do not think this is a “bad thing” and I have paid this type of tax burden before, but can someone show me Bernie saying this? Please don’t feed me his bullshit. If no one else has done what he proposes without serious increases in tax burden across the board, there is no reason to believe Bernie, who has never done this, can.

      I stopped giving to Bernie because his plans are so weak and his representation of them are not real .

        Gonna ignore your racist comments because they don’t help your argument. There is no ‘curtain’ hiding Sanders’ policies. He’s been telling everyone the following since he started campaigning…

        Sanders’ proposal will save the average middle-class family thousands of dollars a year in health care. Average families would only pay $1,100 in health care income taxes. That’s $3,855 less than what it would pay out-of-pocket for the average premium ($4,955, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation) and $5,173 less if a deductible ($1,318, for individual coverage) is factored in. As for employers, the 6.7 percent payroll tax means employers would put up $3,350 for family coverage. That’s also thousands less than the average employer premium contribution of $12,591. Yes, your taxes will be raised a little, but the savings on health insurance saves an average family thousands each year.

        Sanders’ Tax Wall Street Plan would raise $300 Billion and create millions of new jobs rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. Big Banks have enjoyed massive tax breaks and are being awarded billions of our tax dollars for basically doing nothing but increasing in size. Wall Street got a big boost when U.S. taxpayers bailed out some of the largest financial institutions in 2008. Sanders has proposed a speculation tax on Wall Street, a levy on every stock, bond or derivative sold in the United States. The revenue would go toward free tuition at public colleges and universities and would also be used to pare down student debt and pay for work-study programs.

        Last month Gallup released a study that found nearly half of Americans express a “great deal” or “fair amount” of confidence in Sen. Bernie Sanders to recommend the right thing for the U.S. economy — the highest ratings among the five remaining presidential candidates. Americans have the least confidence in Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton. The two candidates who have the worst approval ratings in all of American history.

        Bernie’s choices for the Democratic platform committee kinda blows your white only theory out of the water. Doesn’t it?

    Good letter. As of the other day I heard 25% of us will not vote for Clinton, the rest is just falling for the b. s. called fear, is made to feel guilty when it’s not our fault, is going for the lesser of 2 evils when the lesser is just as evil and ultimately is afraid of change.

  • Kirk Kirkpatrick

    The author is bought and paid for. The worst part of this is the the author actually thinks he made a point. This is the American disease.

    BIG OPINIONS – very very little knowledge.

    I would bet money the author could not name 5 cites in Libya. But “Obvously there’s the Benghazi attack”. Sure there is. Tell US all about it, expert! I mean you as a “Web developer and Marketer” are surely an expert on military responses and diplomatic security.

    So ‘splain it to those of who actually served in Diplomatic positions overseas.

    Like the web samurai below, they are certainly “Legends in their own minds”

    But I dealt with people like the author behind the Iron curtain. The “absolutely sure” Soviets who “Knew” Americans all ate of of Garbage cans. How did they know?

    Well that is easy, the same way a “Web Developer and Marketer” knows the “a silent movement put in place by the elite class.” Because as a “Web Developer and Marketer” in small town ‘Merica he is so “up on” geopolitics. And the plans of the global elite. Patrick, how many of the global elite do you know? Why do they share their plans with you?

    If you believe this letter, you are as much of the problem as Trump is.
