Standing at the beginning of the Democratic National Convention and following the Republican National Convention, you would think everyone would be able to unify and stand against Donald Trump.
And then Wikileaks released thousands of emails showing how the DNC colluded with the Clinton campaign as well as the media to elect Hillary. You know, because it was HER turn. Because we need to be with HER.
The DNC did not care who the people wanted. It is obvious in the emails released so far that the cares of the Democratic voter at large meant little to those running the show. In fact, we did not have a Democratic election. We had a choice selected for us that we were just supposed to stand behind. Not unlike those in Communist countries where one party and one choice is given.
And how was this done?
By having moles in the Sanders campaign.
Having MSNBC pull video at the request of the DNC.
Attacking Morning Joe and demanding apologies.
Creating fake protests of the RNC and Trump.
Trying to plant fake stories about Bernie being an atheist.
Having Politico send stories to the DNC to have them pre-approved for publication
And many more…
And here is the question: If Hillary was such a strong candidate, then why did this all have to occur?
The truth is, she is extremely weak. Even without an indictment from the Department of Justice, Hillary was shown to be an extremely reckless steward of the State Department and our national secrets. Her untrustworthy numbers are growing daily. This was before the DNC Wikileaks. Who knows how much further her unfavorability will go?
Despite all of this, they want us to vote for her anyways because Trump is evil, bad and should never be president. They want everyone to know a vote for Johnson or Stein is a vote for Trump. And they want everyone who decides to vote their conscience against the corruption they recognize from Clinton and the DNC to know they will be responsible for the Supreme Court bed by Trump or whatever else he may do.
But, no, that will fall on the DNC. They did not allow an unbiased election. They did not trust the people to pick the strongest candidate. Instead, they did everything they could to undermine Bernie and prop up the weaker candidate.
And Hillary Clinton’s campaign has decided to try to throw everyone off by blaming Russian hackers. OK, who cares? Whether it was the Russians, Anonymous, aliens or Elvis that hacked the emails, the fact remains they showed the DNC rigging the election against Bernie for Hillary.
And after all this, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has announced she will step down as the DNC Chair following the convention. Donna Brazile will step up to the job, despite her own hostility and complicitness in attacking Bernie in the emails.
Of course Hillary, in a moment of wishing to unify, decided to bring Wasserman Schultz onboard to her campaign “to serve as honorary chair of my campaign’s 50-state program to gain ground and elect Democrats in every part of the country, and will continue to serve as a surrogate for my campaign nationally, in Florida, and in other key states.”
That’s right, Hillary, place the woman that undermined the votes of thousands nationwide to prop up your campaign in your own campaign as a reward.
And despite all of this, Bernie has decided to continue to back her. He can do as he wishes, but so can I.
As such, I have decided that I cannot support her. I will either vote Stein or just support down ticket candidates. I will not, however, vote Hillary Clinton.
