Bernie > Hilary

If Hilary wins the nomination, I will be extremely pissed off, but I will grudgingly vote for her, because even a female anti-feminist, middle road, big-money bought and paid for, more of the same old shit, only pretending to support LGBT causes for votes, mildly racist, flip flopping, former Republican, Koch sucking "Democrat" is preferable to any of the Republicans, even if what I really want in office is a man who has supported civil rights for people of color and LGBT people consistently, risking his career over it, for the past 40 years; a man who has a 40+ year history of doing what is right even if it makes him unpopular, because fighting for the rights and welfare of his constituents is more important to him than votes, a man who does not accept money from wealthy donors hoping to get some kind of kickback for their investment; Bernie Sanders, in other words.

If you want to settle for more of the same old bullshit, where very little of any importance ever changes (and rarely for the good), where a spineless Democrat lets Republicans walk all over her because she and they are both getting their campaign money from the same 1% of people: the super wealthy, and therefore has the same masters they do (and unless you're a billionaire, that ain't you!), and therefore are not actually enemies of one another, but allies; if you want our first female President to be a woman who breaks through glass ceilings and repairs them behind her, thus blocking other women from following her, then vote Hilary Clinton.

But if you want someone who will fight tooth and nail, kicking and screaming, for your rights and for you to get paid a living wage (and the right to freedom of choice over your own body, for your right to vote, etc) even if it costs him future elections, a man who is beholden only to The People and doesn't accept Big Corporate Money, a man with 40 years of a feminist voting record, a man who actively listens to his constituents and seeks mutually beneficial solutions, who actually works to understand issues and to make his ideas be understood instead of just spewing forth meaningless sound bites and political hot words, vote Bernie Sanders in your local primaries, and again on Voting Day.

(And of course, if you want to slide back into Nazi Germany, vote Donald Trump. To slide back down to the bronze age, any of the other Republicans will do.)
