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.)
