Again, I would say that your “integrity” is admirable if it hadn’t had serious, lasting repercussions for people all across the United States.

You make an extreme presumption that a Clinton presidency would have been objectively better than a Trump one. I understand your echo chamber firmly believes this, but I don’t necessarily buy it.

You and I have vastly different projections on the counterfactuals.

There’s no doubt in my mind, for instance, that Hillary would have already had boots on the ground in Yemen, and would have committed us to a very serious military engagement in Syria. She as much as said so in the debates, and her stint at Secretary of State, where she manipulated Obama into disastrous actions in Libya, is proof.

My vote is mine, and the Democrats can in fact earn it. I rather like Tulsi Gabbard, for instance. But they didn’t earn it in 2016.
