11. If you don't support Hillary, or whoever is the candidate
we will lose again. Voting Green or voting for Nader, while appealing to our sensibilities and conscience, allow the rethugs to win again.

We must NEVER let them win again. We must rally behind whichever candidate is selected, no matter what we personally think of them.

My God, a centrist Hillary is still WAY better than anyone the BFEE puts up for nomination.

Personally, I will vote for whichever democratic candidate goes up against the rethug, just like I did this year. I will vote and I will contribute.

We MUST take our country back. Infighting gives them the edge. Democrats must be united on this. The future of our country depends on this.
