24. Oh I shouldn't vote for Hillary because there aren't any differences....

OMFG who the fuck actually believes that shit!

Could Hillary be a warmongerer based on her vote some 15 years ago - who knows. Maybe, maybe not. Joe Biden voted the same exact way and yet he never once advised Obama to go to war.

But I'd rather spend the 8 years protesting the wars Hillary might start knowing that at least at home we have a President that stands for the same values to protect civil rights, better affordable healthcare and higher standards of education than to spend 8 years protesting EVERYTHING.

I think someone did analysis that found Hillary and Bernie agreed on something like 85-90% of the issues. I'll take that any day of the week over enabling any vote that could give that idiot Drumpf the keys to the White House.

31. The platform looks nice...but it's not binding. Will rank and file Dems really fight to achieve it?

 

That remains to be seen. I know that opposing forces on the party platform fought hard to exclude much of the Sanders camp input including things that made it on like the $15/hr minimum wage. In fact, Hillary herself never mentioned "$15" when talking about the importance of raising the minimum wage at the Clinton-Sanders rally, so what does this non-binding platform really do for us, the people, not us the party?

Does anyone even remotely believe that dems like Claire McCaskill, Heidi Heitkamp, Joe Manchin, Joe Donnely, Angus King, or Jon Tester would fight to implement this platform as written?
