1. I agree with you!

And if that gets me banned too, so be it. I cannot vote for an imperialist warmonger backed by Wall Street. I refuse to be condescended to and bullied by "Very Serious People" to vote for the lesser evil.

that DU coalesces around our candidate. Can't come soon enough, and as for whether all or just some remain? For me that is yet another reason to vote for Hillary. I'm not interested in reading highly partisan smearing and trashing of the GOP candidate either, no matter how awful he is in reality.

218. I'm guessing many people have come and left

because it's not what they were looking for. Hopefully, some will stay.

In any case, no doubt many DUers who are strong Bernie supporters do care about electing Democrats to many offices and and will stay involved, with or without him. Plus, the Democratic Party is a genuine big-tent party. We have many groups with diverse viewpoints, including conservatives. I don't think we need to worry that strong disagreement will just disappear -- that WOULD be boring.

15. policy decision

I think that's the way to go. To me, it seems that this contest, despite all of the insults and demonization, will end up being a vote for Berniecare or Obamacare. In the last few weeks, Bernie has been fleshing out his SP proposal. I fully expect that Hill will present specifics as to how she will improve the insurance mandated ACA. The public will sift through it, and make a policy decision.

59. The disdain for Clinton's

policies has NOTHING to do with Bernie Sanders.

I've had major problems with her corporatism, Wall Street connections, and neocon tendencies for more than a decade.

Some of you just love to try to paint Sanders supporters as "hating" Clinton because we want Bernie to win.

She's a standalone nightmare. Appointing Rovesy Kagan, the founder of the neocon movement, to be your bestest advisor when you're SOS, doesn't exactly foster warm fuzzies.

I'd have to vote Green.

And that was several months before Bernie got in the race. I was looking at O'Malley back then.

I think her policies more mirror the GOP than the Democratic Party.

217. Wrong. It is nowhere near a consensus.

 

Quite a few Sanders supporters have said they would vote for Clinton. The holding of the nose and the pre-medicating with alcohol have been mentioned as adjuncts to the vote, but the vote will still count.

There are some people who take the stance of the OP that they won't vote for Clinton. My personal guess is that quite a few of them will, if Clinton gets the nomination, change their minds as Election Day approaches. The campaign will drive home to them how awful the Republican nominee is.

Response to Jim Lane (Reply #217)

234. Yes, many will change their minds,

But I sincerely believe that the GOP has no chance of winning this election cycle, because the leaders of their party in this campaign are so extreme that they can be easily beat by any of our candidates. And that is probably why so many feel comfortable saying the will NEVER vote for Clinton. If the GOP were running a more reasonable candidate who was winning in the polls, I don't think we'd be seeing so many threads like this.

I will vote for her if she wins the primary, because I'm not a gambler. I want to be absolutely sure that the dems win. But if someone feels the dems are going to win no matter what, I'm not surprised that so many are taking principled stands against Hillary.

I think anyone who would come out and say that they won't vote for Hillary even if it means Trump or Cruz will win, and they are OK with that, probably should not be posting on DU.

Now guys, don't jump on me. Stop and think about what I just said. I'm a very progressive democrat, and I absolutely want Bernie or O'Malley over Hillary, but I'm also very much against Trump or Cruz winning, even if it just means four or eight more years of back peddling.

We cannot afford the back peddling.

What I am afraid of if Hillary wins, is that a lot of Dems might move to the Independent party out of disgust for the way this country and the dem party are headed and the fact that it doesn't seem like the people have the power to stop it.

Star Member darkangel218 (13,914 posts)

I could never/will never vote for HC
Whether in the Primaries or GE. (Which I doubt she will get nominated for). But in any case...

I would /could never vote for her.

If the Admins wants to ban me, in case she gets nominated, so be it.

I am not a liar. I don't care for the bullies bullying me into votting for the mainstream candidate. It is not going to happen.


I, as millions of voters, will stay true to ourselves.

So take that, establishment/status quo lovers.


You can't destroy all of us. We are majority and we will prevail.

Toodles!!!

157. The standards you set for yourself are draconian.

 

How would that work if you dare to think for yourself and vote for a candidate that isn't a Democrat?

My conscience tells me that voting for a candidate that I think is unfit to hold public office is the wrong thing to do. I've voted for Democrats many times and sometimes felt that I made the wrong choice and shouldn't have voted for them. Bill Clinton comes to mind. But, I never felt unmanned by doing so. And, although, I don't give a rip about patriotism I never even felt unAmerican for doing so. OTOH, I've never regretted voted for a third party candidate.

As does the ability to veto all sorts of crazy legislation that could come out of a Republican congress.

The majority of this country is likely to reject Trump or Cruz, who are far too radical for this country. When it comes down to the general election, we are up against some dangerous odds and we can't afford not to vote.

and who promises to work closely with Republicans in a "bipartisan" ethic "to get things done", and who campaigns against her only other real contender with a meme that he can't possibly get things done, because nothing he wants to get done is in the Republican's interests?

That is lala land politics, my friend.

Wasn't it justice Kennedy, appointed by Reagan, who wrote the recent judgement on marriage equality?
http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2015/06/26/supreme_court_legalizes_gay_marriage_here_is_the_beautiful_last_paragraph.html

The best you can say is that some candidate might veto some Republican legislation?
How about usher Republican legislation through, in a thoroughly bipartisan manner.

How about "mending fences" or however it might be described with Netanyahu, during her first months in office, so as to get Iran squarely back in the cross-hairs of the PNAC wars? Because her "strength", as they call it in the MSM, is in her foreign policy gravitas?

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sun Jan 24, 2016, 01:36 AM, and the Jury voted 3-4 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: It is against TOS, encouraging others not to vote for HC in the GE
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: How is this not automatically banned?
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Obviously, the poster thinks that her vote belongs to her to use in any way that is right for her and is not fond of being told how to vote by anyone. I agree with, and applaud, her.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I have to believe DarkAngel doesn't like being here at DU. Disruptive posting results in being put in the corner, comes back for two or three weeks, gets put back in the corner again, comes back, disrupts again.

People should have their jury responsibilities revoked if they're going to be applying 'the law' so unevenly. Stop acting like children.

Some people will vote in the GE regardless of nominee; others might not find certain candidates palatable. People are being ridiculous by abusing the jury system to drown out dissenting opinion though.

From what I have heard bans are handed out not because people choose not to support a Dem candidate in the GE, but rather because they trying to get others to follow their lead in not voting Dem.

I back Bernie, but if he loses, I will back Hillary. I've had 30 years plus of voting, and one thing I've learned is that rich conservatives plan ahead and never give up. I learned this. It took me too long to learn it because I don't think like them.

Change takes a long time, and Hillary will give us good appointments for the Supreme Court.

She is so much better than anything the Republicans offer, so don't stay at home. Don't let anger win over reason. If Hillary wins the primaries, don't stay at home in the general.

65. All through the cold war a certain "truth" was drilled into me,

which is that if the masses of people stay home at election rather than going out to vote, then it can be seen as a vote against the system itself, against "the regime". I say that this is a valid indicator. As a corollary I had it drilled into me that states that forced people to vote were by definition totalitarian.

"If you have a better way, I'm all ears".

Perhaps when there is no better way, declining to vote for any candidate, because all are reprehensible, is a valid choice.

Bush and Cheney and Kissinger and Kagan's PNAC wars rule with "choice",
or the very same rule without an advocate for "choice".

That's about it.

OK. Y'see what I'm getting at?

Hillary Clinton is an advocate AGAINST universal single payer health care. She says it isn't pragmatic, realistic, or in tune with the invisible hand of the marketplace. Awhile ago she wasn't. Or she said she wasn't. But at this point what can we believe about what she says? $140 million in take home fees *have* to make a difference of some kind.

If I willingly go along with such a lie, then I'll only prolong the lie.
Whatever nice feeling it might give me to go along with it isn't worth it.

So it isn't a big statement in its individual component, but I would say that sometimes it's worth it to give a big Fuck You raspberry to the liars.

If Clinton is our nominee, she will lose my state. Badly. As a result, I'd get "the luxury" of a meaningless vote in the general election.

(Clinton has zero chance of overcoming the entrenched hatred by rural voters, and her "Nope!" campaign cannot get enough urban voters out to overcome that. Sanders or O'Malley have a very low chance, but probably won't campaign here to boost that because there are easier states to win to get to 270.)

The fact that Americans don't learn from mistakes is something you point out, at least I'm inferring. The people in California chose the Terminator from the movies, as Governor, to solve their problems and it was another disaster movie.

Americans mightl choose a celebrity for President, who has catch phrases like, "you're fired"
and "you'll love it..it will be the best policy ...you'll love it"

You have such a good point because celebrity here in America is more important than anything else.

83. As a Bernie Sanders supporter, your logic eludes me.

 

You say you will never vote for Clinton in a general election. By doing that you would put a Republican in the White House. Perhaps even a fascist.

I wish Clinton and Sanders supporters would have more respect for one another on a forum like this. Perhaps that is simply not possible, politics being what it is. I wish most Democrats could rise above it though. I wish most people who believed in science, a higher minimum wage, more equal access to education, and a better health care system could rise above it.

It boils down to this, mostly:

Sanders supporters believe the best candidate is one who can lead a revolution, inspiring millions of people to rise up and VOTE. It is an idealistic belief, but Clinton supporters....do not confuse idealism with naivety. The Sanders campaign is not about plans. There are plans aplenty, everywhere. It's about big ideas. The details can only come with the actual work of government, but now, here and now, building the movement, it's the big ideas that matter. Thus the Sanders ad "America" with no words but a song and the American people. Clinton supporter may say such an approach lacks substance, but do not confuse substance with detailed policy proposals. Sanders knows single payer will not pass anytime soon. Do you really think as president he would not work for what is possible? Do you really think anyone but the American people can make the what is now impossible someday possible? We have to start somewhere, and for Sanders it starts not with compromise (that can wait) but with getting enough people to rise up and send a message to the corporate/governmental complex that cannot be ignored. That's when WE THE PEOPLE get the upper hand in the negotiation. The power in America has always been with the people, but they have to believe they still have it. They do.

I understand that Clinton is more experienced on the world stage, and has more detailed plans at this point. I get why many think Sanders is unelectable. The stakes are very high. But both Sanders and Clinton supporters believe the stakes are very high. Both are worried, very worried, about the future of America. In the end though, we both believe the same things (the important things, anyway)...we just differ on how and how fast we believe we can get there.

Clinton supporters are not sell-outs, and Sanders supporters are not naive revolutionaries leading the Democratic Party to the edge of the abyss. Both have something to say, and both have a reasonable point of view. The disagreement is what primaries are supposed to be about.

But can we try and be just a little less nasty towards each other than, oh I don't know, the Donald is to everyone he doesn't agree with? Can't we try and rise up above the kind of political dialogue that is going on all over the media, maybe just an its-bitsy bit?

We call ourselves "progressives." Seems to me we can make a lot more progress by respecting each other.

184. The flaw in your analysis is we don't have popular vote elections for president.

You say you will never vote for Clinton in a general election. By doing that you would put a Republican in the White House. Perhaps even a fascist.

The vast majority of us live in states that will give their electoral votes to the Democrat or Republican no matter how we vote.

For example, I live in NC. Clinton will lose the general election here. Obama won here in 2008 because "Hope and change" got enough urban voters out to overcome rural voters. Obama lost here in 2012 because he governed as a centrist, tarnishing "Hope and change" enough to reduce urban turnout.

The foaming-at-the-mouth rage towards Clinton from rural voters will ensure every. single. one. votes against Clinton. Even if the Republican promises to execute everyone in the state. And her "Nope!" campaign theme can not possibly get enough urban voters to overcome that. The final nail in the coffin is there are easier states to win in order to get to 270, so she will not make a serious effort to overcome these problems.

As a result, if Clinton is the nominee, I have "the luxury" of a meaningless vote.

(Sanders or O'Malley have a slim chance - those rural voters are pissed, and they might be able to redirect their anger towards the Republicans. Plus Sanders would be far better able to tap into the "Hope and change" that spawned Moral Mondays. But there's still easier states to win to get to 270, so neither of them is likely to fight here)

I'm kind of hoping if her supporters make that same comment you won't come on and castigate them for refusing to vote for the person they didn't support

If some Bernie supporters were told by their mommies to go clean their rooms, they would claim they were being bullied.


The act of bullying has to be accompanied by a threat. So far the only threats that I have seen are the non-existent ones coming from the minds of Bernie's supporters.

Acknowledging, maybe. But caring, not so much.

It's a waste of time to try and convert those whose minds are closed. Time is better spent on those people who truly open to alternate points of view and debate. But since talk is cheap and fast on the internet, responding to a post is more of a whim than anything.

I find it funny that engaging about a topic translates to caring for some. It's a logical fallacy to assume talking about something means you're concerned about it, by the way.

125. What a thread this is...

 

besides the amount of stupid involved in some of these replies. Jeez people chill out!

Let me see if I can throw some logic into this. Wish me luck.

What Darkangel said, I see on a daily basis on my twitter. A lot actually. People dislike Hillary, plain and simple and of course that dislike, at least among liberals, IMHO is justified. She's been marred in controversy for decades. Yes, some is RW crap but some is real too. This is what people aren't getting, the fact that everybody knows who Hillary is and they already have their minds made up if they like or dislike her and have for a very long, generally.

This makes her a weak candidate in the minds of many. She isn't attracting hardly any new voters and that can be seen in the huge gap of how many millennial voters Bernie has compared to her. Bernie is literally making people switch parties in order to caucus for him. I switched my Indy-Green affiliation in order to caucus for Bernie. On my twitter timeline, I have many who have done done the exact same thing. Republican, Green, Indy, even Libertarians and of course there are Dems.

Think about it. Hillary has a huge enthusiasm problem and a self image problem. She does. It's been written about a million times. That will never change. Ever.

I post this on a daily basis on my timeline. It says it all.

145. I haven't decided anything yet....

 

But I am in my late 40's and have voted for, campaigned for, and donated to every single Democrat in every single election, big or small, every single year I've been able to vote since I was 18.

And having my only Democratic party choice be Hillary Clinton will test me to my very core. Even if I hold my nose, there's no way she or the DNC are getting a minute of my time, a penny of my money, or even a word of my support when talk of the election comes up.

If the Democratic party wants to go down that road even further than we already have then they do so without anything more than the minimum I'm compelled to do, which is vote. And even then I can only imagine how horrible her general election campaign will be and how much further that will push me away than she already has.

225. Some people seem to be operating under a misunderstanding of the TOS, it applies NOW.

Perhaps you're not convincing enough OP.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12598967

Based on the Terms of Service, we have grounds to ban anyone who states that they do not intend to vote for the Democratic nominee in any general election. There is a popular misconception that the "Vote for Democrats" rule only applies after a nominee has been chosen, but that is not correct. The use of the term "never" is intentional in the section you quoted above.

...

Unfortunately, there are some people here who who say they won't support the nominee and actually won't. As we explained above, our feeling is that we want to give people the benefit of the doubt. But if you convince us that you actually mean it and you really aren't going to support the nominee, then we're going to treat you like you actually mean it.

I thought I had made up my mind on who I will vote for in the primary but I have to admit I haven't. I am happy we have three strong candidates, all of whom are electable. The other party can't come up with one out of the 17 or so they started with.

230. Fundamental values

The OP has said that w/he won't compromise his/her "fundamental values".

Personally, I have a pretty long list of fundamental values. They include:

Gender equality
Sexual orientation equality
Racial equality
Freedom of speech and religion
Right to vote
Reduction of corporate influence in elections
Avoidance of military intervention
Protection of the environment/addressing climate change.
Support for increasing the minimum wage.
Support for unions

That's not an exclusive list, but it covers a fair amount of the territory for me.

I support Bernie because I think he's the best candidate on those "fundamental" issues.

But if Bernie doesn't get the nomination, I will support and urge others to support Clinton.

Because I won't compromise my fundamental values by not doing everything I can to ensure that a Republican, who presents an existential threat to each of those values, doesn't get elected.

Frankly, anyone who says they won't compromise their values by voting for Clinton (if a Sanders supporter) or for Sanders (if a Clinton supporter) is signaling that they will not hesitate to compromise those values by not defending them against an imminent threat.

Then there's the fact that what we say here ripples out beyond this popular website and finds its way into the public discourse during a very important primary. For this, we need every single good, strong voice we can get.
