I am ready to make nice.

I admit, I was one of Hillary's main critics in the primaries. She has her flaws, No one is perfect. But I am so ready to be with her campaign. We can not afford to let a rethuglican in our highest office.

Hillary Clinton is one tough cookie and I admire that in her. She recently had a bout with pneumonia and she tried to forge on. She took a few days off and came back out with dignity and pounced on the issues. She personifies an empowered woman and I like that.

I will continue to push the agenda in a progressive way and I will support progressive candidates. And I will continue to support Hillary Clinton as she heads toward the highest office in the land. She has my vote, my full support and I will sing her praises in the next few weeks as we head to victory!

3. Having Hillary lose to tRump helps no-one except tRump and Teapublicans...

I am joyfully voting for Hillary and encouraging everyone else to do the same.

We at least get to keep Bernie in the Senate where he will help to give Hillary a Congress that will work for us.

4. At this point it's a rescue mission to save the country from Trump.

This is a bad year for a protest vote. Romney isn't the opponent, a total nutjob is the opponent. We can't let Trump win.

6. everyone who thinks they are democrats, liberal, progressives MUST come out and support Hillary

 

the 3rd party nonsense must end....how could any stein or johnson voter allow a trump to have a possibility to win is beyond horror....and is a disgraced to america

hillary has faults as all people do but trumps issues are HUGE and his supporters are the worse of the worse


glad you have seen the light

20. Trump is a neo-nazi, Pence is a teabagger fundie.

The choices in this election are as clear as they've ever been, how or why anyone could stay home or vote third party boils down to some combination of cluelessness, spite and (let's face it) white privilege.

Hillary is a dependable and predictable mainstream center-left Dem like any other, like Obama, Biden, Kerry etc, who would advance similar policies - yet gets painted as somehow "scary" and "untrustworthy" by some on the left, as well as many millennials and others who have bought into 24 years of anti-Hillary (and anti-Clinton) hysteria and sexist framing.

Wake up people. SCOTUS is at stake. The next president will definitely appoint one or more justices, that'll likely affect the balance of power on the court for a generation.

7. It will all change

Trumps birtherism comments and fake press conference yesterday has fired up Dems, on the fence people and the media. Many protest voters will begin to change their minds knowing he is too dangerous to be elected. The polls will move back towards Hillary over the next 7 days. All Hillary supporters need to seize this opportunity.

21. Birtherism is the cut above Trump's eye

and Dems/H would be wise to keep punching it all the way to election day. There is no downside to it and it helps to re-assemble the Obama coalition, and if she is able to do this, game over.

Teflon Don may be immune to most things (including his 2nd Amendment comments against Hillary) but he is not immune to this, and he knows it.

This is because Trump can't win a media faceoff with Obama. While the media loves Trump for ratings, it loves Obama more, and can't afford to offend the Obama coalition which is a far younger, diverse and more desired (profitable) demographic, and the future of America, whereas Trump represents the final gasps of a bygone era.

8. I read a post on FB

from a man who admitted that "standing up" and refusing to vote for Humphrey (because McCarthy did not get the nomination) and thus "helping" elect Nixon was one of the BIGGEST REGRETS OF HIS LIFE.

If you want to vote for third party candidate, you need to be active in a plan for the next election....in four years, but it is TOO LATE AND TOO IMPORTANT for this one.

Your "integrity" could endanger us all.

Thank you Lunabell for saying this.

10. I often said I didn't particularly LIKE her but I've warmed up to her now.

 

Part of my lag may have been my inherent male-centered viewpoint and not taking into account all the things she's been through in politics for the past 30 years.

She's no Obama (could there ever be another?), but she will do us proud, I have no doubt.

11. Given that the courts are at stake

and policy issues...we should all support Hillary Clinton. But their is a more pressing reason. Donald Trump is the most dangerous candidate of my lifetime-perhaps anyone's lifetime. He literally could bring about nuclear war. He has said, "if we have nukes why can't we use them?" Also, his has totalitarian, fascist instincts. Donald Trump is the sort who runs once and stays for life. I know comparisons to HItler might seem overblown...but I don't think so.

12. Bernie had my support until

it was mathematically impossible for him to win, but i always knew that i would support hillary if she was the nominee. a friend at work, like you, walked up to my desk just yesterday and finally said, "I'm with her."

We're going to canvas together when it gets a bit cooler here in NC. i think we can turn the state blue.

13. Oh and thanks for the post

Some of my daughter's friends (she supported Sen. Sanders in the primary) have said basically that they can vote for Stein because of course Hillary will win . Well we live in Ohio which is always in play. So my daughter is involved in a YSU campus effort to help elect Hillary. They have been registering young voters and warning about the dire consequences for the country should Trump win. Both my daughters are working to help elect Hillary and are using social media to reach out to young voters. I am very proud of my girls. I am a usually healthy woman who just had a health scare..ended up in the hospital for four days, but I am out now and feeling better. I will rejoin the effort on Monday with renewed vigor. Boy one day, you are going along normally and then some health knocks you flat on your back...so much empathy for Hillary she is older than me and just kept going through her illness! I still think it is very likely Hillary will win but, we must fight really hard to make sure the Trump and his deplorables are kicked to the curb in a massive loss so their white supremacist movement is crushed once and for all. Thanks for the post...very nice.

23. Could you clarify. I don't understand your salient point

As the UK has just gone though the biggest vote in the last 40 years I have some inight re MSM manipulation of the masses driven by RW loonies.

It was the lack of positive stores and reaching to the hearts and minds of everyday people regarding what was in the best interests of the UK that lost the remain vote

Every day communities were othered. Political parties have been fractured. Racist attacks have increased dramatically. RW crypto facism is on the rise in the UK. Reacting to posts I think have inspiring stories is not BS. I am sorry you think so and I find the comment bullying. I am hoping you don't go down the same route as us. Pulling together will help you

24. I wasn't responding to you: "Response to Post removed (Reply #15)"

Based on your comment I can only assume that you missed viewed who I was responding to, and my response to that person, who is identified as "Post removed now", NOT YOU. It was a well deserved removal since it was a blatant TOS violation, which is why the post was removed.

26. No problem, that is what I assumed. We are on the same side, and definitely have the

same concerns

You can't always rely on the vertical lines, the "response to ________" is the one.

Believe me, I have made that mistake myself more than once

Take care

Thanks, Lunabell.
But I'll keep all the Bernie stickers on my truck probably for a very long time.

One reason is its old and I think that's all that's keeping it together. Lol.

29. Everything we have won since Hoover is at stake!!

The entire New Deal, the Civil Rights era gains, ACA--ALL of it is GONE if Trumpolini become the next president. To give the GOPee total control of ALL THREE branches of the government is something we CANNOT allow to happen, folks!! Get out there and work your butts off for Hillary as if your life depends on it--because IT DOES!!!
