14. Here's the thing

(kinda addressing a few things here)

Until George W. Bush, I was a Socialist voter. Never voted for Bill Clinton, for instance. I realized we had a system that didn't allow for support my political views, but I didn't care.

Know when I changed? When that disgusting, Rotting. piece. of. shit. Bush actually got the nomination Not when he stole the election or the wars I already knew he'd start-- I knew a thing or two about him see.

After that it was democrat in everything but local elections and it's still about 99%---we actually have a socialist on the city council now--

I'm going to vote for the Democratic nominee. As of now, if she choices to run, I prefer Clinton. I understand her voting record isn't stellar. I also understand she's done a lot of good, and has the experience and political connections to be a game changer in American politics. I'm not going to argue about her here.

I will never, ever stay home, or waste my vote by writing in "Micky Mouse" or any of that bullshit. The horror of realizing that a creature like Bush got even close to being considered as a presidential candidate will never leave me. I'm no nationalist, but America has the potential to stop exporting American values and try for finding human commonality and cooperative problem solving. That's part of what I'm looking for in a world leader.
