Look I’m not saying don’t vote this election, and I’m not saying that Hillary Clinton is The Worst Person Ever. What I’m saying is that people don’t seem to realize that many of the polices that she supports are the exact opposite of what a lot of people on this site say that they want.
Like people will reblog posts about how horrible the mass incarceration of people of color in the United States is, but are supporting someone who played a major role implementing the policies that made that happen.
People will reblog posts about how the way that big companies treat their workers is awful and unacceptable, but are supporting someone who was on the WalMart board of directors for almost a decade and did nothing to help their workers.
People will reblog posts about how every single person deserves to have enough money to survive, but are supporting someone who pushed hard for one of the biggest cuts in aid to poor people in US history.
People will reblog posts about how the US needs to decrease its military spending and stop invading other countries, but are supporting one of the most vocal backers of the US invasion of Iraq.
And of course, vote for her if you think that she’s the best choice out of a series of bad options. Just please understand what she actually believes in, and realize how incredibly, unbelievably terrible those options are.
