Sen. Elizabeth Warren is going around claiming Hillary’s a hero,
basing it largely on Donald Trump’s recent statement that Hillary’s a “nasty woman.”
Before you leap on board with Hillary on this point, you should ask a few questions.
First: Is “nasty woman” necessarily a remark on all womankind, or might it have just been about Hillary Clinton? Trump spent plenty of time addressing Hillary’s views on policy. Trump is deeply flawed as a candidate (and certainly as a person), but it would be unfair to say he never addressed Hillary’s policy decisions (such as her support of the vile Iraq War, NAFTA, etc.).
Second of all, isn’t it possible to oppose both Hillary and Trump? That is my position, and how bad Trump is will not sway me to support Clinton. Or should I say the Henry-Kissinger loving, Iraq War supporting, corporation cradling Hillary Clinton? And now, by this point, both Elizabeth Warren and even Bernie Sanders have been tainted further by supporting Hillary.
It is time to stop putting our hopes in any such people. It’s time to reorganize independently of governments, corporations and money. We’ve seen what happens (or does not happen) when people cling to the status quo. In fact, let me be bold and say this: Any election someone can’t win without money is a goddamn rigged election. Get it? If you don’t, I doubt I can ever explain it to you.
Now, obviously you can still vote, but your little vote actually won’t make a huge difference either way (as I’ve already written before). What makes a bigger difference is what you do outside of this dumb election.
