hillary clinton did not win the nomination.
for those of us that did not make obama our first choice, there is certainly disappointment that our candidate did not win. the primaries have been over for weeks. let’s move on shall we? this is a majority rule country- like it or not. the election system is broken- like it or not. to say that you will vote for mccain because you don’t like obama- that is the stupidest thing i have ever heard of in this election season. believe me- i have heard quite a few.
if you are a clinton supporter and intend to vote for mccain because you ‘don’t like obama as a person’ because ‘he doesn’t understand’ and blah, blah, blah- please don’t call yourself a feminist because you are the furthest thing from. please don’t call yourself an activist because a vote for mccain is a vote against democracy. like what you have seen for the last 8 years? then by all means- vote mccain out of spite. the bush admin has been working steadily over the last 8 years- in conjunction with the christian right- to take away women’s rights and women’s reproductive rights. so, please, vote mccain. healthcare and education for your children is important to you? mccain intends to keep right on keepin’ on where bushco left off- so by all means cast your vote in that direction.
you so called ‘feminists and activists’ are the reason that women have such a difficult time in a man’s world. there is no looking at the bigger picture and there is no compromise- it’s your way or you throw a big fit and become spiteful. apparently, you don’t realize that there is a third party candidate running for president named cynthia mckinney. a strong african american woman running on the green party ticket.
no, of course you wouldn’t know that- you are too busy planning your revenge- being spiteful- you can’t see the forest through the trees.
