58. I do not care for Hillary...

...at all. I despise much of what she stands for. I have disliked her for a long time and if she wins our nomination, I will consider myself politically homeless. As a lifelong Democrat, that's hard to say.

She represents, to me--the devolution of politics in America--as the corporations have taken control of our democracy because politicians like Hillary have sold out. I don't like her warmongering either.

I cringed when she saber rattled for war with Iran when Bush was President. And Hillary--more than anyone--know better. Because when her husband was President, the neocons wrote him a letter. They asked him for war with Iraq. He refused. Then Bush becomes President and the same bastards who asked her husband for an Iraq war were back again, this time using the terror of 9/11 to get their war in Iraq.

Hillary knew better than anyone that those neocon scumbags who penned the letter to her husband in 1996, had been salivating for this war for years. Among those who signed the 1996 letter were Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, John Bolton and others who were now in the Bush Administration. And she voted for it.

She could have stood on the Senate floor with that 1996 letter and renounced the war and the neocons as bloodthirsty con artists. But she didn't.

Hillary's biggest contributors are Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Citibank.

If she is our nominee, I will just assume that we are screwed as a party. These are firmly held beliefs based on years of being plugged into politics and paying attention.

I don't appreciate the shush-ing of those who want us to just fall in line with a corporate sellout war-cheerleader. What she stands for when it comes to fracking, the Keystone pipeline, reigning in the big banks and more war--aren't even Democratic principles! Don't accuse those who point out her obvious and sad policy stances--of ruining her or destroying her. Her behavior and her positions have done that for her.
