73. I recognize that H. Clinton supports woman's rights and LGBT rights, but

 

all Democratic candidates would support those core values. But currently the wealth inequality gap is widening. Big money, big banks, Goldman-Sachs, are in business to gain profits at any expense they can. If we cant turn that around, the 99% will all be paupers within a decade. Our next president must be dedicated to saving the middle and lower classes of this country and I have no confidence that H. Clinton will be interested. She belongs to the corporatist wing of the party. Ending wars and cutting back on our defense budget will be a big part of saving the middle and lower classes. There is no indication she will be willing to do that. How about reigning in the NSA/CIA Deep State? Patriot Act? Domestic Spying? She supports trade agreements that move jobs overseas and endangers our environment laws. And fracking that is destroying our environment and drinking water. She supports fracking.

Yes H.Clinton agrees with progressive on some social issues but that's where it ends.

And maybe most importantly, she has demonstrated that in a pinch she will go to the dark side and support Republicons in their worst hour.
