In this letter, I ask a question of Hillary Clinton supporters, and it basically boils down to: Why on earth would you vote for her?

Questions

Dear Hillary Clinton supporters,

Let me ask you a few questions, because as a progressive, there are things that are very perplexing to me. First, could you explain to me why you would vote for a candidate who voted for the unnecessary Iraq War, rather than for the candidate who voted against that war? Then, why would you vote for a candidate who voted to strip away our civil liberties by voting not once, but twice, for the USA Patriot Act, rather than for the candidate who voted against it, twice. And why would you vote for a candidate who called young black men "super-predators" who "need to be brought to heel," rather than for the candidate who has stood at the forefront of civil rights battles ever since he was in college? Why would you vote for a candidate who takes hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from for-profit prison companies, and not for the candidate who calls for the dismantling of for-profit prisons and the end of the school to prison pipeline? Why would you vote for a candidate who was against gay marriage before she was for it, for NAFTA before she was against it, for the Keystone XL pipeline before she was against it, and for the Trans Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement (TPP) before she was against it, rather than for the candidate whose position on these issues has been unwavering from the very beginning? Why would you vote for a candidate who gives speeches to Wall Street banks to the tune of 250,000 dollars (5,000 dollars a minute), and refuses to reveal the contents of those speeches? Why would you vote for a candidate who last week in Colorado gave an outdoor speech to Democratic Party fat cats and turned a white noise machine on so reporters nearby could not hear what she was saying? What did she not want them to hear?

I've got about fifty other questions, but you get the idea.

I would love to hear some comments in the comments section below as to how you justify your support for Ms. Clinton.

Hilary Clinton is even more powerful and dangerous than her ex husband, Bill. She is part of the system that many of us want to defeat and it explains clearly why she'd vote against a candidate that was against war in Iraq and Syria for the good rewards she would receive and, in fact, she's being pushed up by the system.

I fully agree that she is very dangerous. She's an unmitigated war hawk, for one.

Looks like many people in United States are impatient and not thinking logically as to for whom they are voting.

I share your sense of wonder, but then who are these people who are trying to change the world by voting for Trump?

For everyone's talk of change, when it comes right down to it, people want the status quo. Voices mean nothing. Pushing the voting levers does....maybe.

It seems we never really have a choice. It was a foregone conclusion before the election even began that Hillary would be our next president. While I am not a big believer in conspiracy theories I join you in being totally perplexed by our whole election process, which baffles my simple mind.

Well Steve. You know full well why I support her. As First Lady she pushed for health insurance--and won SCHIP (Health Insurance for children)--nearly twenty years before Obamacare. She made an historic speech for women's rights back in 1995 (one which brought hope to millions around the globe--and is referred to by others to this day). As Senator she got the funds necessary for the rebuilding of downtown Manhattan after September 11. She pushed for a government study of asthma sufferers in Harlem, and held hearings that eventually led to the Zadroga Act for first responders. It was not a coincidence she was overwhelmingly reelected in 2006.
She did make a terrible vote, not for the Iraq War, but for a resolution backing the President if necessary. She has apologized about it (has Donald Trump ever apologized for anything?). Bernie has rarely apologized for anything himself--not even his support for the NRA and his repeated votes against the Brady Bill.

As Secretary of State, Hillary represented America well, especially in the aftermath of W's presidency. Such experience is not negligible.

I don't expect to change a single mind. If you want a full progressive, Bernie is your man. But I want experience and results. A president is going to have to negotiate with Congress. Is Bernie, a self-described "revolutionary" who refuses to concede defeat even though he is far behind on all counts, ready to negotiate with a "corrupt" Washington establishment for the betterment of his people? I'm not sure.

L. R., we need radical change now - a new brand of politics. As Bernie says, one cannot question Hillary's experience, but one can certainly question her judgment. Witness the State Department's report just out that excoriates her for not heeding the many warnings she received about using her own private e-mail server. You are not bothered by her changing positions, pointing out that you have done the same many times. Let's see...she was for NAFTA before she was against it, for TPP before she was against it, for her husband's crime bill which she now says was a mistake, for Keystone XL and now against it. Her changing positions are obviously not the mark of any evolved consciousness, they are clearly the mark of political expediency. Hillary is always sticking her finger in the political winds to see which way they are blowing. Bernie, on the other hand, is true to his values and convictions no matter what. in the integrity sweepstakes Bernie scores a ten, while Hillary....not so much.

I appreciate your comments L.R. Thank you.

I am going to vote for Hillary because I have gone to her web page, and I agree with all of her positions. I like that she is logical in her thinking. Bernie Sanders, whom I respect greatly, seems to want to govern from a position of anger. He is a great activist, no doubt, but I don't want his revolution in government. For example, Bernie wants to break up the big banks. That is a position of anger, not logic. At this point, what purpose would that serve? He couldn't even explain how he would go about doing it. I also do not think he will fight hard enough for gun reform laws that are sorely needed. The wall street speeches don't bother me, as she Haas the right to make private speeches as a private citizen, and get paid for her knowledge and opinions. I am also not bothered by her changing of positions, because I've changed right along with her on some things. What impresses me about Clinton is her tenacity. She stood up to a highly partisan Benghazi hearing, and came out with flying colors. That is the kind of president that I want. Logical, tenacious, highly intelligent, highly qualifi

And as for the super predator remark, she has admitted it was a poor choice of words, just as Bernie Sanders has said the same thing about his rape fantasy essay in the 70s. Words from decades ago will not determine my vote.

You heard it here first Papa Kyky. Hillary will be a disaster as president and will be voted out of office after one term. I guarantee it.

Sounds like the same thing said about Obama. Disaster is a matter of perspective, unless you are talking about the 2008 economic meltdown.

This is what I don't understand.

Donald Trump is nowhere near Bernie Sanders on the issues. Let's take a look:

Bernie Sanders $15.00 minimum wage
Hillary $12.00 minimum wage
Trump: Wages are already too high

Health care:
Bernie: Medicare for all
Hillary: Build on Obamacare
Trump: Repeal Obamacare

Environment: Bernie #1 threat to the world, Ban Fracking

Hillary: Make America Renewable energy superpower

Trump: Climate change is a hoax.

Woman's choice:
Bernie and Hillary: pro choice'
Trump: pro life, punish the woman.

I could go on and on. Trump is light years away from Bernie Sanders. I fail to understand the comparison.

There is no comparison between Trump and Sanders. Trump is all about divide and conquer, while Bernie is inclusive and wants to bring us together.
