  1. I know no one who thinks Clinton is as bad as Trump. And I know only a sparse handful of folks who will vote for her. As for me, I don’t vote for people who seem to actually enjoy killing other human beings. Let’s start with her love affair with capital punishment and then go down this list, compliments of David Sanson:

    She says President Obama was wrong not to launch missile strikes on Syria in 2013.
    She pushed hard for the overthrow of Qadaffi in 2011.
    She supported the coup government in Honduras in 2009.
    She has backed escalation and prolongation of war in Afghanistan.
    She voted for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
    She skillfully promoted the White House justification for the war on Iraq.
    She does not hesitate to back the use of drones for targeted killing.
    She has consistently backed the military initiatives of Israel.
    She was not ashamed to laugh at the killing of Qadaffi.
    She has not hesitated to warn that she could obliterate Iran.
    She is not afraid to antagonize Russia.
    She helped facilitate a military coup in Ukraine.
    She has the financial support of the arms makers and many of their foreign customers.
    She waived restrictions at the State Department on selling weapons to Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Qatar, all states wise enough to donate to the Clinton Foundation.
    She supported President Bill Clinton’s wars and the power of the president to make war without Congress.
    She has advocated for arming fighters in Syria.
    She supported a surge in Iraq even before President Bush did.

    I will not vote for this killer.

    1. Billbox,

      A vote for Hillary is not vindication if her every action. It is merely the responsible action for any American who thinks she would be a better president than Trump.

  2. In regards to your article about voting for Hillary, what about voting third party in a state where your vote won’t count anyways? For example Texas. It’s gonna go Trump regardless. So, why not send a message that both parties are undesirable due to their nominees.

  3. Nice article Paul. She certainly seems more qualified than Trump. Seems like you are asking people to set aside philosophical differences and vote for her.
    I disagree. I would encourage everyone to vote for the person who philosophically you align with. You must not vote for the person. People always disappoint. It is the ideas and philosophy of the person you must chose between. The difficult part is determining what philosophy they each align with as they each pander for votes. You seem emotionally against Trump the person(which is easy to understand).

    1. “Voting for the person” is what we did in high school. Voting for principles is what we do as adults. Trump will shred the constitution. Goodbye individual liberties and freedoms. Read between the lines. You think you will keep your gun? Not if your neighbor accuses you of being an undesirable Muslim sympathizer. Vote policies, vote principles, DON”T vote for Becky in the 12th grade because she said hello to you more nicely than Janie did.

      1. Carolin, you can’t falsify a quote. Mike never said “Voting for the person”, in fact, he said the opposite, “you must not vote for the person.” He did say, vote based on philosophical similarities. Principle, as you state should be the basis for voting, is the most accurate synonym of philosophy. It looks as if you accidentally misread is comment about Pual’s article. I understand, people make mistakes. I apologize when I make mistakes.

  4. Wow, that’s great we definitely need another sycophantic liar, murderer in the white house. Last time they took how much home?

  5. Since you invited. I cannot in good conscience support a Hillary WH, though I agree with her on most issues.

    Reasons:

    1. She does not support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Evidenced by her open and blatant attacks on the second amendment.

    2. She is morally and ethically corrupt. Evidenced by her hypocritical stance on wealth, banks, and trade. She claims to fight for the poor worker, which may be true. I want her to fight for the American poor workers.

    Also, though the jury is out: DNC emails.

    So, it may be time to make that third party happen.

  6. Who are you, and what gives you the right to tell me that a vote for Johnson is a wasted vote. No, vote is wasted.
    It is my right, which I have earned with 9 years of military service to this country, to vote what I believe in. I believe Clinton cannot be trusted and she is a liar. I believe Trump is a clown and could not run this country.
    I believe in the message that Gare Johnson speaks.
    My vote will count because I will have done the right thing and voted for the person I believe in.

  7. Jeez Paul, you pretty much proved to everyone that you’re an idiot. I know it’s been said before but it’s worth repeating. You sir are a simpleton.
