I wish to most seriously ask a question. This question is directed to anyone who might see this, who voted for Jill Stein or some other candidate, or didn't vote at all, because Hillary and Trump were just the same. Please, I beg you, tell us all how you came to that decision and how you feel about it today. And while you are answering, please ask yourselves these questions too:
Would Hillary have ordered our military to prepare for war?
Would Hillary have threatened to go to war against Mexico and Iran?
Would Hillary have called up the heads of two allied countries (at least) and berated and threatened them?
Would Hillary have threatened to pull out of NATO?
Would Hillary have loosened sanctions on Russia spies?
Would Hillary have been willing to sign a bill allowing brokers to cheat their clients?
Would Hillary be willing to sign a bill allowing corporations to bribe foreign governments?
Would Hillary conduct secret conversations with Vladimir Putin?
Would Hillary have ended all government investigation of violent right wing groups in the United States?
Would Hillary end the law banning churches from political activity?
Would Hillary have killed a measure to allow the government to negotiate pharmaceutical prices, substituting a big tax cut and less regulations instead?
Would Hillary put a neo-Nazi agent on the National Security Council?
Would Hillary have made Presidential decisions based on her own personal profit motive?
Would Hillary steal medical care from 20 million people, to enrich insurance executives?
Well, I'd like to hear your comments, people who were just too smart, and too moral and too upright to pull the lever for Hillary. I won't be waiting that enthusiastically, because I bet that 99% of you are just going to hide your shame and wait for a couple of years to pretend that what happened on election day was all someone else's fault, the way your predecessors who voted for Nader did, and that you did the right thing by throwing your vote away and refusing to accept your share of responsibility for the country's welfare. But it would be interesting to hear you try to justify your behavior today.
