  1. Are you willing to accept the outcome as the will of the voters?

    What kind of question is that?
    …forget the question…
    What kind of answer is that?

    I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to hear from The Status Quo Candidate is that she’ll support a Trumpkin Agenda should it manage to gain control of The White House.

    It makes me think about reconsidering my vote.

    1. If you were watching, CBS, you’d have heard another reporter ask Trump that for a second time. What are they going to say? “No. I’m starting an armed revolution.”

      1. Clinton could say either that or something that at least implied some form of support for continued opposition to White Nationalism in the GOP and The White House. (What Trump says on that issue is essentially irrelevant because we know he’s lying. Show me any GOP support for anything with Obama’s name on it.)

        It just sounds too much like the cut-and-run neoliberalism that puts a Donald Trump at the door of the White House. If you can’t beat ’em? Give ’em whatever the hell they want.

        It makes me even more doubtful the Democratic Party would appreciate my support. Which makes it even harder for me to vote for The Status Quo. If that vote means nothing…if the promise of that vote cannot garner even a hint of a possibility of course correction within The Democratic Party…what good is it? What value does it have? I might as well be voting for Jerry White.

          1. Not a realistic candidacy. In any way. Purely symbolic…and it probably gives them some tax breaks down the line. Helps keep the show on the road and all that.

            Speaking of the road. White was campaigning in Canada last week. Not nice to laugh. But it’s true.

            I shouldn’t criticize. I’m sure there’s a perfectly reasonable Trotsky-fundamentalist proletarian-internationalist rationalization in there somewhere. White and his cohorts kinda set the standard for Trotsky-fundamentalist proletarian-internationalist rationalization on my side of the room. There’s a big problem with that. Don’t get me started.

            The issue is whether a vote for Clinton would be as useless as a vote for White.

            A Green or Libertarian vote might, at least, help rebuild a home for left-wing/social democratic reformism in American politics down the road. Sooner rather than later. A possible alternative economic politique to promote regulation counter to neoliberalism, abating its more insidious effects. There’s a big problem with that, too. Don’t get me started.

            I should probably just go an watch some Trump video clips or something. REcenter some resolve. Embrace the devolution. There is no alternative. Repeat three times. Rinse. Spit. Repeat three times.

    1. One of my favorite parts was when Trump white-man-splained what it’s like to be a black man in America. But yeah. This, too.
