Firstly, the headline is misleading. I am not voting for Trump. To do such a thing would require absolute desperation. Since I don’t live in America I am not desperate. What I am doing as a Progressive is not voting for Clinton.
I will explain. It is simple. America is sick. And not just sick, America is dying. Slowly but surely. It may be terminal? I’m not a Doctor!
How do I know this? I have lived most of my adult life in Europe where Democratic Socialism is about as Conservative as it gets. The thought of not supplying your citizens with total health care, affording your children free education or fixing your infrastructure is something that can only happen in a 3rd world country! Or, in this case, a 2nd World Country on it’s way down.
I realize that most people are stupid. In Northern Europe at least half of the population is dumb as door-nails. And primary education here is excellent and free.
There is, however, no excuse for the stupidity of Neo-Liberals that would vote for Hillary Clinton knowing full well that even were she to win from the GOP nominee (a very unlikely occurrence considering her inability to inspire progressives and independents) she would then face a hostile Congress and at best change nothing much. An Aspirin for Cancer.
I, as a Progressive, would rather take my chances with the snake-oil miracle cure of Trump than the slow status quo death of terminal Clinton.
