Go ahead and read this article over at Counterpunch by Doug Johnson Hatlem. It's short. I'll wait.
120,000+ voters purged off the rolls in Brooklyn. Hilary Clinton hilariously claiming she won in her "home state." And obvious monkeying with the final tallies anyway - the Clinton campaign leaves nothing to chance.
On April 19, 2016, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio decided an investigation was necessary:
...de Blasio also called on the city Board of Elections to reverse a voter purge that removed voters from voting lists and announced his support for the audit to be completed this summer ahead of New York’s June 28 federal primary “so corrective action can be taken.”
“These errors today indicate that additional major reforms will be needed to the Board of Election and in the state law governing it,” he said in a statement. “We will hold the [Board of Comptroller] commissioners responsible for ensuring that the Board and its borough officers properly conduct the election process to assure that voters are not disenfranchised. The perception that numerous voters may have been disenfranchised undermines the integrity of the entire electoral process and must be fixed.”
The Board of Elections report states that "evidence demonstrates that the de Blasio team coordinated its fundraising activities" with the committees and delivered donations to them "in order to evade contribution limits and to disguise the true names of the contributors," the Times reports.
How about that.
The argument is that it's our duty to stop Cruz or Trump from going to the White House.
I think that is false. I think it's our duty to follow our conscience and vote for the person we believe in. So no, I will never flip my vote to HRC under any circumstances. And this isn't an issue of "privilege" - i.e., only wealthy people can be so cavalier as to vote their conscience. A vote for Hilary is as much a vote for Empire just as a vote for Trump or Cruz would be. What the fuck is the difference? Ask an Iraqi woman if Hilary Clinton gives a shit about her rights.
It's Bernie or bust.
