I Cast My Vote

  1. A very sober and well thought out analysis of your vote.

    One would not expect it from the man who "Rock the non vote" many years ago.

  2. I do not like Clinton much either and I do not follow the election very closely so I may have missed it, but is there really evidence that she is guilty of 'inciting her supporters to bully anyone supporting Trump, sometimes violently assaulting Trump voters, sometimes destroying their property, and sometimes trying to deny them their livelihoods.'?

    1. Yes. Trump is being depicted as the next Hitler. Therefore his supporters are Nazis. And certainly it would be fine to beat up Nazis to stop them from taking over!

    3. That article points to this one:

      http://www.breitbart.com/2016-presidential-race/2016/09/09/hillary-clintons-47-percent-moment-calls-trump-supporters-racist-sexist-homophobic-xenophobic-islamaphobic/

      Clinton does call half of Trump supporters 'racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic'.

      I would agree this could be interpreted as potentially inflammatory - but it would be stretch to say this constitutes 'inciting her supporters to bully anyone supporting Trump, sometimes violently assaulting Trump voters, sometimes destroying their property, and sometimes trying to deny them their livelihoods.'

      Has Clinton said this? Would this be fine? I do not believe it would be fine.
