Also, I'd like to know the name of the church he's planning on starting so I can be sure never to step foot in it. How you going to go preaching "thou shalt not steal" when you just robbed a professional football organization of $10M?
What I give @Titans279, folks like @WG53 and the like (since remember Hilldog would not have been my ideal candidate either) is that it sucks to have to swallow your values and vote for not only someone you do not really believe in but also feel undermined those you do believe in. Not addressing the validity of that, just that it is a hard thing to swallow. Like John Holmes hard.
So yes on one hand do absolutely feel you should always vote for the candidate most closely aligned with your political and personal beliefs, even when they don't really align at all. So if I had maybe Stalin vs Genghis Khan, I'm going with Genghis maybe for the reason he let the people he conquered keep their cultures including their religions. (No girlfriend influence here I promise). If Gandhi was on the ballot, well then I'm picking him. But he's not, so....
On the other hand in an entirely different expansive topic, this all gets back to how friggin wrong our limited 2 party system is. Bernie should have had the opportunity to run all the way as a Socialist. Win or not let his supporters voice be heard and examined rather than corralled into Box A or B. Though I wouldn't copy them exactly, some of the Euro multiparty alignment systems where you vote your party which determines national representation would be nice. If you are 10% of the country's beliefs and can never win, you still deserve to have 1 person sitting on that 10 person committee. I might never vote directly Green Party but I want a Green Party member on the environmental committee in Congress if they meet the threshold for overall values of the nation.
I get the Bernie types ultimately want to break this 2 party mess we're in so we can become more. I also recognize that by not voting for someone like Hillary you enable your own worst nightmare, eventually trying to justify your decision in some serious mental gymnastics. Sometimes they are just windmills. Sancho knew.
Thought it was worth noting that my friend is out of our house. Since that trip to the hospital, she straightened herself out. Cut out the alcohol. Weekly therapist calls. Daily exercise. Dieting. She started volunteering at different organizations in the city helping folks out. And she got herself a sweet deal on a rent controlled apartment in Manhattan, and has moved out.
Not the drama that makes for great internet reading but a nice ending to that chapter.
