An important message from our Immediate Past Chair

The other night I sat next to a woman who said she was voting for libertarian Gary Johnson.  She claimed to have been a Bernie supporter who just doesn’t “trust” our candidate, Hillary Clinton.  When pressed to explain what nefarious thing Hillary is going to do when she gets elected (e.g., steal gold bullion from Ft. Knox) she can’t respond.  What she and others don’t realize is that they will be responsible for helping Donald Trump get elected.  The simple reality is that this is a binary choice election.  Taking any vote away from Hillary Clinton is giving a vote to the most misogynistic, racist, homophobic, candidate we’ve ever seen in modern history.  This article by Paul Krugman makes the case more eloquently than I can.   Please, please, please…if you care about your children and grandchildren…please, please, please read it.
