I won’t link to any stories or posts about Democratic foreknowledge of America’s renewed dedication to torture. You know where to find them. The fact that the leadership of the party is committed to establishing a secret, extrajudicial, international gulag in which to indefinitely detain prisoners and torture them to extract mostly false confessions is indicative that the party itself is committed to such principles, and that those “good Dems” routinely pimped by Atrios and Kos and the rest of the gang of internet enablers are mere feckless outsiders without power, influence, or significance. To cast a vote for any Democrat at the national level is to cast a vote directly for the torture of other human beings. It is not acquiescence or acceptance; it’s endorsement. If you call yourself a Democrat, you’re a torturer. If you vote for Hillary Clinton, you’re a torturer. There you go. Simple as that. This is not a complex moral equation. There were members of the Nazi party who did not personally approve of the elimination of European Jewry through genocide. There were members of the Soviet Communist Party that did not personally approve of the purges and the gulags. But they signed their names.
I can’t say I disagree with what he’s saying. Instead, I will say, my choice be damned, that I will be voting for whomever becomes the Democratic nominee for President. It may be no better than the lesser of two evils, but there is, in my opinion, quite a gulf between those two evils. Right or wrong, with the choice(s) before me, that is my plan of action.by
