I'm going to be honest, I seriously considered Clinton after she was announced the winner, and I am still an undecided voter, but after everything that's happened, it just seems like a step backwards to vote for Clinton. Sure, the Democratic platform and her platform has changed a lot in Bernie's favor, but it's common knowledge that a platform isn't a binding agreement and they can go and do the exact opposite if they want to.
So what do I do now? Honestly, I don't know, and I doubt anyone really knows. It's still a long way to November, and a lot of other major factors have come into play.
There are two amazing 3rd Party Candidates, Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. Many people are pledging to "Write-In Bernie". Some Bernie supporters are even leaning towards Trump, but personally, that is something I can never do. And of course, some Bernie supporters are jumping on to the "I'm With Her" ship with Elizabeth Warren and President Obama.
Now, even though it seems likely at this point that Bernie will endorse Clinton, that doesn't have to mean much to me or any other Bernie supporter.
Bernie's endorsement of Clinton will make me turn my head, and I will listen if he does, but I plan to make an educated opinion, not let someone decide it for me.
Both 3rd party candidates are doing amazingly well for this early in the election, and many people are starting to realize that isn't normal.
Many people who were claiming Donald Trump is anti-establishment have now been silenced since Trump is taking big money from major donors now too.
It's just not looking good for the progressives when it comes to the two front runners.
It may seem like I'm ranting, but what else can I say? The Democrats won't let Bernie win. Clinton won't be indicted. Trump is Trump. And maybe we'll have a major 3rd party contender.
But throughout all this, I can't just quietly walk over to Hillary Clinton's team. I've heard arguments from both sides, and I'm still on the progressive side.
