"Peter" has some thoughts on integrity. Recent disclosures from leaked DNC emails reveal a clandestine program to torpedo the Bernie Sanders campaign. It was done to assist and give advantage to the most corrupt and dishonest person ever to seek the office of POTUS, Hillary Clinton. Sanders had been correctly describing her as bought and paid for by Wall Street, in addition to her other corrupt practices and felony crimes involving compromising national security and soliciting bribes from Muslim countries.
Now Clinton has selected Tim Kaine as her VP candidate, a senator already in the pocket of Wall Street. Why would the DNC compromise the integrity of their party and their process by choosing to celebrate such a corrupt marriage? Obviously, integrity is not important to the DNC, whereas politics is all-important. Honesty and integrity bow to politics among the members of the Democratic party.
Why would Bernie Sanders choose to endorse Clinton, knowing full well of her corruption and dishonesty? Why would he also endorse Kaine for VP, knowing he is in Wall Street’s pocket? He is a hypocrite who has sold out his integrity for political considerations. The young, enthusiastic Sanders supporters have learned a valuable life lesson about politics in general and the DNC in particular. They must be very disappointed!
A cynical, braggadocio billionaire with the political manners of a goat must seem to the Sanders supporters a completely unacceptable choice for POTUS. But Trump is a far better choice than Clinton. They must be convinced to change their support to Trump and to be as enthusiastic as they were for Sanders. Hopefully logic and reason will rule their thoughts. But we need to help them along by welcoming them into our conversations and showing them the human side of conservatives.
If integrity still means anything to these young, naïve former Sanders supporters, they will come around. If it doesn’t, then we don’t want them anyway.
