#Trending: #WhyImNotVotingForHillary

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 12.30.23 PM

Hillary Clinton announced her presidential run yesterday, and although many cheered at the idea of a first woman president, others, don’t really care that much for her. And that’s including democrats. Clinton said her stance would be the ‘middle class’, which definitely eliminates a lot of constituents. And just because she’s a woman, doesn’t mean she has women’s best interests at heart.

And from the looks of the tweets from #WhyImNotVotingForHillary, which was started by a 19-year-old Black republican, people definitely have their reasons.

Here’s the thing, although we have those who are gung-ho about Clinton running, people don’t even know who the Democrat  will be that’s going to run against here. Until that’s known, Clinton definitely isn’t getting my vote, just yet.

    WHy I WILL vote for Hillary? Because yes I want a woman president and because I would never as long as I live vote for someone has bigoted and hateful as Rand Paul and Ted Cruze. We certainly don’t need another Bush up in there.

      So you’re not only voting primarily based on gender, you are also voting against the opposition. Not on Clinton’s track record or accomplishments?

        I registered as a democrat in 2008 to vote for Obama in the primaries so if someone says they want to vote for Hillary because she is a woman, I for one would not hate on that decision. And yeah because he was black was a major factor. Not certain if Hillary will be the nominee but if she is I plan to vote for her too. We screwed ourselves the last time after her husband left office in 2000 by entertaining Nader as a protest candidate and our country paid the price. Politicians take us for granted because we take politics, elections and the democratic process for granted. Our participation rate as voters suck, the worst amongst industrialized nations. We don’t participate and expect candidates to care. Democracy is not about voting, its also about citizen participation.

          I understand the decision to vote for Obama’s race more than voting for Hillary’s gender, only because Obama did not have several decades of a prominent legacy behind him. During the primaries most of us outside Illinois only knew him as the candidate with fresh ideas, and I actually considered Hillary until Bill chimed in with his shady remarks. After he was voted in as the Dem candidate, for me it was an equal combo of wanting a change, seeing an intelligent Black candidate in office and voting against senile McCain and his intern Palin. I guess my point is Hillary has been around for a while, so I don’t think voting for her solely because she is a woman is the same as voting for Obama because he is Black.

            Huh? So if a seasons black candidate had been around for decades and ran like Barack, the primary focus would not be his race? Don’t agree with this. Anyway, I am voting for Hillary because of her great record and career but for sure because she is a woman. 100%. No shame in admitting that no how and now way. White men are VERY confident shouting who they vote for reflects who they are. I am voting for the woman with the great track record. End of story. Go Hillary!

              “if a seasons black candidate had been around for decades and ran like Barack”

              The key word here is IF. Barack was not a seasoned candidate and we did not have his record to go on. And you are shortchanging his appeal, aside from his race he had his youth, education and intelligence that made him a superstar. If you vote for a candidate primarily based on race and gender, would you have voted for the also highly intelligent and seasoned yet war monger Condoleeza Rice if she ran on the GOP ticket?

              If Hillary does win, I hope she does more for Black America than Barack did.

                Huh? I think you and I are talking past each other. Honey, I dedicated HOURS, I mean HOURS, MONTHS to volunteering for Obama’s campaign. I knocked on doors, did voter drives, etc. I held events at my home. I gave my all because I believed in him. His being black was a huge factor but I voted for him based on his qualifications. i would never give myself that much to a candidate’s campaign if I did not believe in them. I would NEVER, let me repeat NEVER vote Republican. I believe in human rights, women’s rights, civil rights, gay rights, rights of the poor etc. NO REPUBLICAN has ever represented those issues well for me. I don’t care if it was my own family member running as a republican. I would not vote for them. Barack has done a lot for black America but everyone wants him to be the magic man who solves all their problems. Black America has some work to do that no Barack can ever solve. I volunteer to help in our communities and I can tell you we need more than depending on a politician to help us. We need to become self-sufficient, self-reliant and more active in fixing our community problem.s Talk to your kids, educate them, be present, be there. Oh I could go on and on. Barack has done a great job but the haters won’t stop picking on the man. Whatever. Go Barack! Go Hillary!

                  “Barack has done a lot for black America but everyone wants him to be the magic man who solves all their problems.”

                  What exactly has he done for Black Americans? And where did anyone state that he is should wave a magic wand over our problems and solve them? That is overly simplistic thinking that parties depend on for your loyalty. And “haters”?-lol. No hon, it’s called critical thinking. Why has Obama directly addressed the problems of almost every other marginalized group in this country–except for Black Americans? He has gone to the mat for undocumented immigrants, gay rights and one of the first bills he signed in 2009 was the great Lily Ledbetter Act. He has been a champion for everyone, EXCEPT Black folks.

                  And guess what–I volunteered for his 2012 campaign with official field organizers from his campaign–phone canvassing, traveling out of state to talk to people about his character, etc. which I have never done before. Had rednecks right here in NY state shout the n word in my ear, and we kept it moving because we believed in what we were doing. That didn’t stop me and the other Black volunteers from noticing that for that campaign, the only Black venue he visited with a high profile appearance was to show up at the Apollo in Harlem. To sing an Al Green song. Meanwhile he made appearances throughout blue collar White America, Univision, etc. And didn’t he also give the commencement speech at Morehouse where he talked down to the graduates.. He did send Michelle to talk to us though.

                  My point is many Dems have known for decades to depend on your vote, without having to actually do anything for you.

Oooh, you threw out “members of his organizational team” because you know you are the only one who might know some players in his campaign right? lol. Do you. I do me. Vote for Ted Cruze for all I care. I am organizing voting rights drives on my end, unless you want to join us, then bye. Oh btw, double arts and law degree major here honey from one of the top institutions in the country. You don’t want to come for my knowledge of politics. You really don’t. Take care and carry on.

                      Plus, you don’t need a degree to see someone hasn’t done anything for you. And my name isn’t Felicia.

You and all the other Obama haters can continue to demean this man as much as you want but it does not change the fact that he is YOUR president. I mean they have branded this man a terrorist, a traitor, a foreigner, a thug, a traitor of black people, etc etc. Honey, I have heard it all. Keep bashing him. I DON’T CARE. No you don’t need a degree to do anything but my degree could school you from here to eternity with your nonsense. I won’t do it here. Not worth it. I know you Obama haters. You like an audience. You are not getting one from me. You hate Obama and think he is useless. Fine. I DON’T BOO. I think he is EXTRAORDINARY. Bye FELICIA.

                          Yup I’m still here. And with all those degrees (snicker) you claim to have, by now you should have been able to list a few of the accomplishments you claim Obama has done for Black Americans. Yet you are still waving the flag for a man who has has the authority to sign an executive order that would enforce federal bans on police profiling and brutality, which has disproportionately affects people who look like him and his wife. And you. So far he refuses to even acknowledge the severity of this crisis, and the continued low unemployment rate of Black people in this country. Did you know he publicly chided Attorney Holder (who I have a lot of respect for) for stating the truth about how America “is a nation of cowards” regarding racism? If Obama could run for a third term, he knows there are gullible, happy negroes like you in his back pocket who won’t question his record-folks who are unable to critically think about his disparate treatment of his own people. I thought I understood in his first term why he shied away from these issues, now less than a year left in his second administration and he still has not addressed many issues affecting us. You said earlier “he has done many things for Black people”–but you still haven’t stated what those things are.

                          You can’t even list the accomplishments you claim Hillary has achieved throughout the years (she has achieved a lot in her legacy, but all you have said is I’M VOTING FOR A WOMAN WOOOO HOOOO!) Then you want to get mad when someone asks you why-lol.

                          With the monologues you have written in this thread, you should have been able to touch on at least some of the issues that have been resolved as a result of having this man in office, and why you believe Hillary would be a good president. Hell, I have even provided some of Obama’s accomplishments which is more than you are capable of. Calling folks haters, etc. without being able to refute anything I have said is not something an educated adult does, so I fully understand why you are doing it.

                          You can whine all the names you want, meanwhile you are unable to 1) dispute anything and 2) present any logical reasons why you are voting someone simply because they are a Democrat and also a woman or Black. We all know Clinton has a global, well respected prominent legacy that spans the globe, apparently that is all you know. You are certainly not obligated to prove why you are voting for anyone because this is a personal decision, but with the time you have spent responding to me with your foolishness you could have provided some intelligent discourse and not made yourself to look like a ranting simpleton who upholds the tradition of the gullible Black Democrat.

                          Not your Felicia

                            Why Felicia? I have dealt with you Obama haters for how long now? I know your tactics, I know your issues, I know what irks you about that DARK MAN, I know your hatred. You Obama haters love an audience. You love to open up the floor for a debate just so you can go on bashing that man. You don’t need me to engage you to go on your anti-Obama rants. You can do that on your own. You will have plenty of company (mostly hateful white men in the Republican party). You should band with them as you all have a lot in common in your inexplicable HATRED for this man in a way NO OTHER American president has ever been hated. You want me to sit here and list his accomplishments for you on this thread as you want me to do with Hillary? Why? So if I do not, then it means I am unable to know what their accomplishments are? NO. I know your kind. I know who you are. You won’t get my audience. Continue to bash him. Like I said, you have options., It’s American. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruze surely have your best interest at heart. Again, it’s America. Do you. I do me. Obama won TWICE. Now I am focusing on getting Hillary elected. Bye Felicia!!! #youarefelicia (in every way). Ignoring the jabs 2 my degrees. Haters gonna always hate. Obama and Michelle know you folks well. They got your number. So do we. #haters. Sincerely, PROUD DEMOCRAT BLACK WOMAN.

They are not satisfied with just having their opinion and being secure in that. NOOOO. They need US to villify HIM. They need us badly. Without us PROUD DEMOCRAT BARACK-SUPPORTING BLACK WOMEN, they have no platform to spew their venom. Go on, the stage is yours. Go didg some other insults to throw at me, us, him. Go on.

Oooh, ahhh, ohhhh, yeah, ok. I know bullies honey. That is how they operate. They get mad when people don’t agree with them so they attack. Once they don’t get an audience from their attacks they take personal jabs to see if they can get through that way. Once they don’t the continue and continue and continue. bullies need two things fundamentally: an audience and the need to believe that their tactics are based on some justification that no one else in the universe has the capacity to understand. At the end of the day, bullies need hugs. There is a guidebook out there. Code words when bullies attack black women: “STUPID” and “BLACKFACE”. Once you hear those words you know you are dealing with someone who not only is in desperate need of attention but they also need a hug because mommie forgot to give them one. Oh, sorry, I forgot: BYE AGAIN FELICIA!

                      Thank you. And I have to admit, i first read that ‘gone to the mat for others’ reference in one of your posts Anthony and it’s so appropriate. Rastaman mentioned above the importance of citizen participation and I totally agree with him. The sad thing during Obama’s campaigns so many people (myself included) felt like we were a part of the democratic process in this country for the first time in our lives. Remember those long lines with all kinds of Black people waiting in line to vote. This man has sidestepped our issues so many times; it’s such a letdown that many people feel at this point no one cares about what we are suffering so why even bother. I hate feeling like this because it’s a hopeless feeling, and would love to be proven wrong.

              No need to be ashamed either…no one badgers white men when they vote for other white men. It’s like a unwritten rule that it’s okay but some how if a woman votes for another woman it’s questioned. I voted for our president for four reasons: 1. His record 2. I agree with his views and beliefs on important issues 3. I won’t vote Republican unless they become truly inclusive (I won’t hold my breath on that one) and 4. Because he’s black and is married to a woman who represents me. I have zero shame in that.

We like people who look like us to be in power too. Go figure. Like I said before, in Hillary and Barack it is not as if we are talking about Herman Cain and Sarah Palin. Barack and Hillary are exceptionally qualified.

            I know you don’t know me and no I am not being defensive but next time just assume a grown woman on Clutch has the ability to vote for people based on what most smart people vote for people on: record & career. When I voted Obama, so many whites assumed I did JUST because he was black. Like I said, he being black was a HUGE factor but guess what, I did not vote for Herman Cain so it is about record. Hillary is about her career and record. I thought that would have been a given. Her being a woman is a HUGE factor for me. Not gonna lie about that. HUGE. I want a woman president but guess what, I would NEVER vote for Sarah Palin or any Republican woman who constantly votes against my rights as a woman. NEVER. Oh no way.

Assume we know better than what you just suggested there. I know how to read shade when I see it. However, it’s all good. We have bigger fish to fry now that it is election season than focusing on 5 words I wrote on a blog. We got work to do . Whoever you decide to vote for, get out there and get our people to the polls. Don’t worry about what I wrote above.. I am involved in voter drives. Do the same if you can. Our voter rights are being challenged. More important issue. Thanks.

                Sister, you have every God given right to vote for who you want to. No one should be guilt tripped into not voting their conscience. You have every right to show legitimate critiques on the political status quo (as it pertains to warrantless wiretapping, imperial aggression overseas, the promotion of the myth that what occurred in Ferguson is no longer endemic, and refusal to talk about white supremacy by name in public).

                So, Keep on showing the truth, keep on never backing down, and keep on being blessed.

      you don’t have to vote for any of the people you listed. there will be at least a handful of candidates on the election ballot from more than just two political parties. plus you can write-in a vote if none of them suit your needs either. we need to quit letting these two parties corner us into this petty volleyball game they got going & start exercising all of our rights.

        Independent vote is a wasted vote I don’t care what anyone says. Everyone knows that. Anyway, I am a die hard Democrat. The party speaks to all my concerns. I am happily and proudly Democrat. Go Hillary!

          good luck. i think she has an uphill battle. not just b/c of the black vote but b/c republicans been ready for her. if democrats rely too heavily on clinton being the go to candidate, they better be prepared b/c republicans have been prepping for her since ’12 when she tried to play coy even though everybody knows she only quit being s.o.s. so she could let her negative press from benghazi die down in time for her to prep for her campaign. they started campaigning against her in 6 states even before she made her announcement yesterday.

              Have you checked out Elizabeth Warren and her record? You should compare and contrast to Hillary as it relates to YOU And your values…..don’t be surprised to see similarities.

                  Who would you choose if she was? Just curious.

    I can understand the sentiment. I am tired of politicians taking us for granted, and feeling what else are we going to do but vote for them. At the same time, I sure wish someone else was offering a viable alternative. Rand Paul has said some good things about sentencing, but I have no faith that he will actually do much because he has so many ties to people who are openly racist. Furthermore, letting folks out of jail will undermining the safety net would probably just lead to homelessness and incarceration.

      He’s also a person who doesn’t approve of the civil rights bill where it concerns private businesses. He believes that government institutions should not be allowed to discriminate but the law went to far where it concerned private businesses. Private business owners have a right to service or deny anyone they chose to. Clearly, that would mean private schools, restaurants, private hospitals, movie theaters, stores etc. sorry but libertarians believe government should be so hands off its ridiculous. Any person who benefits from any passage of the civil rights bill and even considers voting for this man is just as out to lunch as he is.

    Look at what happened the last time we sat out an election. With all that’s at stake, BW especially need to think long and hard about which candidates and policies they choose to support.

    I’ve got a headache. Why don’t I just calm down and wait to see who will be on the ballot. I’m gonna need some time to figure all of this out.

      Lol…your headache hasn’t even begun in earnest. It’s just the beginning. We will soon be bombarded with super PAC adverts, endless debates, dog whistling, accusations of every -ism you can think of. During 2012, at some point, I stopped watching TV. It was just too much.
      Get ready, sista, get ready…lol.

    Voting is a personal decision among each individual. It is obvious that the big corporations fund both mainstream political parties of America. Hillary has the right to run for President and people have the right to vote for her or not. I wish there were massive alternative candidates, but the system has been controlled by the 1% for a long time. The Electoral College not the American people directly selects who is the next President. I don’t support the agenda of the Republicans (as they are too reactionary. When, some in the GOP call Jeb Bush a “moderate,” you know that the GOP is extreme).

    The Citizens United decision has increased the power of the PACs. So far, it is early, so I will wait and see what the future holds, before I vote for any Presidential candidate. At the end of the day, we need to address income inequality (as the super wealthy banks have about $1.2 trillion while the poor suffer. We have the highest transfer of wealth from the poor/middle class to the super wealthy in U.S. history), education, police brutality, foreign policy issues (we don’t want some war with Iran), etc. We have the right to be politically independent.

    I’m with you. I have to see the other democratic nominees. I can’t make a choice about who I’m voting for just yet.

    It’s been a while since people voted for candidates they liked. People will probably just vote for the lesser evil.

    “#WhyImNotVotingForHillary”

    #ElizabethWarrenYES;HillaryClintonNEVER

    The Clinton candidacy is predicated on the ability to get Super PAC financial backing of over $1 billion. She’s represents the Status Quo “laissez-faire capitalism”; whereas Elizabeth Warren who is a Progressive Politician for positive change in the political process could not get this financial support and remain true to her core constituency.

    I don’t believe Clinton will be successful in buying the Presidency.

    It’s early, but, for me, she’s STILL candidate Clinton of yesterYEAR(2008) — Extremely Unimpressive. DEMOCRATS do better, otherwise I will take my vote elsewhere.

      RIGHT ON I think Hillary will be a continuum of the status quo and in that case I can not in good conscience vote for Hillary Clinton. I will no longer vote for the lesser of two evil, I will only vote my conscience.

    We need new blood and more choices. I am disillusioned with the current political system and I honestly don’t agree with everything on the Democratic or Republican platform. A viable third party would be ideal.

    I think the Democratic Party automatically assumes that they are going to get the majority black vote. It would be something if all black democrats decided to vote independent if that was a better candidate. That would be something. I’m not sold on Hillary. I’m going to see who else is running before I make a decision.
