My reasons for not wanting to support Hillary are well-thought out. Please tell me if you see any fact-based reasons that I am wrong (of course you are free to disagree with me on my opinions).
- She has in the past supported war, and her foreign policy continues to be hawkish.
That's a good thing. We live in a dangerous neighborhood, and need to stand up for ourselves when the bad guys cause trouble.
- She strongly supports Israel and has said so herself. This includes her unwillingness to publicly pressure Israel's settler policy (which I find quite troubling).
Why would their settler policy be troubling? So long as the Palestinians refuse to make peace, Israel might as well use the land to their own benefit.
Support for Israel is good. They are our friends and are fellow good guys.
Sanders' position on Israel will be virtually identical to Hillary's position.
- She has already ruled out single payer health care.
What is it about the term "single payer" that makes the Left switch off their brains?
There are several ways of structuring universal health care. There is nothing special about a single payer system.
- She has come late to several areas of social justice, and tends to take moderate positions that aren't politically risky.
This one's a tad vague.
