For awhile now I’ve admired Hillary; her stamina, her determination to play in the game, her teflon like armor. But my admiration is waning. No politician is free from making tough ethical choices in today’s business of politics and fundraising. Where heavy donors equate greedy, immoral big business and shadowy, back door handshakes. Where moral decisions are made in a compromised state of mind. I’m speaking now about Monsanto and Hillary’s affiliation with their nasty GMO’s, animal cruelty, and chemical predilections when it comes to food and farming. As a woman, did Hilary feel like she had to go to the dark side in order to play in pen? Even in 2014, it’s a different game for women, a harder and less rewarding game. But GMO’s? Surely Hillary understands how damaging genetically modified food is for us? It feels like the Clintons began something that is destroying our health.
It’s past time for a woman in office, but I’m not sure Hillary is the one to do it. She’s strong enough and experienced enough, but her values seem askew from mine. That being said however, I do feel solidarity in our sex. Would I rather vote for a woman who will open the door for countless women to come (even if she makes decisions that seem short-sighted and self-serving) or another man who blah-blah-blah-blah-blah (these males presidents are all starting to run together for me like Leonardo DiCaprio’s model girlfriends).
I understand that the sites below all have their own bias, but it’s food for thought:
