Hillary Clinton will perpetuate status quo


I understand the rationale for your endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president. I agree that she is smart and experienced, yet I cannot bring myself to vote for her. Although you dismiss Senator Bernie Sanders, he is the only candidate in either party who is discussing the issues of excessive economic inequality and our just plain corrupt system of campaign finance. Clinton benefits politically and personally from wealthy backers. Until we address economic inequality and the disproportionate political influence wielded by wealthy Americans and corporations, most of our nation’s many problems will persist. Bernie Sanders may be an idealist and a long-shot candidate, but I will bet the long shot, rather than Clinton, who is a sure thing — a sure thing, that is, to perpetuate the status quo.
