I am neither a registered Democrat nor a registered Republican. In my 40 years of voting, I have pulled the lever for candidates of both parties. As a government official, I have always been silent about my preference for president. No longer.

That certainly tells me that We, the People's, privacy will be infringed on even more than it now is. Of course, that will include Freedom of Speech, freedom to peacefully protest, etc. Thanx Carrie.

People who have accepted the lies about Hillary Clinton won't ever accept the truth. No use trying.

Will we ever know what's truth and what's just fabrication ? I don't think so as the government is a law unto it's self. Hilary is the best of the bunch certainly better than Trump. That's for sure.

I've already endorsed a different candidate and will do what I can to help her win the election. Educate yourselves, folks. The political revolution continues with Plan B.

Well, he wrote a nice article supporting the candidate he's voting for in a two-party system. But, I'm with Donna G. above and plan on my vote being a "protest vote" of the two major parties. I'm an "issues voter" not swayed by threats and superficial platitudes. 'Plan A' hasn't worked for me so far.....ever. So, I'm also sticking with Plan B.

The Establishment loves Hillary, they can count on continued endless war, Cronyism, Police State.

With Trump they fear the unknown, they do not know if they can control him.

With 3rd parties they fear real change, they fear losing their power, their control over the people, they fear an educated voters, they fear the people taking back our country.

Real change will not come from continuing to vote for the lesser evil.

Are you sure Trump is the dangerous one that needs to be kept out of the White House?
"Why the CIA is for Hillary Clinton"

"Morell was a top official throughout the period of CIA kidnappings (renditions) of victims who were then held in secret prisons and tortured. He helped lead the CIA when it was carrying out drone missile assassinations and other forms of covert state terrorism. Throughout his tenure in Langley, Virginia, the CIA was engaged in war crimes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria and many other countries.

After Morell left the agency, Obama appointed him to the President’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies, which prepared a whitewash of National Security Agency spying following the revelations by Edward Snowden. He then moved seamlessly to a position as a well-paid media commentator for CBS News, while joining the campaign of former CIA officials to block the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture.

That such an individual comes out publicly in support of Hillary Clinton says a great deal about the nature of the Democratic presidential campaign and the type of administration Clinton will head in the event that she wins the November election.

Morell’s op-ed column appears under the headline: “I Ran the CIA. Now I’m Endorsing Hillary Clinton.” As far as the New York Times is concerned, support for Clinton from an organization that is identified around the world with torture and murder should be shouted from the rooftops. It is something to be proud of, a positive credential for the Democratic presidential nominee.

The former CIA official declares Clinton “highly qualified to be commander in chief,” praises “her belief that America is an exceptional nation that must lead in the world,” and notes that in the internal discussions over US intervention in the Syrian civil war, “she was a strong proponent of a more aggressive approach.”"

"If Trump is suddenly branded as a monster who must be kept out of the White House, it is only because the US financial aristocracy and the military-intelligence apparatus have a different monster in mind, one they consider more dependable: Hillary Clinton. She’s the monster who is on message—on Ukraine, Russia, NATO and the anti-Chinese “pivot to Asia.” She knows which generals to salute and which billionaires to flatter. She’s a “safe pair of hands,” which means she can be relied on to kill the right people."

"Unless Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have it all wrong.

Be My guest- Vote for Donald Trump. "

Yes Bernie & Warren have a lot of things wrong mostly when it comes to economics which oddly is what they claim to be their main focus.

Who said anything about voting for Trump? I support Peace & Liberty. Therefore neither Trump or Hillary will get my vote. Nor will Jill Stein unless she embraces Liberty.

The CIA has done a lot of horrible stuff in the middle east. Its no surprise that they would endorse crooked war mongering Shillery.
