A 29-year-old female data processor wrote: “As horrific as Donald Trump is, and he is a horrible, racist, misogynist idiot, I don’t think Hillary Clinton is any better. I feel like with Trump, he could at least inspire a revolution, even if it is against him. I prefer chaos to stagnation.”Does that sum things up -- "I prefer chaos to stagnation?" Never mind examining what chaos might mean in all its particularity: Fuck 'em all!
The survey segment is minuscule and the likelihood small, perhaps, but I am glad someone addressed the possibility of seeing Donald in Bernie and vice-versa. A thousand things may separate them and yet their alleged outsider status joins them, however imperfectly.
In the clusterfuck of this political season, when issues evaporate into a miasma of heart-felt angst and anger, why not consider the possibility?
And to think that "principle" was once a usable word.
