I am not a troll.

I am not a Russian agent.

And to be honest, it actually hurts that I'm now being accused of just trying to get clicks because I just want the Democratic party to do better. Who are YOU, someone who doesn't even know me at all, to decide that I'm just trying to play people when you don't even have the decency to reach out to me (via EMAIL if you can't bear the thought of commenting directly on one of my articles) and actually have a discussion about where I'm coming from and why? If I didn't fucking care about this election, I would not be writing on a constant basis, expressing my views, and being subjected to this daily, constant barrage of angry, bitter people like you who cannot stand the thought that their precious democratic party might not actually have their best interests in mind.

And I'll tell you exactly who I'm voting for, by the way, since you're so concerned. I'm in New York, so I will be voting for democrats down ballot and I will most likely be leaving the presidential one blank.
