My most respected colleague, my business and political partner, and my very good friend, Zachary Davidson, has also joined us at Refuse to Cooperate. He is our Co-Editor. In his first piece, he outlines very clearly why he cannot, in good conscience, vote for Hillary Clinton. His issue with her has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that she is a woman, for he plans to vote for Dr. Jill Stein. His problem with Clinton is her policy positions. He just can't do it, and I do not blame him because neither can I.
Hi, my name is Zach Davidson. This article is my first contribution to Refuse to Cooperate. I hope it is the first of many contributions to come. I have known the blog founder since we our days together at University, and am grateful for him giving me space here to state my opinion. Below, I lay out my personal case for why I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton in this election. I find Donald Trump reprehensible! I also reject the false dichotomy of the two party oligarchy that works to narrow the range of options into a space the establishment finds acceptable. I refuse to limit my point of view to the Overton Window. I prefer to throw bricks through it.
