White privileged voting

Thom makes a strong case that voting from one’s white, privileged conscience will elect those who will cause many to suffer who are not in that class, which is most of American these days. So ok, vote to assuage your conscience but realize that in effect you’re voting to turn back Obamacare, reduce or eliminate social programs including welfare and food stamps, building a Wall on the Mexican border, keeping Muslims out of America, getting more Republicans on the Supreme Corp that will rule to further curb voting rights and enable big corporations. The list goes on and on. If one is truly progressive and wants to enact progressive programs, giving the election to Trump and the GOP defeats all of those programs for many years to come.
