    who want my vote better denounce the rampant surveillance/security/privacy violations. It is non-negotiable and any doubt about convictions will result in my vote going elsewhere. While my one vote may not concern many politicians, I know many in my age-group who feel the same. I became a strong Democratic party supporter especially because of the  abuses of the Bush administration, and refuse to be a hypocrite in my convictions.

      Hillary Clinton denounces it, I would not believe her.

      The only thing that matters is her track record up to this point.

      In campaigns, people are tempted to exaggerated their positions.  We as a community need to recognise this and discard all they say, instead focusing on the track record.

      Otherwise we risk getting another "Obama"-type as our President

      Tell me which votes by Hillary Clinton as Senator indicate that she will be good for US security and employment
