Private Prison Lobbyists Are Raising Cash for Hillary Clinton,
I'm a left "liberal" voter, and I refuse to vote for her.
Your not the first one to suggest this. Certain people suggested long ago how to avoid this.
Voting for Correct Principle
"[In 1800,] the nation declared its will by dismissing functionaries of one principle and electing those of another in the two branches, executive and legislative, submitted to their election. Over the judiciary department, the Constitution had deprived them of their control." --Thomas Jefferson to Spencer Roane, 1819. ME 15:212
"I think the best remedy is exactly that provided by all our constitutions: to leave to the citizens the free election and separation of the aristoi from the pseudo-aristoi, of the wheat from the chaff. In general they will elect the real good and wise. In some instances wealth may corrupt and birth blind them, but not in sufficient degree to endanger the society." --Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1813. ME 13:397
"It will be forever seen that of bodies of men even elected by the people, there will always be a greater proportion aristocratic than among their constituents." Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Hawkins, 1803. ME 10:360
"In a government like ours, the standing of a man well with this portion of the public [i.e., in Washington] must weigh against a considerable difference of other qualifications." --Thomas Jefferson to William Short, 1807. ME 11:392
"If our fellow citizens, now solidly republican, will sacrifice favoritism towards men for the preservation of principle, we may hope that no divisions will again endanger a degeneracy in our government. --Thomas Jefferson to Richard M. Johnson, 1808. ME 12:10

Are home prices eroding the California dream?,
Prices too high to buy; rents too high to save • In bubble markets growth has been unsustainably high in the last year A California cooling effect could put a freeze on nationwide appreciation and a sustained housing recovery, according to an analysis of price trends by real estate valuations, data and analytics firm ClearCapital.com Inc. of Truckee.
This, and excess growth of public sector jobs, SEIU and Unions, new rules made by lawyers, difficulty in establishing business, regulations have made California Dreaming more difficult than Jose F. could have imagined.

Obozo to argue that all of our hard drives are for the gubmnts keeping,
in 2015, it is now perfectly acceptable to admit oneself a socialist - i've even seen hipsters bragging that they were socialists before it was "cool"
See all sorts of Bernie bumper stickers. Will Socialism overtake the Republic? What is Pbs (prop Bernie Sanders elected)?
Will the constitution and freedoms be overturned? How would this happen?
