What reason do you have to believe that our minor parties are any less scandalous and corrupt than the Big Two?
^^This. I haven't seen a third party candidate yet that I think is worth voting for. I do think OP's analysis is right on, though. I'm not voting for
a third party candidate because I think he can't win (and there are several.) I'm not voting for a third party candidate because I think they are nut
jobs and would be worse than the Big Two.
Presidents can actually do very little near term. If they could, we'd be in much worse shape under Obama, but he's been held in check. Just ask the
Far Left what they think of what he has done. His actual policies are not much different than Bush. But Presidents can do a lot of long-term damage,
especially on the Supreme Court. Hillary would like to revoke the Second Amendment. There is no doubt her Supreme Court nominees would severely
restrict gun rights for normal Americans, and do nothing about the criminal class who won't pay attention anyway.
You can be practical or you can be philosophical. In my life when I have become philosophical it has never turned out well. In this case everything
aligns. My conscience tells me to vote Trump.
