Trump says he wants to hit speakers at the DNC who criticized him. He calls his opponent "the devil". He labels illegal immigrant families as criminals, rapists, and murderers. He does the same with Islam, alienating good Americans simply because of their religion. Rather than take the high road, he insults a Gold Star family. He does not take the high road. It is simply not in his nature.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder is not just a label to toss around. He obviously suffers from this disorder. His mind is tormented with this disorder and it shows almost daily. He lashes out, and makes irrational suggestions like supporting war crimes or banning Muslims. He can't speak without masturbating his ego to his audience. These are all huge red flags.

He has very real temperament problems that inhibit his judgment, and cause even members of his own party to routinely denounce his rhetoric. I say again, his own party commonly denounces the man they nominated to lead them.... Even after months of warning the country against such a thing.

That ego, that anger, that habitually offensive nature... It's very difficult for people of principle, even people in his own party, to endorse a man like that.

I just hope, at the end of the day, when it comes time to vote, people take that responsibility seriously, and vote their conscience, not their anger... and that they think about EVERYONE in the United States, and not only themselves.

I'll be voting for Hillary because immigration reform and a path to citizenship is more humane than mass deportation and more in character with the ideals of America, than building walls. I'll vote Hillary because she believes in reaching out to our Muslim friends and allies rather than banning them. I'll vote Hillary because she hasn't openly endorsed war crimes while her opponent has. I'll vote Hillary because she already has established ability to communicate calmly with those who disagree with her, rather than engage in petty twitter wars. I'll vote Hillary because her campaign and the DNC awakened real unity and hope and positive energy in the hearts of people, versus Trump's RNC that inspired anger, divisiveness and fear. I'll vote Hillary because she has championed for those who struggle, while Trump has only championed himself.

My conscience will be clear.

I am voting my conscience, is why I'm voting "third" party and against the one party system.

I've decided I'm done pretending they're actually two different parties. They are both used by the same people to benefit themselves. It's all a matter which party's image benefits them best for the policies they want to pass at the time.

Puppylove, I respect that decision, just as I've respected many of your positions, even when I've disagreed with them.

Soon the "but...Hillary" crowd will arrive to derail your thread.

I have never voted FOR anyone. I always vote AGAINST the fascist.

I just wanna come out clean!

This will be the downfall of the U.S. It will be what Germany, France and Sweden have become.

Muslim terrorist playgrounds.

Don't give in to fear and don't reject your Muslim friends.

If you can honestly say you like Hillary, after all she has done, after all the lies, nothing I say will make a difference. Hillary will follow the same policies that we've had for the last 8 years. That should be enough, all by itself, to vote Trump.
You say "Vote your conscience"...well.. feelings and making them more important than facts, has put us where we are.
Illegals are illegals. Period. Liberals want to cherry pick what laws to follow, I don't work that way. That a 5 time convicted felon was released back in to society, then killing a young woman, is typical of the bleeding hearts, who put those feelings above the safety of the American people. That they let in unvetted Syrians or anyone else for that matter, again, puts those precious feelings above all else.
ISIS is dangerous. Obama was stupid enough to call them the JV team. And now Hillary wants us to empathize with them.
Vote your intelligence, not your feelings.

Are "hoping for change"?

You think things will actually improve?

You think Hillary is telling the truth?

I've switched from voting for Johnson to now: I'm with Jill, the other Her.

When I first read the title , I thought "how unique" . A member starting a level headed neutral post on voting
WRONG.

What I found was just another Hate-Trump , Pro- Hillary thread
The title is VERY MISLEADING.

You forgot to end it with , unless the anger is directed toward Trump

Nope. Definitely vote your anger.

The time for conscience is over.

We've tried conscience time and time again for decades. Look where it has gotten us. Nowhere.

It's two people arguing over which slot machine is the best one in the casino!

Regardless, the House always wins.

So in reality, it doesn't matter who gets in.

I just can't stand Hillary. She's an arrogant, elitist, liar.

I agree vote your intelligence. I also completely understand your reservations about Hillary. Sometimes, we hear about Presidents or Military leaders forced to make tough decisions. Choosing who lives and who dies. It's a heavy burden. I believe the people are faced with a heavy burden in this vote. Like, you said, vote your intelligence, not your feelings... That's my plan as well.

Isn't this just the same thread that you posted earlier that got shut down, with just a different title

Ever wonder how the "wrong person" for the good of the people always seems to get elected?

The other side uses their vote as a WEAPON, not an approval. They cast their vote to whomever it take to STOP the person you do not want to see in office. Takes some thought and careful ear to the rail to know how to make this work. But it is far more powerful tactic than straight voting. 1+1=3.

My conscious tells me that at one time...there would be no need to choose between two bad candidates..that at one time..we would never have let them get this far up the ladder in the presidential campaign ..that tells me there is something severely broken in this world..something that needs to be fixed..and it also tells me that the two parties that chose these people as candidates are part of the problem..why else would they select such poor representatives? Was there no one else who would be a better representation of what a president is supposed to be? And if not..what does that say about these parties..that these two candidates were the best pick of the litter?


Voting third party..because I can't in good conscious pick the lesser of two evils..when there may be a viable third option..just doesn't make sense.

Thanks,

No, don't vote from anger. Vote your conscience. I spelled out my reasons for why I'll be voting for who I'm voting for. I respect you have different opinion. This is not a Hate-Trump thread. He's a pretty controversial character even in his own party. I gave specific reasons why he's not my choice.

You have a voice in this. This is intended to be open to all views. So rather than hating on the thread, just present your own opinion, and your own conscience or whatever you want to share.
