You can approach this from a practical stand point or a philosophical one.
From a philosophical stand point, I can understand why a voter would not cast their ballot for Clinton. If you spend that many decades living in the
public eye and in public service, you're bound to have a collection of scandals and dirt. Principled people, in a normal election cycle, can look at
that and come to the conclusion that it eclipses any level of comfort to offer their support. So you move onto the other candidates. If you're being
objective in these principles, I don't see how Trump doesn't immediately get excluded as well but to each their own. And that leaves you third party
candidates. Gary Johnson, sure.
But in the two-party system, shifting now to a practical discussion, by voting third party you're going to either have your head three feet deep in
the sand or recognize that you are likely throwing away your vote. If you opt to vote third party on principle and be willing to live with the
result, that too I can respect. But as is the case in any presidential election, possibly more than ever this go-round, that's a tall order to
I signed up for this site almost 11 years ago when Bush was President. And I always thought, how could the country elect someone so unpresidential to
the highest office. So it seems only fitting that all these years later, a candidate exists that is off the charts.
In terms of presidential, Bush is closer to Obama than Trump is to Bush. That's saying something.
Reason(s) to vote for Clinton:
1. She's not Trump.
2. Refer to #1
