I just had this conversation with my wife.
I've been watching the 2nd Presidential Debate, and she reached over to pause it and say "so... if you were voting, who would you vote for?" (I'm
Here's my thinking.
Hillary is a basket-case of deplorable. I could not, in good conscience, vote for her. She's evil. She's manipulative. She represents everything
that is wrong with not just the US political system, but politicians more broadly. Corruption, lying, perjury, bloodshed, even possibly murder?
She's pure evil.
Trump, while being similarly deplorable (he is not a good man), has not wielded the political power that Hillary has. He is not singularly
responsible for the deaths and/or suffering of millions (which Hillary is: see "ISIS", "Haiti", "Benghazi"). However, he has shown no indication that
he will make a good president. Every argument that comes out of his mouth is vague; lacking in detail and specificity. ...and he's going to solve
the problems the US faces? No thanks.
So here I stand.
I could not, in good conscience, vote for either candidate.
That leaves me with the party platform, OR a third-party candidate (which is really just a wasted vote).
With that in mind, I would vote for Donald Trump, because I align better with the Republican platform (minus the love of guns. Seriously, I just
don't understand Americans' obssession with guns) than the Democrat platform.
I suspect Donald Trump would be a hamstrung, ineffectual president.
My great fear is that Hillary, if she is successful, will be a VERY effectual president... and that, in a very, very bad way.
Either way, I think the US is screwed.
