I can't stand Republican Joe Walsh.
I doubt that I need to relist all the reasons why in this esteemed group.
You know who he is, you know he's a jerk.
You know his political views.
And yet, like a broken clock, this is one of the times he is spot on:

Quote:
"Lots of politicians stink, and people hold their noses and vote for them, anyway. But if you've already gone on record as a never-Trumper, and now you're saying that you'll vote for Trump because you don't like the alternative, you're not holding your nose, you're inhaling deeply."


I'm no fan of Sanders but I'll campaign for him if need be.
Because #NeverTrump means never Trump.

...right up until the end, there, you were on it.

But for those of us who rejected the "oh it's a binary choice" balderdash in 2016; nothing has changed regarding that question. Neither party "owns" my vote, and nor do I have to vote for Sanders (or anyone else, for that matter) not to vote for Trump.

You just leave that top line blank, CP, and I'll believe you have done your part for the Never Trump Movement.

Just because I wouldn't vote for Biden or Bloomberg doesn't mean I would vote for Trump instead.

I have voted Libertarian for years because I didn't leave the Republican Party, the Republican Party left me. The way I see it, I will vote for a Democrat for president for the first time in my life. If the Democrats nominate a ham sandwich, it will have my vote. I can always squabble with them on issues later. I strongly believe that having a crooked kook running the country, who wipes his ass with the Constitution, is a dangerous and terrible idea.

Not showing up is a vote of its own. As we saw in 2016.

Last time I voted for McMullen. This time I'm sure I'll end up voting for someone equally inconsequential.
