NeverTrump, NeverHillary


Or “Neither.”  Or “None of the above.”

Why on earth would I want to cast my one precious vote for a person who is in the middle of a court case?

Donald Trump will be called to testify in November about the horrible scam that he called “Trump University.” Bad.

But at least he’s not being indicted for possible racketeering.

I know that I’m supposed to “Vote Blue No Matter Who!”   I understand the desire to defeat the dangerous bombastic narcissist of the GOP.

But I can NOT vote for a woman who is facing possible indictment for money laundering.

I can’t vote for someone who broke all of the rules of online security while she was entrusted with the most important and fragile of our nation’s secrets. I don’t believe that she did it for “convenience” or because she wasn’t smart enough or sophisticated enough to handle two different phones. Please. And we’re supposed to trust her with the nuclear codes?

The right to vote is precious. Many women struggled and were beaten and went to jail to make sure that I could cast my vote. I don’t take that lightly.

The responsibility to vote thoughtfully weighs on my mind. The future that I help to craft, in my tiny way, will be Ellie’s future.

I will NOT throw my vote away on someone I believe to be corrupt and self-serving. I will NOT vote for someone who is being investigated for breaking the law.

NeverHillary, NeverTrump

Birds of a feather.

  1. This is my youngest’s first opportunity to vote.. and she gets to choose between these two…or choose not to vote at all. I’m completely mortified.

    • Please remind her that there ARE other choices! If she is more conservative, she should look at the Libertarian Party. They chose two really capable, respectable guys for the ticket. And if she likes Bernie, have her look at Jill Stein of the Green Party. She is my go-to. We do NOT Have to choose a crazy, lying felon.

      • She is definitely a libertarian..as are many of the younger kids. They are fiscally conservative but socially completely agnostic..as in they mind their own business- frankly, I’m pretty much at that point as well. I mean the truth is none of these other candidates have a chance this cycle, but I guess it’s better than not voting at all….no, I KNOW it’s better than not voting at all.

  2. I don’t envy your lack of choice. We have an election coming up soon in Australia, and our candidates are pretty lacklustre, too, but, I gotta say, yours trump ours (pardon the pun).
