On Why I Can't Vote For Donald (Although He May Be Our Next President, Which Wouldn't Be So Bad IMO)

Yes, I considered voting for Mr. Trump, but (ultimately) I decided to stick to my original plan of throwing my vote away by casting my ballot for the Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. You know, the dude who receives less than 1 percent of the popular vote every single time he's run previously (and zippo electoral votes). Meaning he has absolutely no chance of being elected president.

As for me not voting for Donald, there are two main reasons. A) He's a protectionist/nativist who's obviously never read a single page of Bastiat (mustn't have been on the reading-list at Wharton) and B) the fellow doesn't have the temperament to spearhead the world's largest military or to even be a respectable actor on the world's stage (and in a world that's already filled to the brim with clowns like Merkel, Cameron, Netanyahu, Putin, etc., that's saying quite a bit).

Although he is smart enough to suggest that we should be letting Putin take the lead in Syria. When your enemies are slaughtering each other, I say let them. Not that Mrs. Clinton's all that appreciably better, mind you, but, yeah, if you held a gun to my head, I probably have to pick her. For the comedy factor, I'm saying. Because she's going to be arrested shortly, then tried, convicted and sent to prison. For having her own/private email server and sending classified info via that system.

Although, if the Democratic primary voters select someone (before the voting in November) who is convicted of felonies... well, it should be a cakewalk for the Republican nominee to secure the presidency in such a situation. So we might very well end up with a president Donald J. Trump. And, if you held a gun to my head a 2nd time? I might say that sending Donald to the White House wouldn't be that terrible an outcome.
