And on the big stuff, Larry Correia – apparently until recently a rock-ribbed republican – agrees with me.
Personally, I’ll still vote, but for the republican candidates downstream. For president, Unicorn Cavalry all the way. I hated John McCain, but I still voted for him because he was pro big government, but still nominally a republican. I thought Romney was a decent man, but a squishy moderate, who sucked on key issues, but I held my nose and voted for him. Trump, lacking in all decency, dignity, intellect, and being a populist demagogue completely without principles is over my line. Can’t do it. Don’t want that stain on my soul.
And I would hope – not for the sake of the election which has always been FUBAR no matter what happened, but for the sake of knowing there are still people of principle alive on the continent – that he is not alone.
I’m not going to vote, of course, but then I never vote. It’s not indifference, it’s contempt.
A couple of minor caveats…
Well, we’re boned.
Only if you buy the bullshit, Larry. There are other paths. But more importantly…
Big question is does [Trump] suck enough to take the GOP with him?
No, that is not the big question. That is not even a question at this point. The much abused repub voters need to stop worrying about the future health of the party and start talking about the best strategy for tearing the sumbitch down and salting the earth around it. Sheesh, it’s like watching people refuse to deal with their Stockholm Syndrome. Get over it! The GOP was never that into you anyway. Build something else if you must, or forget politics and go do something else. But don’t keep letting the Government Party use you like a tetherball. Really – it’s sad to watch.
