If Larry Correia agrees with me, that only proves I’m right.

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.

    None of the above, nobody in 2016 and forever more… For me and anyone else who thinks that way. Others can choose whichever sick squishy or sadistic master they want, of course. All that is really needed is that they leave the rest of us alone.

    All true . . . but in the meantime, we’re boned!

    Sorry. Not looking forward to the next four (eight?) years.

    An aid to McCain says he’s voting for Hillary!

    Yep this election you guys down south have on your hands does indeed look like the no win scenario. While I normally vote and encourage others to do so the choices are so bad that I couldn’t cast a ballot even wearing a Scott breathing apparatus it stinks so. Good luck and while I have said it before I will say it again, have a plan B.

  6. Judy says:

    MJR – This country has always had a Plan B it’s what Thomas Jefferson said about sometimes revolution is a necessary thing. Not something any thinking person would want but…

  7. MamaLiberty says:

    The problem with most (all?) revolutions and civil wars is that the “winner” simply moves into the power structure and kicks out (or eliminates) all of the previous power holders. Once the “new boss” is firmly in place, he/she/it tends to look and act very much like the “old boss.” What’s really needed is for each individual to become that “new boss,” not giving power over themselves and their property to anyone else.

    No idea whatsoever how to get that to happen. 🙁 But there are NO “right people” to hold that power for us instead.

    “It’s not indifference, it’s contempt.” Yup. For an exposition at length, search: “Doug Casey’s Top Five Reasons Not to Vote”. A short excerpt:
    “. . .third reason for not voting. That would be because it’s a degrading experience. The reason I say that is because registering to vote, and voting itself, usually involves taking productive time out of your day to go stand around in lines in government offices. You have to fill out forms and deal with petty bureaucrats. I know I can find much more enjoyable and productive things to do with my time, and I’m sure anyone reading this can as well.”

    What MamaLiberty said, + ^ +.

    To anyone interested in a vivisection in detail of the ludicrous delusion that the Republican Party has (or ever had) anything to do with limited government, free markets, etc. I recommend:

  9. Joat says:

    MamaLiberty, I would argue that the new boss, isn’t like the old boss, the new boss is always worse than the old one.

  10. MamaLiberty says:

    All the more reason not to “elect” anyone. 🙂

  11. coloradohermit says:

    I’d vote if NONE OF THE ABOVE was on the ballot. When our ballots arrive in the mail, I’ll look it over, and may vote for local issues and offices, but just can’t, in good conscience, vote for any of the nationals currently in the show. Same circus, different monkeys.

    Joat says:”MamaLiberty, I would argue that the new boss, isn’t like the old boss, the new boss is always worse than the old one.”

    Ding-Ding-Ding! Yes! Very few who advocate for revolution have really thought about the end game. (Excepting, of course, he who expects to become the new boss.)

  13. “I never vote. It’s not indifference, it’s contempt.”

    Now there’s a workplace banner worth making.

    Trump’s biggest asset is that all the right people hate him. Major players from both parties, the media, etc. They hate him because they fear him. He has lived in their inner circles and heard all the nasty things they say in private. He knows where the bodies are buried. He took on their carefully rigged system and beat the hell out of it.
    Do you really believe that a bunch of elitist asshats spouting self-righteous BS about how pure of heart they are so they can’t support their own party’s nominee is going to impress anybody but each other? Remember how this same pack of jackals demanded a loyalty oath from Trump? And how they in turn pledged to support whoever won the nomination? Of course they thought they had a surefire strategy to keep Trump from getting to 1237 delegates and forcing a contested convention where they could control who was chosen. Trump kicked their butts and now this no honor, lying pack of corruptocrats will work to get Hillary anointed Queen rather than keep their word

    This the anger that Trump taps into. Yeah, people are pissed about the economy, foreign affairs, etc. The real, gut wrenching anger is against the lying, back-stabbing garbage in Congress that treat the people with condescension and open contempt. It is anger that is well deserved and was brought on by their own selves.

  15. Ben says:

    Anger. I’ve done some pretty stupid things in anger, and usually ended up being sorry for them. I’m not near angry enough to put Mussolini in the White House, because even I can see how that could bite me in the ass a thousand different ways. YMMV

To the stake with the heretic!
