Why I cannot and will not vote for Trump I said over a year ago that I thought that Trump was a Trojan horse to make sure that Hilary was elected and I still think that today. Trump is the perfect caricature of the lefts view of the right. Old check White check Bigot check Misogynistic check Stupid check Corrupt Rich Business man check Evil Check Trump with his bigoted views on anyone not white, his treatment of women, his 4th grade level speaking abilities, advocating for torture, making his money at the expense of others in business is everything the left could ever dream up for their perfect foil to take down. He is the left’s perfect straw man of conservatism and I will have none of it. I will show that Trump is no conservative, and his authoritarian views should cause everyone to worry. The problem with voting for the lesser of two evils is that you’re still voting for evil. And in this election there is no lesser of two evils. And if I absolutely had to pick the lesser, it would not be Trump because of his supporters. 1. His rhetoric a. i. Punch the crap out of protesters America cannot be considered a great nation if we are willing to drop down to the level of violence toward dissenters. What makes America Great is that any idea is allowed to be expressed as long as it is done in a peaceful way. Anyone running for president should expect people to protest them, and they should not call for their supporters to punch protesters. That is not what America is, nor is it what I want America to become. b. i. Take their coats and throw them out in the cold Now I will admit that my political views allow for private venues to remove people from their premises. But to steal property from them is not allowed under any view of the Bill of Rights. Trump has no right to take any ones coat, or anything else from them just because they disagree with him. The whole idea of taking someone’s coat and throwing them out in the cold reeks of dictatorial authority c. i. Megan Kelly Blood coming out of her eyes I would not take this kind of language from a 7 year old child, and I won’t take that kind of misogynistic language from someone expecting me to hire them. There are many more occasions of him acting no better than a 7 year old with his regard for his fellow men, from mocking McCain for being a POW to making fun of a reporter with a disability. I will accept none of this from a person asking me for a job. d. i. Pure leftist rhetoric about Bush, showing his left wing heritage. Now I won’t even get into the fact that it is a lie that Trump was always against the Iraq war, but for him to repeat the idea that “Bush Lied People died” reveals his true left leaning ideals. No one running for president with an R after their name has any business repeating anything from extreme left wing Code Pink. Trump has been a democrat his whole life and with the use of leftist language he reveals that he is still a democrat at heart. e. i. I could shoot someone and not lose voter For someone to have such a problem with Clinton being above the law, he certainly takes great pride in the fact that he knows he is above the law with his followers. The devotion of his followers is one of the things that scare me about a Trump presidency because he would be coming in with a lot more political capital to spend than Clinton will. He is running as demigod here and bragging about his above the law status with his supporters, making him much more dangerous in any position of power. Clinton at least pretends she is not above the law, but Trump is giving himself a mandate to be above the law with statements like this. f. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fewNMnY9L5Y i. Would fund planned parenthood, uses liberal code word Women’s health issues Again we see his true left leanings by using the code word for abortion and talking about how he would fund Planned Parenthood. This is also a candidate that praised the “wonderful work” of Planned Parenthood. This is a business that makes it money killing babies and Trump said they did wonderful things. No one that is pro-life would ever say anything nice about PP. 2. His Policy a. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPJfKdp3bDs i. Transcript of entire interview from above http://www.forbes.com/sites/theapot...he-governments-gonna-pay-for-it/#3370596a3862 ii. The government will pay for healthcare, universal health care, admits that it is un-republican position. He is showing his statist ideals here by saying that healthcare is something that the federal government is responsible for and is actually advocating for universal healthcare, with the government paying for it. That has been the lefts dream for decades and here we have the GOP candidate running on universal health care. If we thought that ObamaCare was bad, with its duel private and public options, just imagine how bad it would be with single payer. It will be the VA everywhere. Also there is no difference here between Trumps and Clintons position. b. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3LszO-YLa8 i. Says he will target terrorist families and expects the military to commit war crimes This is just appalling on so many levels to me. What has always made America Great is that we try to stand above the fray. (Now I realize that could be debated on some things in our past but we as America has always held to the ideals of holding the moral high ground) We don’t drop down to the level of our enemies. Going after the families of enemies is wrong, it is also cowardly. It is not a show of strength it is a show of weakness to go after women and children instead of armed combatants. And here we have another example of Trump bragging about being above the law in the eyes of his followers, in this case the military. If our military is willing to break all rules of combat that have been in place for centuries, than we would have no assurance that they would not turn on their fellow countrymen if ordered to by their Commander in Chief. People that are worried about the 2nd amendment should be very worried if the military did actually follow through on orders to commit war crimes commanded by the president because the next president could use that military against fellow citizens. Remember any powers that are expanded under one president pass onto the next president. Even worse is the fact that I had a Trump supporter who claims to be a Christian says that this policy is the most Christian out of any of the Republicans that ran. He mocks anyone that has a problem with the murder of women and children and who view it as a war crime. As I have said for a while now it is the Trump Supporter that worries me more than anything Trump says. c. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I1eXRXL0nkk i. You have to take out their family 1:40 mark Again we see Trump advocating for war crimes here. We don’t go after families. That’s like moral high ground 101, and Trump is failing it. There is a reason why the villain in every movie goes after the family of the hero, because that is what makes him the villain, going after the weak, instead of the strong. d. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=106&v=Kpj3pp10wD8 i. Water boarding it not enough we must use torture Now I will be honest I don’t have any problem with water boarding. But Trump is actually advocating for real torture here, which again would bring us down to the same level as our enemies. That is not making America Great that is dragging America down to the lowest levels in the world. e. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihjgYj5tNYk i. Print more money This is just insane, and shows how Trump doesn’t understand how the economy works. Printing more money would just result in hyperinflation, and if you want to know how that works out just look at the Weimar Republic of Germany circa 1920s. In just 1 year a loaf of bread went from 123 Marks to 200Billion Marks. Inflating away a debt never works, and if Trump had any economic sense he would know that. And a little bit of context to his saying we should print more money, he said that after he was cornered for saying that the US should renegotiate its debt and pay back pennies on the dollar, and then he said there is no reason to default when you can print your own money. f. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9PCPtcsgnc i. Open up Libel laws This is an absolute attack on the 1st amendment. Again one of the things that make America Great is that we can openly saying things against our leaders without fear of consequences. I can say that I think Obama is the worst president in history and not worry that police will come knocking on my door in the middle of the night to take me to some “re education camp” and yet here we have Trump openly calling for steps to prevent people from criticizing him. Imagine how that could be expanded upon with future presidents. Especially given that Trump can build upon Obama’s use of the IRS to attack his critics. Do I think the press is biased, absolutely. But I think they also have a right to be biased in whatever direction they want. The press has always been biased and America has survived it for 200+ years. Also I find it Ironic that Trump is attacking the very king makers that put him in this position with their billions and billions of dollars of free air time.
