i understand that David French or any other third party independent candidate has asymptotic-to-zero chance of winning the White House. I agree that voting for someone other than the totally unfit and terrible candidates produced by the major parties is a matter of conscience.
But assuaging my conscience is not the reason to vote for French or any other acceptable conservative independent choice. If assuaging my conscience was the sole reason for throwing my vote away, I’d simply stay home.
The reason to vote for a conservative is to punish the GOP for its whoredom and Trump for being the John. They must be punished and in a way everyone will recognize.
Trump must not simply lose but he must lose in the worst, most humiliating landslide in presidential election history. I would prefer all 50 states if possible. Swaying just 4 to 7 percent of the vote away from Trump is all it will take in many states.
The polls show that the country is begging for this to happen. The sycophants, cowards and prostitites in the GOP need to wear their scarlet letter. And future proto-despot party rapists need to be dissuaded from attempted rape.
What the GOP has wrought does not represent the will of the people. It’s at best an illusion and at worst a cult. (I favor the worst.)
I hope French (or someone) runs so I can support him and vote for him. Not for my conscience, but yes, to punish those who forced this upon us.
