Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

What happens if someone writes in "Trump" of "Hillary" down-ballot, is it counted or just wasted?

I plan to write in McMullen and will vote downballot for the other races.

My values are just too far away from Clinton's or Trump's to hold my nose and vote.

Clinton means more of the subpar status quo and likely impeachment trials. I can't support that.

Quite frankly I don't have a clue what Trump means. Maybe a new leaf, maybe the end of the republic as we know it. I strongly disagree with his trade stances. I do know that he and many of his supporters scare me. The rise of dormant antisemitism online is very troubling. I don't think he's a stable individual. I don't trust him not to try to rule like a Duterte/Chavez/Putin type. Even without their power he can still insult and hold grudges against other leaders to our detriment. I don't credibly believe that he'll be a strong Israel backer or that he'll nominate the justices he says he will. I hate the coarse language and bullying that he relies upon. As much as I've tried, I just can't support that.

I wish I was smart enough to have a clear vision as to which option was clearly worse, but I don't.

And so I feel like the protest vote is the only viable option that I have. I don't take that option lightly and hope to never have to resort to it again.

Here's hoping 2020 brings better options. May G-d continue to bless America. She's going to need it.
As many times as I hear this, I don't think I'll understand it.
If you don't care why would you comment?

You're on death row. Do you choose to be poisoned, shot to death, or abstain from choosing?

Disclaimer

In no way do I support some of Trumps behavior.

Still I think he is no worse than Bill Clinton and the main point here is a president is not a king he can not do whatever he likes. He will be surrounded with a great administration and with them he will make America great again. Clinton on the other hand, hold your nose tight.... Sorry I'm not breathing.

If one of the options has "maybe the end of the republic as we know it" and the other doesn't, the choice is clear IMHO.

So stay home. Don't pretend to be cute. Or smart. It's not cure or smart to waste time. Rather go to staples and buy gift cards.  And as pointed out above the idea of protest vote does not make sense.

That's one point that we agree on, my friend.

I would, except that I'm voting for senator and other important issues that have people with values I support.
Once I'm there I'll write in the name of a man that I can stand behind.

There are a lot of brilliant conservative minds who are taking the protest vote route this year. I'm happy to be in their company.

I literally have no idea who I am going to vote for.   
But I do believe that not voting at all is essentially placing a vote still for one of them.   In terms of Israel alone it seems to me Trump would be a better choice. My problem is at this point I literally can't bring myself to vote for a guy who speaks and acts so disgusting towards human beings.  And maybe that's wrong. I do believe that even with those qualities he may benefit the country but ...   at this point I just can't see myself voting for him. The problem is that basically means a vote for her....

No clue what I'm going to do.

Crazy election.   There are always pros and cons to each candidate but this is ridiculous.


Ultimately I never really get too worked up in the elections or politics at any given time. I try to vote for who I believe will be best and the rest is in Gds hands.

My kids are also hearing pro-Trump nonsense at school. It's alarming how uniformly the frum community has backed this wacko. We have a major collective cheshbon hanefesh to make.

Nu, vote for McCain. Or William Henry Harrison.
