    It is a long held American tradition to vote against a candidate.
    Hold your nose and do it!
    I wouldn't vote for Clinton if she was the only one running.

    No, she is merely better known to abuse her power.

    Trump is too wild and unpredictable to hold such a position better for Americans to wait for 4 years when the Republicans will have someone at least half decent like Jeb Bush to vote for.
    Trump MAY be a terrible president. Hillary WILL be a terrible president. I, for one, would risk the unknown for the known at this point of time. I do not like Trump, but he is not a poor a choice as Hillary. Her ambition for power and complete lack of ethics is frightening. Sadly, she is likely to be the next President, because Trump has POed too many women, and they make up 52 to 53 percent of the vote.

    I don't like Trump, but if I was asked to make an argument for him, I'd argue that Trump does have have the potential to be a good deal maker, despite his nasty rhetoric. The opposite of a Teddy Roosevelt, but similar somehow, - speak loudly but carry a moderately weighted stick maybe. Moreover, he does have, at least, the potential of reducing Corporate political power because of his non-beholdence to super-Pacs and he just might be a source of important political reform. I'd argue that he isn't a safe candidate in turbulent times, but he just might work out.

    That said, I can't stand the Mexican Wall idea, I don't like his trade policies, and his racist stands bother me, I wouldn't vote for him if I could, but that's the argument I'd make for him, if asked.

    .
    If Mrs. Clinton is true to her campaign talks she would be far to the left of her husband. She might even be to the left of the current president.

    Vote a third party.
    As long as I have been reading political debates, there have been those holier-than-thou guys that says vote third party. That is no less of a cop-out when you vote third party only to spite the two top candidates.

    Even Bernie Sanders realized that he cannot win as a third party in a Presidential election so he switched to Dem just long enough to be called a Dem.

    If Trump had run as a third party, he would not have drawn much attention either and would have been nothing more than a footnote if even that.

    Until there is a major change, and not just a couple of guys pounding their chests for being proud, no third party will ever win a Presidential election. To vote third party is to throw your vote away.

    I hear what you are saying, but all 4 of those guys were very different.

    Trump's positives-
    We bitch about the establishment all the time but we never seem to be able to do anything about it. Voting for Trump would put a fork in their eyes like nothing else could.

    Political Correctness is .... I'll let George Carlin explain it-



    Boom, there it is.
    What you are tempted to call "mean" is the sound of someone speaking his mind. Enjoy it, you won't be hearing it from anyone else in this election.


    He was the first to put a strong foot forward on illegal immigration, and he has a plan for dealing with it.

    He knows how the financial/business/economic world actually works. When was the last time we had a President that was anything besides a career Politician?
    He has had to balance the books, instead of make excuses and simply ordering all of us to pay him more money, he has had to face the penalties for failure.

    He also knows how to protect copyrights, something we need very badly. Instead of avoiding China and Putin, he will confront them to protect our inventions and products.
    Something that has been a long time coming, BTW.


    And lastly, he does not have 1,000 contributors that will need to be taken care of from the moment he walks into the Oval Office.

    How's that for starters?

    So far the reply's are why I should not vote for Clinton. That was not the question.

    Why should I vote for Trump.

    He has promised a lot of good things but has seldom said how he well accomplish all of his promises.
    Maybe, you didn't understand the answer. Think hard and long.

    Suppose you had a fed election and nobody voted?

    Reminds me a little of the election held by E. Blackadder for "A Rotten Borough". Nobody bothered to vote, and they ended up with a sausage dog called "Colin" as their representative.

    It's a no-go either way.

    Clinton is dishonest, money-grubbing, has blood on her hands and has committed multiple felonies regarding the mishandling of classified material, and done it deliberately by using her own server. She was also an incompetent secretary of state who accomplished nothing.

    Trump is a bigot, a demagogue, a mysoginist, wants torture to be US policy, wants to use nuclear weapons in the Middle East, states that he US Armed Forces will do what he tells them to, legal or not, and wants to murder civilians in the Middle East.

    That isn't a choice for president. It's a recipe for disaster. I won't, in good conscience, vote for either if they are nominated. I'll do a write in.

    Both are dishonorable, dishonest people, both of whom completely disgust me.
    Write in's don't count unless the candidate has filed paper work to be a 'write in' in your state. Just putting in a name results in a null vote, might as well leave that line blank, samething.

    Vote a third party.

    Nope not at all. Do to restrictive state laws on Parties getting on the ballot every vote for a third party helps them along for the next election.

    Until the voters get smart and quit getting conned with the "if you don't vote for our loser you'll help the other loser get in office" head fake things will never change.

    Know when to say "NO".
