Worse Than Hillary: Why I Will Never Vote for Donald Trump

By Mark Tooley

donkey hoteyThere are several Trumpist episodes that are special warnings that he’s unsuited to be the successor of even Nixon, much less Reagan, FDR or Washington. His longtime questioning of Obama’s birth certificate, his more recent brief allusion to Justice Scalia’s possible murder, his allegation that political opponents don’t qualify for the presidency because of their parentage, and his embrace of the “Bush lied” Iraq narrative all imply either a belief in or, likelier, a willingness to exploitatively peddle poisonous and absurd conspiracy myths that are un-American and more resemble dark political discourse in the Mideast, Russia, and what once were called banana republics. His original insistence, later kind of retracted, that America should torture its enemies as punishment and murder the families of terrorists in defiance of law more ominously indicate distaste for constitutional and treaty obligations.

I’m leaning seriously toward a third-party option if Trump becomes the standard-bearer for the Republicans–which is all the more reason to vote for the only GOP candidate who can beat him: Ted Cruz.
