I'm 28 years old and in my lifetime I've had a rich capitalist millionaire on the ballot in 6 of 8 elections with the exception of Dole and McCain since 1988. I myself was born a few weeks after Bush defeated Dukakis. There's the 9/11 debacle, two wars in the Middle East by two Bushes, a rigged election in 2000 (if it's not rigged don't destroy the ballots) a president-elect who is instilling Linda ****ing McMahon (aka wife of Vince McMahon of WWE who is Trump's best friend) as head of Small Business Administration and Rex Tillerson (the CEO of Exxon Mobil who is buddy-buddy with Putin) as Secretary of State in the midst of the allegations that Russia may or may not have had a hand in winning the election for said president election.
Why should I overlook this and ever vote Republican?
Now listen, I'm down for guns, God, strong military, limited government and an intense sense of patriotism that just makes you want to scream MERICA!!!!!!! as much as the next American but this is beyond all my comprehension.
Call me misguided. Call me stupid. Tell me to **** off and bury myself I don't care. At this point I see no point to ever support the party that most closely matches my ideals.
Can ANY of you maybe convince me otherwise?
I hate to tell you, but the democratic party is the same. The same things happened under Obama. The first thing that comes to mind is the corruption with the FDA. Earlier this year Obama appointed Robert Califf as the head of FDA. He's a former big pharma lobbyist and has been called the ultimate big pharma insider. The head before that was Margaret Hamburg who is now being charged under a federal lawsuit for conspiracy, racketeering & colluding to conceal deadly drug dangers.
