Too Bad Trump Supporters, GOP, Fox: I Still Will Not Vote for Trump.

Sorry, GOP. Too bad, so sad, Trump acolytes. You don’t own me or my vote. You cannot guilt me into voting for Donald Trump.

If some of you Trumpanzees are reading this now, you may be getting ready to fling your verbal poo my way, accusing me of supporting Hillary. Your thought process — if you have one that is rational — tells you that not voting for Trump is a vote for Hillary.

That’s called a false dichotomy. I’ll speak slowly, false di-cho-to-my. It’s a logical fallacy. I have other options. And unless I directly vote for Hillary, then I’m not casting a vote for her.


I can avoid voting for either Republican or Democratic presidential candidate, and stick with voting for down-ballot Republicans. I can vote for the Libertarian candidate — interesting that their memberships applications have doubled since Trump became the nominee. I had never heard of the pro life Libertarian candidate Austin Petersen until last night, and when I tried to access his website, I couldn’t. Too much traffic, no doubt.

Wonder why?

You Trumpers foisted your rude, crude, ignorant candidate on me, a blowhard who didn’t know what the nuclear triad is, who thought the Supreme Court made laws, who wanted our military to violate Geneva Codes by killing the families of ISIS members and thought he could just order them around like some Roman emperor, and never once mentioned constitutional principles during the debates. He called his rival candidates pejoratives like “Lyin’ Ted” or “Little Marco,” ridiculed Carly Fiorina’s face, and accused Ted Cruz’s father of being in cahoots with Lee Harvey Oswald. He tweets insults like a seventh grader on meth.

And you worship him. All hail Glorious Leader Trump! Life in America will be perfect!


Then people like me who are disgusted by this whole farce are expected to just set our concerns aside and join you in your cult worship, but if not, make sure you vote for Trump because. . . Hillary!

Do you think I want to align myself with this kind of knuckle-dragging moron, who spouts conspiracy theories about Goldman-Sachs and Ted Cruz? This feces-for-brains imbecile who has nothing intelligent to say, but yells “Lyin’ Ted! Lyin’ Ted!” like some deranged cockatoo?

Nope. Not happening.

And I’m looking at you, Fox News. I’ve watched you for years, but can no longer stomach you prostituting your journalistic integrity to slobber all over Trump in fawning interviews and unlimited call-in privileges. Too bad you’re bleeding viewers to CNN.

Finally, there’s you, GOP. You weak-kneed spineless cowards are concerned only about protecting your status in government. You made only wimpish efforts to curtail the Trump train, and never supported Ted Cruz, whose policies embody your conservative platform. But Ted Cruz was a threat to your status, so here you are.

Now you expect me and all other conservatives to fall in line.

Really. I should support the most unhinged candidate the Republicans have ever put forth.

Speaking of unhinged, how many of you would trust that bombastic golem Trump with the nuclear codes? Not me, but don’t take my word for it. Charles Krauthammer, who is a psychiatrist as well as a pundit, expressed concern about Trump’s mental stability last night with Bill O’Reilly. And if a psychiatrist warns you about the finger on the nuclear button possibly being unfit for office, you should be worried.

I have a son-in-law who is a squadron weapons officer in a particular submarine class. Would I trust Trump as his commander-in-chief? Not on a bet.

No, Trumpers, and Fox News, and GOP. You all imposed this fool upon me as my presidential candidate and now you expect me to fall into lockstep and submissively vote for him. Ain’t gonna happen.

You were all warned for months about the toxicity of Trump. People and groups on social media, small blogs like ours and major conservative publications like National Review expressed their apprehensions. But you didn’t listen. The GOP was more concerned about kissing Trump’s tuchas, Fox News was hunting for the big ratings, and you Trumpers were more concerned about “tearing down the Establishment,” whatever the hell that means.

Sorry. You broke it. You own it. I will not vote for Trump, and you cannot shame me into doing so.

  • Deanna Fisher says:

    *fist bump* Well said, Kim!

  • Shawn says:

    Bravo .. You said exactly what I’m feeling. Thanks!

  • Jennifer says:

    Woot Kim!! #NeverTrump #NeverHillary

  • Whiskey Bravo says:

    Amen, and Amen.

  • Ralph Warner says:

    I hear what you’re saying, Kim, now please hear me.

    I know what Trump said, but I also know what the others said as well. FOX news constantly hammered Trump, and the GOP did their dead level best to present Trump in a bad light to get WE THE PEOPLE to vote against him and for a more mainstream in house, business as usual politician. But it didn’t work. Both Republican AND Reagan Democrats side with Trump, and that’s a good thing.

    Don’t get me wrong, I like Ted Cruz, and if Trump wasn’t in the race, I would have voted for Cruz. But I don’t think we need more business as usual politics in D.C., we need someone who can think outside the political box, and I believe that person is Trump.

    Just to let you know, I am a pro-life, pro traditional marriage, pro second amendment, Christian conservative, who did my time in the military, and served my community as a police officer. I am also a pragmatist who believes that Trump is what we need right now.

    Sadly, your opinion only serves to be divisive, insulting, and unproductive.If you want to vote for someone else, that is your cchoice. But please stop acting like a Democrat who has only insults and red herrings to contribute, but nothing of substance. It’s not becoming of what I believe is a conservative lady.

    • Kim Quade says:

      When Wlliam F. Buckley famously said that a “conservative was a person standing athwart history, yelling ‘Stop!,” he probably was told he was being divisive. He certainly could be insulting. But there are some things worth railing about, and one of those is conservatism.

      Thank you for reading, and at least calling me a lady. Some of my colleagues have gotten much worse at the laptops of the Trumpkins.

      • Scott says:

        I too believe that conservatism is worth railing about. In my considerable years an invaluable truth I have found is that one must choose one’s battles carefully. Looking at the big picture over the last 16 years conservatives have had some amazing successes at the state level in promoting the conservative message. I believe that with solid conservative majorities in the Congress and Senate that the few non-conservative views espoused by the Donald would be held in check. It is far more important that our borders be secured, our 2A be made strong and the Supreme Court remain constitutionally conservative than that the purity of one individuals conservatism be allowed to usher in what we know will be the continued destruction of our country.

        • Jodi Giddings says:

          Wholeheartedly agree, Kim. I’m happy to stand alone in defense of freedom.

        • GWB says:

          And just where is this “solid conservative” majority in each house to come from? The House is currently solidly Republican but not solidly conservative. The Senate isn’t even close. The Supreme Court is far from a Constitutional conservative majority. None of those bodies has held 0bama in check, how would they do so with The Donald?

          Populism is the spark that lights the fuse of totalitarianism. In the modern age, I can’t think of a single autocrat who simply imposed his will on a nation or state. They all began with a populist movement. All.

  • Joe Miller says:

    I take my responsibility as a voter seriously. I can’t vote for someone as transparently untrustworthy as Donald Trump. Who knows which Donald we’d get? He’s been on every conceivable side of every issue.

    I think Gary Johnson will get the nomination for the Libertarian Party. I can support him.

  • GWB says:

    While I don’t have a problem with your stance, you’re wrong (depending on your state) with saying a not-vote for Trump is not a vote for Hillary.
    Depending on your state*, your vote for a third candidate or a lack of a vote altogether reduces the margin any main candidate requires to win. If you “throw away” your vote, when you otherwise would have voted for one party’s candidate, then the opposing candidate has one fewer vote they don’t have to overcome.
    (* Admittedly, in some states, your vote doesn’t matter much anyway. If you live in MA, for example, the odds of any vote for a Republican presidential candidate making a difference is almost nil. The converse being true in deep red states.)

    Again, I won’t gainsay your strategy. There is something to be said for “protest votes”. But your vote does have consequences, including making it easier for Hillary (in this case) to win.

    I’m considering writing in Chthulu. After all, why continue voting for the lesser of two evils?
    (OK, you’ll LOVE this.)

    • Kim Quade says:

      Interesting. And yes I do live in a red state — Kansas. It was named “Bloody Kansas” in the 18th century because of the anti-slave/pro-slave bloodshed prior to the Civil War. It could still be called that because it’s deep red politically.
      That being said, I have personal friends here — two of whom are KS house reps — who are also publicly part of #NeverTrump. I think I’m in good company. Sometimes ya gotta stand on principles.
      Besides, if Trump is the Winning! (Cue Charlie Sheen) genius his minions claim he is, then they should have nothing to worry about.
      Except for Chthulu. If I remember correctly, wasn’t he some sort of Irish badass? Put him on the Trump team, he’d be the more intelligent of the two.

      • GWB says:

        If I remember correctly, wasn’t he some sort of Irish badass?

        LOL. That was Cuchulainn. Chthulu is the lord of all darkness in the H P Lovecraft horror realm. He will enslave humanity, then eat us. (If you look at Hydra in the Agents of SHIELD tv show, he’s a total ripoff of Chthulu, if a little shorter in stature.) Hence, the “why vote for the lesser evil?” meme.

        As I said, I don’t disagree necessarily with your strategy, merely the statement that your not-Trump vote or non-vote doesn’t help Hillary in some measure.

        A consideration for those who would like to have a third party: in most states a third party can’t get on the national ballot unless it’s shown some vote-getting power in lesser elections. So, even though you might be “throwing away” your vote in this particular election, a vote for a third party now might make it easier to get on the ballot next time; especially if you vote for it in a state election – it might make the national ballot in 4 years.

        • Jodi Giddings says:

          Great pop culture insight, GWB. I’m stealing your meme. 😉

          • GWB says:

            I can’t take credit for the “why vote for the lesser evil?” meme. I saw it first appear sometime during the Clinton administration, iirc. It got a lot more traction starting in 2008, along with the campaign to write in SMOD.

  • Kim Quade says:

    Lord of All Darkness — perfect Trump running mate. LOL.
    I’ll be meeting with one of my aforementioned state rep friends for coffee tomorrow and show her what you said. She’s also going to Cleveland as a delegate, so it’ll interesting to see what she says about that. I think she’s bound to Rubio on the first ballot.
