A moral quandary:

Would you accept 1 million dollars from trump if it meant he would be president for at least another 4 years?

I might would accept it, quit my job, live off the interest, but use all my time and money working my arse off to try and boot him out of office.

But, I take the chance of him plummeting us even further into fascist authoritarianism. Ugh! What to do?!

Maybe I'd just kill myself so I wouldn't have to try and make such a tough decision. Plus, on the bright side, suicide means I don't have to deal with the stress of living under this horrible regime any longer! That's gotta amount to something, right?

3. I would just say no

Money has never been so critical to me in my 60 years on this planet. there is no "moral" quandary here. But , as some one who suffers from depression,, I find your suicide statement troubling. You know how to reach me.

6. Why would it be a quandary? One either has integrity or one does not.
