He has literally torn families apart. He has deported people by tearing mothers literally away from their children and their babies. Many of them came to this country to give their children a better life. They needed to bring their family to safety and to a better life. We are lucky to have been born here. They came here for a better life and for hope. Why should they be torn away from their family because someone with no compassion was in the white house. We all know that Hillary should be there. She has all the experience, knowledge and compassion that makes for a truly great leader.

It seems to me that if a ridiculous question can be asked than a ridiculous answer can be given. I'm not a big D democrat. I'm an anti-republican. Had Spongebob Squarepants achieved the republican nod, I would have voted for Patrick the starfish.

So in answer, no, I would not have voted for Trump. But I think you need to offer more lube before probing with that fucking question.

thanx

That plus his glaring character flaws and I'd have written in Minnie Mouse.

He wouldn't even have come close to winning the nomination if he ran as a Democrat. Their voters would have seen right through him for the empty suit that he is.

Although 99.9% of the time I vote D (much more so in the last 20 yrs or so), I'm not a 'straight ticket' voter.

As I was growing up my dad encouraged me to THINK and learn beyond what schools taught. He also drilled into my head that it is my duty as an American citizen to really observe, use my head and do my research on politicians stances and backgrounds before I pull that lever. It's because of this and knowing that history has shown us that political parties can and have changed quite a bit that, although I'm currently registered as a Democrat, I won't say that I'm absolutely a 100% big D voter.

'If' the D party were ever so idiotic that they allowed the party to go so far down into the gutter that they put up someone like Trump, I'd be forced to reconsider my options. As the D party currently has things set up, that probably won't happen, at least not in my lifetime.

A noble experiment, to be sure. And certainly contrary to everything Trump's GOP stands for.

IQ points dropped just by opening self serving posts like this because the basic premise is so flawed that the question is completely irrelevant.

If he had decided to run as a democrat his rhetoric would have matched. He would have managed to swindle a percentage of the voters on the left just like he did on the right.
I dont believe Trump has any political convictions. He just goes with whatever might benefit him.
