Trump? Cruz? Rubio?

I think that we could use some perspective.

By picking candidates for which there is little or no nose holding required.

15. OK, however,

 

saying that a vote can be wasted adds some kind of peripheral value to it that can be interpreted in many ways. Here's another, that's not wasting it, it is being cast (or not cast) in TRumps favor.

And it's not going to matter who keeps their noses and who doesn't.

21. How does that work?

 

I won't vote for a republican or a moderate.

0-0 = 0

I always vote.

0 + 1 = 1

Trump or Hillary won't get my vote because I won't waste it on them.

Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost. John Quincy Adams

There is no "spite" involved. I just don't want Trump or Hillary to be president because I think neither of them are fit to hold public office.

Be positive about your candidate and don't be "all in".

I will say it again for the hundredth time, I will gladly vote for Bernie because ........Trump? Do you feel like that in any way?

Discouraging people from voting for the Democratic candidate is a bad idea, irrespective of who it is.

Hillary is corrupt, Trump is even more corrupt, and I'll be forced to vote for the lesser of two evils.

Not a pleasant scenario for me. My disappointment with the rightward lurch of the Democratic Party only adds to the unpleasantness.

42. My drum beat is to promote your candidate,

 

and not to discourage others from voting for the Democratic nominee in the fall by trashing the person that you do not prefer.

It is not over, but 4 more months of some of the stuff I am seeing here will definitely not help keep a crazy pube from the highest office in the land.

This is, after all, the DEMOCRATIC Underground.
