So it’s about to be crunch time, and we’d like to open with a quote from LC and IB Socklessjoe in this most excellent post that deserves to be read in its entirety:
Donald Trump is a despicable human being. He’s not a conservative. His policies, to the extent that they have any consistency, stand no chance making America great again. I would not trust him alone in a room with any woman I cared about.
And yet, I am voting for Trump. Simply put, a Hillary Clinton presidency would signify the end of the republic as we know it.
Now, we can’t say that we share the visceral hatred and disdain for Trump, but we certainly can say that he never was our first choice.
And we can also say for sure that we share Socklessjoe’s conclusion.
Those are the two choices we have. It’s going to be one of the two, no matter what, there is no door number three. Egg McMuffin isn’t it, Jill Commiestein and that clueless “libertarian” whose name keeps eluding us isn’t either. Stop deluding yourselves.
That being said, it is certainly your right to vote for any of them, we don’t dispute that, and we won’t hate you in the morning for doing so. It’s a personal choice, and only you get to make it. Just don’t delude yourselves about the stakes here. Please. We beg you.
As Sockless describes in great detail in his post (again, please read it), we’re at a fork in the road. If Felonia v. Pantsuit wins, the Republic is no more. Sure, the United States will still be around, but it will no more be a Republic than Rome was one under Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus and thereafter.
As we have witnessed in example after example over the past eight years, the United States under the ProgNazi party is not a nation of laws. Well, it is, sort of. Two sets of them. One for us Dirt People and one for the Cloud People in the Imperial Capital, Washington DC. Giving the horrid monster that is Hillary! four more years to solidify this will end the Republic, and it will take quite a bit more than a ballot box to restore it. Just ask the Romans who tried to bring the Republic back through the centuries after Augustus’ rise to power how well that turned out for them.
Will Trump be able to turn that around? We, honestly, doubt it. But we’d rather take a peaceful shot at redemption than surrender to the absolute certainty of tyranny that will be the end result of letting the ProgNazis rule another four years.
Those are the stakes.
Tiberius Gracchus or Caligula.
But, most of all, pick something. Because if you sit this one out on Tuesday, then not only are you like to find this Emperor’s caligae so far up your arse that you’ll be able to clip our toenails with your teeth, you’ll also have forfeited any right to piss and moan about the results, no matter what they may turn out to be.
