By threatening that judge hearing the lawsuit against Trump “University”, Donald Trump helped me decide whether I can support him in the presidential race: I cannot.
I’m forced to choose between the lesser of two evils. In one corner, we have Hillary Clinton. She’s plenty evil, and belongs in jail rather than the White House. If Hillary is elected, the Supreme Court will be liberal for the next thirty years. The Hildebeast will doubtless continue Obama’s executive amnesty, which will be upheld by whichever ultra-liberal extremist she appoints to SCOTUS. Hillary will raise taxes, increase regulations, and otherwise attempt to “fundamentally transform” America into a Third-World country. While she’s doing all that, Bill Clinton will rape a few more women.
But America has survived FDR, LBJ, and Obama. Liberal presidents can only do so much damage before their policies create a backlash and are rolled back. America will survive a Hillary Clinton presidency.
Now consider Trump.
I wasn’t born in America. I chose to come here and make it my home. I did not do so merely because America is prosperous; if that were the sole criterion, a highly-educated immigrant like me would have found a more welcoming home in Canada, Australia, or New Zealand. No, I came to America because America is different in fundamental ways: It is the only country in the world where the government cannot ban books (yet), it is a nation of laws, not men, and its constitution restrains its government, not its citizens.
Donald Trump would destroy all of that single-handedly, and turn America into a Third-World country.
For starters, Trump would amnesty tens of millions of illegal aliens after making a big show of “deporting” them. He would bully and browbeat the Republican Congress into going along, something Hillary can’t do. Trump’s amnesty would permanently alter the electorate, and make it impossible for any conservative to be elected president again.
More insidiously, Trump has shown no qualms about threatening a businessman and a judge before he’s president. If he’s actually elected president, who will he threaten, why, and how? I checked my imagination. It boggles.
Trump would turn America into just another tin-pot dictatorship. Every American would live in fear of presidential power, hoping it won’t be directed against them.
In thus threatening ordinary citizens, Trump has proven that he’s a greater threat to America than any presidential candidate since George McGovern (who would have destroyed America in other ways, for other reasons.)
Trump is the Nelson Muntz of politics – a stupid, mean bully who hides deep insecurities by attacking other people. For such a man to occupy the office held by Washington and Jefferson would be a disgrace. I won’t help make that happen.
But should I stop there, or should I vote for his opponent? Should I (gasp!) donate to her?
I’m not ready to jump off that bridge yet. But one more threat from Trump against an American citizen will push me over the edge into the Hillary camp.
See the resemblance?
