My issue with “anyone but” is that it can always be worse, and when the replacement isn’t being fully scrutinized because of desperation by the people, then that is an opportunity for a truly terrifying person to seize power. Trump may be a public disgrace, but he certainly is the better option over anyone that would be similar to the most extreme cases of autocracy and fascism. I don’t believe that the left, in its current form, is sane enough to prevent this type of ideological monster from taking power. The best path forward for America right now might very well be to greatly diminish the power of the federal government and allow for much more autonomy in the individual states.

Trying to tell the truth, and be truthful about it.
