I'm beginning to read discussions about what to do if Trump is the nominee. One argument for Trump goes like this:
We know that Hillary will nominate the worst possible judges for the Supreme Court; we don't know that Trump will do that. And surely Trump can't do worse. Given those alternatives, the unknown is better than the known.
I think that's reasonable.
I've also read a counterargument. Hillary is better than Trump. If Trump is elected, the corrupt GOP "establishment" that backed Trump rather than Cruz or Rubio will cut deals with Trump.
If, on the other hand, Hillary is elected, the Congressional Republicans will generally blockade all of her initiatives.
And I think that's reasonable.
Speaking for myself, if Trump is the nominee, I won't vote for either one.
There's a point beyond which I refuse to be manipulated by circumstances. If all the available options are too atrocious, I will boycott the game.
It's like a prison guard who tells a POW, "Either shoot one of your comrades or else I will shoot both of them!"
If that's the choice, he will have to shoot them both, because that's a choice I refuse to make. I can only be pushed so far. I won't be bullied.
You can't force me to choose by robbing me of all the marginally decent alternatives, then dare me to pick one of the remaining options. I can't control the situation, but I can control myself.
Ultimately, it's God's world. The consequences are up to him.
