    OMG. How bizarre is it that I started a similar thread at the same time as you did.

    unfortunately yes, However I would point out that one of the 2 Evils is going to win no matter what you do, so by voting for the lesser evil you are doing your part to avoid subjecting us to what you view as the worse evil.

    The way our system works, even if 95% of us decided not to vote because we did not like either Candidate enough, the other 5% would still vote, and one of the 2 would win. So IMO not voting at all, when there is a choice between bad and worse is just as bad as Voting for the worst one.

    I refuse to vote between going to hell on the interstate versus taking the 2-lane.

    Assuming he's not the nominee, you'll write him in?

    The destination remains the same.

    You want to be a slave living in a nice beach front hovel, that's your funeral.

    Yes, It's still voteing for evil and I have been sick of it for the last 30 years.
    Going to hell in the fast lane vs. going to hell in the slow lane.
