My two cents

I have avoided writing about politics for quite a while for many reasons. The primary one is because I’m a bit of a pessimist, and, frankly, I see the writing on the wall when it comes to the beautiful experiment of a constitutional republic and a nation governed by rule of law.

But, though fatally wounded, we’re not dead yet, and I might as well weigh in on this hot-mess of a political season to explain while I will never vote for Donald J. Trump.

Abortion is my primary issue. It isn’t my only issue, but I will never vote for a pro-abortion or pro-euthanasia candidate. It’s a deal breaker. Yes, Trump claims to be pro-life, but, bluntly, I believe he’s a lying liar who lies a lot. I don’t believe his “conversion story.” Honestly, I don’t believe he cares very much about abortion at all except to say what he needs to say to get votes. But, bearing that in mind, in this election cycle he has said, Planned Parenthood does wonderful things” and other PP-praising statements to that effect. (That would be Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest provider of abortion.) In this election cycle, he has said his very liberal, partial-birth abortion supporting sister would be a “phenomenal” Supreme Court judge. So I know what he says, but I don’t believe any politician on just what they say. They lie by nature. You have to look at the totality of what they say and do, and the evidence does not back up Trump’s words. I don’t believe he is pro-life.

While abortion is my primary issue, it is not the only issue. I wouldn’t vote for a thief who opposed abortion. I wouldn’t vote for a child abuser who opposed abortion. I wouldn’t vote for someone who is completely unfit for the nation’s highest office simply because they oppose – or claim to oppose – abortion. This isn’t dogcatcher or random legislator we’re talking about. The president has a ridiculous (and unconstitutional) amount of power, and all manner of lives are in his or her hands. Being pro-life is the first qualification, but not the sole qualification.

In the case of Trump, I believe the fable of the scorpion and the frog is very instructive. For those unfamiliar:

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The frog asks, “How do I know you won’t sting me?” The scorpion says, “Because if I do, I will die too.”

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream, the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown, but has just enough time to gasp “Why?”

Replies the scorpion: “It’s my nature…”

Trump has spent his entire life demonstrating his nature. He is anti-liberty. He uses the force of government for his personal gain. He has a long history of supporting pro-abortion, very liberal politicians. He has ties with all manner of criminals. His Trump University stinks of fraud. And I don’t believe he holds a single position that he hasn’t held the opposite position. He is cruel, insulting, and vindictive to anyone who opposes him in the slightest. He is the scorpion, and if you give him a ride, he will sting you. It will be a small consolation that he will probably take himself down as well.

If it’s Trump v. Clinton or Sanders, well, this is how the Republic ends. But don’t tell me that since the Republic will die either by fire or by sword, I must choose between lighting the match or swinging the blade. I don’t have to support one liar and criminal who will destroy my country because another disaster stands on the other side. I don’t. Moreover, I won’t.
