Hillary is the greater danger by a factor of a hundred

Reader comment on item: Why I Just Quit the Republican Party

Submitted by Alec Rawls (United States), Jul 21, 2016 at 16:20

Trump won the nomination because he took the lead in promoting several very important and genuinely conservative positions: a crackdown on illegal and Muslim immigration, national gun-carry rights, appointing justices on the model of Scalia, skepticism about the utterly fraudulent global warming alarm, and a few others. Cruz is also strong on these issues and is a much more principled fighter for liberty on economic issues and in general, but he lost because Trump is better at fighting back against politically correct vilification by the press (a necessary skill) and he is better at playing hardball (a necessary skill).

Much as I love Daniel, his fears about Trump having fascistic tendencies and possibly imposing martial law (!) are sheer fantasy, in contrast to the monstrous evil that is Hillary Clinton, a KNOWN government-weaponizing mega-criminal striving to be the second actual literal Alinsky-communist president in a row. Does Daniel really not realize that We the People have to make a choice? There is not a word about Hillary in this NeverTrump madness.

If Trump did try some crazy-ass things (so far he has proven that he backs off quite easily in the face of criticism, but he is an unknown), he would have his own party and the press against him as soon as he tried ANYTHING the least bit unconstitutional, while Hillary, who we KNOW will do the absolutely worst possible things, will have her party and the press behind her. There is just no comparison on who presents the greater danger.

We simply don't know what kind of danger Trump poses. I fear the worst.
