Holding my nose.

Reader comment on item: Blowback from Criticizing Trump
in response to reader comment: Why not form a new Political Party?

Submitted by Kepha Hor (United States), Jul 25, 2016 at 11:32

Basically I agree with Dr. Pipes and Jonah Goldberg. I appreciate Morris Hertz' comment about Cruz defending his family. Having read both Moses and Kong Zi in the original languages (the latter with considerably more ease), I have a great deal of respect for a filial son. Further, I have also become very disgusted with the two-party system, too. Maybe the winner-take-all politics we Americans have lived with for so long needs to be re-thought, too--especially since I believe that the British historian Pocock was right that our 1776 revolution was an inheritor of those British revolutions of 1638 and 1689.

This being so and given the Electoral College, if there is a ghost of a chance of Mr. Trump winning my deep indigo state, I will hold my nose and vote for him. If not, I'll vote straight GOP for Senate, Congress, state and local offices, and judges, and Third Party or write-in Cruz for POTUS.
