VOTING FOR THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS
While much of the Tea Party rebellion against the GOP establishment is enthusiastic about Trump "Making America Great Again," I'm not at all optimistic. While we don't know what Trump committed to, if anything, in his meeting with top globalist architect Henry Kissinger, it's not a good sign when he praises the likes of Kissinger, Dick Cheney, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Yes, he could just be playing nice—I've documented how he loves flattery and will dish it out, as well—but when dealing with a deadly Cobra, it's not wise to "hold your enemies close."
But I can tell you with absolute certainty that Trump couldn't accomplish even 1% of those promises, even if he fully intended to pursue it without compromise, because of the number of controlled Congressmen he has to deal with. The PTB have dozens of ways to sabotage a president. They will be lying in wait for the first major slip of the tongue he makes. To survive in the presidency, Trump would have to ferret out the dark side of government, and keep them from killing him in the process—which is impossible to do if you don't understand how deep the control system it runs, including the depths of FBI, CIA and Secret Service.
I've long kept my vow of not voting for the "lesser of two evils," ever since I voted for Reagan, thinking he would "make America great." He didn't (though he did try at times) and his compromises gave us the biggest tax increase in history, as well as the first major amnesty. By the way, Reagan didn't bring down Communism either. The wall came down in Europe because the Soviets engineered their own phony demise in order to gain more aid and trade with the West, including military technology.
In keeping with my vow, I didn't vote for George W. Bush, or the corrupt and phony "war hero" John McCain. Neither did I vote for Mitt Romney, who bent over backward to please the establishment. I supported Ron Paul whenever he ran or Chuck Baldwin when he ran as the candidate for the Constitution Party. I sometimes voted Libertarian when they had a good candidate.
With all that said, I'm having second thoughts about withholding my vote from Donald Trump. I would certainly never endorse him. I just don't trust him, and I'm sure this World Affairs Brief will be at the forefront of documenting all the compromises and bad decisions he will make if he becomes president.
However, we are on the cusp of a change so radical and so permanent in this country, with the specter of Hillary Clinton becoming president, that I feel I may have to vote for Trump in the hope of delaying this disaster, even if it only stops a portion of it. I'm pretty realistic, and I don't hold out much hope for Donald Trump saving this country or even turning things around, but if he can simply slow down the globalist agenda, or stop the selection of 4 more radical justices, we have bought ourselves more time. I can't think of any single circumstance where Trump would be worse than Clinton.
