So then how exactly does sitting on my hands and not voting for a less than ideal Republican nominee, thereby helping to elect a radical socialist Democrat, help anything?
Wrong question. The correct question is how would voting for a GOP socialist over a Democrat socialist prevent the country from going further down the path of socialism?

Since FDR, this country has been getting progressively more socialistic. One party moves this process much faster than the other. Ideally we reverse this trend, but I don’t see this happening (by who and how will they get elected?) so I choose the slower path rather than the fast track. Withholding my vote or voting for a third party candidate who has no chance of winning is a vote for the fast track toward more socialism. Find a third party candidate who is a true conservative with a real chance of winning, and you have my vote. Or we change into a parliamentary system where a conservative party can gather enough votes to influence the ruling government.
