I will vote AB0 in the General Election.

No one is perfect. No one on the R side is as bad as zerO. We have no idea how anyone will govern once in office. We have been lied to and betrayed by every conservative candidate on one issue or another. Our conservatives are picky and they can be rolled by the press. They can be manipulated into not voting, if there is no one pure enough to satisfy them. And if there is such a mythical candidate, they are destroyed by the media and therefore never have a chance.

However, we know how bad the zerO has been, is and will be. We have seen a coup over the past three years. Illegal immigration, to take your specific issue in your post, was at least stymied by the House GOP, so zerO simply used his Executive Powers to institute defacto amnesty.

You want more of that?

I know a lot of people who are saying “Let it all crash”, “Let people discover what it is like under communism, so they will rebel, we can have a revolution and rebuild on the ashes.” What if they don’t rebel? What if they can’t rebel because they need the Federal Government to eat and keep a roof over their heads? What if the revolution fails to materialize or, if it does, is short-lived and simply fails under Federal power?

I am not pushing any candidate, at the moment. I am old enough to be irrelevant to the progressives, anyway. But I will at the very least not be a willing party to the re-election of the zerO.

YMMV.

I also like to point out that revolutions can just as easily install full fledged Communism. Che Guevara anyone?

BTTT. Perfectly stated.

Revolutions generally turn out poorly for liberty.

Only the American Revolutionaries were able to turn out something pretty good, compared to France, Russia, etc.

But even our founders set in motion a train wreck by 1861.
