    How much money would you need to be paid to vote for Trump?

    $1000, $100,000 a million?

    To be honest, I don't think the president is that crucial. We have the 2 other branches of government and the constitution to keep everything in check. If someone offered me $1000 to vote for Trump or Biden, sure.

    If someone offered you 1 million to vote for Trump, would you? In four years you can elect someone else and you'd still have your million or whatever you spent it on.

    Is there any amount that would get you to vote for Trump?

    No.

    EDIT: Sorry, I see that this is in the jokes section.
    My price would be the permanent shut-down (and financial bankruptcy of the owners) of Fox News, Breitbart, Info Wars, Rush Limbaugh, and a few others of their ilk.

    $50 would easily get my vote.
    I live in Indiana which is going Trump anyways. I will vote, regardless.
    So, :shrug:!

    The USA isn't a democracy anyway. Who cares?

    You couldn't pay me enough to become a traitor to the ideals that this nation was founded under. Even though there are three branches of government designed so that they can keep each other in check and protect the constitution, when you have traitorous members of congress who violate their oath to perform their constitutional duties, as they have for the past 3 1/2 years, those protections no longer exist. The only thing that has kept Trump from becoming a dictator has been the courts... however the longer he remains in office the more damage he will do to the balance of the Supreme Court. Hopefully it's not already too late to save the nation.

    I would for 1 million dollars. My partner would vote against him, thereby nullifying my vote. It would be like being given 1 million to stay home and not vote.

    Who do I need to contact? :)

    A million dollars could do a lot more to thwart Trump's mismanagement than a single vote could do to support it.

    Funny you should mention this. The Democrats have been buying the welfare vote for a mere pittance...

    That's kind of my thinking but I was wondering those that hate him so much couldn't bring themselves to do such an evil act for any amount.

    Red states are the poorest so your attempt to bash falls flat.

    I don't think that's a rational position. The amount of good you could do with the money you got, for yourself, and for others, would be far more beneficial than one vote. Your vote is almost certain to not matter anyway.

    I started to put it into the political sections, but it's not serious so...
    Just wondering how deep the hatred for Trump goes.

    I would say around $500. My vote isn't going to matter anyway, and I could convince more people to not vote for him to counteract my vote.

    Democrats have been earning the vote of the poor by offering them real help.

    Republicans have been doing the opposite by treating the "least" as sub-human slime.

    That line of thought is common, but it is incorrect. I don’t hate Trump. I pity him, just like I pity any mentally handicapped and socially inept fool. That he was given power by millions of naïve victims of a corporate media, that is both inept and cunning at the same, time makes me both sad for my nation and moderately angry.

    My hatred for corruption both in government and in media.....that’s rather strong.
    Just so ya know.
