    Dear US Conservatives, I'm interested in talking with you about a hypothetical scenario or thought exercise.

    Imagine that it's election day for the US Presidential Elections. Imagine further that one of the candidates on the ballot is Mr. Donald J. Trump. And then imagine that you are not putting your vote there.


    What would have gone down until election day for that to happen?
    What development - plausible or fantastical, political or not - would make you not vote for this man?

    If the Democrats would put up a better opponent.
    Unfortunately, I think the Democratic candidate is more about who has political ties in the party than who would be best to run the country.
    Not that I have voted for or will vote for Trump, just won't be voting democrat either.

    So I take it from the scarcity of responses, that Nakosis would be the only Conservative to ever consider not voting for Trump in any conceivable situation? Ah well.

    Who would a Democratic candidate have to be, or what would he have to do, to convince you to vote for them?

    Be interesting. I would have voted for Sanders. I suspect the reason he didn't win the nomination is that he doesn't have the power base in the Democratic party.

    Yea, we've already established that you're not communicating in good faith.

    You should be directing this at Republicans more so than conservatives as there is no conservative with a capital "C." US Republicans do not represent conservative values in an ideological sense nor do they represent it in practice yet alone in any coherent ideology, they just gather the masses and divide and conquer the vote. That is all

    Conservatives like myself hate the notion of voting for Trump and felt force to vote for him on very unarguably horrible grounds come election time. US conservatives fit the bill more so of Libertarians but sadly semantics and lack of political awareness has stopped us from perceiving the shifts in our political understanding.

    I personally was all about the Yang Gang until no more Yang. That would have been the first "Democrat" I would have voted for but with Jo Jorgenson coming up for election, I think there is a new winner.
