Someone stated on another thread about the Democratic candidate:
"I agree that Sanders has the history to prove his authenticity. I don't think anyone would question his integrity. I wouldn't. But it is the fact that I can be sure Sanders is what he portrays himself to be that makes me unable to support him. We have differences that are as different as night and day."
This leads me to ask this question. Candidate 1 has shown himself to be authentic and a man of integrity. His policies, however, are the polar opposite of your own. So, if you're a liberal, this man of integrity supports tax cuts for the wealthy, overturning Roe v. Wade., repealing Obamacare, increasing defense spending, and scaling back Medicare. If you're a conservative, this s man of integrity supports Medicare for All, free public college education, increasing taxes on the wealthy and middle class, and reducing defense spending. The other candidate, Candidate 2, supports policies that coincide wholly with your own views, but is a proven serial liar, has engaged in unethical and unlawful business practices, has committed charity fraud, and more. In other words, he has no integrity.
Who would you support, the man of integrity whose policies you abhor or the lying cheat whose policies you support??
I probably would support a third party candidate in this case. We usually have one, you know. It would be a great opportunity to show the nation, and those in control, that we are not limited to just a two party system.
Hmm. . . that opening blurb sounds familiar.
I would not vote for either. If I did not have a 3rd choice option I would not vote. I will have to live with the consequences of the election, but I don't have to be a party to those consequences.
You certainly want to support someone who is capable of getting the job done. Why would you vote for someone who could get things done you think are wrong? The presidency isn't a popularity contest.
We all want to respect our leaders. But, with the choices you offer you'd be cutting off your nose to spite your face by voting personality over policy. I respected Obama the man, but think he was way off course in his presidency.
I would vote for the man of integrity. Our country has survived liberal presidents and it has survived conservative presidents. I'm not sure it can survive a lying, corrupt president who is not being held accountable.

A recent article by Jack Kelly published at www.realclearpolitics.com notes the following:"Because he so often has “led from behind,” blustered and retreated, our enemies don’t fear our president; our allies don’t trust him; neither do they respect him. American influence has shrunk along with...

liberalization and the broadening of women's reprodutive freedoms, especially in terms of a woman's right to choose and the issue of contraception? What makes some conservative men view a woman's greater reproductive freedom and/or choice is an affront to "morality" and "family...
