Most Some days I’d like to have a much longer show and this was DEFINITELY one of those days. Listen here and you’ll see why:
HausGuest – SooperMexican
Soop KILLED IT and stimulated a FANTASTIC discussion.
Firstly, he pointed out an uncomfortable fact (for some) that is oftentimes totally ignored in the midst of the binary-position debate over immigration: immigrants also start their own entreprenuerial businesses at a higher rate than non-immigrants.
Secondly, we then covered all aspects of the #NeverTrump / #NeverHillary discussion.
Ultimately, Soop’s position is that there are occasions where principles preclude participation in a bad/worse scenario. Trump or Hillary is, for him, one of those times and he therefore cannot and will not vote for either.
Part of his reasoning is that he cannot imagine himself defending the statements that Trump or his acolytes have made. Like this one:
Trump campaign confirms words have no meaning anymore:https://t.co/wv7oKBA4hw

In other words, it’s not just the VOTE that counts, but also the endorsement and support of the positions that that activity entails.
Bonus: one of the most popular conservative videos ever, Soop made this a while ago and if you’ve never seen it, it’s PURE genius:
- Dennis Prager on why #NeverTrump is WRONG:
- Counterpoint: Jonah Goldberg on why he is STILL #NeverTrump
- Healthcare is a right? Rand Paul points out the fundamental problem with Bernie Sanders’ position (which is a de facto endorsement of slavery):
- Education fail: A British school will no longer allow mortarboards at grad ceremonies – for safety’s sake – and a North Carolina school district will no longer honor valedictorians or salutatorians.
