Here Are 11 Reasons Not to Vote For Donald Trump

Dana Loesch, fierce gun-rights defender and host of her own television show, just published an op/ed on the reasons why she isn’t supporting Donald Trump.

And they’re good.

Here are my favorites:

  1. He gave over $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation
  2. He has consistently fought Tea Party activism
  3. He has given more to Democrats than Republicans in previous election cycles
  4. He approves of a government mandate to purchase health insurance
  5. He has been very inconsistent in his 2nd Amendment support
  6. He defends Planned Parenthood
  7. He’s neutral on the Israel/Palestine conflict
  8. He’s a supporter of eminent domain abuse

I would also add three of my own:

  • His record of business failures is very large, despite constant self-congratulations on the topic. Of course, every successful person has failures and that’s not the issue. But the details of his bankruptcies and some of the failures (Trump University, for example) are quite telling. Bottom line: he’s not anywhere near the business titan that he presents himself to be.
  • I have absolutely no confidence in the type of Supreme Court justice he’d nominate, especially since he was historically critical of Antonin Scalia. This is a huge concern.
  • His New York state political activism significantly leans left. New York’s economy sucks and they’re famously anti-fracking, for example, yet Trump has been almost invisible working to “Make New York Great.” New York has been his home for almost his entire life but there’s no real record of him supporting or advancing a conservative agenda.

Look at this list of his donations to Democrats, a big chunk of whom are New York politicians:12742563_1028524843853052_1508193531945030557_n

This is a man who has had ample opportunity to put his efforts and money where his mouth now is. And he hasn’t.

Another thing, although this wouldn’t be as big of a deal if all of the above didn’t apply in spades, is that he’s an asshole. Given the long list of negatives working against him, it’s hard to get past this one, as well.

And lastly, to be sure, there are many more reasons. Tweet me yours – @MPHaus.

  1. St. Peter. Before you settle in, it seems there is a proelbm. We seldom see a high official around these parts,you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.’ No proelbm, just let me in,’ says the man.’Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then youcan choose where to spend eternity.’ Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,’ says the senator.’I’m sorry, but we have our rules.’And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goesdown, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himselfin the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him,shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had whilegetting rich at the expense of the people.They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviarand champagne.Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevatorrises The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him. Now it’s time to visit heaven.’So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, laying the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns. Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Nowchoose your eternity.’The senator re flects for a minute, then he answers: Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.’So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down,down to hell. Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage.He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash andputting it in black bags as more trash falls from above. The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. I don’t understand,’ stammers the senator. Yesterday I was hereand there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster andcaviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Nowthere’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?’The devil looks at him, smiles and says, Yesterday we were campaigning Today you voted.’
