To my friendsPosted: October 7, 2016
I have several good friends, dear friends, who are still undecided about who to vote for next month. I will never, ever forsake a friendship over politics. My friends are too valuable to me to discard over a principled agreement.
That said: indirectly supporting Trump by sitting out the election is the same as intentionally supporting him. This is no longer a principled agreement. I understand wanting to vote your conscience. But I don’t understand how your conscience will leave you alone if you don’t do everything you can to prevent him from becoming President.
“Sir… do you remember the 2016 election?”
“Yeah, I do.” (shuffles awkwardly) “I… I sat that one out.”
“You mean… you could have helped prevent THIS… and you DIDN’T?”
That is all.
