First let me make a few things clear:

  1. I hate the Clinton crime family (I thought they were criminal long before Trump)
  2. I'm normally an independent
  3. I switched to democrat to vote for Bernie Sanders in the primary
  4. I believe Bernie Sanders won the primary and Hilary Clinton - Debbie Wasserman Schultz - Donna Brazile stole the primary from the will of the voters
  5. I believe the Clinton's have had people murdered
Now having said all that, why the hell would I vote for a lying, murdering, backstabbing bitch?  Because she's running against Donald Trump and I live in Ohio which is a swing state.  Donald Trump is to much of a danger to our country I'll list my reason below:
  1. He only wants power and will abuse it once he has it
  2. He's a conman, just ask someone who's been conned it's obvious.
  3. He's totally incompetent and has no idea how to govern
  4. I believe he is a Russian agent, either willingly or through blackmail, and will give the Russian our most classified secrets and put our troops and our entire country at risk.
  5. He's to thin skinned to stand up to his critics.
  6. He has stated he will try to revoke libel laws so that he can sue anyone who makes fun of him.
  7. ect...ect...ect...
Now I'm not happy about voting for Clinton, and if Ohio was in the bag for either candidate I would have voted Libertarian in protest of the two clowns the major parties put up, but we're a swing state and I care more about my country than and my protest and while Hillary won't get anything done in four years, at least she won't destroy this country.
Now if the Republicans can pull their heads out of their asses, fire Reince Priebus out of a cannon into the side of Trump Tower, realize they need a moderate candidate, and nominate someone like John Kasich, then I'd vote for the Republican and kick Hillary out.
And let me just say I voted against John Kasich for Ohio Governor twice, but if it was him against Hillary Clinton then I'm voting for Kasich every time.
So there you have it, and if any Trump supporters want to tell me "if you really loved your country you'd have voted for Trump" please go back and read why I won't vote for him.  Anyone who says anything even close to that, even s a joke, will be blocked.  You are entitled to your opinion but keep it to yourself, you don't tell me why you think I'm wrong and I won't tell you why I think your wrong. I'm just stating my personal opinion on the matter, I'm not looking for debate, if I was I would have posted this a few months ago not less than 24 hours before the polls close.

Oh and by the way if you really want change in our government try reading Republic Lost by Lawrence Lessig.

I have seen so many political yard signs I'm surprised when I don't see one.  Obviously I've seen these stupid things all my life and I've always wondered "who the hell chooses candidate to vote for based on a yard sign?"

Lets face it, if your vote can be swayed by a yard sign then you aren't really committed to the candidate.  Seriously does the thought process go like this?  "Oh Jim across the street has a yard sign for the other candidate, well he did fix my weed wacker last week I guess he knows what's best, I'll vote for his candidate"

I just don't see the purpose of these things, and before you say "I give $50 to the campaign and they send me the sign" well that's great but guess what if you really wanted to help the campaign you'd give the money and refuse the sign because the sign costs the campaign money, and they have to pay postage to mail it to you.  So really all you are doing is buying a sign in your yard to make yourself feel better and make people pay attention to you, it's nothing more than a totally selfish act disguised as a political statement.

So because I want honest answers I'm setting up a poll, your answers will be totally anonymous so tell the truth, have you ever been convinced to vote one way or another because of a yard sign?
