Yea, there's a lot of pondering left to be done. Politics in the US has always been about choosing between 2 candidates. Taking your ball and going home because you don't like either one doesn't stop the game and just helps to fuck other people. 

The election goes on regardless of people not voting (or writing in some other idiot who has zero chance of winning).

Also fuck Trump. He is under 40% and falling. McConnell made a mask video. If he gets under 35 there may be heavy behind the scenes pressure to get him to step down. Of course he won’t but it will further insure his defeat in November

Trump retweet’s a video with someone saying “white power” this morning and you haven’t made a final decision? Cool. 

Haven’t made a final decision on who I will write in, but certainly I won’t pull the lever for trump.

They are already floating that he might withdrawal from the top nomination. I don’t believe it. He will be the candidate even if he falls into the lows 30s or high 20s, which I think is certainly possible. The gop establishment failed at holding him off in 2016. They ain’t going to accomplish it as an incumbent.

Yea what the fuck is wrong with these people. It’s like they’ve been offered a bj by Kate and tell her to fuck off because they wanted to raw dog it in her ass. 

It’s not a fucking all or nothing choice. Like the rest of life, everything is a compromise. Anyone who doesn't acknowledge that needs to get cunt punted back to reality.

This.
When Texas hasn’t been in play, you have the luxury of a “send a message” third party vote.
If Texas is in play - and current polling said it is - refusing to vote for his opponent is functionally a vote for Trump. You don’t get to sit this one out in the “but I have super-super principles” section. There is no such section this time. Just Trump, and the guy who can beat trump and take electoral votes from him. There’s no sitting this one out. Pick.

The problem isn't the 99% @TwiceHornreferenced, its the 1%. The 99% are about  the most honest people in the entire governing apparatus.

I never said they weren't honest.  Many of them are probably of extremely high integrity.

I said the policies they carried out were often of a reactionary bent, regardless of who was in office.

And that their intelligence wasn't always extremely reliable.

Trump winning was a fucking embarrassing electoral college tally. Don’t ever fucking forget that. If you sit it out and don’t vote for someone who can beat him, you’re being a shithead, and you know it.
We shipped weapons to fucking Stalin to best Hitler. And it was the right choice. You can fucking hold your self-important nose and vote for Biden.

He is a level headed poster and has been consistent with his views regarding American foreign policy and the IC. It's not like he suddenly pulled this opinion out of his ass. This thread is very much prone to group think and there isn't any room for nuance when it comes to anything surrounding Trump. It is possible to be critical of Trump and other things at the same time, acting as if it isn't possible is a clear indication that someone isn't a level headed poster.

Yes....it's possible to be critical of Trump and other things at the same time.

But if those "other things" cause you to raise your patrician nose high in the air, and help Trump win re-election by not supporting the only candidate who can beat him, your stupidity is blinding.

Again, we shipped weapons to fucking STALIN to beat Hitler.  That doesn't mean that there wasn't literally books full of shit really, really wrong with Stalin.  But we still shipped him fucking weapons.  Because you take out the most immediate threat first.  Always.  That's just fucking basic reasoning 101.

I appreciate that @F250. @Macanudo, Putin has no juice on me.  I haven't changed my posting style much over the years. Pretty much the same style that I explained to @hayden_horn years back at the whataburger on the way to OU. Pushing the edge to see where people really stand. Quite a bit of the context outside the sandbox has changed, however. Nobody really use to lose their mind when faced with aggressive criticism of the IC when Bush was in power, and even when Obama's CIA was droning Americans. Today however, quite a different thing.  More than a few posters here are also butt hurt because my criticisms of the IC, FBI in particular, were borne out in reality. But hey, it is what it is.

I simply don't buy into the lesser of two evils thing when it comes to my vote.  I'd rather protest vote with Willie than engage the two party system where Hope and Change, Part Deux, Two-Party Boogaloo is going to be the punch line.

No.  Red herring.  The issue is not your criticism of the IC.  It is 1) that you repeatedly use it to distract from criminal failures/intentional acts of the Trump regime, 2) so much so that you won't even commit to voting for his opponent.

Sorry, any credibility you have rings fucking hollow when you openly state the functional equivalent of "hey, I know I could maybe cast a vote that would deny Trump Texas's EC votes...but I won't."  If you were wondering how you completely piss away credibility, that's how you do it.

"I know that the forest fire is feet away from my home, while a tsunami is likely to happen next week, so I refuse to put out the forest fire right now because I just won't play these bullshit natural disaster games."

Refusing to support the person who can defeat the near-term, existential threat not just to the country but to humanity so you can play some smug "but, I mean, I was right -- the Dems aren't great either" as people fucking DIE....well, that's not the lesser of any two evils.  That's evil all on its own.  You have the luxury of sitting in your safe home in West Austin, swirling your intellectual superiority around in a crystal tumbler.  Meanwhile, people's lives will be ended or ruined -- lives that wouldn't have been, had Trump been denied a second term.

You deal with the immediate, existential threat first.  Then, you tackle the rest of them.  Usually in order of imminence of the threat.  Because that's what sane people do.

The idea that someone would happily risk the future of the country because they don't like the way the federal cops do things is lunacy.  There are two choices:  help Trump stay in power and take your chances that we devolve into an authoritarian cesspool with no say on anything whatsoever, or help get him out of office and cement the possibility that you could effect change down the road.

It’s impressive in a disgusting sort of way that he’ll stick to acting as if voting is nothing more than a self-affirming consumer choice, like whether one should buy North Face or Columbia, while there’s a pandemic that most of the rest of the world has controlled raging through the country because one of our two political parties has gone insane.

No, I'm not calling out Anastasis for his criticism of the IC.  Follow me here: I'm criticizing him because he has stated in plain terms that he won't be voting for the only person who can remove Trump from power.

So, to go with the metaphor, Anastasis isn't just criticizing Bolsehvism, he's actively denying them the tools they need to defeat the imminent threat to the world (you know, the guy who conquered Europe and was working on a nuke of his own).  All while sitting in a smug West Austin house, mostly immune to the worst cruelty, death, and suffering that Trump inflicts.  It's cowardly bullshit.  He cloaks it in intellect, but it's just old-fashioned cowardice -- he refuses to make tough choices.  When confronted with bad choices, always make the less shitty one that provides the best result of the choices.  Ending an existential threat to the country and humanity -- well, that seems like a good choice.

But go ahead and vote for Willie, and watch Trump win Texas by a single-digit number of votes over Biden.  This race can be that close.  A vote for Willie is a vote for Trump to stay in office.  That's it.  That's the math.  That's a coward's way, but I won't let him slink under a rock and try to wish it away.

I was addressing the IC discussion because it has merit and it was quashed pretty quickly because it was automatically interpreted as a defense of Trump which happens a lot here.

That’s because there was a Texan who wound up there, made a bunch of money, and did just what you described so he could have some good Tex-mex once or twice a week.
