With Hillary, we get more of the Obama administration although I don't think she as quite as radical as Obama is.
With both Hillary and Trump, we get liberal judges including Supreme Court justices. This is of huge importance to me since the primary ways the President affects abortion and gun control is through the courts. Although Obama has shown that some can be done on those issues with the use of executive orders and regulatory actions. Hilary might be worse on those than Trump but I doubt Trump will rescind anything Obama has already done on those issues. So on two of my primary issues, I see Trump and Hillary as a toss up.
On my other major issue, government spending, I don't see any evidence that Trump will be significantly if any different than Hillary. And that is going to destroy this country.
On immigration Trump is probably better, but he could create trade wars that will destroy the world economy which I don't think Hillary will do.
Moreover, Trump will get Republican legislative all out approval for what he will do which may destroy not only the Republican party but also conservatism.
Finally I don't see any difference in character. They both are liars and crooks.
I certainly won't vote for Hillary but I am having a real hard time seeing how I can vote for Trump. I hate this election because I don't see how the Republic survives whoever wins!

Trump may only give you 40% of what you are looking for, Cruz may give you 90%, Hillary and other lib buzzards will surely take away 100%, and that is a 140% departure from what Trump could deliver.
I get that people are fed up, I'm at the cusp of damning them all myself, but, gotta look what's coming if you choose to sit it out.
40% of something, or 100% of nothing.
Watching them come out of their little rat holes waving Mexican flags in my Country in an effort to suppress Trump, makes my blood boil. I'll do whatever it takes to push our nominee to the front.
I am glad Romney lost, be would have had the political capital to pass universal background checks and another assault weapons ban after Sandy hook.
Side note: even if your go doesn't win the Nod, staying home only hurt candidates downstream. Write in or Voter libertarian or green for president. Canidates running for public office at local and state level still need your help
I don't see the republican party surviving this election cycle as a major player. Now that the democrat party has dropped all pretenses and given itself over to socialism, I can see two things happening. One is that any remaining sane democrats (I'm thinking of Jim Webb, for example) will probably either become independents or republicans (where they will fit right in). The other is that the democrat party becomes the one monolithic party, while the opposition degenerates into coalitions of smaller parties of differing ideologies, but with one think in common and that is an enmity for the democrats.
