25 Reasons I Cannot Support Donald Trump

Matthew 7:15 – Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Forget the sheep’s clothing, this wolf is strutting around in all his wolfy-badness, and no one seems to notice he’s going to blow the house down if he gets the nomination.

Here are 25 reasons – in no particular order – I can never support Donald Trump (with references for those of you who doubt my research on the issue):

  1. He never reveals true policy stances.
  2. He recently flip-flopped on abortion (even supporting partial birth abortion in the past).
  3. He doesn’t understand what the nuclear triad is or its importance.
  4. He made fun of a reporter with disabilities.
  5. He claims he will force another sovereign nation to build a wall along the border despite the other nation’s firm stance that they will not.
  6. He doesn’t know the players in current trade agreements, like the TPP.
    • Nov. FBN GOP Debate
  7. He flip-flopped on ISIS (Let Russia handle it to carpet bombing).
  8. He said he would appoint his pro-abortion sister to the supreme court.
  9. He promotes managing the government over shrinking the government.
  10. Uses vulgarity in public discourse (The presidency is an honorable position and should not be reduced to filth)
    • Repeated offender – too many citations for one point
  11. Encouraged supporters to rough up protesters at a Trump rally, saying he’d pay the legal fees
  12. Told security to keep protesters coats when evicting them from a Trump rally
  13. He said the people of Iowa were stupid because he dropped in the polls to Cruz.
  14. He likened the highly respected Dr. Ben Carson to a pedophile.
  15. He said he can “change” to anything he wants to be.
  16. He wants to reinstitute waterboarding despite the fact it’s been outlawed.
  17. He asserted John McCain wasn’t a hero due to being a P.O.W.
  18. He said if Ivanka wasn’t his daughter he’d probably be dating her.
  19. He couldn’t name a single Bible verse when asked for his favorite and mispronounced 2 Corinthians while at Liberty University.
  20. He can’t control his temper.
    • Feb. CBS GOP Debate
    • Mr. Trump’s Twitter Feed
  21. He wanted to use eminent domain for private use and still supports it today.
  22. He threatens non-supporters.
  23. He continues to flip-flop on healthcare (recently stating support of universal healthcare – like Bernie).
  24. He supported a wealth tax on saved wealth in bank accounts.
  25. He said he would remain neutral on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Bonus: ‘I could murder someone and my supporters won’t leave me.’

And as if this list wasn’t enough, yesterday, his supporters finished me off. While watching a show, I tweeted to the hosts that I would never switch my allegiance to Donald Trump, bringing the onslaught of the ‘Trumpkins.’ From that innocent tweet I was told, ‘I’m not a true patriot,’ ‘my soul is lost,’ and ‘I’m part of the problem with this country.’

Their fearless leader has belittled free speech in the past (http://thelibertarianrepublic.com/trump-close-up-the-internet/), so it’s no wonder the Trumpkins hound anyone with an opposing position.

This is not an exhaustive list by any means. I could add his statements that ‘Planned Parenthood does good things’ or his insinuation that George W. Bush was at fault for 9/11 during the last debate, but I’d be here all day if I listed every statement Trump makes or actions he takes that I disagree with or find questionable.

So in conclusion, if you are infatuated with Donald Trump, please consider these truths and the principles you stand for before casting a vote for him at the ballot box. I don’t know about you, but the man stands contrary to the vast majority of my morals, beliefs, and ideologies, and I can never vote for him.

P.S. Don’t give me that argument about he’s better than Bernie/Hillary because newsflash, we still have better options available to us, let’s choose one.
