Erickson makes the case for voting for the Trump/Pence in 2020. He was a NeverTrumper, who sees that Trump is doing many good things for the country.



I’ll Be Voting for President Trump and Vice President Pence in 2020

by Erick EricksonRead Profilearrow_right_alt


At this point I can head into 2020 knowing several things. First, the behaviors this President routinely engages in are not going to change. He is who he is. Second, the pretty smiles and calm demeanors the other side will probably work through the media to contrast with the President will not hide the fact they think children can be killed at birth, Christians should be removed from policy making positions, and the economy should be bankrupted to implement environmental policies that will not actually mitigate climate change.
My friends in the center-right coalition who are flirting with Democrats are, more often than not, not really socially conservative. But I am. That party offers me no home and is deeply hostile to people of faith. The President has shown himself to not share my faith convictions any more than the other side, but the President has shown he is willing to defend my faith convictions and is supportive of them.

I could stay home or vote third party as I did in 2016. But what will that get me? The ability to say “not my problem” or the self-assurance that I didn’t get dirty in having to choose? I have many Christian friends who, when I have discussed this, tell me I should just stay home and turn my back. Both parties, they tell me, are profoundly corrupt. And they’re right. But I am not looking for a messiah in politics and don’t have some religious sentiment tied to my vote. While I understand and accept the sincere conviction of some of my friends who have decided they will just sit out the process, I have decided otherwise. In 2016, we knew who the Democrats were and were not sure of who Donald Trump was. Now we know both and I prefer this President to the alternative.

I will vote for Donald Trump and Mike Pence. And, to be clear, it will not be just because of what the other side offers, but also because of what the Trump-Pence team has done. They’ve earned my vote.

I'll be voting that way as well. The moderate democrats need to purge the socialists from their ranks before I would even consider giving them more power.

It's February of 2019... why would anyone make up their mind who they're voting for over a year and a half from now when they don't even know everyone who will be running?

Idiots be idiots… trolls be trolls. What can you do, it's the norm these days, 2 out of 3 threads are opened for no reason but self-profilation and trolling.

He's seen what the Democrats have become --- and he knows they are insane and are full--blown socialists. Not a candidate among them who is reasonable or open-minded.

Trump is the only guy who can continue to implement sound policies, that is making America even greater.

Trump is the most divisive, hateful president...ever. There is NO sound reason to vote for him.
I would choose a vasectomy with a broken beer bottle over voting for trump.

Yeah, I get the embracing of Trump by #VichyGOP, I just wonder why be so proud about being in bed with him so far in advance?

Because, like millions of other Americans, there is no other choice. The Democrats have moved so far to the left, they offer no agenda that will help most Americans.

However, you are right, in that the election is a long way off. In political terms, it's like a decade, but what he is saying is if things remain the same, he will vote for Trump. As things stand now, he will be voting for Trump.

If, Democrats were to change their tune, and actually start to make sense, and proof from Mueller or others shows that Trump is a crook, then he may change his mind.

If Donald took a shit on the Constitution, wiped his ass with the American flag, and took a Russian prostitute golden shower in the Red Square with Putin video taping it, you’d find a way to blame Democrats and still vote for him.
