Do you think it's more effective to be for or against something or someone?

Something else what?

Much truth in what you have said but there is also much to be said (and truth of a different sort as well) for taking a stand even when you know in advance that you are and will remain in a minority.

That is essentially what I did (taking a stand) and I am happy, calm and at ease w/ the choice I made, even though I may have contributed some to DJT's election in some manner. I accept that as my responsibility and will live with it in peace. I'd much rather take my stand on values I can sleep peacefully w/ afterwards than align myself w/ an action I cannot live w/ after the fact.

Yeah, that may be an "old fashioned" virtue but it's one I've had since I was born and so I think I'll keep it.


And a couple more things Domenick ...

1) I didn't have an "urge to write-in a candidate". I thought long and hard about what I would do and that thought process began long before election day (about just the facts to which you have referred).

2) Yes, we have a two-party system in this country -- for now, but if I have anything to say about it that'll change to either:
  • A multi-party system; or
  • A two-party system w/ a BINDING "None of the Above" Option (on every ballot; for every office; during every election) where everything goes back to ground zero and restarts w/ TOTALLY NEW candidates when/if "None" wins.
