This will be my first time voting in an American election. Boy, what a wonderful one to start with.
I know the lesser of two evils is a tired old cliché, and I know you should try to vote for the candidate that bests represents your personal views, but I can't honestly say either Clinton not Trump do. The third party candidates are a joke, so I'm left with the lesser evil option.
To me, that's Clinton.
Trump honestly scares me. He's spewed racism, misogyny, homophobia. His economic plans look like a disaster, his running mate actually believes in conversion therapy for homosexuals and don't even get me started on the damned wall.
Clinton may be a corporate shill and one of the least human candidates there has ever been, but I don't think she will do anything that is likely to actively harm the country. I doubt she'll be a good president, but I think she is at least more qualified to do the job than that blundering fuckstick Trump.
