Let me just let everyone know right up front: I have not voted for a presidential candidate since I voted for Ron Paul in the primary election in 2012. If Darrell Castle, presidential nominee of the Constitution Party in 2016, had been on the ballot here in Montana, I would have voted for him.
And before anyone tries to put me on a guilt trip for not voting, they should know that I feel as good about myself when I don't vote as when I do vote. I wholeheartedly agree with John Quincy Adams when he said, "Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost."
Sometimes a vote for principle requires a non-vote.
Donald Trump had four years to earn my vote in 2020, but all he did was confirm my decision to not vote for him in 2016.
It won't do any good to review the myriad reasons I could never vote for Trump in good conscience.
