A Donald Trump presidency will not just be 4 years of buyer’s remorse. It will be 20 years of recovery from the insanity he will unleash. Ronald Reagan’s presidency normalized the Religious Right, bolstered the War on Drugs, and appointed extremely conservative federal judges like Antonin Scalia. With Trump/Pence, we will not take a step back but a tumble down the hill of regression. The Alt-Right will become as normalized as the Religious Right, Stop and Frisk will be national law, marriage equality will be gone. If this were any other election cycle, I may play around with the idea of electing a destructive blowhard for President, but this is not the time.
I don’t think burning the country down to the ground is the most effective way to help the country because all that does is provide a simple solution to a complex problem.
It’s like if some people in a country are fed up with the rise in crime and decide to vote for someone who is clearly going to be a brutal dictator but will get the crime rate to decrease. Now after they voted for him, those people have to question whether the ends justify the mean and if they are ok without democracy.
So in short, with time and patience, Americans can fix the problems in their country piece by piece to avoid mistakes.
