9 Reasons This Hardcore Republican Mom Would Vote for Hillary Clinton Over Donald Trump

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton

As a Republican on the conservative side, I'm more than used to holding my nose and voting for whichever candidate winds up on the GOP ticket -- no matter how much I don't like who it is. Because in my mind, it's always better to have a squishy Republican in the White House than a big-government-loving Democrat in office. This time around, though, I will not be voting for Donald Trump if he is the front-runner -- and if I were actually forced to vote, I'd check the box for Hillary Clinton instead. And I really, really, really cannot stand that woman.


Nothing personal -- it's just politics. I'm not a fan of liberal policies like Big Daddy Government, high taxes, gun control, affirmative action, single-payer health care, elective abortion rights, and so much more. Time and again, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have advocated for these things. So there's not much difference there.

I'd rather have someone in charge who at least doesn't lie about what he or she is trying to accomplish. So here's why a vote for Hillary trumps a vote for The Donald.

1. He is a big spender.

Donald Trump supported Obama's disastrous stimulus package in 2009. The one that literally used taxpayer dollars to research crack monkeys and shrimp on treadmills. He also supported the bailout of the auto companies ... and that $700 billion bank bailout that provided golden parachutes for a number of corrupt CEOs.

2. He's flip-flopped -- especially as to which side he's on.

The guy is clearly not a fiscal conservative. He's even said many times that he "identifies as a Democrat," and he has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic party and its candidates in recent elections. To be fair, he's donated to the GOP, too, but it's always been heavily outweighed on the Dem side.

3. He hates women.

At least Hillary Clinton seems to actually like women. She may have paid them a lot less than the men on her Senate staff, but she doesn't publicly say that female reporters who asked her tough questions must have been on their periods. You know, like Trump did to Megyn Kelly after she moderated a debate last August. In fact, Donald Trump is probably the most sexist presidential candidate since Thomas Jefferson. Just take a look at what he said about fellow GOP nominee Carly Fiorina in 2015:

Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?! I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?

4. He hates women -- and he's creepy.

Remember when he said he'd probably be dating Ivanka Trump if she wasn't his daughter? Or when he referenced his long and beautiful manhood? Yeah, that happened.

5. He doesn't even like Modern Family.

This is basically a crime.

6. He hates immigrants.

He's said in recent months that he wants a mass deportation of illegals and to build a 2,000-mile fence that he's somehow going to make Mexico pay for. Because that's not the most ridiculous, implausible stance on our broken immigration system ever.

7. He hates Muslims even more.

Banning all Muslims from the country? So basically you're screwed if you're an Islam-practicing Mexican. Hey, they could exist!

8. He dared to insult Heidi Klum

He said the supermodel was no longer a "10," and we all know that no matter what side of the aisle you're on, Heidi Klum is a goddess.

9. He's just a baby. A big, MEAN baby.

I can't support Trump because he acts like he has a personality disorder on crack. He skipped the Iowa GOP debate because he thinks Megyn Kelly is a bimbo. He wavers on his policies, has no morals, and is a sexist pig. He runs his mouth off time and again, and is rude, arrogant, and beyond obnoxious.

In the end, I'd rather have a Democrat I don't care for in the White House than a Republican I loathe.
