I agree that Hillary is incredibly corrupt, and as a conservative, I believe her policies will be quite detrimental to the country. However, I simply fail to understand how Metaxas can be so certain that she will do more damage than Trump. Hillary is unfit morally, but Trump is unfit morally, intellectually, and emotionally. The damage that this unstable man could do to the globe is unfathomable.
Furthermore, Metaxas fails to consider the long-term consequences of supporting Trump. Metaxas is urging conservatives to sacrifice all of their principles in order to gain one term. Perhaps Trump will win, but the GOP will have been damaged permanently. The best thing that conservatives can do for the future of this country is to disavow Trump as loudly as possible. This is the only way to ensure the continued existence of a strong, vibrant, principled movement that can oppose the detrimental policies advanced by the left. To embrace Trump is to kill the party of Lincoln and replace it with an authoritarian party that is every bit as frightening as the most radical elements of the liberal movement.
