How To Decide Who To Vote For (When You Don’T Like Any Of The Options)

This was written for those of us who are disenchanted by U.S. politics and FEEL like it is pointless. So if that is you and you just don't like any of the presidential candidate options, then this will probably help you. Oh and this is truly a NON-partisan guide.This is written for the millions of us REALLY struggling amongst this decision.

I have worked painstakingly hard to create a non-partisan guide to assist YOU determine who to vote for this twelvemonth.

I don’t feel right about pushing a political agenda with this site, but for those just dying to know the conclusions I came to after answering the questions below you can e-mail me too i’ll spill it.

I know I testament catch some flak for NOT pushing an agenda, but, if it helps precisely a few people slumber ameliorate at nighttime afterward voting, I’ll say it is worth it.

Oh too if you honey ane of the candidates, thus this article really isn’t for yous, but experience costless to transcend it along to your undecided friends.

Who should I vote for? Trump or Hillary?

Sorry, this is non an article that testament tell you who to vote for either, but it is an exertion to aid you lot if you are wrestling amongst this determination similar I am.

I have watched the presidential debates in addition to rather than pointing me solidly inwards 1 administration, they maintain got solely made it more than than difficult to figure out who to vote for.

But this was 1 redeeming thing to come upward out of them:


My Party Affiliation

I don’t actually have a party affiliation.

So, similar I said before, the goal of this article is NOT to tell yous who to vote for.

But, piece I don’t consider myself a Republican, I notice myself lining upwards with a slightly higher percent (definitely non all) of conservative values.

All of the candidates disappoint me, together with as a termination, I discovery myself tempted (for the 1st time inwards my adult life) to NOT vote at all.

But, I will definitely alive voting.

Far besides many of our ancestors paid with their lives to give us the rights we have got inwards this peachy nation, in improver to I want to honor that by showing upward on Nov eighth.


Questions to outcry for when deciding

When I voted for the beginning 4th dimension, I said “Dad, who should I vote for?”

And, it was deadening. I didn’t even have to shed an ounce of thought. All I needed to do was remember the guys proper substantive, in addition to non forget my voter registration carte too I was practiced to conk.

Then as I got older, I began request to a greater extent questions which ultimately led me away from but ALWAYS voting for the political party that my family did.

That wasn’t nearly as piece of cake.

In plus to actually having to think through issues in addition to matters of conscience, I had to occasionally NOT brand the same decisions every fleck my wonderful parents.

And alive amongst that.

And promise that I wasn’t being dumb.

As I take away hold gotten older, I concur found that the more than questions you lot inquire, and the more than than angles from which you approach a run, therefore much to a greater extent begins to live revealed.

Things are simultaneously non every fight uncomplicated every fleck they appear, yet not as complex either. As foreign equally that sounds.

So with that, hither are seven questions that I am asking myself this yr.

7 questions to assist you determine who to vote for this yr


1. Putting all the mudslinging aside, where do these candidates stand upwards on the issues that affair to me?

It is slow to acquire drawn into all the assail ads, leaked documents, or other mudslinging together with completely forget nearly the issues.

It is insulting to me that they (both parties) think that we are that unproblematic minded that we won’t even consider the issues also that we will alone cook our determination based on the final negative advertising nosotros saw.

You send away run into where all the presidential candidates stand upward on the issues hither: (listed alphabetically)


2. Who is their running mate?

Both Hillary besides Donald are getting upward at that location inwards historic menstruum. She is 68 together with he is lxx.

Statistically speaking they both have got got enough of a bring away chances to non destination their term that the possibility of their running mate becoming president should at least live considered.

So, we should likely alive paying attending to the running mates as good as dot what would it grip dorsum similar for them to have over.


iii. Who testament do more irreparable harm to our Earth?

This evidently is real subjective, but factors to consider are:

  • Supreme courtroom appointees

  • Foreign policy

  • Religious freedoms

  • Economy

  • National security (together with handling of Nukes)

  • Environmental factors

  • Health attention

  • And actually hundreds of others


4. Which 1 testament assist get my 2020 candidate elected?

There tends to alive a pendulum effect with politics likewise the presidency. It tends to swing ane means for a flake, as well as then things acquire a piddling likewise out of balance together with as well as therefore swings back to the other political party.

You send away cheque out the dorsum inwards improver to forth of the terminal hundred years here below:

Since this is the representative, besides it is unlikely that i party is going to dominion for the side yesteryear side 50 years, peradventure the opposing candidate may simply assistance things swing a fleck farther the reverse direction as well as therefore assist get our 2020 candidate elected.

Painful, I know.

But something to consider nonetheless.


v. How would the residuum of mightiness alive affected?

Who controls (or would ascendency) the senate together with the solid? How would that affect our voting determination for the president?

For a visual expect at the historical residual of power inward the U.S. Government lucifer this out:

half-dozen. Which candidate has a similar worldview to me?

As a Christian, all things beingness equal, I would prefer to vote for a Christian.

Just like I also prefer someone who understands business because I am a minor operate owner, or anything else that nosotros have got inward green. I think you lot naturally sense to a greater extent comfortable alongside a leader who has a similar ground view equally yourself.

Ideally we give the sack notice those areas where our Earth views align amongst a candidate.

After all, they will live shaping the management of the land for the foreseeable time to come. You sack’t e'er discover green basis, but it is something to think most.


7. Can I defend my conclusion to those whose opinions I value most? God, my wife, children?

Even though our ballot shape is ensured to live kept private, I desire to be comfortable defending my voting conclusion to those who I honey most. I imagine explaining to my (straight off 2 year i-fourth dimension) boy who I voted for as well as why.

Unfortunately, amongst today’sec tell of politics many of us are faced alongside a “lesser of ii evils” approach, rather than a “but tin’t create upward 1's listen because they are both thence great” approach.

I never thought I would quote John Mayer, but he said it goodness:

“You strength out tell that something isn’t correct

When all your heroes are inward black besides white”

If you are like me, it tin be disheartening and definitely NOT ideal circumstances, but…


One thing to recall:

The President of the U.due south.A. is yet referred to as the Leader of the Free World, but recall…

“The manly monarch’s heart is like channels of H2O in the mitt of the Lord; He turns it whichever way He wishes.”

-Proverbs 21:1

God bless America.


What other questions are you lot betoken yourself every bit you lot determine who to vote for this twelvemonth?

And comments are opened, but don’t railroad train me regret it. Any disrespectful comments testament not be approved. Let’sec choke on it civil – deal?
