I appreciate a politician who doesn’t adhere to extreme political correctness, one who rails against the “liberal media” and one who emphasizes a realistic approach to policy instead of one based in misleading, “feel-good” optimism. I am a proudly moderate member of the Republican Party.

I agree with many of Donald Trump’s policy positions, but as of now I can’t bring myself to vote for him. He is purposely divisive and unnecessarily insensitive. I see him more as an entertainer than as a real force for change.

I honestly wish I could feel comfortable voting for him, but presently I would feel more at peace casting an anti-Trump vote for “Lying Crooked Hillary” – or, as he has shockingly called Hillary Clinton more recently, “the devil” and “the founder of ISIS” – because she at least doesn’t mock disabled reporters or Gold Star families. I could go on and on and on.

This is one Republican who wants to keep America great – that is why I will not be voting for Donald Trump in November. I’m sure I won’t be the only one.
