  •  Speaking for myself, I am not with you. (8+ / 0-)

    You, personally.

    We do not share any of the same aims, and we share almost none of the same values.

    To whatever extent you represent a side, I am not now nor will I ever be on it.  Much of what you advocate is, simply put, grotesquely evil.

    We may vote for the same people at times - it will never mean I'm "with you".

      I swear, there's nothing the purists hate more than to have to admit they are going to dirty themselves with some part of the real world, like deciding how to vote.  

      People who don't have the fortitude to deal with an election can just skip it.   But don't expect thanks from a greatful nation for being too pure to take sides.

        there is nothing that authoritarian bullies hate more than having people stand up to them and refuse to submit to their demands.  They also can't stand the color grey or having to consider situations that are neither black nor white.  

        I've never missed a presidential election and I won't miss this one either.

          Your reasons might be complicated shades of gray, but you are either for him or you aren't.  You're either joining or you are silent.  

          But I point that out and you start calling me an authoritarian bully.  Just because you can't have your purity cake and eat it too.  Just to shut me up.  Hypocritical isn't it.
