So it is with my choice, My candidate can win and is as closely aligned to my vision of the future so I am with her. Do I have concerns about her policies, yes of course but those concerns are not even on a level with the disgust I have with the remaining candidate that has a chance to win. He is a despicable human being who has no empathy for those who are not like him. The chance that he may win the election is real and so it is with me that I am voting to not only make sure my candidate wins but that the other candidate does not. Because I have decided to put my own principles aside and do what is best for the country given the choices we have, I have made a statement that I am not more important than what happens to all of us.
The bigger picture here dictates that I must vote for the candidate that is as close to my own vision as possible while also voting against the candidate that would cause the most harm to all of us. I can sacrifice my own personal principles when it makes the lives of others better. In the end that is my goal. If I never get to realize my principles come to fruition, at least I won't make them worse by being stubborn and not engaging in the reality of the moment and it's consequences. I get that I am less of who I want to be when I compromise my principles, but I get to help those who would be harmed if I didn't compromise my principles.
