You forgot the most important reason. The world sits on a knife’s edge of total nuclear destruction. One oh so slight technical or political glitch and it’s curtains for humanity. Global warming is bad enough but contrary to popular belief, it’s those thousands of nuclear tipped missiles in silos and aboard submarines all over the world that is by far the greatest threat to us all.

Yet I see potential Trump voters uncertain of whether or not they will vote for “Mr. Insanity” mostly because he is saying bad things about some Ms. Universe Queen. Really, that’s your main concern?

You haven’t given any thought to handing over our nuclear arsenal to the most mentally unstable man to ever run for the presidency. Do you Trump voters out their have a death wish? Or our you just….. fill in the blank.
