If I had to choose between bad and worse, I would go with neither. I'd find a third party candidate that actually stood for things I agreed with. Because voting tactically rather than voting for a party/candidate you actually support is the death of democracy.

I really hope Trump starts his own party, and that it gains some actual traction, if only for the sake of ending the Dem's and Rep's monopoly on governance and opening the door for more parties to be established.
You really have to be out of touch to not recognize that fake-woke neoliberalism, while all kinds of odious in it's own way, is far preferable to galloping fascism. I know which of the two I'd rather have as my opponent going forward: the one that wants me dead less. Pull your head out of your ass and become radical again Ani. The detached, irony-bro attitude is so played out. Saying the two party system sucks is so obvious at this point, you might as well say "Why aren't you more mad the sky is blue?" Trust me, Americans understand better than you how fucked it is. We fucking have to live here. Checking out isn't an option. Must be nice making such painfully obvious, galaxy-brain observations from a distance.

PS. A Trump party would effectively give Democrats permanent majoritarian rule by dividing the conservative base, so perhaps not the outcome you would hope for.
