“My name is Jeff. I’m a former Trump supporter and today, I find myself wondering why any Republican would vote for Donald Trump.

“Donald Trump is the antithesis of every value Republicans have stood for: The Constitution, the rule of law, accountability for your actions, strong military and respect for those who serve, ethical behavior, moral compass, none of which applies to Donald Trump.

“But I think people are abandoning their principles and their morals, maybe even their faith because they’re angry, they’re frustrated, and they’re afraid. And Donald Trump is the only one saying the things they want to hear. I’m not buying it. We’ve seen what Donald Trump really is, and it disgusts me to my core.

“Trump is not, has never been, and never will be a true Republican. So for the first time in my life, I will be voting for a Democrat for president. And believe me, this is not easy for me to do.

“I voted straight Republican tickets all my life, but my moral compass and love of country tells me that voting for Biden is the right thing to do right now because the only thing Trump wants to do is to burn down our democracy and rule over the ashes.

“And I’ll tell you, I do take some small comfort that Biden has not been as extreme as we feared, and you can see that because the far left isn’t very happy with him. And let’s face it, we can fix bad legislation, but fixing a ruined democracy, that is exponentially more difficult. And that’s what we’ll have with Donald Trump.”
