You mentioned consequentialism. Those things you said (btw, who said anything about a nuclear war?) are possible consequences of a Trump win. But they aren't *end* consequences unless that nuclear war happens and the nation/world is annihilated. They are the nadir of things before people refuse to take it anymore. I have resolved not to vote for predators hoping to prevent the worst from happening at all, rather than sooner or later. But it won't work as long as people keep biting the bullet and voting for these candidates who will perpetuate the system that benefits them and harms everyone else.
