Tips for surviving what appears to be the worst presidential campaign in American history with both major candidates stunningly narcissistic, deeply dishonest, and devoid of common human decency.
Avoid these cliches
Trump vs. Clinton is just choosing the lesser of two evils. Not only do we do this all the time in real life, such as deciding whether to have chemotherapy or not, the alternative only works when it is better than the two evils. Voting for Jill Stein will probably not affect the election at all and if it does it will only help Donald Trump, leaving you as having supported one of the worst two of three evils.
Sanders should get out of the race. Bernie Sanders is the best thing that has happened to traditional American politics in decades. There is nothing wrong with taking a unsuccessful primary campaign to the convention in order to achieve improvements in the platform, pressure the party leadership to stop acting like indentured servants of the corporate right, and continue to build a new movement for a party that has sold its soul.
