So, I’m in the Army. We’re reducing our numbers and good Soldiers are getting laid off as a result. I know Trump would halt that and I’d be able to retire if he became president. On the other hand, Sanders would probably deepen the cuts. I feel it’s in my personal interest to vote for Trump, but it’d be better for the country to have Sanders as president.
As a member of a capitalist society I think it’s my obligation to look out for myself. As a citizen in a democracy I think it’s my obligation to look out for the betterment of the nation. These two systems conflict. I’m conflicted.
I think I’ll go with Sanders. If society is better as a whole then my later years will be better. -Carl Miller
