Amoral Republicans Hide Behind Expectation of Trump Loss!

We ask the obvious question: Why don’t the Republican establishment and office holders declare now that they will vote for Hillary when they  know that a Trump presidency will be an unmitigated disaster! They are counting on a Trump loss to shield them from their moral responsibility to go beyond saying they won’t vote for Trump, and declare they will vote for Hillary.
     Imagine that the election was looming and the horror of a Trump presidency was imminent. They would have to declare for Hillary since they would be blamed, and truly be responsible for the impending calamity. But we would not learn that they were patriotic Americans, only that they were amoral Pragmatists. That is, those coincidentally doing the right thing, not because it was the right thing to do, but with no moral scruples whatsoever, to survive.
     Their only way to claim basic decency for themselves would be to declare for Hillary NOW! Fortunately for us, at the moment at least, it looks like we can confirm for ourselves the moral quality of Republicans who don’t declare for Hillary – that they don’t have any – because they will continue to be able to hide behind their hope, and now expectation, that Trump will lose!
