There are only two legitimate reasons to vote Republican:
- You are 100% anti-abortion under any circumstance and believe absolutely that half the population of the U.S. should not have the legal right to choice or personal sovereignty; and/or
- You are filthy rich, you want to continue paying an effective tax rate well below that of the average American, and you otherwise thoroughly enjoy the financial protections and rewards bestowed upon you by that party.
Any and all other justifications are just noise. The Republican party likes to paint itself as being all about family values, fiscal conservatism, and patriotism. In reality, however, it stands for exclusion, regression, greed, racism, misogyny, homophobia, and religious extremism… and, frankly, treason. And don’t forget seething hatred. Republicans despise the government of the country they purport to love, and it’s a good bet that they also hate you.
