Letter: What it means to vote for the Republican Party
Being an election year, let’s summarize what you believe in by voting Republican.
You believe women shouldn’t have equal pay, nor the right to choose, even in cases of rape and incest, and contraception coverage should be left to the employer’s discretion.
You believe global warming is all liberal hogwash, despite the scientific data.
You believe in unlimited defense spending, even though we spend more than all of the other industrialized nations defense spending combined.
You believe in the trickle-down theory (a convenient fantasy that the rich have convinced you of).
You believe that the United States has the right to strike and invade any country we see fit.
You believe those pesky environmental laws should be eliminated; they just get in the way of businesses making more money.
You believe Social Security and Medicare are Ponzi schemes and have succumbed to the Koch-funded think tanks that spew propaganda that Social Security is going broke (it isn’t).
You believe in Ayn Rand’s world of social Darwinism, and the poor deserve to live in misery.
You believe all social programs should be eliminated.
You don’t believe in minimum wage.
You believe health care is a privilege, and insurance companies have the right to choose who lives or dies.
You believe renewable energy is a waste of time and not worth investing, and see nothing wrong in continued use of dirty fossil fuels.
The reptilian brain lives on in you.
