Modern Republican Party isn't where I want to be

The modern day Republican Party: government whose sole purpose is to legislate its hate agenda — corporate welfare but no child welfare; low or no corporate taxes; getting rid of tax breaks that help the poor; a dog-eat-dog society; a two-class society where the few super rich control the impoverished masses; unhealthiest population and highest mortality rates in western civilization; malnutrition and starvation of fellow citizens who can't afford to eat or feed their children; a wild west culture where everyone totes a gun and it's perfectly acceptable to murder your fellow citizens with no recourse, that is as long as they're not white; criminalization of being gay; discrimination; exclusion; religious rights at the expense of everyone else's rights, and cannibalizing their own members as soon as one of them dares express a thoughtful contrary opinion.

No thank you. I'll stay right where I am.
