I understand.
But what is it? The free money? Against capitalism? Pro communism? Pro Abortion? Anti Abortion? Pro religion? Anti religion?

I imagine his position is more nuanced than that.

Trump aside, just curious to hear your opinion, why you seem to be so pro dems.
There is perception bias that amplifies views of mine you disagree with, but on the whole the Republican stance is predicated on religion and emotions like hate and fear so tends to make less sense (indeed their voters are drastically less talented/capable/accomplished by almost any metric used). Yes, it is easier for me to respect believers in Darwin than believers in the Trinity. I would still usually vote Republican on the whole because lower taxes are more important to me.



The free money? Against capitalism?  
Empathy

Pro Abortion? Anti Abortion?
Pro freedom

Pro religion? Anti religion?
Anti Christianity

(I don't know the context.)


I'll give you some -

Joe Walsh is the guy who said "If Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket"

Also, Borat got him to endorse a self defense program for kindergartners that included guns that looked like stuffed bunny rabbits

(1) on the whole the Republican stance is predicated on religion and emotions like hate and fear so tends to make less sense ((2)indeed their voters are drastically less talented/capable/accomplished by almost any metric used).

Do you have any data showing anything on points 1 & 2?

For (1), I'm not denying that there's some of that there, but in my experience, it's less on the right and more on the left.

For 2...can you give me examples of a few such metrics?

There is a decent chance DeSantis will lose reelection simply because his voters are being killed by Covid.

1. Are you really saying the left is predicated on religion more than the right? Abortion gays etc are all religious issues.

2. Wealth, health, what else?

Definitely not me.

With 92% of Dems vaccinated and only 52% of Republicans, we know who's dying.

2. Wealth, health, what else?

1)It was 2 months between my response and your post, so I'll give you a pass on not reading your own post that I was responding to. You were talking about more than religion. I'd also add that many liberals have beliefs that are religion-style, despite the lack of an actual god.

2) Source of this data?
