I’ve been inspired by you to turn in my absentee ballot today voting a straight Republican ticket.
Moral obligations
Jere Krischel

I’ve heard tens of variations of this claim: “I was completely openminded until liberals did this one thing, and now I must fully support the party of Trump.” It has never been credible. But I’ve never before had anyone pretend that the bad thing liberals did was me writing an essay.

I’m driven to oppose the party of Trump because of the actions of Trump, his administration, nearly every Republican member of Congress, and a large number of state officeholders. You’re supposedly driven to support the party of Trump because someone on the internet thinks that party is unredeemable. Excuse me if I don’t take this seriously.
