This has been rattling around my soul, inchoate. Today, it came together. It’s nothing much, but maybe others will find it helpful.
I was a single-issue voter for a while in the 80’s, but then I notice some fools and rogues checking the “Pro-Life” box, and that most Republican “Pro-Lifers” were insincere and/or utterly tone-deaf to all overtones or undertones. So I now vote pro-life, but with more discernment.
I will not vote for Donald Trump just because he checks the “Pro-Life” box (and “Religious Freedom” box), especially since all he really means is “anti-abortion” (and “suck up to Evangelicals”). Same goes for Republicans more generally.
The Trump Party has destroyed even my presumption in favor of The Thing That Used To Be The GOP.
