The Three G's: God, Guns, and less Gov't

The Republican Party seems to attract most of the single-issue voters. The big-ticket single-issue voter issues mostly fall under the Three G's.

Democratic voters generally hold a more balanced worldview and weight the issues proportionally. Say what you will about the single-issue simpletons, they are a reliable electorate engine for the MAGA machine requiring very little in the way of maintenance.

The fall of Roe may create an uprising of single-issue voters on the left, but perhaps that is being optimistic?

1. I thought it was god, guns and gays.

They are not for less government unless it is less for minorities and the poor. Plenty of big government for the military, big pharma and corporations.

7. Actually they are pushing for no government,

A dictator doesn't have to listen to Congress or the courts. They still need kangaroo courts for the unwashed.

8. Yes. They really want to do away with the IRS, Dept of Education, Public Health, etc.

Give all the power to the states. Do away with the entire federal government.

A dictator uses the courts to impose his will. And doesn't need the restraints of other agencies.
