"Big Govt" is GOP codeword for big democracy. How your vote levels the playing field and RW hates it

When Reich-wingers talk about their hatred for big govt, what they really mean is their hatred for high turnout voting. They hate the fact that voting can and does level the playing field.

Our votes can undo their grip on power.

Look at the GOP's assault on our right and ability to cast our ballots in the past 40 years and you'll see their relentless attacks on making it more difficult to cast a ballot.

Look at Trump's recent assault on democracy. He loathed the mail-in ballot with orange-faced hatred.

To right-wing fascist conservatives, voting is the "big govt" that they fear.

They don't fear big police states.

They don't fear big prisons.

They don't fear blank check deficit spending on the military.

They don't fear capital punishment and executions.

They don't fear big govt invading a woman's right to choose or her choice to use BC.

They don't fear making gay people just disappear.

But they do fear your right to vote.

Your right to vote IS the "big govt" that they fear.

Your right to vote levels the playing field and the GOP, Qanon, MTG, and every Trumpist hates you for it.

On a level playing field where almost everyone votes, should govt of the people ever be feared?

Yet that scares the shit out of almost every GOPer.

Vote and level the playing field. And scare the shit out of the GOP as a bonus.
