I’m all out of charity for the GOP politicians

A more…eloquent(?) way of putting what I’ve said before: Try as I might, there’s no charitable reading of the current GOP plan. There’s no understanding them as doing good with some different values or set of knowledge. I could see why a good-hearted person would vote for things I find abhorrent (anti-abortion bills, anti-gay bills, pro-trickle down bills, etc.)

The only explanation for this is a mix of
1. Abandoning any idea of good for people and just using the law to attack political opposition and
2. Abandoning explaining away pro-wealthy and pro-ownership class policies as good for everyone and just ignoring almost all of the population entirely.

Conservative defenses welcome. (A conservative defense of raising income taxes would be interesting.)
