Reasonable gun control laws

Climate change and science in general

Fair and equitable immigration laws

Black and brown people's rights

Police brutality

A livable minimum wage

Unions

Caring for veterans

Universal education

Separation of church and state

Homelessness, hunger, poverty

Taxing rich people

Clean air and water

A decaying infrastructure

Equal opportunity for all

Preservation of natural resources

Protecting endangered species

The Constitution of the United States of America

Human decency

Caring about the future of humanity

I'm sure I left plenty out, but feel free to add to the list. What I'm getting at here is that Republicans don't give seem to give a damn about anyone or anything but themselves and their own well-being. And fuck everyone else. It seems that they don't even care about the planet that they will leave to their own children and grandchildren. In short, there's something really fucked up in the minds of those who choose to be Republicans.

6. I wouldn't necessarily say they don't care about these things

In some cases, they care very much...it's just that they are against these things.

One of my uncles, for instance, cares very strongly about LGBT rights...he believes that these people are "against God," and should have no rights. Matter of fact, if there was a policy of exterminating homosexuals, I believe he would support it strongly.

Same with universal healthcare, education, and a living wage...to hear him talk, he cares very strongly about these things, and considers them all to be evil and communistic.

So, in his case at least, it's not only a matter of self-interest being his only guiding principle--he actively opposes human rights and equality based on his religious beliefs (I guess...). In fact, sometimes he seems to get so riled up, his own self-interest takes a back seat to his hatred of "others."
