118. You Can't Combine The Two Logically.
If you don't want the republican to win, then you have to want someone else to win. Since in our current reality, the only other option is the Democratic candidate, then that want would be for the Democrat to win.

If one doesn't care if the Democrat wins or not, then they also must then not care if the republican wins or not. That's in essence not minding if the republican wins over the Democrat, since there was no care either way. And if they care about progressive causes, yet still don't mind if the Republican wins, then I say shame on them.

But you can't combine both. You can't not want the republican to win yet not care if the Democrat wins at the same time, as it would be a conflict of logic. I hope you see what I mean.
