RegisterThe 50-year-old billionaire recently said he would reverse Twitter's ban on former U.S. President Donald Trump, a Republican, when he buys the social media platform. He also said Twitter is far-left-biased because it is headquartered in California, a state known for its progressive politics.

Musk has been a vocal critic of the Biden administration and Democrats for their proposals to tax billionaires and give more tax incentives to union-made electric vehicles. Tesla does not have unions at its U.S. factories.Last year, Tesla, which counts California as its biggest market in the United States, moved its headquarters from California to the more politically conservative Texas.

So what. If you genuinely stand for the People and for the Nature , You will the King and the Leader in the World 🌎 You don't need any special strategy to make money ! But money 💰is not God 😊 vr_oswald Democrats are not the party of hate (we). We care. Take a better look at Republicans for hate please.

took him long enough. Disenchantment And this guy is considered smart? 🤣 Who’s really surprised now if all the democrats that bought his crappy car’s would stop he’d be out of business lol Who cares? If you change your politics just because Musk does you don’t deserve your vote. This is worth reporting because he is well respected as a thought leader?

As expected. Ha shocking 🤣

Elon Musk says he'll vote Republican, bashes DemocratsMusk has been historically anti-union, opposed to a billionaire's tax, and a vocal critic of President Biden. “If a person is not a liberal when he is twenty, he has no heart; if he is not a conservative when he is forty, he has no head.’ OR ‘If my son is not a liberal when he is twenty, I will disown him; if he is not a conservative when he is forty, I will disown him then.’-John Adams Watch Tesla sales tank. Maga isn’t the cohort buying EV’s He wants more tax break to buy Twitter!!

Olha eu sou um simples taxista há 40 anos que é meu só isso ! , E outra só falo português , é isso This is true 'entitlement'. Thinking that 'you' made money in a vacuum. Just the contribution of the people that worked to build our highways for his vehicles is WHY 'you' pay tax. (not to mention the vets, the slaves, the Native Americans, etc. that died for this country.)

I sympathize w/elonmusk completely. In my opinion, Democrats have become far too extreme. It's like they've become the Democrat version of the Tea Party (anyone remember them?) Personally however, I don't entirely trust Republicans either - which is why I've become Independent. So the ocean is wet? Fire continues to be hot? Corporate welfare grifter Musk never supported Democrats

He is republican...as always only two choices (in America)? democracy shouldn't be binary should it? We Dem's don't need the 1% to vote our way. So he votes party, not the individual. Good to know even the rich are so narrow minded. He already did. And has been for a long time. Supporting a party that condones a attack on our capital. Maybe 🤔 Musk should go back to South Africa.

My next car WILL be electric. My next car WILL NOT be a Tesla. I call this regenerative braking

Elon Musk says he'll be voting Republican in upcoming election, possibly for first timeMusk said he has previously 'voted overwhelmingly for Democrats.' Democrats we're cool until they got hi-jacked by China and Russia (I don't have proof, js) Hmmm, trial lawyers and unions are a real big problem for non-billionaires. (Sarcasm) The middle class wants affordable healthcare and financial security. Unions benefit the middle class, but don’t benefit oligarchs.

Of course Mr. Apartheid would embrace the party of white supremacy. CindyDB89 I read that at least 11 GOP governors are resisting any EV incentives...is this about his bottom line, again? He's openly admitting to being a fascist then. That's what the modern republican party stands for now. They are actively anti-democracy.

Long Time Maga No One Cares Rich ideology is money 💰 wherever money goes switch sides. No exceptions. What a completely predictable turn of events. I’d respect it more if he just said “I don’t wanna pay more taxes” as the reason. Because we all know that’s what it is.
