I'm not sure about the spawn of Satan or Chicago Bears fans, but I generally agree that Republicans are born with some sort of mental deficiency that causes them to be inherently evil. The silly notion that there's something noble about being an independent voter carries no weight for me.
If John Smith decided to run for office under his newly created "KKK Party" or "Communist Party" I wouldn't feel obligated to explore his personal political positions before deciding whether to vote for him. His party affiliation, in and of itself, is enough to let me know that he is not a reasonable man or candidate. Likewise, anyone running on the Republican ticket, at least since about the mid-1990's, is tacitly or expressly approving of the tactics and policies of a political party which has devolved into utter repugnance.
I don't need any information other than your Republican Party affiliation to know that you're a poor candidate and a deeply flawed human being.
