Musk Tells 'Independent-Minded Voters', "Vote For Republican Congress"

The world's richest man is likely making no new friends among the
liberati and mainstream media this morning after he tweeted a
recommendation that "indepedent-minded voters" should vote for a
Republican Congress to ensure checdks and balances on the extreme
policies on both sides of the political divide in America...

    To independent-minded voters:

    Shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties, therefore I
recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency
is Democratic.

Musk added that:

    "Hardcore Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side,
so independent voters are the ones who actually decide who’s in

How long before we hear outrage that a billionaire owner of a giant
social media company would utter such obviously political rhetoric.

Remember this is very different from Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Bill
Gates, Reed Hastings, Marc Benioff, or even Jack Dorsey funding 100s
of millions of dollars into the 'right' political party, and
aggressively censoring any dissenting view.

Who could have seen that coming...

    Telling people to vote republican isn't balanced. Owners of social
media platforms shouldn't be political activists telling people who to
vote for with their massive platform

Right now a million virtue-signaling Tesla owners are angrily looking
up the Return Policy.
