I vote republican 99.6% of the time and if people from other viewpoints discuss an issue civilly I usually have no problem with that. Most democratic voters I know actually mean well which is ironic. Now, if it’s a strong single issue voter like abortion or gun rights I don’t always agree but I can respect their positions.

I do have a problem with dishonest and pandering politicians. Unfortunately, that may be a completely redundant statement. So, in practice I have to pick what I think is less harmful in the long term. And that is far from obvious in the present due to 2nd and 3rd order effects.
