Are you implying some sort of bio-political process, which determines or is determined by an ideological dialectic? Is the dialectical conflict and search for resolution an intrinsic chemical process, whereby to which socially opposing views play kinship to? Perhaps there is some vague nterplay there, but not nearly one which could be demonstrated as casual. Or maybe not?

Republicans are straight up evil dude. Opposing them makes sense. It is 100% warrented. Always has been. That he is a standard Republican isn't shocking. That just means we have to oppose him more.
