It's about time one of your tech bros was a Republican

It's a good question. He went from being a tech bro libertarian futurist to hardcore Trumpist. I can even understand why he might have supported Trump at the beginning, thinking that he could get in on the ground floor essentially and shape his administration. I don't know the end game for his efforts to defeat Liz Cheney.

What makes you say this?

He's supporting efforts to defeat Liz Cheney and recently had a fundraiser with Trump Jr. and a bunch of MAGA types.

I've seen a lot of people heading in that direction. I blame the democratic party for essentially falling apart at the seams.

He’s a libertarian who has decided that the Republicans are closer to his views than the Democrats are. Maximizing his profits matters more to him than the galloping sexism, racism, sectarianism, xenophobia, and anti-science attitudes of so many of his new compatriots.
