    Elon Musk says he will be crossing the aisle to vote for Republicans in
    the upcoming elections.

    Musk announced Monday that he would be voting for GOP candidates in the
    next election cycle after historically backing almost exclusively
    Democrats. He made the statement on an episode of the All-In Podcast at
    a Miami tech conference, as first noted by Business Insider.

    "I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically –
    overwhelmingly. Like I'm not sure, I might never have voted for a
    Republican, just to be clear," Musk said on the show. "Now this
    election, I will."

    "The issue here is that the Democrat party is overly controlled by the
    unions and by the trial lawyers – particularly the class action
    lawyers," Musk explained on the show. "And generally if you see
    something that is not in the interest of the people on the Democrat
    side, it's going to come because of unions – which is just another form
    of monopoly – and the trial lawyers."


    I agree with Musk. I always thought unions were necessary and a good opportunity for Americans to make good wages and have a good retirement.

    I changed my mind about fifteen years ago when I found out unions were
    allowing illegal immigrants to become members. By doing this they are
    denying American citizens the opportunity to become members and have a
    better life.

    He is also right about class action lawyers, they get all the money,
    and the people get a few dollars.

    I got a letter once from a class action lawyer that said I was entitled
    to to a hundred dollars from a class action lawsuit, that I new nothing
    about. I told him to keep the money, because I was sure he needed it
    more than I did.
