Elon Musk advises independents on WHICH party to support in Tuesday’s midterms… can you guess?

Elon Musk is offering a voting guide for those who are neither Republican nor Democrat that is hardly likely to please pro-censorship liberals who are already experiencing a nervous breakdown over his purchase of Twitter.

His pragmatic premise revolves around checks and balances in a divided federal government.

On Monday morning, the quirky and visionary billionaire who has added Twitter to his portfolio in the name of free speech posted this tweet to his nearly 115 million followers one day before midterm-election voting begins in earnest:

“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.”

In a follow-up message that further advocated Election Day expedience, the self-designated “Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator” asserted that “Hardcore Democrats or Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who actually decide who’s in charge!”

Although it’s difficult to know, and many Americans have already voted through early voting and/or mail-in balloting, Musk’s recommendation might prove more influential perhaps than endorsements handed out, for example, by liberal media mogul Oprah Winfrey.

As a precursor back in May, Musk — himself an Independent — prophetically explained that “In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party. But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican. Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold.”

A month later, he revealed that he voted for a Republican for the first time in his life.

The recipient was America First star Mayra Flores, who won a special election in Texas for a U.S. House seat and is seeking reelection in the Tuesday vote. “Massive red wave in 2022,” Musk added in a tweet.

Obviously, it remains to be seen if a red wave will actually materialize, but time will tell.

That same day, he admitted to being inclined to support Fla. GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis in the 2024 presidential election — assuming DeSantis, who is 44 and has a long political career still in front of him, runs that year or holds off to 2028 or beyond.

In April, in an expression of social media bipartisanship, Musk took to Twitter to declare that “For Twitter to deserve public trust, it must be politically neutral, which effectively means upsetting the far right and the far left equally.”

Even though content-related policies haven’t changed much, if at all, Democrats from Joe Biden on down, along with their stenographers in the corporate media, have lamented Musk’s purchase of Twitter, a platform that is currently subject to an advertising boycott by woke corporations succumbing to pressure from left-wing activist groups.

“A self-described centrist, Musk has grown increasingly outspoken about his political views ahead of this year’s elections. The billionaire has drawn intense criticism from Democrats, such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, as he overhauls Twitter’s business and content moderation practices,” the New York Post noted.

“Extremely messed up! They’re trying to destroy free speech in America,” Musk said of the advertising situation.

Musk, who in the past has described himself as a free-speech absolutist, is on record for criticizing the Biden administration’s economic policies.

He has gone through what might appear to be a political evolution of late.

In an August dinner meeting with GOP bigshots, Musk reportedly said “that the country would prosper if Republicans ‘stayed out of people’s bedrooms’ and Democrats stayed ‘out of people’s wallets,’ according to attendees,” Axios reported at the time.

Around the same time, Musk tweeted that “To be clear, I support the left half of the Republican Party and the right half of the Democratic Party!”

Parenthetically, the progressive cohort was generally silent when Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post news organization in 2013.
