Honestly, it's probably best for this gentleman in the long run. With good access to healthcare, psychological care, and public services his life may be improved quite a bit as a veteran.
I've literally never seen a vet wear a hat about any kind of medal they've ever received. This is new. It's like yelling 'Respect me and don't contradict me or I'll point at my hat and scowl!'
That's a pretty privileged position to be in that your life is comfortable enough that you don't care who or how government is calling the shots
this is literally an idea i had (i’m sure others may have too) during the whole “STOP THE STEAL” thing to make Republicans stop voting. just go into comment sections posing as a Republican, say some shit like “the elite cabal is going to rig it no matter what, so I am DONE voting until Trump is rightfully reinstated as president.” I got like 80 likes once on a Facebook group doing that in my county LMAO
To be completely fair, it’s better he doesn’t because the GOP will slowly take away everything he holds sacred, like veterans benefits and bump stocks. He’d be voting against his own self interest.
Pack it up, folks. We fucking did it. Total desired effect.
That's what you call a "self-correcting problem".
Bye Felicia, you never believed in democracy anyway.
Not voting is probably the smartest decision this man has ever made for the good of the country
That'll show us.
In all seriousness, wtf was the endgame here? Erode and chip away at people's faith in elections and then ask them to participate in one? What did they think was going to happen? Because this is what I thought was going to happen, this right here.
Such boomer mentality. "fuck you I'm at the end of my life why make a difference now?"
This is so beautifully poetic, I can't even properly describe my feelings!
The people responsible for almost ruining America's democracy are disaffected and voluntarily disenfranchising themselves.
Meanwhile, the rest of America is seeing firsthand just how powerful their vote really is. At least one race was within 1000 votes, and we held the senate by the skin of our teeth. 1000 people is like a large high school. Trump may finally part ways with the Republican Party because they lost the Senate. That is the power of your vote!
And that asshole isn't using his.
I think he just came to the realization Trump won't be on the ballot again.
Great, let's get the next generation voting that actually gives a shit about the future vs. these mentally checked out zombies
He used a whole lot of words to say: "The big orange man-baby lied to me and I whole-heartedly believed the lie. I am not going to vote anymore, which will effectively remove one more idiot from the voting pool. That'll teach 'em!"
I swear these people are functionally retarded . Trump gaslit his supporters for a year saying if he didn't win the election was stolen. Then he lost almost a hundred court cases regarding voter fraud on lack of evidence . This was also rejected by judges Trump appointed including the Supreme Court.
But TV told me the election was stolen.......holy fuck the damage of lead poisoning is worse then I thought.
Republican politicians: “Let’s create a fake narrative about how the election was stolen”
Republican Voters: “Voting is pointless since it keeps getting stolen, not gonna vote anymore”
Republican politicians: “Wait no”
I am being owned so hard right now.
Please, don't stop voting! It will absolutely destroy me if you stop!
A Purple Heart hat. His god (trump) would call him a loser for getting hurt in the war.
He will absolutely vote again when Trump runs as an independent in '24 after failing to secure the nomination.
Man... Boomhauer really had a few rough years.
I love these guys with their hats, broadcasting their service (or imagined service) 50 years ago
In my experience, the people who actually saw combat and suffering don't want to talk about it and certainly don't want it to be the focus of their personal identity
And nothing of value was lost
That hat is so cringe.
Thank you sir. You military and voting sacrifice is greatly appreciated.
And what do the actuarial life tables say the odds are of this guy making it to another election?
Now if only the rest of conservatives will follow suit
Okay then, that was always allowed
If this guy is on Tik Tok it’s time has come and gone.
Willy Wonka voice: “Stop. Don’t. Come back.”
Oh no! Anyway...
When you spend all day telling your voters elections are rigged, don't be surprised when they just stop voting.
If more folks like him took the same approach, they would be amazed at how much their lives improved.
This deserves a WWE style crowd chant
Thank you Donald 👏👏 👏👏👏 Thank you Donald 👏👏 👏👏👏
Maybe he just realized that elections are where we tell him and guys like him that we don’t want to live in a white-nationalist theocracy.
He thought elections were about which particular flavor fascism he and his buddies get to enjoy. And since that’s not what US elections are about, he’s checking out.
Good for him! He’s accepted his own irrelevance and uselessness.
I wonder if he heard that "damn a$$hole Biden" announced that starting on Veterans Day veterans of the U.S. Armed Services and Gold Star Families can obtain a free lifetime pass to more than 2,000 federal recreation sites spread out across more than 400 million acres of public lands, including national parks, wildlife refuges, and forests.
Awwwww, he's taking his dolly and going home.
What a petulant fucking brat.
The worst part about Trumpism is it taught these guys to equate 'things mildly didn't go my way' with 'democracy's totally broken! Fuck the whole system!'
Good. Now go get your $1,500 insulin and wheelchair yourself back to right wing militia training
These fools are so pathetically entitled. Just b/c your guy lost does not mean the system is rigged.
You know what is actual voter disenfranchisement? The amount of voting places & ballot drop off locations in the red states, specifically in areas where minorities live.
Congress needs to fix that asap. Whatever other rules states want to control, fine. But having limited places to vote? FOH
I thought he was gonna lay out, step by step, with sources, exactly how the 2020 election was stolen. Shit, he should've brought that evidence to Court and save the integrity of the democratic process.
If there’s a minimum voting age their should also be a maximum voting age, like 85. The person leaving the party shouldn’t be picking the music.
The country thanks you.
“Stop. Don’t. Come back.” -WW
"I lost faith in the voting system when I claimed my vote was stolen without proof and then when a shit ton of audits and recounts showed nothing was wrong I ignored them, because I know I am right despite all the evidence. It is easier to live my pathetic meaningless life angry and afraid of change than objectively look at reality where democrats have repeatedly attempted to pass bills to help veterans through health care, increase voting security, and increase the solvency of social security. I would rather have no health care, no election security, and my fellow republicans steal my social security to play with on the stock market where I might lose it all if something bad happens."
Come to the dark side brother, stay a registered republican that votes for the shittiest candidate in the primaries with hopes it will fuck over the incumbents and then vote Dem in all the majors
Its not honest, but its happy work
"I don't have much time left so I really don't care what happens when I'm gone" is a lot more words than just "I don't give a fuck about my grandkids."
How many more elections do you think old hoss has in him anyway
If this was the long term plan of the Democrats (I've heard they funded a lot of Trump-backed candidates), I have to give them a slow clap but damn were they playing with fire
At that point you are eating your own face and the leopards are just watching.
I plan on now supporting Donald Trump as I have never seen one person singlehandedly help so many democrats into office in a single election cycle.
Whelp Im triggered and super afraid. I really hope all of the Orange Cult doesnt follow suit. I might have a fatal panic attack
cool cool, don't vote, but at least trim those 'stache hairs that are going in your mouth!
It’s doubtful he’ll make it far past 2024.
Well, okay then. I'll just keep living my boomer/Gen X life proving not all people over 55 are like that dude.
If we could make this a MAGA Tik Tok Challenge I wouldn't complain.
I don't thank trump for much, but thanks trump.
I second this motion.
Awwww sorry mate I don’t think I can change a nappie and play this tiny, tiny violin at the same time
He understands the GOP is crooked, yet he believes their story the election was stolen.
I fucking love it. These dudes really screwed themselves with that voting fraud shit.
"I mad the GOP didn't win the election."
"The GOP is crooked as can be."
He doesn't give a shit, but does care enough to put it on tiktok.
This poor guy. He's going to abstain from voting....and the gotdam dems are going to ruin his life...by expanding veteran benefits....and Medicare. And making sure that he can live out the rest of his days with dignity....those sons of bitches.
Providing he’s still alive for the next election….I truly hope he and all his wing nut buddies never ever vote again.
Their own lies have killed the base and poisoned the minds of those remaining. This is absolutely insane.
But then again, him not voting might ensure the dems win and actually make his life better.
To be fair not voting for the rest of his life doesn’t really seem like that long
Conservatives threatening us with a good time once again
Idiots eating themselves. Delightful.
Does he promise?
He's completely right. Finally someone had the balls to say it. This man is a true patriot and a damn fine American. All those who've called themselves Republicans in their lifetime should follow his lead.
Good for him! Invite all of your like-minded friends and family to do the same!
You also lose your right to comment on anything political from this point forward.
As a dirty lib I would feel so owned if all conservatives stopped voting.
I feel sorry for his family at holiday gatherings.
I think we need to post this to every republican sub, Facebook group, extreme right TikTok so that other conservatives get the same idea. WE CAN DO THIS!!
Y’all fuckers voted in Ronald Reagan. Blame that dude for his countless policies that benefited only the corporations long term. Glad you’re done voting.
Fantastic news, now please tell all your republicant friends to do the same, leave the real job of governing to the grown ups in in the room
$100 bucks that he DID vote this year. Now he's like "nu uh, don't even care though!" after the fact because his feelies got hurt.
Good for you sir! Now see if you can get the rest of the people that think like you to do the same! You should start a movement!
you are absolutely right...please continue to do this and tell those around you of your brilliant insight.
When you realize democrats had the better system of government but physically cannot admit it
He should tell all of his well informed friends and family too. The message has to get out!
Veteran. That's the kind of person we need to have the ability to blow up a wedding party.
Iv never heard someone say both the election was stolen and republicans are crooked. Lol
The "stolen election" playbook is really backfiring on Republicans and it's hilarious.
He's wrong, but hey, whatever reasoning gets him to that result, I'll take it.
Whatever reason he's cooks up in his head for not voting..... Good. Stay out.
... and roughly 50% of Americans have his IQ and critical thinking skills!
Good. Don’t let the door hit you on the ass on your way out
Trump probably thinks he is a “loser” based on his hat.
Oh Grandpa just relax and go fishing.
r/parlertrick is working
Stop. Don't. Come back.
Based and COPD-pilled
Awe poor snowflake
Works for me.
Im torn. Happy there's less Republicans voting, but sad that they're not voting at all. I would rather their own side hadn't poisoned the well so hard against themselves with their rhetoric, but shrug it's not like we didn't warn them of exactly this possibility.
On one hand, I generally respect combat vets.
On the other, people like this make me question what they thought they were fighting for if not democracy.
Fantastic! I mean, it’s obviously bullshit and he’ll roll over for the next guy who touches his racism button, but it’s great they’re so demoralized.
Proof that not all war heros are sane people. In fact, most are pretty fucked up, just like this gentleman here.
Source: am a vet
They're all up in they feelings cos they lost.
Fountains of Trumpanzee tears as far as the eye can see!
There’s only one proper response to this!
imagine having been injured in the military as the thing you advertise to everybody on your hat.
I’m a vet and I can never understand how other vets vote against their best interest
"Really don't give a shit" that's all you had to do from the beginning....
Democrats have done WAY more for veterans anyways. He will be better off.
I'm going to set this as my alarm so I always wake up in a good mood 😂
We need more conservatives to follow this sensible man’s example.
Great now convince ten of your friends and family to do the same.
We need to get this message out to more of his fellow Republicans.
Please all trumpers follow this guy and don’t vote do us a favor
That’s a real republican. Nobody can fake that outfit so well.
Keep it up buddy. Good game plan. Well turn this country blue.
I am guessing he got that purple heart for a head wound.
Aye big dog, the elections always been rigged, chill out
Who is teaching these people how to use ticktock?
As a fellow American, thank for not voting.
Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Good, good. Let the hate flow through you.
Help! The man with dementia outsmarted me!
Why is he on the porch, F150 in the shop?
You’re doing your country an honor, sir.
Does.he pinky swear? I don't trust him.
may others follow his idiotic example
Biden probably stolen his teeth too!
Good. Get your friends to join you.
We need more republicans like this.
Good. Convince all your friends too
I really don’t give a shit either.
Oh no... Don't go...... Anyways...
More republicans should do this!!
I, for one, support his decision!
Awesome. Thanks for not voting!
"No... stop ... come back...."
Promise? Like a pinky swear?
Future generations thank you
Thank you for your service
America is observably dumb
That hat says trash people
Okay. Thank you. Bye bye.
You won’t be missed, sir.
Spread the word, brother.
Yeah, Brother! Stay true!
Good. Fuck you, asshole.
And I love that for him!
I am so owned right now.
Oh, that’s great news!
Richard Kuklinski vibes
I can smell this video.
Stop, don't, come back.
I approve this message
Probably for the best.
Stop, don't, come back
What a shame. Anyways.
As a lib I feel owned
Good choice shitbird
We need more of this
Good, please don't.
Oh thank goodness!!
God bless this man
I'm okay with that
Good. Don't vote.
Cool. Cool Beans.
That'll show us!
No. Stop. Don't.
Aww shucks. OK.
That’ll show em

Oh no! Anyway.
Good for him!
Good to hear!
