- I went as a relatively well-off, mostly white male, born into socioeconomic privilege and living a life generally devoid of the insidious effects of poor health, poverty and a lack of access to a good education.
- In keeping with the part I directed all my strength and will towards depriving others less fortunate than me of the most basic means of survival: access to healthy foods, quality healthcare, and even the ability to freely vote for elected officials — while hiding behind the part of my costume that was wrapped in the Constitution.
- Accompanying me as I made my rounds was a lunatic right-wing fringe which went farther than I normally would in carrying out and achieving the tasks delineated in point #2, and I was okay with it.
- I only went to the houses that would give me billions of dollars to spend on the military while skipping those that wasted precious taxpayer dollars on things like food stamps, campaign finance reform efforts and the delivery of near-universal healthcare.
- On occasion I played into the most base fears of the most ignorant of my constituents, convincing them that things like race, ethnicity and religion should absolutely count when judging a person’s character — and, because the Constitution says so, I let them yell these beliefs as loudly as possible, ensuring that whatever voice of sensibility I had left was adequately drowned out.
I went as the GOP.
