    Elon Musk, admitting he had voted "overwhelmingly" for Democrats in the past, has changed his mind.

    Musk is registered as an independent voter; he announced the switch over video link at a tech summit in Miami, Florida, hosted by the All-In podcast.

    "I have voted overwhelmingly for Democrats, historically," Musk acknowledged. "Like I'm not sure, I might never have voted for a Republican, just to be clear. Now this election I will," Newsweek reported.

    Musk's metamorphosis from voting Democrat to voting Republican could have been documented by actions over the last two years.

    In July 2020, Musk issued two tweets tweaking the Left. The first likely confounded members of the Left confident that their support for attacks on America, whether physical (riots, looting) or philosophical (the 1619 project) was shared by everyone in the so-called center of the political spectrum. Musk tweeted, "The left is losing the middle."

    Musk followed 25 minutes later with another tweet attacking the father of communism, Karl Marx, writing succinctly, "Das Kapital in a nutshell," followed by a picture of Marx with the statement in quasi-German, "Gib me dat for free."

    In May 2020, Musk famously tweeted, "Take the red pill."

    In the film "The Matrix," the hero, Neo, is offered a choice between a red pill and a blue pill; the red pill would free him from a dream-world imposed on humanity and let him see reality. Some conservatives aver that taking the "red pill" means for a former liberal or leftist to embrace the conservative philosophy. As an opinion piece in Fox News explained in 2017:

    The mainstream media failed to see the rise of Donald Trump in 2016. Now it's overlooking another grassroots movement that may soon be of equal significance- the growing number of liberals "taking the red pill." People of all ages and ethnicities are posting YouTube videos describing "red pill moments"-personal awakenings that have caused them to reject leftist narratives imbibed since childhood from friends, teachers, and the news and entertainment media.

    In April, Musk expressed his repugnance for those who would address war by using catch-phrases or words rather than action, reacting to a nightclub in Berlin that posted the word "PEACE" in giant letters while the war between Ukraine and Russia raged on. Musk tweeted, "They wrote PEACE on the wall at Berghain! I refused enter."

    He continued, "Peace. Peace? I hate the word. Those who do care about peace (myself aspirationally included) don't need to hear it. And those who don't care about peace? Well ..."
