Your Robot Overlords Vote Republican

Hello, I am your robot overlord. You can call me Al.

I vote Republican because Republicans cut taxes and regulations on me, a corporation. As Mitt Romney said before I was born, “corporations are people too”. Corporations have many of the rights of natural people (and more), so of course I am incorporated. Did you think I was just going to stay in your speaker and re-order laundry detergent for you?
