When you vote republican you vote for a known pack of thieves and crooks. Trump was born a thief and his daddy taught him how to be the perfect crook and Trump has passed his knowledge on to his kids.
Tax/spend government advocates tend to reverse the logic of ownership to justify intervention. When the GOP cuts taxes, they are not 'stealing' from entitlements, which are rightful property of those who receive the entitlement spending.
Now, I am not actually totally opposed to tax-spend government, but I do acknowledge that it amounts to theft, sort of like taking someone else's credit card and using it and then letting them get stuck with the bill.
If you understand it this way, you use the power of tax-spend government more conservatively. You don't, for example, take someone's credit card and use it to invest and fiscally-stimulate the economy so you can grow the economy to include others.
What you do instead is explain that you need certain basic necessities to survive, such as food and basic shelter; and you give property-holders the opportunity to come up with a less-costly means of providing those basic necessities. You don't let people starve or go homeless, but at the same time you also don't abuse social spending to enrich contractors/developers and grow GDP as a byproduct of waste-spending.
GOP may waste money in things like military budgets, so you may be right that voting for them is like voting for a thief as well, but traditionally they are the party of fiscal conservatism so it would be very difficult to vote for the party of the anti-Republican South and New Deal Socialism without supporting tax-spend growthism and the role it has come to fulfill within the global economy.
What we really need is an economic reform movement that's simultaneously a sustainability reform movement as well. Ironically, that is what Trump's tariffs are moving toward, insofar as reducing global shipping holds potential to reduce overall fuel waste (ocean shipping uses huge amounts of fuel/energy). Trump doesn't actively promote environmental restoration and reductions in industrial activity and infrastructure necessary for sustainability progress, but in a way he does by shifting the burden for infrastructure funding to the local level, where people are more cautious with their spending than when they are spending federal money that they perceive as coming from 'richer people elsewhere.'
