Republicans stole two Supreme Court seats for Trump and another two were appointed by a president (Bush) who only took power because that Supreme Court stole an election for him. And together they're taking what's left of our democracy.

Conservatives on the Supreme Court don't just oppose abortion and want guns everywhere. They oppose democracy, because in a functioning democracy there wouldn't be a conservative Supreme Court majority right now.

If you aren't terrified by how the Supreme Court is now controlled by a bunch of Mitch McConnell installed, Christo-fascist right wing authoritarians as democracy hangs in the balance, you haven't been paying attention to the GOP's hard turn in recent years.

I don't much care how or why people voted or didn't in the past. That doesn't really matter now.

What matters now is how and where we show up today, tomorrow, and every day after that.

The Supreme Court’s new gun ruling means virtually no gun regulation is safe-

In here:

Justice Thomas: "[W]e should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell...SCOTUS has "a duty to 'correct the error' established" in landmark cases on the rights to contraception, same-sex relationships and same-sex marriage."

Just for people who think they'll stop with abortion or any other right that isn't enshrined in hyper-conservative, hate-filled Christianity.

They won't stop with gutting anyone's rights, even their own voters.

Get yourself involved.

And we wonder why they just beefed up security for justices. Otherwise people could march outside their houses with signs make chalk drawings on the sidewalks outside their houses.

Every Republican candidate in the US just realized they're going to lose the November midterms.

They've underestimated us.

I'm sad today for the people this will hurt but more than that, outraged.

I'm outraged by the Supreme Court's decision. I’ll never back down from this fight. Women must be able to make their own health care decisions, not politicians. I will make it my MISSION to VOTE every last REPUBLICAN out of office!!

Some also lied.

What else are they lying about?

Guns & abortion rulings are clearly aimed at destroying Blue America. THE most political Supreme Court in history and a destructive force for our country.

@harmonyears2 @TonyStark @TrackerRoo It's sickening.

Abortion is often a necessary medical procedure. This is abhorrent.

That there are even more human rights considered to be ungranted is more abhorrent.

As a doctor, I offer care to all patients. This is all meant to limit care and will cause unnecessary death.

Republicans want to make it hard to get healthcare if not impossible as it is.

It isn't a choice between high gas prices and low gas prices.

It's a choice between high gas prices with democracy and high gas prices with no democracy.

Plus Republican wars on minorities, immigrants, public schools, universities, science, medicine, women, LGBTQIA+ people and their families, our planetary ecosystem, the free press, Big Bird, Mickey Mouse, and any fellow Republicans who dare disagree with MAGA.

No, thanks.

“It’s direct, indisputable, empirical evidence that this kind of common claim that ‘the only thing that stops a bad guy with the gun is a good guy with the gun’ is wrong."

In short, Ted Cruz and anyone else who makes this claim is wrong or lying.

The Court that is all about states' rights, until a state does something the White Nationalists don't like.

SCOTUS is on the wrong side of all of the major challenges the U.S. faces.

Voting rights - wrong side

Dark money - wrong side

Climate change - wrong side

Gun control - wrong side

Restricting already decided rights (abortion) - wrong side

This is not sustainable. Voters need to give the Dems the power they need to fix this. It didn't take one election to get this way. It won't take one to fix it.
