When I can’t sleep, I close my eyes and count conservative supreme court justices falling into a volcano.

She can say she misspoke, but the audience applauded anyway.

"Victory for white life" sounds about right coming from the people afraid that Muslims, Jews, Black people, brown people, and immigrants are going to "replace" them. Force people to have babies they don't want! That worked out so well before 1973.

Fascists prove us once again that they have more money than brains!

Want to know why things are how they are? Take a look at gerrymandering.

Elitist SCOTUS judges like Kavanaugh can make all the patronizing statements about democracy they want. The right wingers on the SCOTUS have already made it more difficult for the voice of the voters to be heard.

That's how this is going on in a country where most people want gun control and abortion rights are are getting neither.

If every voter who truly cares enough to save abortion as a right really shows up to remedy it, we can install Democratic majorities in each state legislature and governor’s office. Barbaric restrictions to abortion only last as long as they’re protected. But it's going to take awhile, at least as long as it look to get this way.

Supreme Court Throws Abortion to an Unlevel State Playing Field-
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade shifted the abortion fight to state legislatures, where gerrymandering has given Republicans an advantage.

As Republicans seek to strip away our freedoms and liberties
- the freedom snd liberty to choose whether to use contraception or have an abortion
- the freedom and liberty to chose who we marry or have consensual sexual relations with
- we can stop them by throwing them out in Nov., for starters.

How many times can Senator Collins be “misled” by the same people, using the same script?

Senator Collins can join the Democrats to remove the filibuster and vote for codifying Roe and shoring up voting rights if this is really true. If she doesn't, we know she wasn't misled by fraud, but that she was an accomplice to it.

The rest of us can elect Democrats to the Senate who want to do the same thing. Forget about Manchin. His state isn't going to elect anything different and probably someone worse if he leaves.

Focus on winnable states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, North Carolina, or Georgia.

Every GOP troll or smug score settler who is trying to use this moment to sow division among 2022 Democrats wants a piece of the next fiasco.

Unite and vote blue in 22. Don't get hung up on coulda, woulda, shoulda.

If the Republican SCOTUS justices are originalists, the Heller case would be ruled unconstitutional. There no phrase "individual rights" in the 2A. The Founders meant solely well-regulated militia.

The problem with "Constitutional Originalism" is that the interpretations nowadays are bastardized based upon today's political views meaning it's not original at all, just another smokescreen used to promote various agendas.

The idea for right-wingers was to construct a modern idealized conservative state and pretend that it existed when the Constitution was signed. Then use that pretend world to justify whatever conservatives want.

"Leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention, America's largest Protestant denomination, stonewalled and denigrated survivors of clergy sex abuse over almost two decades while seeking to protect their own reputations, according to a scathing 288-page investigative report issued Sunday."

“The same energy that inspired many to stand for hours on hot pavements with signs, make numerous calls to their congressmen, march, and selflessly give countless funds must be the same energy implored to now demand early education, food assistance, and childcare relief,” Kori Porter, CEO, Christian Solidarity Worldwide—USA

This needs to be every single person who voted for the two minority presidents who put the votes to overturn Roe on the Supreme Court.

Funny, though, it's a small minority of anti-abortion people. Most of them say "private charity" or worse, "you got pregnant, it's your problem." Who is in favor of a strong social safety net? Oh, it's Democrats, who are largely pro-choice. Pro-choice people are the ones who are actually pro-family, which means supporting families who struggle to support themselves.

@MariaHill
Interestingly, all Republicans did since the Roe decision came out Friday is introduce more ways to squash people's given rights and threaten already marginalized groups.

It's not about the babies or their educational programs would be about paying for education, healthcare, prenatal care, and leave. They're not.

Too much mayo now can get you the death penalty.

And that’s what open carry does for society.

And somehow people having more guns everywhere seems like a great idea for Republicans.

Yet another reason for gun control. Impulse/self control, impatience, anger, all are major issues for people. Allow them to carry a weapon in public and this happens.

Let's make a prediction: not very long.

I think conservatives are going to find that the Constitution is just a piece of paper. Legitimacy in government stems from the people, not from fealty to a document from a bunch of pre-industrial slave owners. It worked in the past two centuries because we believed it did. They have shattered that belief.

They have flagrantly misused the inordinate power they have based on their overrepresentation in the Senate and Electoral College and have no desire to uphold norms or act as stewards in their minority rule.

You have one party that at the very least will leave your privacy alone. The other one is coming for all of it.

Why voting really does matter:

Hopefully, more states do this and it passes. It's the best of a bad situation for now.
