Thanks for your reply. Now here's my take:

The Republican Party has manifested itself into the anti-democracy party with no competent policies of governance. Gerrymandering, voter suppression, never-ending fear mongering boogey-man culture wars are what they have been reduced to at this point. Why would the RNC decide to boycott future Presidential debates unless you have no convincing policies, no meaningful solutions to real problems that Americans want to hear and be debated? No, instead they are banning books and even more absurd, "MATH books", stating they are critical race theory ideologies to somehow indoctrinate youths is beyond idiotic. But this is the Republican Party who's enacting these measures, no one else. The same party which now states the attack on the Capitol and events that lead to it as "legitimate political discourse?" WTF? The Don't Say Gay Bill, anti-LGBTQ measures, and now attacking institutions with swift punishing legislation upon institutions that disagree with them without regard to ramifications (Disney) shows their willingness to use them as an example to others that would challenge their authority.

Now we have, if true, the attack on a woman's constitutional right to choose an abortion (Roe vs. Wade that has stood since 1973) is downright scary to say the least. Lawmakers in Missouri weighed legislation early this year that would allow anyone individuals to sue anyone helping a patient cross state lines for an abortion. Same thing happened in Texas. If Roe is weakened or overturned, states will be more emboldened to enact this type of law and even worse prohibit women from being able to travel to exercise what they believe (and has been for decades), their right to choose for themselves.

What's next? Outlawing birth control? Same-sex marriage? Interracial marriage?

If you don't fit the category of being straight, White, and Christian then we will silence your voice one way or the other.

We shall see. In a bizarre way, I hope the SCOTUS does overturn Roe vs. Wade to unite and energize democrats, progressives, liberals, moderates, etc., to say enough is enough. Clarence Thomas tainting of the court certainly doesn't help the credibility of the court, now does it? I won't even get into the outright lies Mark Meadows, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Sean Hannity, other politicians, associates, etc., who have been completely busted on tape and text messages contradicting their oral statements. Many of them refusing to testify to the 1/6th committee. What's to hide? Why not do your part to come forward and tell what you know? We shall see. There's more evidence coming soon to support, what we already know. An orchestrated national coup attempt to overturn an legitimate election will be released in public hearings coming in June.

Yeah, just the tip of the iceberg here, but that's my take. ;\)


Both you and LGDB are right. The Republican Party is now an extremist party of anger and hate that embraces conspiracy theories and disbelieves science. They will do anything to win and keeping Garland from even coming up for a vote almost a year out from the election while simultaneously and hypocritically rushing Barrett through with a month before the election has resulted in the Supreme Court's awful reputation and terrible decisions. The Democrats are inept at communicating and governing and recognizing where their faults lie and so are having a hard time stopping the crazies.
