And if the Republicans get their wish, that is how it will be here as well. Think I’m wrong? Read their speeches, look at their actions and policies. They are desperate to maintain political power and relevance and are willing to do anything to get and maintain it. Even if it means shredding the very fabric of the government to do this. What happened on January 6, may have been instigated by Trump, but it was the direct result of Republican policies beginning in the 1930’s of and 1940’s and their opposition to Roosevelt and the New Deal and has continued ever since. When they are campaigning, they are not really going against a Democratic opponent, but are campaigning against the New Deal, the Civil Rights Movement, Women’s Rights, Brown vs the Board of Education, Voting Rights, even education. They can care less about abortion, the only reason they are in favor of repeal is that they want that vote and banning abortion is another means for reestablishing patriarchal and hierarchical control which confines women to the home, reinforces gendered normative sand stereotypes, and renders women second class citizens, not much above being owned by male household heads. This cartoonist needs a reality check big time. The fact that you criticize Russia, but are silent about it here means that you condone, if not openly support, what is happening here. When I get to hell, as many have already told me that is where I am going, and for many reasons, including my dissertation topic, of all things, I will be sure to save a seat for all of you silently and openly condoning what the Republicans are turning this country into.
