Each day, I get more and more depressed and irate as I listen to the poison and filth spewing from the GOP 'candidates' mouths. They are feeling more and more emboldened to advocate for revoking basic human rights. And there's no visible push-back!
This war on women is the most depressing of all! State by state - women's healthrights are being legislated away!! How could we have let the government force their way into women's genitals!! How did this all happen?? How did we lose a whole century, in terms of women's rights? How did the people who advocate 'small government' - turn into 'big brother' under our watch?
On my dog walk this AM, I met two, TWO, people who were relocating outside the US - permanently- because they couldn't stand to live in this atmosphere of hate and slander another moment. They are willing to give up their passports, if they have to!!
So----- I ask ----- Where is the outrage?? Why are moderates so quiet, while our very freedoms are being attacked? Why aren't there huge demonstrations; marches; boycotts; speeches at the Capitol, etc. Martin Luther King, Jr. must be turning over in his grave. He knew about peaceful protests! He wrote the book. He would take up the cause!
How do we light a fire under these complacent moderates? Do they really think the GOP can't win? WRONG!! The right-wing extremists will creep out of the woodwork to get their candidate elected..... They seem to be falling apart now.....but we'd be foolish to think they can't fire up their 'base' and organize.........and their base is huge!
We have to begin to fight back.....in a big way. There is so much at stake!
(Whew.....I needed that!!................)

You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
Happy is the day I'm pain-free
