Republican Candidates spewing more garbage.
Did these people sleep through middle school civics classes? Or maybe they never had a civics class. You know, the part of the lesson on our American form of government, where we have checks and balances put in place to prevent abuses of power? So we have a legislature, an executive branch headed by the President - and a Judiciary. The judiciary has powers vested in it to block or stay rulings that it sees as improper, after sober, careful deliberation. This is for the protection of all the people, to prevent discrimination and oppression of the majority by some fanatical minority.
The ranting of these Republican candidates are downright frightening when one sees them applied to our laws in the future. Women will have no say in what happens to their bodies. Females will revert to what they were looked upon in the 1800’s, mere chattel, cattle for men’s whims. Gay marriage? Heck no. They will be chased back into the closet with handguns and tasers. Other civil rights? good luck there.
These forces have already overturned the Miranda ruling, which stated that police have to read a suspect their rights, and make sure they are understood. They have made it possible for a corporation to donate unlimited funds to a political campaign, thereby corrupting the process. More people are going to prison than ever, for minor offenses. Teenagers are finding themselves arrested for infractions that used to be dealt with by families or school officials. There is less community mental health being offered, and more incarceration. We are becoming more and more like a repressive communist society - a true police state!
The Tea Party Nazis won’t be satisfied until everyone is either imprisoned or is wearing 24-hour electronic surveillance (except them and their families). Our entire democracy is being destroyed by a few fanatics bent on imposing their own twisted will on everyone. Today the judges and women’s rights - tomorrow - who knows?
And we are telling countries like Iran and North Korea to get their act together? We need to deal with the fanatic lunatic tea partiers and other conservatives on our own shores first. Thanks for reading.
