I think the Republicans have pushed the ball far enough down the field that they will be in position to radically change this country if they win the White House next year. They'll almost certainly be able to attain a majority on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe, which will then allow all these extreme abortion laws in the states to go into effect. They'll probably be allowed to get away with severely limiting voting rights without any challenge from the Department of Justice. Public-sector unions will be gone. The EPA will be rendered toothless. Entitlements will be gutted. Everything that isn't tied down will be privatized and corrupted.
There won't be anything compassionate about the triumph of conservatism. And it will be really hard to fix.
I don't think this is hyperbole. Do you?
No, I don't.
Case in point: Every Republican presidential candidate has to "kiss the ring" of a guy like Jim DeMint if they want to get the nomination. That in itself should scare the living day lights out of a reasonable person.
We really must pull ourselves together and do everything we can to stop a GOP presidency and GOP majorities. The nation will not look remotely the same if we don't and "no amount of clapping will bring us back from where they will send us."
