The point to remember is that despite any gerrymandering, voter suppression, or what have you people still vote for the talking heads of their ideology or political stance. Which in this case is bat guano. But bat guano in bat guano out. For whatever reason people out there feel gays shouldn’t be able to marry, poverty is just a fact of life, and that guns are the pillars of what makes Merica awesome. Of course they have much nicer names for their stance like defense of marriage rather than gays are icky so they need to go away act. Because the first sounds much nicer and you can really get behind that.
Whether it be the faux noise machine, religion, or whatever people believe that the fringe far rights ideas are the way to go. So they vote and it's enough of a percentage that it makes an impact to challenge what I consider rational, equal rights, and actual laws that make since. People buy what the far right are selling and happily fuck their fellow man at the voting station. IMHO that is the root of the problem and why we need vigilance in the first place. Yet.. good luck educating people about their views and beliefs.
LMAO to prove my point someone is reading this right now and is thinking that I am just some weak liberal who is going to ruin the country because I like the idea of helping people and taking action to ensure everyone has a slight chance of avoiding poverty, not getting shot in public gathering areas, and that all enjoy equal rights and privileges. Rather than just hiding behind the constitution and shrugging the whole concept off as this is how it is and it is normal procedure to be shot in a movie theater on a Friday night while minding your own business. That America (not Merica) is a country that says if you are not like me then you don’t get to enjoy the rights and privileges that I enjoy because they are not for you, my god says so.
To wrap this mess up on a positive note though so far the country isn’t buying what the fringe is selling and attempts to take us back to 1930 have failed. So most people don’t actually suck and care about humans/humanity enough to call BS on the talking heads of hate.
