Well - as 2021 closes, and I've read some recent news articles - I'll ask, "Where do you good folks think we're headed in 2022 and beyond??" Let me set the stage ..... A certain MTG has openly stated that she's in favor of a "national divorce" to separate red & blue states / people. This shipping barge of knowledge and "patriotism" also said any Democrats who move to "red states" must pay extra taxes for their "sins" and not be allowed to vote until they go through an undetermined period of time to "cool off." Jim Jordan and a number of GOP fascists are NOW spreading the story that Covid boosters don't work. That oozing of fictitious drivel will be - and has already been - consumed heartily by much the same crowd that a few years ago was ACTIVELY searching for vaccines to protect them against ........... zombies. The Walking Dead tv show had them convinced of a real "zombie apocalypse." Many of the "zombie-phobes" are already dead from a REAL, TRUE danger that has killed over 830,000 Americans. But hey ........... better to listen to politicians who - as we all know - are PILLARS of truth, decency, and scientific / medical knowledge. ( WHY is it that politicians are at the bottom of the public's trust / respect polls again & again & again?????? ) T**** and his loyal LEMMINGS are S-T-I-L-L trying to spread THE BIG LIE .......... and many American DOLTS are S-T-I-L-L sucking down the poisonous, fascist ooze of LIES as fast as they can lap it up. Private militias are arming themselves for the second civil war they so eagerly want. 73% of Republican citizens polled recently say they WANT an armed conflict, because they see armed violence as the only way to "take back" (???) the country. Take it back from what ...... Democracy???? New Jim Crow and voter suppression laws are being put in place by THE REPUBLICAN PARTY to cheat in future elections so they can't lose. Gerrymandering of voting districts is RAMPANT, and the purpose (for those who don't know or understand) is to shut out and/or minimize voters who aren't Republican. That way Republican politicians will win those districts, who'll then take even further steps to assure they never lose elections again. In many states with REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED STATE HOUSES, they've already created partisan REPUBLICAN election committees that will oversee, count, and determine WHO can vote and who can't. No outside, independent eyes are allowed to see the vote counting ........ and that's the way THE REPUBLICAN PARTY designed those election committees. (The "party" that claims it has nothing to hide ........ apparently does ......... and wants it to continue.) Ballot drop box numbers have been greatly reduced in voting districts where larger populations of Democratic voters live. That forces voters to drive many miles to drop an early ballot - or in case of pandemic - a ballot they fill out to avoid contact with large numbers of voters. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY in many states have restricted voting by mail to a small set of circumstances - thereby making voting for older Americans much tougher. The older Americans are the generation that fought in WW II to save the world from fascism - the cancerous plague that's invaded the U.S.A. to the shoulder-shrugs of many of its citizens. ("Oh ...... it'll never happen HERE." ) It's happening as you read this. Anyone want to try cheering me up??????????????
