We can get out of this “conservative” nightmare—but there’s only one chance left
And Decent America must step up NOW
Well, Decent America, the religious whack-job and utterly ignorant church lady Samuel Alito, pictured above, and four of his religious-nut co-conspirators on the Supreme Court have done what “conservatives” have been plotting for forty years. For the first time in the history of the nation, they have actually reversed the arc of the moral universe.
That is despicable enough. But they are also part of the “conservative” con that has reached the point where it is tearing America apart.
So “conservatives” have always opted for the only path open to people who want something they should not have—deceit and intimidation.
Trump is their god because he embraces deceit and intimidation unabashedly. Ron DeSantis is their god-in-waiting for the same reason.
Enough with trying to demonstrate “conservative” ill will and evil-heartedness. We just need to get them out of the way.
Are you outraged that you or your female relatives no longer have bodily autonomy in the hell-hole red states, or that Republicans keep pushing guns into the hands of anyone who can come up with the cash to get one, or that minorities are still fighting for justice in the teeth of Republican unconcern about anyone but religious white people and corporate fat cats, or that the list of Republican outrages is nearly infinite?
What can you do with your outrage that will help? Unfortunately, no more can be achieved by protesting against people who don’t care about anything except power, by debating morons who lie through their teeth, by arguing with dimwits whose can’t tell a logical fallacy from a lump of feces. You may want to beat someone up, but doing harm to those who are all too ready to do harm to you only gives them another club to beat you with.
There is only one thing that you can do to make a difference.
And all of Decent America needs to commit to it today.
So if any of you have large followings on the internet or know how to create viral movements, I’d appreciate it if you would consider spreading this message to as many people as you can reach.
It is simply this:
You must commit to voting this November and you must vote against every Republican who appears on the ballot.
If all of Decent America would only do this one easy thing, the trajectory of this nation would change overnight. Decent America far outnumbers Scum America. It only looks like an evenly divided nation because “conservatives" are maniacal zealots who wield their votes like AK-15s, while liberals take American decency for granted and don’t go to the polls in proportion to their actual numbers.
A century ago, William Butler Yeats looked at the crisis of his time and accurately depicted the crisis of our own time:
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. William Butler Yeats, The Second Coming
Does Decent America lack all conviction? “Conservatives” are the minority. Decent Americans are the majority. If we will just vote against all “conservatives” and take their illicit power away from them, we can stop this retrogression immediately. A critical mass of non-Republicans in Congress would be able to neutralize the mendacious religious bigots on the Supreme Court by finally expanding the court with Biden appointees who could overturn the rulings of liars put us back on the path to a decent society. Gun laws could fly through Congress and be signed by a decent President. Minority protection laws could stand up nearly overnight.
We could have Decent America back again in short order.
I know it seems simple. It is. But it’s become clear to me that many people, especially young people, don’t connect the ballot with anything good and decent. Sometimes you have to tell people something unbelievably simple to get them to act.
And we have to act now. If we don’t achieve this now, America will be finished, since this fall Republicans intend to elect lying, power-hungry, vicious cretins into all the positions that run our elections. If we don’t stop them now, things will indeed fall apart, and Decent America will be ground under the heel of “Christian” fascism.
Can you help spread the word? Can you help reach enough Decent Americans before November to defeat “conservatism” at the polls this year?
It is still possible that we won’t have to live with the indecency of “conservatives,” if we can just fire up our conviction.
But if we don’t do it this November, we will never get the chance again.
