I'm sure I'm not alone when I say I am really fearful of what the future of this country is. The Right is saying and doing things that I thought I'd never see. From the supreme court voting to abolish Roe and taking away a right to a woman's own body to what is being done in schools. I thought book banning went out decades ago along with burning witches at the stake. And for Rhonda Santis to say slaves benefitted from being slaves is outrageous. He is crazy but worse he is dangerous.
I am in Texas and totally ashamed of the governor. He is a trumpy wannabe and is harming as many people he can with legislation he has signed. He made ordinary citizens bounty hunters who could turn in anyone seeking an abortion or anyone helping that person seek an abortion and receive a huge reward. Among many other things, he removed any restrictions for owning a gun, including assault type rifles and now you can open carry a weapon anywhere you want. Even as young as 18.
I backed Beto O'Rourke in every election. In my opinion, he lost because Democrats didn't want to get off their butts and vote. It is one of the few things you can do to determine the direction of YOUR country! School Boards are being filled with right wingers who want to control what your kids learn, what they can wear and which restroom they can use. These are different times than even the last 10 years and being involved with every single election is important. It's important because those people move up the line from the school board to mayor and on to bigger and more powerful positions. Be active in your local elections because those people may soon be making decisions for more than just your kid's school and if you don't like them, vote them out! The ballot box is your voice. Use it!
