The same Supreme Court, meanwhile, makes voting difficult, makes it easier to suppress votes, and allows biased non-mandating that mocks equal representation. The Senate is so breathless undemocratic Five of the six Republican-appointed judges were confirmed by a Republican majority with fewer votes and less representation than a Democratic minority.
There are ways to reduce inequalities in our system: state status for Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, if they wish, Supreme Court extensions and time limits, federal restrictions on biased gremandering, etc. But that would not be the case if historical trends were maintained and Republicans took control of the House or Senate.
What’s worse: Grabbing our land is not enough. we have to Benefits Seats to break and disable Senate logjam. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kirsten Cinema of Arizona. We also need the throne, because the roadmap for 2024 is tough, and unless President Joe Biden changes his approval rating, a Republican trifle will be the end of the rights we’ve given up. They will not even need the Supreme Court at that time.
So yes, when voting has proved so impotent to this point, it is difficult to debate voting as a solution. And there’s something else I feel visually: the inability of our supposed majority. In fact, it feels like we are in the minority. Because functionally, we are. And I can feel that – not only from the politically engaged people, but also from the types of people who only work around the time of the presidential election. I feel it in between Non-political.
It feels like November 2016, when Trump “defeated” Hillary Clinton despite receiving three million fewer votes.
We all know what history says about the midterm elections – the party that controls the White House usually shuts down, especially during the first term of the new president. There are many reasons for this, such as the President’s inability to deliver on the campaign promises made by our broken Congress. But the biggest reason is simple – the minority Inspires The Tea Party movement emerged after the election of Barack Obama. Opposition erupted after the election of Donald Trump. After Biden’s victory, QAnon hit hard, increasing the school board’s opposition to the mask and “CRT” boogieman.
In the meantime, the majority are satisfied. “We won, mission accomplished!” This, along with dissatisfaction with the pace of achievements, leads to a dilemma where the opposition is too motivated and mobilized, the party in power is poor. More often than not, a wave of elections wipes out opponents of legislative power.
Who is in the minority today?
Republicans, of course. Democrats control the presidency, the House, and nominally the Senate.
But who is as a matter of fact In the minority today? we are.
Every liberal who cares about gun safety, abortion, key privacy rights, keeping the orthodox theological agenda out of our lives. We can’t even protect public health in the meantime An ubiquitous epidemic Because of these conservative ideologues. We cannot even have this term of the Supreme Court, as the court can literally take away the power to protect our environment from the Environmental Protection Agency (in a decision that would end the power of the federal government agency).
Even if we win Senate seats and get rid of Phillipsster next year, will the Supreme Court grant DC state status? Will they allow a real voting rights bill? Absolutely not! This is a reconstituted court, inventing absurd logic to push its unpopular agenda on virtually all Americans. Nowadays, the plain text of the Second Amendment has been changed to “well-regulated militia”, thanks to a supposed “fundamentalist”, right in a perverted blanket for all gun fetishists threatening society.
It visually feels that we are in the minority because we are in the minority.
That’s how November puts us in an unfamiliar realm. Yes, Biden is infamous. Yes, inflation and gas prices are high. Yes, history says that out of power the party wins seats. But it is the party out of power that is winning at the moment. The rules are being rewritten.
Republicans have benefited greatly from their single-issue abortions and gun owners. Evangelicals may love Trump today, but they were actually unhappy with the immoral philanthropist who broke off his charity and had sex with a porn star while his wife was at home with their child. It did not stop them from voting for him, because abortion. Nothing else matters. Liberals, meanwhile, like to complain about all the ways in which a candidate fails us, and we have to pay the price.
But now, we are seeing the birth of a single issue liberal voter. Carrie Eleveld writes about an interesting poll of Pennsylvania’s governor and senate races. Respondents were asked about their top priorities.
|Abortion (SEN / GUV)||24% / 16%||4% / 3%||14% / 10%|
|Economy (SEN / GUV)||16% / 24%||29% / 28%||22% / 26%|
|Gun control (Sen / GUV)||16% / 18%||18% / 15%||17% / 16%|
While women respondents were more apt to make abortion their top priority in the Senate race, they have not yet realized that abortion is clearly on the ballot in their race for governor. It will come, no doubt.
The women again preferred the Democratic candidate in the Senate race with 23 points, and in the governor’s race with 16 points. In other words, the more important abortion is for women, the stronger their support for the Democratic candidate, overriding the economic concerns that are usually present at the front and center in the midterm elections.
To be clear, this is a single data point, so we need more information, but it certainly supports my gut feeling that traditional mobility has been reversed. Why else would Democrats lead in Wisconsin? If Democrats are leading (if only slightly) in the two most equally divided states in the union, it certainly suggests that we are not in the business-common area. And note, they were both polled Next The decision was struck by a neutron bomb.
Another story is the data point This Dynamic:
My non-political, ultra-religious, large Latino family group conversation is outraged by this decision. This is what my partner reports, women realize that their reproductive treatments are also at risk. You may be seeing the same thing on your social media feeds and group chats. Keep an eye on people you consider apolitical, or even Republican. If you’re looking at what I and others are looking for, click on the comments. I’m really curious to learn, even from anyone, what others are experiencing.
In a perfect world, this abomination promotes progressive (and even non-progressive) voting on behalf of the conservative Overreach Democrats, who are waging a massive campaign against the Supreme Court, restoring balance and strengthening our democratic right to vote. Take advantage of this time by promising to improve. .
Also vote on contraception, and this is a real solid plan for November.
Today, we see Nancy Pelosi read some silly poetry, the House Democrats singing “American the Beautiful” in the footsteps of Congress, and House Whip Jim Cliburn claiming the decision to end. Cry Was “anti-climatic”. We need better leaders and a better approach in the next few months to maximize our chances of winning. We need fire.
But in the end, it doesn’t matter, as the Evangelicals voted for Trump. With abortions on the ballot, in every state, red or blue, we can see the kind of mobilization we have never seen before, especially in mid-term elections. It’s either that, or we start the countdown to the next darling on the cutting block.
