What God has given us with the landmark decision today overturning the repressive DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and the negating of California Prop 8 can be taken away as the overturning yesterday by the US Supreme Court of the legendary Civil Rights Act of 1965 shows. We thought that momentous 1965 Civil Rights Act was carved in stone until we elected Republican presidents who put right wing extremists on the Court. Their goal was to neuter that law.
Legislation and SCOTUS decisions are only as good as the ability for progressives to win the day in elections federally and on the state and gubernatorial level. As our politics has shaken out, all those things that a civilized society thinks humane and reflected in law are being promulgated and defended solely by Democrats through the Democratic Party.
Republicans have become the party of reactionary regression to a 19th century world. It is the Party of interposition and nullification of the Civil War era. The Republican Party, far from the Party of Lincoln, is sown from the Confederacy of the Old South sprinkled with a few token blacks as icing on its poisonous cake. The Tea Party Republican wing has been co-opted by big money contributions which the US Supreme Court’s rancid decision of Citizen's United made possible. It has made that party dedicated to the 1% richest of the nation subliminally under the nose of the duped and in the disguise of populist politics.
Moreover, the Republican Party is the party, as the Republican 2012 "debates" showed, that does not care if the poor, or anyone for that matter, live or die. Republicans simply do not care about human rights but they do care about shoving their religious belief system into the uteri of women and they do care about government not caring about what nefarious tactics Wall Street uses to make trillions. While Democrats are not perfect Republicans are catastrophic to one's health and the whole nation's economic security. I urge you, therefore, to elect solely Democrats to positions of power throughout the land.
Republicans try as they might could not stop minorities in 2012 from voting even with Republicans’ election evil attempts to suppress the minority vote. They MUST NOT be allowed to stop us EVER! WE WILL SIGN EVERY DEMOCRAT UP TO VOTE, OBTAIN VOTER ID'S IF NECESSARY AND GET OUT THE VOTE EVEN WHEN THEY CHANGE VOTING TIMES OR PLACES. WE WILL BEAT THEM AT THEIR OWN ODIOUS GAME BY COMPLYING WITH THEIR SUBVERSIVE LAWS IF NECESSARY UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THIS COUNTRY RETURNS TO A STATE OF FAIRNESS IT ONCE WAS AND WHAT DR. KING ENVISIONED WHEN LYNDON JOHNSON SIGNED THE 1965 CIVIL RIGHTS ACT RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM!
Onward to 2014 and help Democrats win it all!
