Where do we go from here?

Posted on Jun 24, 2022

This week the American Supreme Court has decided to attack decades of legal precedent to protect the interests of wealthy evangelicals and lobbyists. They struck a grievous blow to a woman’s right to make her own choices. They have eliminated personal consequences for police abusing positions of power. They have undermined any attempts to reduce or eliminate gun violence in our country.

It’s clear that the court is not operating in the interest of the American people. I had held out hope that the recently nominated justices would stand by the rule of law instead of radical right-wing politics. That isn’t what happened. The justices nominated by the corrupt ex-president are just as corrupt as the ex-president himself.

Now, we get to see the civil rights work of our parents’ generations rolled back by a stacked court nominated by cheaters and thieves.

I love the principles upon which America was founded. I’m really struggling with the idea the people running the country despise those principles. I’m terrified that we’re moving toward the theocracy this country was founded to escape.

I’m heart-sick and tired. I never asked for any of this. How am I supposed to raise my kids here?
