    Legit debating to move at this point. I do think they'll eventually outright ban abortion across the country. I'm flying to Toronto today for a work trip. Not sure I'll be able handle the winter if we were able to move there since I've always lived in the south, but that's a small price to pay if we decide to leave this shit hole of a country.

    I bitched about people on here suggesting this before as being a privileged and shameful thing to do, but at this point it's so clear Dems will never have the guts to actually attempt to save this country. If you have the means to leave I would not blame you one bit.

    In this scenario, are we going to pretend like the court wouldn't just make a up reason to say that law was illegal?

    This is a regressive decision no doubt but we can all take solace in the fact it was made by lawyers.

    You keep doing it, changing the law however much it needs each time and keep forcing them to overturn it.

    B-b-but we don't really have a majority despite FLOOODING my state with ads that said they would be able to pass meaningful legislation if we voted blue on our Senate runoffs.

    Also a little surprised that the judges didn’t think about their personal lives when they did this. Have fun trying to eat out in DC again. At best they’ll be undisturbed at their table eating food that a cook dragged his nuts across. But more likely they’ll be heckled out of every public place they’ll try to go

    I guess better late than never.

    But this is what happens when fascists reach the level of power they have here. Calling them that isn’t just heated rhetoric, it’s necessary rhetoric. I’m afraid things are going to get much worse before they get better.

    But, we're not going to provide healthcare to the mother while she's pregnant, and we're not going to give you any healthcare once you're born. Really, we just want to make sure you're born, then you're on your own. The R way!

    The scary part is they really don't even have all that much power currently. They're just extremely effective at wielding what power they do have. Meanwhile, the Dems control the presidency and both chambers of Congress and just sit back and twiddle their thumbs while the fascists take over. We're all fucked.

    Marbles if you have any conservative gay relatives, you might want to give them a heads up that they're not going to like what's coming next.

    I don’t think she’s ever voted in an election and thought she was conservative because that’s what her parents were. She’s never really taken a deep dive into politics but just clung to what her parents said.

    I don't even really get why they care when their feeling towards most people who get an elective abortion range between indifferent (poor white people) and outright disdain (poor non-whites). The outrage they have towards abortion seem so performative.

    Maybe I’m giving Dems too much credit, but I think they’ve got a decent shot of keeping a 50/50 senate

    GOP basically has 4 targets: Arizona, Georgia, New Hampshire, and Nevada. I think you can scratch NH off for sure. They’ve not recruited any good candidates and/or fundraisers in New Hampshire, so I think Hassan is probably safe. In Georgia, Herschel Walker is a lunatic, and Warnock is a really good candidate with lots of money who is going to expose Walker in general election. Then in Arizona, they have no great obvious candidate, and Kelly is a good candidate and popular senator with a ton of money. I think they’ll pick of CCM in Nevada, but that’s probably it.

    Dems have 3 targets: Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Don’t see them performing well in Ohio, but I could easily see them picking up one of Penn/Wisc, especially with Ron Johnson’s stupidity and unfavorable ratings.

    Obviously could still swing hard other way, so I think they’ve got a shot, and if they do, they better keep Manchin happy.
