SCALES OF INJUSTICE
When the far right Supreme Court made Citizen’s United the law of the land, they basically gave Corporations the ability to buy legislation and in doing so, design the playing field in their favor. That’s how resources have been transferred from the masses to the very rich. Slowly, law by law, they rig the game. The only way we stand a chance against this is to tsunami the ballot boxes tomorrow. We need everyone. We’ve got to do it. There’s so much at stake.
Health care: If the Reds hold the House, Obamacare will be history. Republican proposals could permanently cripple Medicaid. Millions will lose coverage. Pre-existing condition? You’re out of luck. Medicare and social security will be next. The Reds want that money for more billionaire bonuses.
Women’s rights to control their reproductive lives: In fact, women’s rights to retain control of their very bodies. That a bunch of old, rich men could take body autonomy away from us is outrageous—completely unacceptable.
Our image in the world has collapsed into a chaotic mess that’s spread uncertainty and fear across the globe. No one has a clue what Trump might do at any moment. He’s alienated our staunchest allies and befriended despotic dictators. His off-the-cuff tariffs could pull us into a recession. Our human rights activities are atrocious. We need a Blue Congress, who can at the very least, slow him down until we can dump him in 2020. (Unless Mueller comes through before then. Go Mueller!)
Climate change: A new UN report warns that we have 12 years to limit climate change catastrophe. It’s imperative that global warming is kept to a maximum of 1.5 C; anything beyond even a half degree will significantly worsen the risks of floods, drought, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people. A report like this should have the whole country talking; but no, the populace has been caught up with the Trump reality-TV side show. And the ultra-rich 1% continues to suck up all the resources on the backs of the 99% masses. Not okay. Not okay at all.
Don’t let the ultra-rich continue to take it all. Everyone deserves a descent life, not just the blue-bloods. The only way to regain any power for the rest of us is by voting. So vote! Let’s bring a little justice back into the picture. @blueravenartist
