But don't fret, if the majority of Americans, be it because not enough went out to vote, or because of voter disenfranchising, gerrymandering and tons of anonymous money spent on false advertising and to promote fear...if the American people buy what the Republicans are selling...they will be totally turned off and hostile to anything Republican within 2 years time.
Imagine what has been happening in those red states...multiply that 50 fold, believing that they have been empowered and have a real mandate...what Republicans are going to do...how much harm they are going to inflict upon our country, how many people will be negatively affected.
And all for what? To benefit a handful of billionaires and give yet more tax breaks and subsidies to the large corporations while the majority of the American people suffer dismal financial hardships?
I assure you, this is not fear-mongering, you only have to look at the Republican agenda and what has been happening in those states where they have power. Social Security is first on the chopping block. The list continues with repealing OBAMACARE...which they've voted on doing fifty times. It will extend to the end of Medicare, Medicaid, Food Stamps, EPA, closing all women reproductive health clinics and even outlawing birth control.
Because they feel empowered, then they will double down on oppressing minorities. If you think that the murder of teenagers in the hands of police was horrible...just you wait when their racism is reinforced by giving them a green light to repress and abuse minorities even harder.
The LGBT community will see a lot of their gains reversed, there will be attempts to nullify all same sex marriages and even trying to incorporate a Constitutional Amendment reaffirming that the only valid marriage is that between a man and a woman.
Welcome to theocratic, racist, retrograde America. An oligarchy instead of a democracy, a government that only works for the wealthy and the corporations and not the people it represents.
But wait a minute, how long do you think that kind of shit is sustainable? Or put in other words, how long do you think Americans will tolerate that deviation from what the United States really stands for, who we are as a people and having their dreams and aspirations obliterated by some askew conservative ideology?
