For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Mark 8: 36
This profound question deserves an answer. Today as we look at the political world that governs our very lives we see legislators who willingly sell our liberty for their own profit. As I write this, we don’t know if Brett Kavanaugh (age 53) will be given a lifetime appointment to our highest court; but through true political courage, we are learning what kind of man Brett Kavanaugh is.
Mercifully, not every senator is for sale. Senator Cory Booker put his political career on the line by telling the truth; Republicons were hiding Kavanaugh’s true biases by labeling them “confidential.”
Contrary to Kavanaugh’s sworn testimony, his true beliefs are now known: birth control is abortion; EOE is just set asides for minorities; Roe v Wade is up to new interpretation. Even more alarming and damning are emails he wrote stating he knew he was circulating stolen Democratic senate staffers’ documents to Republicon political operatives.
What we now know: Brett Kavanaugh is cravenly, nakedly power hungry and he lies, cheats and steals to get what he wants. What he wants is power over others. He wants women, all races, all colors and LGBTQ to bow down before him and his white brethren; and as the majority SCOTUS vote, he will get it. What we will get is the doo whack-a-doo.
Elections have consequences and even if you delight in “libtards tears,” Trump’s laws apply to everyone. He’s a cruel man who delights in tormenting everyone for his amusement. His actions ruin his supporters, he gloats. He calls us “dumb southerners with hillbilly accents” while he steals our food, medicine and housing money with his tax scams.
Not everyone can protest in Washington, but we can all register others, vote and call our congressmen/women (202) 224-3121 and give our opinions.
It’s time to take the next step; work for your local candidates. We have great local Democratic candidates who all need your help. Donate. Volunteer. Put out signs. Make calls. Vote!
Just Do It.
