Ok so all this about the recent SC decision- it is some shit that they’re allowing religious differences to be grounds for anything in the economic sphere. Like hello no.
If everyone has such a problem with it, do something about it. Call your congressmen. Call your senator. Get goddamn snappy on the phone. The madder you are, the more likely your response will get to your actual representative through whatever random employee picks up the phone. Your senator or assemblyman or whoever wants to know what you think. They do. Why? Because they want your vote. Sure, they may have their own agendas, aspirations to higher office, lots of other things that want to do with their position, but mostly- they want to keep that position. In my state, one of our reps has been so for sixteen goddamn years. And people say and think things all the time like “I can’t do anything”, “One person can’t change things,” “There’s so much fuckin shit going on in this country I dont even know what I’m mad at anymore”- Fair enough. But that’s called ‘political efficacy’- an indication of how much citizens think they can influence government affairs.
This is America. This is our thing. CALL, CALL NOW. I’ll be on the phone tomorrow, too. [It’s fairly late where I am.]
You never know til you try. And the whole point is this- if enough people complain and voice their opinions, the reps will bring it to Congress, And then Congress can write a new law that works its way around whatever decisions people disagree with. Heavy argument ensues, obviously. But this is how it works. And it starts with us, the wee grassroots down here. SOW YOUR SEEDS, GRASSROOTS.
[This has been an idealized rant as a result of severe anger at the injustice of the supposedly free country we live in. I’m not aiming to offend anybody at all on here, so don’t take it that way. Or I’ll find you. *wink*]
May the Will of George Washington be with you.
