My outrage won't fit on this blog
Maybe I need to express my anger, though. I'm usually a calm person. Relatively quiet. Absorbed in my writing, reading and painting. Enjoying my cats. But.
I'm angry that twice I have voted for president, my candidate got the most votes, and the Electoral College or Supreme Court gave the presidency to the other guy who turned out to be a god-awful horrible president.
I'm angry that the Republican party won't put a stop to the incompetent narcissist lunatic wannabe fascist they installed in the White House, especially when most of them know exactly what he is and the damage he is doing to our country.
I'm angry that Republican states are again writing laws telling women outright that our lives are less important than a developing clump of cells growing inside our bodies.
I'm angry that Republicans think voter suppression is just fine and dandy because it helps them win elections they shouldn't win. See also their opinion of the fine and dandy Russian meddling in our elections.
I'm very angry that climate change is causing irreparable harm to our planet, and my government won't do a fucking thing to address it. Mostly because of the above-mentioned Republicans that pretend science doesn't exist when it suits them.
And I'm tired of being so incredibly angry.
This isn't democracy. This is dystopia. And I don't know if I can just keep hoping that we'll fix this incredible load of crap in 2020.
Because what if we don't?
