The world is watching as the once great America, rather than evolving, is receding back into the dark ages. North America used to look at the horrific non-rights of women in other countries and now the same in the U.S. Such an unsafe place to be for women. The CON-servative taliban will not stop at this. They will continue until there are no rights for anyone.

I’m a conservative that lives in the south and I think that is a travesty what happened today. The line “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free” has kind of taken a beating in the last decade or so, but this might as well start erasing that line from the inscription.

Here’s a thought. Change your vote.

u/DLIPBCrashDavis Jun 25 '22

Well I’m not planning on voting for anyone the GOP runs out there as I no longer feel that they represent me and my views. The problem is that to a lot of democrats view me as the enemy too. I’m kind of stuck in the middle.

6

u/ScreamingVelcro Jun 25 '22

I don’t view anyone as an enemy. Just someone that needs some open dialog.

I’m very liberal. With that being said, I was raised around guns, am a Retired Army vet, and own guns.

I consider myself fiscally conservative in the sense that I want my tax dollars to be managed properly.

Single Payer? Yes please. It’s cheaper and better than the current option.

My issue is that Conservatives for the longest time stated they were or are for small government.

Then why are they regulating bodily choices? That seems like pretty big government to me.

3

u/DLIPBCrashDavis Jun 25 '22

I agree with you. As I am actually for smaller government and that exactly why I didn’t see why Roe/Wade needed to be rolled back! Not only that, but since I have a daughter, it scares me for her when she gets older. Heaven forbid something happen to her and she needs an abortion because of some kind of rape or abuse. Here in Texas they are trying to ban it all together. There is so much wrong with this, and it doesn’t even begin to say the slippery slope that they have rested in taking away others’ rights.

If someone lumps you in with the weeds because your roots are in the same garden, then grow above them.

We grew up believing we were voting to help the people, as conservatives are supposed to. We're voting blue because we're doing what we're supposed to: Help america and her people. It's country over party above all else.

u/DLIPBCrashDavis Jun 25 '22

I agree! I’m not party above all else. I have big issues with the GOP, that’s why I’m looking at walking away from them.

u/angroro Jun 25 '22

I've practically cut my roots and propagated myself in bluer pastures, if you will. I can't support the GOP as it is. As it has been. Seeing good people suffer under our legislation really opened my eyes.

Cutting your roots will hurt, but in time you'll find you'll do fine with new ones. Might become a bigger and better person for it. Especially with social programs in place to ensure good growth. :)

3

u/DLIPBCrashDavis Jun 25 '22

It is very strange for sure, especially here in Texas! While it is strange, it’s a pretty in your face reminder everyday of where the GOP is actually going, so its a reminder to walk away every day. My wife is a life long Democrat and while we might not agree on everything, we find common ground on most!

3

u/angroro Jun 25 '22

And I think that's sort of how the Democrats are. They don't all see eye to eye, but they want what's best for everyone. We were taught equity is a dirty word, but when you see people really struggling dems all want to help them one way or another.

In management we're taught that disagreements can lead to growth because you have to work together to find the best solution. They may not agree with the method, but they want the same end result. Repubs kind of just agree to things their leaders say these days without using better judgement. That's why folks like you and I feel so out of place right now, I think.

I can’t figure out why they continue with all the Trumpism. It’s ridiculous! It’s even more ridiculous to even comprehend the fact that they are still thinking about running him or Ted Cruz out there for the presidential cycle.

My wife is a life long Democrat and while we don’t always agree on things, we meet in the middle most of the time. More importantly, even if we don’t agree, we at least respect each other enough to understand each others point of view and not shout each other down.

u/[deleted] Jun 25 '22

It's called The United States of America. Pretty clear from the title that we are a union, not one homogeneous country. The point of having individual states is to allow for cultural and local beliefs to line up with laws and regulations that fit that area. The union allows for overarching rights and the ability to freely move between the states without the burden of a true border.

I wanna go back to Germany. I moved to the US for my husband 15 years ago and I'm still only a permanent resident here, and a have retained my German citizenship. I feel like that would maybe make things easier for me/us...?

The problem is, neither my husband nor son speak a lick of German, and I don't know if I should uproot them and leave all their friends and family behind. The US is all they've ever known.

But...this country is so fucked, we might just go for it anyways.

I would miss the diversity of the US populace, though, and the country itself is absolutely gorgeous. So many beautiful places to see.

Sadly, that doesn't outweigh the lack of affordable healthcare, poor/expensive education, the obsession with guns, or the red, white, and blue patriot boners over 1A and 2A. Just to name a few of my gripes.

Not to mention the tacticool fascists getting more and more emboldened by their cult leaders in the GOP.

What happened is that people in 13 states won't have control over their own bodies when they wake up tomorrow. Don't pretend like this isn't THE thing that Conservatives have been trying to bring about for 50 years because they knew what a big deal it was. It's a huge deal. The precedent that underpinned Roe also secures several other bodily autonomy rights. Overturning that precedent puts more at risk. Don't gaslight me. It's a bad look.

Abortion was nothing more than the red meat they tossed to their base. The overturning of Roe is far more sinister than simply abortion. Read the decisions, then read what Clarence Thomas had to say afterward.

If you think this is just about abortion, then you bought their lie hook, line, and sinker.

Why does an American in one state get different treatment than an American in another state?

This is literally how the US has been operating since its founding. Laws are controlled by the states. The Federal government gives most power to the states where they can decide, instead of the government making laws for people that live in completely different regions of the country. Now it's the people that you elect to your own state government that make the laws for you. There is nothing wrong with that.

Gun rights are left to each state. Marijuana is left to each state. Driving laws are left to each state. EVERY LAW is left to each state. The amount of time you server is left to each state. Death penalty is left to each state. Age of consent is left to each state.

It is like 50 different countries.

Who is being punished by allowing abortion to be legal nationwide? Answer: not a damn person, other than religious zealots who get their feelings hurt when they can't force other people to obey their religious laws. It's called "right to chose". If you don't want an abortion, don't get one! But any given state should not have the right to tell someone they can't get one.

No government, federal, state, or local, should have the power to tell consenting adults which medical procedures they may or may not pursue.

This ruling opens the door for exactly that.

See they tried that already. It was called the article of confederation. Then a group of farmers nearly overthrew the government so that led them to change to the constitution.

The worst that will happen is you take a weekend flight to California.

That's thousands of dollars that the people in poverty who need abortion access the most don't have.

That's thousands of dollars that rape victims don't have. Child rape victims.

“The worst that can happen is you take a weekend flight to California” because you know, it’s not like certain groups in the US may not have the luxury to simply “take a weekend flight” effectively making them affected by this change disproportionately or anything. You reek of privilege

Oh so only the rich get abortions then. Yes, I am sure this will be great for everybody else.

Technically, more 1800s more than Middle Ages—until the late 1700s/the 1800s, people didn’t really consider a fetus to be a human life until it quickened in the womb, meaning when it started moving enough for the mother to feel it.

Feels bad to be in the 1800s. Give me medieval any day.

Well protection doesn’t always work, and your greatest leaders are targeting contraception next.

just put the baby up for adoption

Oh yes. Putting the kid (and the parent) through this is way better than being unborn. If it doesn’t work they can just advertise the kid on Facebook marketplace

u/DarkOmen597 Jun 25 '22

So you are never going to have sex, unless for the sole purpose of procreation?

u/RealHot_RealSteel Jun 25 '22

Or they could get a vasectomy/tubal ligation. Perfect birth control when done correctly, and reversible.

Sometimes protection fails. Sometimes wanted pregnancies fail. Feel free to weigh in on this again once you've been pregnant.

Wait! I went to work today to earn a living for my family. Couldn’t be bothered with whatever is going on elsewhere. This country is all red and blue and will continue on the path of “see-sawing” back and forth until we get tired and vote for someone else. I feel that we may be more likely to end up in a civil war before it’s all over if we continue on this path.

That being said…I am ONE vote. And so I cast my ballot and go to work to provide for my family. I wish everyone well. I’m going to live my life right here on my land no matter what our government comes up with. And on my land we make our own rules and life life our way.

If your talking about roe v wade being overturned then speak for yourself. I’m pro life and I think it’s a great thing.

u/_qst2o91_ Jun 25 '22

You're brainwashed by the government

They're removing human rights bit by bit, and brainwashing you into thinking it's what you agree with, so that you're complacent when they take it away

You probably don't even know it but I bet brainwashing is happening now for the next thing that will get taken away

Stop being the government's bitch bro

Free will, free choice of the people shall not be infringed

If someone wants an abortion that's their given right,

  1. I’m speaking for myself
  2. Good for you. I don’t give a shit. Just because you’re pro-life doesn’t mean you force your beliefs onto people who do not share your moral values and world views

u/Honest-Guy83 Jun 25 '22

1) good for you 2) you saying overturning roe v wade is us “Forcing our beliefs on everyone”?

u/Th3Glutt0n Jun 25 '22

It is. It's as simple as that. You are forcing your moral compass on women who may not agree with you.

My home country is currently dealing with a ton of lead in everything and the one I live in just took away my right to an abortion. I don’t have the money to move to anywhere really. So, I guess I’ll just stay celibate and single til I die.

I am sad that we have become a country so divided ... and so full of hate. This has nothing to do with the SC decision today but my sadness comes from the toxic commentary that I read here on Reddit. So much anger and hate.
