and realize those "issues" are just diversions away from the realization the financial elites are continuing to pick their pockets.
The American people are being played like a Stradivarius, and it's long since overdue to change the tune.
Yes, abortion is important, but for God's sake, there are far more critical issues here going on. The anti-abortion politicians have NO intention of reversing Roe v. Wade for all their bluster. It's a perfect wedge issue, just like bitching about the poor having "too much" and "gaming the system" is a perfect wedge issue, or that public employees are breaking the bank is a perfect wedge issue. ANYTHING to divert attention away from the outright theft going on under people's noses.
Not that the "Democrats" are actually any better. They can holler about abortion "rights" until they are blue in the face because that lets them off the hook for doing the people's business of defending their rights against the neoliberal/billionaire/Wall Street predators to whom almost all of the politicians are beholden.
It's a disgusting state of affairs.
