[Given that roughly half the eligible voters in the U.S. do not vote, a right wing Christian takeover is not all that unlikely — at least something to worry about — abortion, homosexuality, criminalized again, women rejected from the workplace and a variety of other disastrous moves — war on Islam wherever, preparation for the apocalypse with nuclear attacks here and there, exclusion of immigrants from schools and medical care. etc. etc. Don’t think these characters don’t have an agenda — or perhaps both public and secret ones — only born agains in the White House or on the Supreme Court? And members of minority groups need not apply. Capital punishment for a new range of crimes. And imagine all those signing statements relating to some of the Constitutional basics — particularly the First Amendment speech protections and establishment restrictions!

They said it could not happen there in one of our most civilized nations back in the 20th. century — but it did! Don’t say you have not been warned. Ed Kent]

“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
