My Thoughts About The 2022 Midterm Elections And My Votes Here In Alabama

Tomorrow is the midterm elections and to be honest I am kind of nervous.  I’m nervous because I think the US House will go Republican.  And the US Senate is up in the air, but I am afraid that will go Republican as well.  As we have seen, there are some batshit crazy Republicans out there.  And their plans if they take back Congress is scary as hell.

They have been talking about ending Social Security and Medicare.  If that happens what do seniors and people with disabilities do?  You will have a massive homelessness crisis in this country.  And with Trump talking about rounding up homeless people and putting them in camps, it’s a convenient way to hide people with disabilities out of plain sight.

Republicans are also talking about ending all LGBTQ and trans rights.  And they’re also talking about a federal abortion ban.  Combined with the conspiracy theories, Qanon madness, and insane talking points, the Republican Party has gone batshit crazy and mentally ill.

Things are getting so bad, some on the right want a civil war.  And given what could be coming over the next few years in this country, we could see that civil war.  If the United states goes full blown into a second civil war, LGBTQ / Trans people, people with disabilities, liberals, Jewish people, and anyone who doesn’t look like or sound like and stereotypical American, will be a target.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we will see more people become “political refugees” in the United States.  And that is mind blowing, because political refugees is something you only hear about in third world countries.  With Republicans going so insane in our politics, you will see more people have to flee to blue states or out of this country for their safety, mental health, and their well-being, even if that means they must be homeless and live on the streets for a while.

And honestly it’s just so sad.  Because people who value diversity, everyone having the same rights, and living in a peaceful respectful society, is going to be chased away from red states, unless they want to be captured or killed.

This midterm election can stop some of this potential chaos in the United States.  Will people be smart and vote for the saner Democrats?  I am not holding my breath.

Anyways, I am going to talk about who I am voting for in the 2022 Alabama midterm elections. let’s get started.
