They're at least going down in flames, and they're trying to pass as many anti-woman, anti-children, and those "FUCK YOU I GOT MINE" bills, but many are being shot down. For example, the Colorado Legislature just passed an anti-woman bill that I think should be shot down or declared the bill dead by the Colorado Senate which is controlled by the Democratic Party.
The Taliban-Americans are trying to shove religious beliefs to many people that doesn't like the fact that religion is being shoved in front of them. Here in Chicago (where I am visiting family), I am seeing many crazy right-wing nuts procreating and I'm not understanding WHY they must create as many children. One family (my BIL's brother) has 7 children. I see the children, and I wonder how they are going to go through life being forced to live by their religious beliefs. Children should have a choice. I did - I chose not to believe, and I reject religion because they do not have all the answers that science already provided.
Karl Marx said it right - "Religious distress is at the same time the expression of real distress and the protest against real distress. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. It is the opium of the people. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness. The demand to give up the illusion about its condition is the demand to give up a condition which needs illusions."
I don't know if that makes me an Marxist, but his ideas seem to be fitting better and better all the time with the current situation.
