I just posted this rant on Facebook

(I may get blocked or unfriended by some repub relatives, but fuck 'em.)

I'm sorry, but this is NOT "the greatest country in the world." It's not even close. It is controlled by an electoral minority in red states with anti-democratic values, like abolishing: the separation of church and state, the safety nets that keep poor people from starving to death, health care assistance that keep poor people alive, reproductive services that allow women autonomy over their own bodies, and environmental regulations that keep our planet liveable. To name a few. The majority of Americans want all these freedoms and systems to be strengthened, or at least, left alone, but our voices and votes don't count.

Whatever right wingers want they get, and fuck anyone who doesn't agree. I fear for this country, and I'm ashamed of how backward and ignorant it is. Greatest country in the world? Bullshit. People in many other countries would beg to differ.

If this offends any of my republican relatives, I'm sorry. You have been seriously misled by the oligarchs in power and the propaganda machine that allows them to lie, and cheat, and steal to get and keep power. I am so angry about this most recent travesty. Putting someone like Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court is a slap in the face to millions of women, and basically tells the majority of people in this country that what we want doesn't matter.

Trump and his minions are not making America great. They are destroying the America we knew and turning it into America, Inc. Thanks, Trump voters. Thanks for nothing.
