Hell in a handbasket

The Republican definition of freedom seems to be pretty simple: if you are a corporation or rich, you can do whatever you want. Fracking for fun and profit? Go right ahead. Spending ungodly amounts of money to sway elections in favor of the people who will kiss your ass regardless of how that affects the rest of the country? Be our guest. Perpetrating fraud and Ponzi schemes to enrich yourself even more than you have already done? Hey, that's just fine.

But if you are NOT rich, you're fucked. Freedom of choice when it comes to abortion or contraception? Not for you. Freedom to get healthcare without going bankrupt to do it? I don't think so. Freedom to join a union so you have protection from the whims of capricious employers? Not the Amerikan way, Jack.

This is one of the most disgusting times I can ever recall. These hypocritical monsters aren't even pretending to care about the middle class as it shrinks, or the increasing number of impoverished people as the struggle to get by. Nope, their masters are the wealthy corporate cannibals who wish to consume all in their path. I only wish the Democrats would stand up and fight the battle more strongly on the side of the people who need it most.

I guess we're all on our own.
