Roy Moore loses by 1.5% of the vote. A democrat in a republican state. Good, the guy was a slime apparently. This judge has been accused of some pretty terrible things, enough for him to lose an election that likely would've been no problem had he not come to the table with scandal. However, we do know that the American conservative cares more about the unborn than they do about the people who are currently alive today. What do I mean?
Trump himself has a number of open accusations about his sexual misconduct. He's flaunted his misogynistic attitude throughout his life and defended it as 'locker talk'. The thing that makes me most concerned is reading the comments of average citizens defending this shit. They DEFEND Roy Moore. They DEFEND Trump. Today, after Roy Moore decided to be a douche and not concede, I read a bunch of comments from his supporters.
1) Someone stated that Doug Jones believes in killing babies, doesn't believe in building the wall and won't secure our country against illegal aliens. Nice of this person to recognize what is right and wrong.
2) Another person used people going to heaven as their defense of a position that once again called out democrats for not following the blind agenda of ending abortion and building a wall.
4) A WOMAN supporter of Roy Moore talked about abortion and put it down as the ONLY issue. The ONLY thing that mattered.
Abortion used to be the kind of situation that people were upset about and it made sense. Their concerns were founded on compassion. Now, it's like this obsession. They almost don't even seem to understand WHY they're so upset because they are supporting people that have tortured, abused, neglected or, through legal process, ruined the lives of people who would need them. If not them, then they have caused trouble for woman in the past--or sometimes men (how many times have we seen conservatives getting busted with their same sex partners lately?).
I'm saddened by the lack of sanity in our debates. Both sides are guilty of it to some degree but when someone has a blind obsession, it's over. The strangest comments come out of people and they don't give a crap who reads them, sees them or what they entail. This extends to all forms of conversation in our current situation. I'm getting my sanity in doses but most of the time, the measurement seems off.
