*just wanted to be clear that I did not mean that vote comment as patronizing. I just…have no other answer other than full on revolt / revolution, which is something that Americans seem incapable of.

I'm lucky enough to be a digital nomad with a second life in Colombia. I've suspected for a while now that Colombia may be where I land semi-permanently but it's looking more and more certain.
  • They just elected a very genuine, very intelligent Leftist president with a very genuine, very intelligent award-winning environmental activist Vice President. They've both made substantial positive changes for the good of the average person.
  • The people have a pulse on reality. Everyone sees poverty every day and knows the pain it causes.
  • Literally nobody likes cops.
  • The political system makes 700 fucktons more sense than ours, and is not bogged down by old white fucks.
  • Gay rights. Abortion rights.
  • Home to 99% of gay cam models, which is iconic. I knew two folks who got hired remotely from Colombia at my old job who did it on the side. Learned about why it's popular there. Cool stuff.
Anyway, it's happening and I'm absolutely making preparations before we go full Handmaid's Tale.

Some of the er, 'moderate' Republicans I know, have said "They won't go after gay marriage, it would be too controversial with how widely accepted it is now," as if abortion wasn't also widely accepted for the last few decades. They're looking really fucking stupid right now.
Feel free to direct those fuckwits to these polls:

https://www.pewresearch.org/religion/fact-sheet/public-opinion-on-abortion/
https://www.pewresearch.org/politic...vors-same-sex-marriage-but-divisions-persist/

Abortion:
Support: 61%
Oppose: 37%

Same-Sex Marriage:
Favor: 61%
Oppose: 31%

They're literally the same

I can't help wondering what America looks like in 2030.
I feel like this is just the beginning of a very dark period for human rights.
I'm becoming increasingly sure life, as in fulfilling the needs of food, water, and adequate shelter, will be extremely competitive and difficult come 2030.

Having said that, let's not resign ourselves to nihilism. Listening to "Today the Sun's on Us" by Sophie Ellis-Bextor to remind myself we're not there yet. For my own mental health I have to remind myself there's still my loved ones and so many good things in my life, and I have to actively enjoy them now.

BUT. My heart is seriously hurting for all those who are pregnant who do not wish to be. I cannot imagine how scary that must feel right now.

Right, it’s so aggravating talking to normies who refuse to believe that Republicans are as radical as they are. They’re so open about it, but it never seems to stick. Even if this decision ends up changing their minds, it’s already too late.

The gay cam models…so real. We stan Colombia!

I'm tired of the "just leave!" talking point coming up anytime something bad happens. This isn't directed towards anyone in this thread because like, if you can find a way out then good for you. But that's not a realistic option for the 300 million+ people that live here, especially for the poor/disabled/other minority populations that get hit the hardest by these policies. There's also the fact that no one should have to leave their home.

Most Americans want better and that's enough for me to keep hope. That doesn't make these things any less of a punch in the gut, but unionization efforts, talks of a general strike, & all these other things are gaining more ground everyday. I reiterate the fact that we should be looking out for our communities and give up on the idea that the government is here to help us. Donate to abortion funds, do mutual aid, volunteer, etc.
