I should have listened to JR. It's time to dust off our sandals and move on. Scorpius has some deep seeded issues and he believes he has all the philosophical answers to overcome them when in reality he is as lost as the lamb on his comment page with the satanic eyes.

I should correct myself earlier when I said Republicans sided with the religious community. I should have been more specific because I would not be surprised if a significant portion (if not a majority) of those who consider themselves religious in this country do not vote Republican.

To be more correct, Republicans specifically sided with the small sub-set of the religious community which favors the growth of government control over our lives in a religious or faith-based sense. The pro-theocracy (Israel style) crowd. And again, this is why it was really hypocritical when the party-of-less-government sided specifically with these folks in the late 70's. This hypocrisy remains today and is precisely the "devil" I'm talking out.

You might pass this off as nothing, and it was nothing when no one thought the Supreme Court would overturn Roe. But that has changed and now it matters. There are a significant number of Republicans today who do not feel Roe should be overturned, and there is little doubt a portion of these feel so strongly about it, they will drop support for the party, or at the very least not even vote because of it. This is a fact. Only part of it up for debate is the size of this pool of people.

To determine the size of this pool we only have one major election so far to go by since the Supreme Court went nuts. The California recall. And as I mentioned before, Newsom was in trouble until all of this happened. Then he ended up winning by a greater number than he originally got elected with. I do not think it's a coincidence.

Plus there's MORE! It's not just what the Court did to Roe, but the way they did it with the extreme vigilante tactic. It strikes at the heart of the invasion of privacy on potentially any issue and leaves little doubt the corresponding potential growth of government control over our lives. This alarms Republicans as much if not more so than Democrats. The devil is here!
