Biden's Roe V. Wade speech could be summarised as him saying 'ok'.


Easmostern

My man really replied with a '👍' to the group chat freaking out


vulnerabletk

I think a lot of people forget that this is actually the Democrat strategy here.


AussieHawker

There is an election, this year, with the Senate and House up for grabs. And every state can now set abortion policy, so state legislatures, governors and referendums all have a lot of power. No idea what context this is supposed to be, or who this is.


Foot0fGod

Biden still pretending like 2024 will be free and fair after 2022 Congress takeover, states positioning to overturn results, redoubled effort to overthrow election in the vanishing chance the GOP does lose the Presidential election. They just always pretend like it's just a normal day in a normal democracy as it burns around them.


AussieHawker

Maybe don't let them take over congress then.


Foot0fGod

I'm going to vote and do everything I can to get others out to vote, but you're kidding yourself if you don't just see the math and the trends of what the absolute most likely outcome by far is.

The Democrats need to give a case to centrists, swing voters, and apolitical people and win over those peoples’ votes. The lefties, progressives, and liberals already vote democrat. Everyone in this sub votes democrat.


Th3Trashkin

Ap*******l "people" 🤮🤮🤮🤮


LizFallingUp

Centrist, “Swing” voters, and apolitical people are a myth. Things are polarized enough everyone is forced to take a side. What they need to do is energize voters to overcome hopelessness and apathy. The Dems Suck at that though. The Dems need to get firey


Easmostern

Context is dggers trying to convince me that doing anything besides voting is bad/pointless.


Lord_Matisaro

Voting is the foundation of action not the summation of it. All this AND vote every time is the way.


Easmostern

Yes, that is my point as well.


SarahKerrigan90

Next year is being generous. I heard they want to decide most of this stuff over the next coming months from articles I readlast night.


Mrgbiss

So then tell me what to do more than vote


Easmostern

As I've said here and elsewhere: >Protest, call politicians, write them letters, donate to abortion funds, don't forget elections that aren't federal, etc


Mrgbiss

Yeah I just noticed. Thing is that smug leftists (not you) always seem to imply there are many tools outside of electoralism but I just don’t get what more we can do. Any protest or use of political violence these days always seem to produce negative outcomes for the left.


Easmostern

The march for our lives in 2018 was a huge turning point in the gun discourse in the US and it led to actual policy changes. BLM brought a spotlight to systemic racism not just in policing but in general that's not going away. It's made millions of people aware of these issues. Don't be a doomer and give up on one of the few ways you have of affecting your country's future.


Mrgbiss

I mean you could be right. If you know of any good studies or articles on the impact of protests I’d love to learn more.


Easmostern

I've got a study that says that laws get passed WAY more often depending on what the rich want than what the people actually want. Does that mean you'll stop voting? Didn't think so.


Mrgbiss

I don’t follow


Easmostern

Why do you need a study that (somehow) proves protests work?


Mrgbiss

Doesn’t have to be a study just a reliable source of some kind. In the current political landscape I’m not convinced protests are effective . But I could definitely be wrong so I just asked if you happened to know of any good sources.


TackleOk3608

Protesting is much much much more important than voting. Please just consider basic history. The founding of the United States. Civil rights.


LizFallingUp

Watts Riots, and then MLK Riots were what finally got the 1968 Civil Rights Act passed aka fair housing. Kennedy Assassination got the 1964 Act finally passed. It wasn’t just peaceful protest, the white washing of the movement has made the Left largely ineffective today. Heck remembers the Womens March? It wasn’t that long ago and it got shit all done.

Join a DSA chapter join a local mutual aid group. Do direct action in any capacity


StrangeReptilian

Is this happening in the fucking devil may cry subreddit??


G00bre

So what's your actual suggestion?


Easmostern

Protest, call politicians, write them letters, donate to abortion funds, don't forget elections that aren't federal, etc


G00bre

Well that's something.

And also wtf is the point of this post? You look at two comment on some random sub and you think it's worth posting about? Jesus Christ go outside.


Easmostern

Most of them expressed the same apathy to non-electoral actions. This was only an example.


pommdeter

Liberal moment


Away_Philosopher_484

ok


WeCantBeMeanAnymore

I don't get it who are we supposed to be mad at here?


vulnerabletk

Arent you guys libs tho?? Arent you guys liberal? I dint know why you constantly drag on libs. Im dumb helo me understand.


Zeyode

Some of us are, but most of us are socialists. Socialists usually agree with most of the principles of liberalism, but one of the core principles of liberalism is capitalism, so that tends to put us at odds with libs. Socialists also usually tend to be more open to radical action and changes if it means improving people's lives, while it seems like libs tend to be more wary of it to a fault.
