    If they had they way, neither would anything else.

    America isn’t a democracy and never was. It’s a constitutional federal republic. Maybe if Americans would take a civics class and actually learn something, they’d know that.

    No, because we’re supposed to insure it. Vote on 2 November.

    One of our Founding Fathers, Franklin, maybe, said it. ‘We have given you a Republic, but can you keep it?’.

    The US is a constitutional quasi-democratic republic with a politically popularized faction promoting states’ rights over a federal government. Engineered elections — gerrymandering, limiting access, etc — in individual states demonstrate the lack of federal control as does the decades of dysfunctional Congresses which weakens the republic.

    Republicans want a right wing dictator, not democracy.

    I’m sure it might be covered under my accidental death and dismemberment policy if I’m dead or lose one thumb, a toe , voting rights, etc . . .

    Like my friend Joel commented before he died, “Looks like we’ll be checking out about the right time…”

    Arguing about the precise definition of democracy – certified – guaranteed – legally binding – double rectified and busthead true – adds nothing to the point being made, serving only as a shameful distraction from the critical problem now at hand.

    The ideal that all U.S. citizens are equal, with identical rights, and with equal say at the polls – regardless of rich or poor, newly sworn or Mayflower ancestored, race-creed-color, etc – is under direct attack. By Republicans.

    Should that most precious of all American ideals fall, there is no insurance that will redeem our loss.

    Times change. Trying to stop America at rich white ‘o clock by destroying the one truly worthy ideal we have is insane. The Constitution, via our courts, can help prevent this, but mostly it’s up to the people. Vote.

    I forgot that part of my civic class 60 years ago! Insurance companies always have loop holes.

    Insurance is what you pay for but hope never to have to use. Prevention is always preferable to cure.

    Insurance companies have long, long penalized (“skinned” might be a more appropriate term) people for pre-existing conditions: smokers, hazardous occupations, or excluding certain foolish (aka “dumbass”) activities from coverage in the event of (ahem) unfortunate hospitalization or death.

    There’s not too much more stupid than going unvaccinated in a COVID-rich environment, and they’re finally doing exactly that.

    And if MAGAts want to “Take one for the team”, as encouraged by their Dear Leader and his political sycophants (all of whom are vaccinated, BTW), then (by golly, by gum) they can pay for the privilege and take their chances.

    And today’s dumbass anti-vaxxer of the day? Stan Wilson, 59, an EMT from Bartlesville, OK. Dead. Of the CO-vid. Boy, he showed them, didn’t he?

    A membership roster for the Oath Keepers, a violent extremist group whose followers have been charged in the Jan. 6 insurrection, includes ten (10) state lawmakers, congressional candidates, and local government and GOP officials.

    Republicans are modern-day Nazis, make no mistake about that.

    Dozens of Oath Keepers have been arrested in connection to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, some of them looking like a paramilitary group, wearing camo helmets and flak vests. But a list of more than 35,000 members of the Oath Keepers — obtained by an anonymous hacker and shared with ProPublica by the whistleblower group Distributed Denial of Secrets — underscores how the organization is evolving into a force within the Republican Party.

    The whole story (lots of other terrorists on their reporting):

    Insurance can’t stop bad things from physically happening – democracy and freedom are things that one constantly must fight for…

    Extreme gerrymandering, voter suppression, and election subversion. And it’s all right out in the open because they know dems will do nothing to stop them.
