Since the Democrats have a majority in the House of Representatives and they are the so-called compassionate party why aren’t they politicking to abolish the death penalty and for an equal rights amendment (ERA)?
Because they don’t want to abolish the death penalty and they don’t want equal rights for women.
So that makes them no better than Republicans. That’s about all the equal I see in the USA government: on all levels from local to federal: Democrats and Republicans are equal, which makes us a one party system.
Equal pay for equal work is not the same as equal rights. Women are sick of band-aid approaches and short-term fixes used to pacify them as equally worthy citizens. Women’s rights need to be the same as everybody else’s and they are not. Inserting the mirage of equal women under the title of ‘all men are created equal’ did not result in equality for women. If it had, it wouldn’t be a mirage; it would be real.
The USA is supposed to separate church from state according to their Constitution, yet they institutionalize a death penalty based on revenge supported by an ‘eye for an eye’ teaching in the bible – a religious book anonymously written, and anonymously edited a multitude of times to reflect the times.
Sparing a life is liberal. Taking a life is conservative.
Giving all humans the same rights is liberal. Giving certain groups of humans different rights is conservative.
So what are we?
We’re all conservative, except for those few who believe in equality for all.
The masses of people breaking our laws to enter our country claim to have all the answers for us. They do not represent a third party or even a second party. They represent themselves as lawbreakers who can’t even care for themselves, much less their families.
If premeditated murder is wrong, then it’s equally wrong to plan and execute the murder of an offender of that law.
Logic serves better to keep us equal under the law than does religion or laws that empower some groups or demographics over others.
What’s right for one or wrong for one needs to be right or wrong for all.
If a law cannot be applied equally, then abolish the law or don’t make the law in the first place.
Equality needs to be the litmus test of whether a proposed law becomes a law, then it needs a probation period to assess whether it should become a permanent law or a renewable law.
