My worst nightmare

15 Feb

Palin elected president. The United States leaves the UN, invades Iran. Israel given blank check of US support in hopes that they spark a world ending holy war, as predicted in Revelations. The teaching of evolution in public schools is made a crime (again), Bible class substituted instead. Mandatory school prayer is reinstated. Roe v Wade overturned, women no longer masters of their own bodies. “Shoot on sight” orders issued to all law enforcement officials posted along US/Mexico border.

Corporations exempted from all taxes and restrictions. Internet, TV, newspaper, and radio censors put into place to “protect the moral integrity of America”. NPR and PBS shut down. Ownership of firearms made mandatory like in Texas. People are encouraged to bring guns into schools, churches, and places that serve alcohol. Healthcare reform blocked by insurance companies who do not want competition, while more and more people go bankrupt each year, unable to pay insurance bills.

Homosexuality made a crime, anti-gay laws passed and implemented. All gays kicked out of military, regardless if they can speak fluent Arabic or not.

Research into clean energy stopped at behest of oil companies. Environmental Protection Agency closed or budget seriously cut. Protective regulations of all kinds repealed under guise of “limiting government involvement”, at the same time amendments or measures re-writing history and recognizing US as a Christian nation under Jesus Christ are passed.

That’s as big of a nightmare as I’d like to imagine right now. I wonder how many of those things will come true in the next few years if religious republicans with a doomsday complex get elected again.
