Fishrrman fearless prediction:
The "abortion issue" is going to do far more damage to Republicans over time in the red states, than in the blue states.

Only if dumb stupid ignorant imbecilic idiotic morons like Donald Trump continue to make it a national issue.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.     -Dwight Eisenhower-

"The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals ... it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government ... it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the government."     -Ayn Rand-

The Dobbs decision has turned out to be a Pyrrhic Victory -- a [painful] gift that will just "keep on giving".

There are cohorts and cohorts of young women that the Pubbies are NEVER going to "reach" because of it. And even as they grow older, they're not going to change their voting patterns in any great degree...

I'll take you up on that. Liberal women have a presence in small town America, even in the red states... But a powerful matriarchy still exists in country places, and powerful grandmothers teach their grandchildren...

Sure they rebel in their teens, and sure they do stupid stuff, but they have been taught right from wrong by the wise. Generally (young ladies first) they tend to come back around to what their family believes... and especially so when they first find an occasion to pass a child from their belly.

Mothers tend to be conservative here in the great unwashed red states.

  • I was a "conspiracy theorist". Now I'm just right.
Abortion is a state issue and should stay there.
Precisely.

Especially when emoting women are emoting as if these was a Federal ban on abortions because Roe was overturned. The claimed "Right" was wrong in the first place, and in no way would have been part of Original Intent.

If someone doesn't like the rules in their state, they are still free to travel to a state where they like the rules, or even move there.

At its core, that is what Federalism is about. These United States.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

It would appear Mr. T doesn’t understand that - which is also the crux of the Court’s decision.

That should come as no surprise at all.
