50 years ago Roe versus Wade was decided by the US Supreme Court in a 7-2 vote. One democrat and one republican appointed justice voted against Roe, while 2 democrat justices and 5 republican justices voted for it. Today all 6 republican appointed justices voted against it while all 3 democrat appointed justices voted for it. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily life is but a dream!

There are any number of economic, social and political changes over the last 50 years that are driving the increasing partisan divide in the USA. On top of all of this the white population has gone from 87.7% of the US population in 1970 and to 61.6% in 2020. Given the current rate of illegal immigration whites will be less than 50% come 2030, increasing the partisan political divide in the USA.

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
