I know people don’t find value in voting—especially given the two party system and rampant injustice in this country—but honest to god, the lurching rightward of the courts has concerned me for years.

And now it’s happening. And it really makes me feel sick.
And voting is the only way to stop it. It just is.

Part of the reason @Hegemommy and I started this #TeamLegal business is to explain how the law impacts people.

I think a lot of people are put off by all the jargon and so they don’t pay much attention to the courts.
I’m begging everyone to pay more attention to the courts. Not just the Supreme Court. But lower courts, too.
Congressional power changes hands every few years, as does control of the White House.

But the courts are far more static. The people this illegitimate orange-tinted president has appointed to the federal judiciary will be ruling on people’s civil rights for DECADES.
And I guess I fundamentally don’t understand how you square that with principled non-voting.

I’m really not trying to shame people. I just don’t get it.
All I can promise to do is keep covering the courts and keep trying to explain shit as best I can.
