As a Norwegian living in Norway, I am far away from the current political drama unfolding in the US every day. However, I find it slightly fascinating to hear (from time to time) that Republicans are concerned about the concept of “Freedom”, as they are truly the ones that do not accept REAL freedom.
E.g. should all women have the right to decide for themselves when it comes to decisions concerning their own health care (like e.g. abortion)? Me (and most democrats): Yes. Republicans: No.
Should the government force everyone to get vaccinated against Covid-19, to ensure the freedom of good health for everyone? Note: That would be similar to what every American government has done prior to 2020 (when it comes to different diseases like e.g. chickenpox). Me (and most democrats): Yes. Republicans: No
Should we make it easier for everyone to vote? Me (and most democrats except a Senator from West Virginia): Yes. Republicans: No
Should we improve the everyday life of all Americans like bringing down the cost of medicine etc.. ? Me (and most democrats except a Senator from Arizona): Yes. Republicans: No.
The way I see it, democrats work hard every day to secure the life of every American, while Republicans do the opposite. It is difficult to grasp that Republicans are supported by 50 % of the population. It truly makes no sense at all.
