1979, the year the ERA was supposed to be ratified, was the same year that I graduated from high school. 

I was a news junkie even back then so I was pretty aware of the struggle, though only peripherally.

I just assumed it would be ratified, because why wouldn’t it?

It was shameful that it failed back in 1979 and it is an even more shameful that it remains unratified forty years later. 

I can tell you one thing, if it had been ratified back then we would not today be dealing with states closing Planned Parenthood facilities, denying women birth control, and attempting to take away their reproduction rights.

At least that’s the way it was supposed to work.

    “something is changing in the ground right now, because those members are telling us they are worried about cronyism, about misspending, about, you know, buying a $50 Friends of the NRA raffle ticket to help support the cause of the Second Amendment, and learning that Wayne LaPierre had suits that were $3,000 and $4,000 apiece, trips on private jets with his family, an expense account that paid for hairdressing and stylists.

    These members are very concerned about what’s behind the curtain.”<WP
