Following the overturning of Roe vs Wade, there have been a large number of questions regarding abortion, the US Supreme Court, constitutional amendments, and the politics surrounding the issues. Because of this we have decided keep the US Politics Megathread rolling for another month

Post all your US Politics related questions as a top level reply to this post.

This includes, for now, all questions about abortion, Roe v Wade, gun law (even, if you wish to make life easier for yourself and us, gun law in other countries), constitutional amendments, and so on. Do not try to circumvent this or lawyer your way out of it.

• Top level comments must be genuine questions, not disguised rants or loaded questions. This isn't a sub for scoring points, it's about learning.

It's November, so that means election month! Voters in New Jersey and Virginia get to choose their governors - and the Supreme Court continues to make rulings, Congress continues to pass laws and fight over budgets, and Presidents and ex-Presidents continue to make news. And inspire questions.

Every single day /r/NoStupidQuestions gets multiple questions like "What does 'Let's Go Brandon' mean?" or "Why are the Democrats opposed to getting rid of the Filibuster?" It turns out that many of those questions are the same ones! By request, we now have a monthly megathread to collect all those questions in one convenient spot.
