Combating ISIS is Nothing Compared to Fighting for Voting Rights

GOP-RED States Sell Voter Fraud Much Like SIS Sells "Freedom"

We have Been Watching: Now is the Time to Act


All sorts of “hot button” issues come and go just as sure as the tides come and go - all the while we wait for the next “even hotter” issue to confront us. However, there no no more-important issue than protecting voter rights. It is the most-enduring and most-fundamental of all our rights as it shows the basic reflection of our democratic greatness ... the backdrop for this post comes from here:

In Texas, Imani Clark, a Black state college student and client of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in the lawsuit that declared Texas’s strict voter ID law unconstitutional, was unable to vote with her student ID as she had in the past. Thousands of other students like Imani were also disenfranchised.

In Alabama, a 92-year-old great-grandmother was disfranchised by the secretary of state’s last-minute determination that a photo ID issued by public housing authorities is not acceptable ID for voting. She had previously voted with a utility bill.

These are just two of familiar stories in each of the 14 states with restrictive voting laws that took effect for the first time during this election season.

If the GOP can't win the votes they need, then the next thing to do is stop, slowdown, suppress, or otherwise make it so difficult that is turns voters off and they simply walk away from the polls.

This is very huge major issue. For those who do not agree or not see the danger in this voter suppression (and yes, it is blatant raw voter suppression), then I pity them … just imagine it were you and your vote that were impacted?  

My fellow Americans: it is well past the time to take a stand and stand up and protect this, our most-fundamental and cherished right: the right to vote free and open, unhampered, or restricted in any way like we see these day.
