You might be feeling a little down about the state of politics in the US. The gridlock, political bickering, and overbearing control corporations and the rich have on this country are probably rightfully causing frustration and perhaps despair. But before you decide voting just doesn’t matter, please consider these facts that I’ll present in a series over the coming days:
Voting Rights – Democrat versus Republican
Democrats want to make it easy for every American to vote. They fight for voting rights of ALL Americans. Republicans want to pass laws to make it less convenient to vote and they want to suppress minority votes. They scream about voter fraud that doesn’t exist. It simply isn’t a significant problem in this country. Their only interests lie in suppressing the votes of minorities and the poor. They argue you should be able to buy a gun without an ID but not vote? They argue that voting early invites fraud? It is pretty obvious what their goal is and it has way more to do with preventing honest voting than voter fraud. Your vote matters!
