Some whistle blowing going on now with the voter suppression tactics that were attempted by the GOP this past election. A quote well worth noting from this article:
“I know that the cutting out of the Sunday before Election Day was one of their targets only because that’s a big day when the black churches organize themselves,” the anonymous longtime GOP consultant told the newspaper.
As I mentioned previously, this is a disgrace in terms of the idea of democracy because this is not an attempt to change the minds of people based on your policy positions. It is simply an effort to shut people off from the election process and suppress their voices. Democracies and people who claim to be patriotic do not do that. Dictatorships and other oppressive political systems do. Message to the GOP about democracy: you’re doing it wrong, at best, and downright immorally, at worst.
