Voter disenfranchisement needs to be snuffed out, just the same as voter fraud. That should be the goal, knowing, as in any other aspect of life, we’ll never do so 100% (it’s a challenge to impart such advice on my daughters). Getting an ID card isn’t a tall order in my book. If you can get a ride to vote, you can get a ride to DMV for an ID.
As I’ve said before, I think it’s too sweeping a generalization to tag the GOP in its entirety of supporting voter suppression, including the south. If it was so widespread, how would the likes of Artur Davis, Angela McGlowan & Tim Scott rise to prominence (not to mention Nikki Haley)?? The media can blow up whichever stories they want, whatever suits the purposes of whomever wants to make a point. We, along with the aforementioned folks, can exert pressure to squeeze out such nefarious behavior, just like we can on the folks who choose not to bake cakes for this demographic or that (the only real thing that bothered me about Gary Johnson in the debate last Friday). The 1st amendment’s guarantee of freedom of speech & to “peaceably assemble” empowers US to affect such change toward a more desirable society.
Once they get into office, the majority of democrats’ policies are destructive to everyone. And what Bernie wants to do is that on steroids! Those policies tend to foster dependence & entrench in power the already-strong/wealthy. I usually tend to give people the benefit of the doubt, so I don’t subscribe to the notion that they do it on purpose … but maybe they do. If that’s a rap on the GOP, democrats, being human, can’t be immune to the possibility. Perhaps they are driven solely by the power derived from handing out freebies to those in lower income quintiles with one hand, while simultaneously handing out favors with the other hand to those at the other end of the income spectrum, to help them maintain their status.
Kinda abbreviated, but there it is.
