Saturday morning rambling: Voters threatened?

Posted on Updated on

A few days ago, we learned of the Chicago pastor who received death threats.  In the State of New York, voters received a letter warning them to get out and vote.  Read the NY Post article here.

I have a real problem with both of these incidents.  Why?  Because, even at an early age I was taught the right to vote was not only a right afforded to all Americans, but a civic duty.  As I got older, reading books, watching the news, talking with people like veterans, I realized, all the sacrifices made for that right.

We had the Women’s Suffrage (now we have the fake “War on Women”),  we had the Civil Rights movement, we’ve had wars.  All filled with people who shed their blood, lost their livelihoods, families, homes, friends all so we can freely exercise that one precious right.  Voting.

So, when our voting rights get violated by the very people claiming to protect that right, It makes me more than angry.  It makes me angry, not only because fear is a powerful tool to keep the people down, it also shows complete and total disregard for the millions of people that sacrificed.

Its reprehensible.

    One of my democratic friends complained of getting a similar letter from the republicans in 2010 or 2012. I didn’t see the letter and could hardly believe they would send out a letter like that but you never know. Such tactics are despicable and a real turnoff.

      I don’t believe the Republicans sent a letter out in 2010. Probably not 2012, either. I would have gotten one. I would remember it.
