While You Where Sleeping...

I am truly troubled by the conspiracy to undermine the American voter's right to vote, especially Democratic voters, by the new laws that are being enacted in States that were closely contested, but won by Obama in 2008.  What's occurring is the systematic elimination of those voters that voted for Obama in 2008.  The requirement that voters 'must' have a government issued identification card prior to being allowed to vote is a regression into the 'Jim Crow' tactics used to prevent the poor, Hispanic, Black, and elderly from voting in the 2012 general election.  In addition, this restriction targets college students, another group that solidly support Obama.

Another matter that troubles me is the inability of Obama's youthful supporters to understand the ramifications of not giving these changes in the ability to vote serious thought.  Young Blacks simply are not as interested as they should be in the conspiracy to rob them of the right to vote... how ironic can this be - losing the right to vote because you are not involved?  It is devastating!

In a democracy, silence is not golden; it is condonance in the face of injustices; it is fear, where the thought of reprisal fosters control – Rodney A. Davis
