“We the Peoples” Right To Vote Is Under Serious Attack By Republicans

Yesterday, I wrote a post about our voting rights and rights to voting privacy being trampled by the current administration. My post, however, was more narrow in scope than this one by my friend Gronda. She has done her research and reports on three additional areas where our voting rights are being threatened. Though much is horribly wrong in our nation right now, I see three areas as being THE most important: the environment; freedom of press/speech; and voting rights/security/privacy. All other issues will depend on these three. This is too important to let slide into the shadows, and Gronda does an excellent job shining the spotlight on the issue of voting rights, so please take a few minutes to read her post … and be sure to let her know what you think! Thank you, Gronda, for all your hard work and this very informative post!

It appears that republican lawmakers and their allies have been specifically designing strategies to do just that.

When the republican President Donald Trump and his administration should be acting to protect out states’ voting systems from foreign manipulations, as the former head of the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson described in his June 2017 testimony before the US Congress when he described Russia’s attempts to attack 21 US states’ voting data for nefarious purposes, they are in the process of attempting to cut off funding from the very office which is designated to address this problem.

  1. Voter Suppression seems foremost in the Republican mind,. With Trump’s Twitter antics, precisely the opposite effect may occur as a backlash against the Republican Party. I imagine they’re starting to see what a liability he is to them.

    • One would think they are starting to see, but I don’t see much evidence of it. A friend told me the other night that she hoped I got run over with a car … this because I was trying to explain why people are mounting protests against Trump’s policies. Sigh. Maybe someday they will come out from under the spell.
