We will fight in the shade

Earlier this afternoon, I wrote about voter suppression and the GOP’s attempts to take away the voices of Blacks, Hispanics, and the poor. Our friend Brosephus lives in Georgia and he has written about one of those many attempts in his home state. The blatant attempts to take away our voices are so against what the Founders of this nation envisioned … let’s hope we can stop them in their tracks before the next election! Thank you, Brosephus, for helping us understand the realities, understand just how corrupt these attempts are.

The Mind of Brosephus

Years ago, I got to meet Gerard Butler, and our conversation humorously revolved around this particular movie. He told me about one time sitting next to a woman on a plane who was watching the movie 300, and the woman was oblivious to the fact she was sitting next to King Leonidas himself. Halfway through the movie, he says he tapped her on the shoulder to get her attention, pointed at himself on the screen, and pointed out it was him. We laughed at how people can be so focused on something that they’re clueless about what’s going on all around them.

Georgia House Bill 531 reminds me of that conversation, this movie, and the above scene in particular. So, let me take you on a quick journey through my cortex and see if you agree.

I find it funny that these same people that understand that the right to vote is in the constitution and they feel it can be restricted and regulated, yet the right to arms … untouchable under any circumstances. It clearly shows that again even in this it is not about their principles, it is about their holding on to power. The minority ruling over the majority. One party rule. Reminds me of places like China and Russia? Hugs

    • Well, my friend, if the majority of the Republicans have their way, this nation would no longer be a democratic republic. If they have their way, making it harder than ever before for people to vote, then we will live under a dictatorship that will begin in January 2025 and last until … well, until the people of this nation rebel. You are 100% right when you say this isn’t about their principles … for they have no principles, no values, no morals, no conscience. They thrive on two things, power & money. And they will lie, cheat, steal, and even murder to get those two things. Hugs

  2. I thought that was a reference to “then we will die in the shade!”
    Thank you, Jill, for bringing us this reminder of the importance of voter suppression, and couched in such interesting terms!
    Stay safe,
