    vote.  The diary is totally correct.  No one should have to suffer to get to the ballot box--especially when the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act was passed.

    Systemically, the Repblicans have redistricted an area, messed with voting machines, flooded the airwaves with annoying, repulsive ads, disenfranchised voters, changed laws, stolen ballots and countless other tactics in order to steal the election.  We even witnessed outright lying in the press and in the polls.

    With all that, how can people still vote for the GOP?  Is their racism that strong that they would sacrifice their integrity to lend their support behind the RW?

    Furthermore, why in the hell aren't the perpetrators in jail yet.  Some of these crooks were caught red handed. Hell, some even remained on the ballot.  This is disgusting.

    For the folks who support those who infringe on the right to vote, they are no better than traitors to their country. These enablers are no better than the crooks who openly practice such wrongdoing in their own country.
