I have no doubt that President Obama would be re-elected if the GOP did not tamper with the elections. Unfortunately, the Republican Party is a party without honor and who would cheat and suppress voters in order to win, especially when they know that their chances of winning are slim to none.
I feel nauseated to see what is happening and how the GOP is raping our country, our constitution and our rights but most of all I feel sick that we are letting it happen.
Out of the 50 States of the Union, 29 have a Republican Governor and 27 a Republican Legislature. These states are more than willing to do whatever is necessary to win. They have no scruples but that is nothing new; we remember how they stole the elections in 2004! Now, they are at it again but this time they are changing the voting laws in their states to make it more difficult for minorities and seniors to vote. They are well aware that these groups will vote democratic and are either the majority or could tilt the balance towards more electoral votes for President Obama.
We must do everything within our power to help secure the democratic vote. Help people in your area to obtain a valid ID, help them obtain an absentee ballot, offer to drive them to the voting polls. If you can, try to rent a van so you can drive more people to vote. We allowed the Republicans to cheat in the past, but this time we must not sit idle because this time the danger is even greater. We will be allowing a puppet to hold a pen and sign whatever he is ordered by Grover Norquist and the Americans for Tax Reform.
When a country allows things like this to happen, we stop being a democracy and if we just whine but do nothing to stop it we are silent conspirators of the destruction of this society, this country and the collective future of this nation.
