Back in the day - like the 1930's there was this thing called a Poll Tax.
The poll tax was instituted by southern states to try and keep poorer black people from voting. The reason being they wanted to control the vote.
Now mistake me if I'm wrong, but isn't America supposed to be the epitomy of a working democracy. You ever hear 'We the people, for the people'?
Shouldn't everyone have a fair chance to cast their choice?
The poll-tax was officially banned a long time ago. But leave it to Republicans to create new poll-taxes. A poll-tax is anything that keeps someone from voting.
Whether it's a flyer stating that Democrats are supposed to vote on Wednesday - Election Day is ALWAYS The First Tuesday in November. There is only one election day for ALL voters be it Republican or Democrat and that is tomorrow.
Cheating to win an election should be condemnable by death. In my opinion it is treason of the greatest kind.
It seems like every election we see the right wing try their hardest to keep people known to vote democrat from voting.
The poorest communities, and best democrat areas have as much as a 6 hour wait to vote - even on early voting days.
6 hours @ $10 per hour is a $60 fee to vote. That is a poll-tax. People should not have long waits. The system is broken, and we need to fix it.
We need to guard our democracy. This is paramount, or one day we will wake up and realize that we live in Nazi Germany, and there will be nothing we can do about it.
This election is not over - if you need to wait 12 hours - you have to vote, this is the most important election of our lives. This is the biggest race. We need Change. We need it now!
