Heads I win, tails you lose. That is the basic not-so-Grand Old Party’s (GOP) strategy to take over the country. In spite of his opponent shouting that the election had been corrupted, California Governor Gavin Newsome (D) fought off his attackers and kept his job, CNN reported. The Republicans have no issues nor elementary stands to base their campaigns upon, it seems. So they have resorted to debasing the foundation of our very democracy and overtake our government in a soft coup. Enter superhero President Barack Obama.
Republicans call out that the election was “rigged,” and GOP candidates are working to undermine that which allows our democracy to function. A free and fair election open to everyone is a precious right. Sure, we have that wonky Electoral College, but it will soon fall by the wayside along with the antiquated filibuster rule (not law), if Democrats manage to stay in power.
But that means fighting against those who are dicing up our elections in a massive corrupt propaganda campaign that promotes the GOP’s new outrageous state election laws. It is a time to change all of that.
President Obama does not speak all that often, so when he does, the chaotic room filled with the thousand items necessary to living goes quiet. People listen:
‘The Freedom to Vote Act just introduced in the Senate would strengthen our democracy by making it easier for people to vote and harder for politicians and special interests to drown out the voices of ordinary Americans. I support it, and every Senator should do the same.’
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Jaime Harrison released a statement on twitter that read:
‘Once again, voters rejected the Republican Party’s denial of the pandemic sweeping our country and their subsequent refusal to address it, rejected Republicans’ disproved conspiracy theories about our elections, and rejected Republicans’ unwavering loyalty to the man who caused it all — Donald Trump.’
It appears the fight is on — big time.
