As Democrats continue the struggle to get Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to eliminate the filibuster, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman warns that democracy could be slipping away, a statement that political analysts and historians have been warning about.
History provides a powerful argument for eliminating the filibuster and passing voting rights legislation. This is the priority on the domestic agenda for 2022. #HereRightMatters https://t.co/Pd3fcrpGgI

To some, it may seem like hysteria, just another scare tactic to convince people to vote Democrat in the 2022 midterms. However, the GOP is passing voter suppression laws across the country, eliminating early voting and Sunday voting days, cutting down voting locations to the smallest number possible, and gerrymandering marginalized groups out of voting existence. The great democratic experiment called the United States is truly in jeopardy, and one of the men who risked his life to protect it is warning about its possible demise. It’s a warning no American should take lightly.
The voting rights bill is not just a priority for the Democratic Party, it should be a priority for everyone who cares about having the right to vote. After supporters of the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice made every move they could to overturn a democratic election in 2020, and Trump pressured elected leaders and even poll workers across the country to “find” enough votes to put him back in the White House, protecting democracy has become more crucial to this country than ever before.
Twitter was quick to react to Vindman’s warning. Read some of their comments below:
