Afraid to DEBATE ???

I ended my last blog entry bemoaning the fact that the current Republican Senators are refusing to follow our country's democratic system of debating an issue, coming to a compromise and acting on it. Now, as incredulous as it is, they have gone one step further. They actually forced a vote, not on an issue, but as to whether they would simply allow a DEBATE on an issue!

The issue they are so afraid of even debating in front of the American people refers to voter suppression and the 18 states with Republican Governors and other officials who have enacted more than 30 laws that will make voting more difficult.

As Schumer asked … “Are we going to let reactionary state legislatures drag us back into the muck of voter suppression ? Are we going to let the most dishonest president in history continue to poison our democracy from the inside? ...or will we defend what generations of Americans have fought and died for … the sacred right to vote?”

Well, the Senate has spoken … all 50 Republicans voted NOT TO ALLOW A DEBATE on this critical issue. Once again they have shown their true colors ! Does it not occur to any of them that these strategic moves to make it harder for a large part of the public to vote (basically those that come out in large part for Democrats) are more proof that they know they won't win re-election on merit.

Hopefully at mid terms we can send a message they will understand.

Yes, it's a given, they've apparently decided they can only win by cheating and further more their value system allows them to do so. That should tell any thinking person something!
