Hate to praise a Republican too highly but at least the Governor of South Carolina will not make their electorate suffer wrack, ruin and then yank your chance to cast your ballot in a month. For kicks.
That’s fracking ridiculous.
Scott can’t even give a couple more days leeway to residents whose plans just didn’t include a Cat 4 Hurricane?
And all atop the existing barriers standing between the disenfranchised and their most prized American possession … the freedom to choose whichever political asses you can live with and pull the lever for them.
Not even mentioning what this storm could do to home ballot users, with USPS and FEMA on the same project, as it were.
Democrats have a heavier lift in front of them than we expected, after Trump KoolAid swept the collective gorge of the Tea Party. The Lipton Brigade just got a little more sexist, a lot more racist and swung smoothly to TRUMP.
We are idiots if we can’t get this humiliating Ugly American bounced off the global political stage.
If you choose not to vote or to go with a third or fourth candidate option, there should be an implied restriction on ANY future bitching and pearl-clutching while TRUMP is in charge.
So if you won’t or can’t vote for yourself, at least think about making that ballot about the fellow progressives who have been unjustly denied their own right to touch a voting machine.
Even if they’d voted since 1948.
It’s some dirty politicking to treat democracy like a giant game of Jenga, balancing acts that rarely end well for the average Jane.
The only fraud here is the growing distance between truth and power in this hypopoliticized and bifurcated country.
The least we can do is use our voices to help the Regressives from getting us to full on FUBAR by 2020. This is not the time to stop speaking up.
Politics is one highly vocal game.
