I was just over at Casey's Place, and I about swallowed my tongue in shock! Check these two articles. People, what we don't know, what we don't check into, can literally take our rights away!! It takes all of us to check and share these matters!! Please, PLEASE don't be asleep at the wheel!!!
The State of Michigan, a swing state, had/has a plan to block the voting right of those who have had their home foreclosed!!!!!! Please read this.
Then after, that, take a look at this one:
Taken directly from Newsweek
It was a mainstay of Jim Crow segregation: for 100 years after the Civil War, Southern white Democrats kept eligible blacks from voting with poll taxes, literacy tests and property requirements. Starting in the 1960s, the U.S. Supreme Court declared these assaults on the heart of American democracy unconstitutional.
Now, with the help of a 2008 Supreme Court decision, Crawford vs. Marion County (Indiana) Election Board, white Republicans in some areas will keep eligible blacks from voting by requiring driver's licenses. Not only is this new-fangled discrimination constitutional, it's spreading.
What year are we living in????? I though it was 2008, but ......
God help us all if we ignore the signs.
