Dear Editor:

Boy, boy. Do you believe in voting, all of you reading this? Isn't voting fair, democratic, just, American!

It is no secret, Republicans are trying to pass restrictive voting laws in many states. Watch the news! No, not Fox News, it is not fair. Please watch or listen to Democracy Now, please!

You know, I always thought and was told voting was American; here in the good ole USA we can vote. Well, that is not how it is in reality.

Trump tried to steal an election with lies. The Republican Party is trying to stop minorities and Democrats from voting, stop mail-in voting, early voting, no drop boxes, gerrymandering, did I forget some?

That is not American to me, it is not! That is like corrupt nations on this planet, dictatorships. These United States should have the fairest, easiest and most democratic elections anywhere. That is American to me.

My advice: Call your congressmen and speak your disgust about voter suppression and support the Democratic Party and their efforts to make voting fair and easy. Do it!
