The Myth of true and fair elections

Not only did Jeb Bush block eligible Black voters from voting to give his brother the "deserter" and future war criminal the 2000 Presidential election. As example of Black lives never mattering in America, after the criminal disenfranchised Black voters were exonerated in 2001 the racist court and justice department illegally withheld voting rights from the Black voters until after the 2002 midterm elections. No one was held criminally responsible for denying the rights of citizenship for those Black Floridian's because the perpetrators was the law makers themselves.

Over the last 15 years the Republican Party has honed its skills at rigging local and federal elections. It is absurd for anyone to believe that States are changing voting laws that hurt Black and poor people for voter security reason, and not accepted voter exclusion of the Black and poor in these states.

The (pardon the pun) Elephant in the room is that no one can make a cogent argument that true and fair elections are possible in America anymore. Most Democrats I talk to tell me we need to overwhelm the polls on Election Day to get around rigged machines and voter caging and voter suppression. That's Bull sh*t!

America needs to quit chasing the lie of its sickness and try to live up to the intended "meaning of its creeds".
