I am frequently told by young Americans that politics is filled with dishonest people so it makes no difference who is elected. Most of those under 35 are cynical and dislike any aspect of our political system. Just ask one of these Americans if there really is a difference as to who is elected to public office. Former President George Bush was barely elected, and he proceeded to stack the US Supreme Court with conservatives who believe their primary task in life is ensuring that our beloved 1% never are endangered by any action of government. George appointed Justice Roberts and Justice Alioto, and it is these men who are engaged in a war against democracy in America. The Supreme Court struck down a decision by a Judge who insisted the Texas voter ID law was unconstitutional. It requires an ID. OH, one can submit an ID for carrying a concealed weapon, but one cannot use an ID given to college students. Check that one out for “democracy.”
During the past presidential election over TWO HUNDRED MILLION VOTED. Yes, there were some invalid votes. This figure comes to FEWER THAN TWO HUNDRED. So, why the need for a voter ID? The answer is simple, to prevent poor people from voting, to prevent college students from voting. Our Supreme Court is controlled by those who oppose democracy in this nation. First, the majority claim that corporations are entitled to rights of PEOPLE, now they insist people cannot vote.
Any young person who refuses to vote on ground all politicians are crooks, is simply empowering the wealthy to become even more powerful.
