Tell Congress to #RestoreTheVote

Alabama Voter ID
EYE am sick and tired of being sick and tired of the media enabled  fake outrage , and demands for a DOJ investigation, after Alabama closed 31 DMV offices in mostly poor, rural counties with majority African-American populations. under the guise of saving money.

EYE am sick and tired of the pretense and hand wringing. Let's get real. This is #Sweet Home Alabama people.

The home of Jimmie Lee Jackson.
The Home of some First Class Funerals. 
The Home of Viola Luzzio.
The Home of Amelia Boynton Robinson.
The Home of Bull Conner
The Cradle of the Confederacy
 he Home of Segregation Today, Segregation Tomorrow, Segregation Forever.
The Home of Shelby Co. vs Holder
The Home of Selma.
It's not rocket science.

Talk is cheap. Now is the time to put up or shut up. Instead of calling for investigations after the fact, call on Congress to restore the Voting Rights Act. Instead of complaining about the results after enabling the results, call on the Alabama State Legislature to repeal the Voter ID Bill.

We must strongly encourage both Houses of the U.S. Congress to enact strong legislation to restore, strengthen and modernize the Voting Rights Act of 1965 when they return to Washington, D.C. after the November election for the “lame duck” session. We need to ensure that Americans’ right to vote is not compromised!

Action We Should Take >>
