Florida Joins Other States Suppressing Voters, Passes New Restrictions

               If it isn't broke why fix it?

According to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis the 2020 election went flawlessly in Florida. No cases of fraud.

Yet, DeSantis is preparing to sign a new voter suppression law imposing restrictions on ballot boxes and mail-in voting.

Despite the push from activists, corporate leaders, and Democrats, voter restriction laws are popping up in Republican controlled states like toxic mushrooms.

This unprecedented effort among states to enact legislation with new hurdles to casting a ballot is the result of Trump supporters who can't accept reality, and that Joe Biden is our president.

According to the nonpartisan Brennan Center for Justice, nearly every state has introduced bills like this and at least five have already been enacted.

Republicans admit the last election was successful. but they argued the changes will keep Florida's elections accessible while establishing "guardrails" to prevent potential fraud in the future.

Guardrails for who?

Republicans restricting Democratic voters to ensure a chokehold on the state's politics?

Particularly irksome is the claim Republicans are trying to preserve the sanctity of our elections, when in fact they're busy assaulting our electoral system.

Lawsuits are being filed against states who adopt voter suppression laws. Hopefully they'll be successful in protecting voter's rights.
