Editor’s note: The moral and intellectual corruption of the Republican Party has increased exponentially under Donald Trump, giving us the most corrupt Administration in American history. Nowhere has that corruption been more flagrantly displayed that in the aggressive Republican campaign to suppress the minority vote.
And now, the Republicans have expanded that campaign to include suppressing the vote of any Americans likely to oppose Trump’s agenda. The centerpiece of their effort is to try to limit mail-in voting, because the larger the vote, the more Republicans lose.
The Republican Party’s war on voter freedom is the most prominent example of its war on America’s basic moral and democratic values.
In this article, Dan McCready lays bare the extent of the Republican campaign and its evil intent. McCready is a Marine Corps veteran and a former Democratic nominee for U.S. Congress in North Carolina.
Here are two excerpts that sum up McCready’s conclusions:
- ”Alleging fraud is a cover to rig elections by suppressing Democratic votes.”
- “It’s important to see (Republican) talk of ‘voter fraud’ for what it is: one more page from the Republican Party’s elections playbook, not all that different from its efforts to selectively restrict voting.”
Please read McCready’s article in its entirety. Keep it as a ready reference to use when you contact your U.S. Senators and Congresspeople and your State legislators and governor to urge the to pass laws putting an end to this Republican gangsterism.

Take It From Me, Voter Fraud Is Part of the G.O.P. Playbook
Republicans look the other way when electoral cheating helps them.
