Law an­other at­tempt to take away right to vote

The Ambler Gazette - - OPINION -

To the Ed­i­torW

It has been said that men­nVyOvDnLD’V 9RWHU ,GHnWL­fiFD­tion law is the most re­stricted voter leg­is­la­tion com­pared to the 19 states that have es­tab­lished voter laws. These Republicans are se­ri­ous in their cru­sade to strip away a fun­da­men­tal hu­man right. That is why you have to vote.

menn­syl­va­nia is a swing state with mhiladel­phia and mitts­burgh hav­ing a large pop­u­la­tion of Demo­cratic black vot­ers; some­thing had to be done if the Republicans are expected to win menn­syl­va­nia. The only vi­able op­tion is to keep black vot­ers from vot­ing.

In the July 18 edition of the mhiladel­phia In­quirer, one of its ar­ti­cles read “The over 80 vot­ers are hit hard by the voter I.D. law.” For ex­am­ple, this cre­ates an is­sue for se­niors born out­side of menn­syl­va­nia and Amer­ica. Voter fraud is the rea­son given for the en­act­ment of this law, how­ever, since there is no evLGHnFH RU MuVWL­fiFDWLRn RI VuFK fraud, we know the rea­son and who the tar­get is aimed for. Black se­niors know all about their in­tent; it has never changed since the Civil tar. te will be pre­pared.

The old adage “Noth­ing new un­der the sun” can be found in the Bi­ble, the book of Ec­cle­si­astes, Chap­ter 1, Verse 9. Throughout the decades, many black se­niors over the age of 80 years old have ex­pe­ri­enced this type of be­hav­ior from God-fear­ing white Chris­tian Republicans. te have sur­vived many ob­sta­cles through our Lord and Sav­ior, Je­sus Christ, who an­swers prayers. Through sup­pli­ca­tion, many of us have asked that his will be done in this bat­tle and have placed out trust in his holy word.

The Republicans have tar­geted black vot­ers, plac­ing us in the spot­light. Let us take ad­van­tage of this op­por­tu­nity to state some of our con­cerns that no one wants to dis­cuss.

Now when they put the Con­sti­tu­tion to­gether, it was laced with ra­cial though. As the coun­try grew, it be­came rich from all of that free la­bor. lur whole ex­is­tence from 1776 to 1865 (89 yearsF con­trib­uted mainly to the wealth of the north. The bot­tom line, black vot­ers from 1776 un­til this very day fought and have FRnWLnuHG WR fiJKW IRU HvHUy­thing that gives us the il­lu­sion we are Amer­i­can cit­i­zens. If we stud­ied Amer­i­can his­tory, we would dis­cover just have much we have been de­nied.

Black vot­ers, pre­pare and vote to give our­selves a voice and to dis­man­tle the Republicans’ strat­egy. At the same time, we must de­cide should wH FRnWLnuH WR fiJKW RU VKRuOG we be­come crit­i­cal thinkers and build our com­mu­niWLHV WR EHnH­fiW RuUVHOvHV, RuU chil­dren and their fu­ture. It is your choice; it is your vote. Vote.
