As we wake to news about the United States being a downgraded Democracy this morning, only one party is responsible for that fact. The Republican party runs on obstruction and suppressing the vote of ordinary Americans. In Montana this has taken the form of putting barriers in front of the Native and youth vote because, in the end, the GOP chooses to offer no platform that appeals to these groups. If you can't win on the issues, cheating will do is apparently the new norm. However, it should not be the case. Pass Voting Rights now or watch this country further shift to authoritarianism and fascism. You should not leave the Senate for the holidays until Voting Rights are secured in this country again. If you need to cheat to win, you do not deserve the offices you hold.
