Smith: A Warning Involving Jesus, Moses and the Karma of Voting Rights
QR’s Liberal Columnist Glenn W. Smith writes that assaults on voting rights and democracy will come back to haunt those responsible.
Here are a few modest observations on voting
rights in America, with a warning that the karmic penalty will fall heaviest on
those who misuse political and legal processes to keep their fellow citizens
from the polls.
You can’t have a democracy, or, for you voter
suppression apologists, a representative republic, without unfettered access to
the voting booth for all citizens. Such exclusion is like the New
Testament without Jesus or
Testament without Moses. You
still have some stories to tell, but they’ll be missing their heroes.
In a democracy, the hero is never you or me.
The hero is the right to vote.
