Voting Rights are a Human Right. Full Stop. 

Progress always seems to stall for Black Americans, despite legislation aimed at improving their lives.

Names like Strom Thurman or Joe Manchin come and go. Nevertheless, the system of voting has been intentionally flawed for generations

Today, Senators will vote on the voting rights of others. And while names change throughout the course of history, this link of our decaying democracy remains shackled. 

For far too many years, we’ve had to rely on hope in order for change to occur when in actuality, what’s demanded are God-given rights that require more targeted action and less wishful thinking. 

In an ABC interview over the weekend, Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., stated, “You know, South Carolinians live, by and large, by our state motto, ‘As I breathe, I hope.’ Yes, I do have hope,” Clyburn said. “I know that these two Democrats have decided that it is much more important to them to protect the voting rights of the minority on the Senate floor than to protect the voting rights of minorities in this great country of ours, this great country, the minorities that made it possible for them to be in the position that they’re currently in. So, I hope, but I don’t think that we will change their mind. But we will see.”

Our Democratic leaders are going into the vote for voting rights, fully acknowledging that members of their own party are likely to sink whatever potential advancements can be made in the name of liberty and justice for all. 

What does Webster say about soul?

Citizens define a Nation’s soul and its ability to contribute to society without pandering to hollow campaign promises. But in exchange for our vote, we are rewarded with tangible outcomes, that is, The American Dream. Seems simple enough, right?

The last time I checked, elected leaders were elected to carry out the will of their constituents; however, we’ve allowed sinister side-switching senators to dictate whether or not our voices will be truly heard.

With a recent Quinnipiac approval rating at 33%, the Biden-Harris Administration doesn’t have time to regain trust with stumbling speeches and insufferable interviews. The people need action, and we need it today.
