What To Do When They “Let” Us Win Elections
POSTED BY VICTORIA COLLIER 16PC ON NOVEMBER 09, 2011
Yesterday we witnessed an increasingly rare phenomenon: We the People won at the ballot box.
In Ohio and Mississippi voters successfully killed two bills that furthered the Union-Busting, Women-Hating agenda of the extreme right. Senate Bill 5 was defeated by a massive statewide labor coalition, fighting to reclaim their right to collectively bargain in the Buckeye State. In the Bible Belt, women — and more than a few good southern men — stood together to defeat an initiative that would have defined life at the beginning of fertilization, a head-on challenge to Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose.
We’re happy, of course, for the workers of Ohio who still own their voices, and the women in Mississippi who still own their bodies. But there’s a real downside to yesterday’s news for progressive-minded Election Integrity activists.
Every time “our side” wins at the voting booth, it becomes much more difficult to talk about our favorite topic: computerized election fraud.
