It’s a shame that we have to pass voter protection laws but we have an obligation to our democracy, to each other, and this great experiment to ensure that the principles of the Declaration of Independence are protected from the political machinations of those whose goal is political power at any cost.
“We hold these truths to be self evident that all men (mankind) are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It Does NOT Say:
1. All men are created equal as long as their like me.
2. Everyone one has the right to their opinion as long as it agrees with mine.
3. Everyone has the right to pursue there own happiness as long as I’m not offended by it.
4. You can do anything you want as long as Nothing you do has Any impact on me what so ever including how I feel about it.
"To whom much is given, from him much is expected" is the least this sentence needs to stand on its own. I’m not a Christian but for those on the right the Christian Bible does it better, "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required," Luke 12:48 in the King James Version.
This is an OBLIGATION we all share. It past time we codify the protections into law. And I would go one step further and say codify it into the constitution.
