Republicans are passing voter ID laws all over the country, in what some political watchers believe is a nationwide attempt at voter suppression. Gerard Bush writes in the Huffington Post that there is a way voters can fight back.
From the Huffington Post:
Similar to the methodology that enabled the overthrow of oppressive governments in the Middle East, i.e Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and now Syria, the public no longer consumes its news and information through the prism of state controlled media or through the lens claiming “Fair and Balanced” but are talking among themselves, as a community, and deciding what issues are among the top concerns and require urgent attention.
The people of Florida are divided up into so many different parts it could actually be viewed as several different states in one. The Panhandle evoking much more of a “Georgia on my mind feeling,” than one might think of in comparison to the sunny post cards and guayaberas of Miami. Or there is the Gulf-Coast with its easy Louisiana-Alabama hybrid vibe, all of which experience their own brand of persnickety and economies as unique to the population as the place itself. But what all of these communities do have in common is the ability to communicate across channels and learn what is happening statewide.
