MLK Fought for Voting Rights

"So long as I do not firmly and irrevocably possess the right to vote I do not possess myself."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Republican and Tea Party agree.

And they wish to obstruct, suppress and prevent the right to vote of those who would dare vote non-Republican.

This is an attack on democracy itself: Such is the Republican Party. Cantor, Walker, Ryan—sick and cowardly as those in the Party who go along with the attack on civil rights for the sake of political convenience.

The anti-equality party lost the war on civil rights, on liberty.

But the civil rights of America remain under attack.

King would suggest we defend these rights and that decent people in the Republican Party join, rise up and condemn the attacks.

As any sentient American can see, the civil rights movement today will find very few allies—can we name one—in the Republican Party.
