  •  Republicans need to be open (0+ / 0-)

    For the last few years, the Republicans have been following the ALEC playbook, enacting onerous legislation on the State level designed to deprive people of their rights.  Wisconsin and Ohio and Florida and Michigan are great examples of voter ID laws that Just Had to be in place to 'prevent voter fraud' all the while perpetuating  election fraud by disenfranchising voters.   Republicans in Michigan even tried to sidestep the entire democratic (small d) process, and they got called on it.
    All of the Republican/ALEC antics have been exposed as nothing more than power grabs from behind closed doors.  Republicans have got to abandon that approach and include minorities as equals.  Republicans need to drop their manufactured urgency in enacting onerous legislation so that the electorate has a chance to examine what is intended and decide for themselves whether it's good or not.
