I suppose you all heard that the Republicans have taken over both the Senate and the House. As disappointing as it may sound to a lot of Democratic supporters, I’m not shocked in the slightest.
There have been a hell of a lot of votes from minorities, especially blacks and Latinos. It’s something to be proud of seeing as how there have been huge struggles to get that right. However, if you’ve been keeping up with the news, there have been underhanded ways to suppress the black vote in the guise of voter ID laws. But that only made more black folks determined to get up, get out and vote.
Still, the apathetic side that a lot of folks hold is that no matter who’s in office, the rich and powerful always wins. Whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, money is always the victor. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give up on voting. But, in my opinion, it just means we need to come up with strategies like a new party to turn to or create.
So, what are your thoughts on last night’s election results? Sound off below.
