Republican Governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, last month, arrested 20 ex-felons for voting. Such MAGA republican antics to prevent citizens, particularly African Americans, from voting, while pandering to other citizens’ rage, are damaging to our democracy. They constitute schoolyard bullying that has caused enough harm already.
I’m at a loss for words when I see any citizen backing MAGA republican beliefs. Rational people would want to leave behind a legacy that gives hope to others when they depart their positions of authority. DeSantis and other MAGA republican cohorts, however, are instead sowing the seeds of division, while stomping on democratic rights.
America will do well without people of DeSantis’ political persuasion. This anti-democratic behavior by the Governor and other republicans is the product of the worst parts of Donald Trump’s MAGA movement. America can no longer afford such poor leadership. Citizens must vote massively in future elections to choose people willing to truly serve.
