Did you know that in Russia something is seriously wrong? All this in the name of rooting out voter fraud, which is ironically virtually nonexistant. People are intimidated at the voting booth. Dark money from God-knows-where gets into the election propaganda. Regions are gerrymandered until one party is guaranteed the win.

Their local government moved voting booths to the least convenient locations, so that there are lines stretching around the block. Hundreds of thousands of voters have been dropped from the voting log, because their first and last name (not the middle initial) match someone’s name in another state. Criminal, right?

They make people have their papers in order if they want to vote. It doesn’t matter if the person is 97 years old and voted all of his adult life, he still needs those papers. Pretty bad, isn’t it? And all this is true — with one exception.

This didn’t happen in Russia. It is happening here. Right now. Don’t let them win. Vote. Help your neighbors vote. Voting is a privilege. It is also a right. Don’t wait. Do it today! Freedom is at stake!
