Response to better (Reply #34)

41. I'm sorry , I must have missed your post. I would have answered sooner.

There is obviously profound truth to the idea that voter suppression is arguably the single most prevalent culprit in the way the 2016 election turned out, and I share the concern about any minimization of this fact.

You are absolutely right, about everything. It is important the flush out all Russian (and any American who worked with them) activities towards our election process. This can not be understated. However, I feel that this has been the only story, really. I haven't heard much about the very real impact of voting suppression, hence my frustration (and the rather salty tone of the OP).

Millions....MILLIONS!!!! Millions of my fellow Americans were booted from voting lists across the country. How many times, I ask, has this issue been lifted as a reason for the downturn in voter turnout? What IS usually lifted as the reason(s) instead? A bunch of crap that's really more about whomever is giving the opinion (because that's what it is, usually). Voter suppression just isn't as sexy as Russian clownery, 1037 panels of female tRump supporters, and Comey's "conscience". But it is damned effective.

Lol! Not at you, better. At the media, in particular.
