People of Crimea Vote to Join Russia

With all the critical events happening, or not happening in America today, some will probably question why I’m focusing on events in Ukraine.

Sunday (March 16, 2014), the people of Crimea voted in a referendum to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. One thing for sure, this is the first time nearly all Democrats and Republicans have agreed on anything since Barack Obama became President. President Obama and nearly every member of the House and Senate seem to agree the vote was illegitimate because of Russian troop presence and coercion.

Member after member of the House and Senate, along with the President spoke out with admonition towards Russia for violating the Ukrainian Constitution and International Law.

Here’s the reason why I’m writing on this matter. I’m trying to figure out why our leaders are expressing so much outrage in regards of the events in Ukraine, and don’t show any outrage in regards of the voter restriction laws being passed in States here in America.

Voting is the only right every citizen, no mater what their background is, has the right to express true freedom. But yet, every State controlled by Republicans are passing laws to restrict voter’s rights; exclaiming it’s all to prevent voter fraud.

In a country with over 300,000,000 people, less than ten people have been cited for trying, and I accentuate the word trying to vote illegally. We all know why all of a sudden Republicans are passing laws to suppress certain people from voting; it all starts with a Black man living in the White House.
