Land Of The Free For Blocking The Vote? Who Is In Control?

What an amazing country we live in. We have freedom of expression, freedom of religion, etc. We have inalienable rights such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Some rights are granted by law. Among them is the right to vote and elect our own president.

Yet there are those that work to eliminate or deny access to certain rights for specific groups. Sometimes people are afraid of the power of underrepresented groups which tend to vote Democrat. They can be blatant and eliminate rights by amending the constitution, or find systematic ways to deny access such as keeping people from voting. All this makes me wonder who is really in control, considering McCain didn't seem to have much of a choice in his VP pick.

Land of the free indeed!

Check out:

"They didn't let John McCain pick the person he wanted to pick as VP," (Bush strategist) Dowd declared during the Time Warner Summit panel. "When Sarah Palin got picked instead of Joe Lieberman, which I fundamentally believed would have given John McCain the best opportunity in this race... as soon as he picked Palin, that whole ready versus not ready argument was not credible."
