The Fight for Democracy

Op-Ed

Did you know that state representatives can actually stand up to the Governor and fight for their constituents who put them into office? Representative Hinson Mosley did. He, a young Democrat, stood up to Zell Miller. Hinson earned Zell’s respect, and they ended up becoming dear friends. (You can read it in “God Knew” available at http://www.joywatersfowler.com/store/p5/GodKnew.html. But this is not a book ad.)

Most Americans don’t even know who our state representatives are. I’ve been texting with mine. I believe my representative serves our district with pure motives and hears our voices.

Find the names of your state legislators on your voter page at mvp.sos.ga.gov. Call them. Write them. Tweet them. Text them. Tell them that Georgia voters are NOT okay with allowing temporary Georgia residents to move into our state to swing the election for the interests of a select group. Regardless of political affiliation, no state should be governed by outside interests. If you’re red, you’re red, and if you’re blue, you’re blue. What if Georgia Republicans all showed up in a state with weak voting laws on Election Day and threw the vote? The nation would arise in an uproar. If you don’t take action, that’s what will happen in Georgia on January 5.

Read the DNC settlement agreement with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in the attached photos from February 2020 which opens up the door for just this kind of special interest control.

Loeffler and Perdue say Raffensperger should resign. Is this lip service to throw off the scent of something bigger? Will Brian Kemp step up and do what’s right for Georgia? Is that not what we elected him to do? Or did we even rightfully elect him at all? I’m beginning to wonder.

Regardless, this issue is more than red vs. blue. This is right vs. wrong. This about integrity and transparency. Despite the popular narrative, THIS is actually voter suppression. Will those people who swoop in be around later to help us pay the bills, or will they have gone back home to their everyday lifestyles?

We the people are the only ones who can stand up to this — if we are indeed a democracy. If not, then maybe they’re right, and maybe we don’t need a voice. It’s up to you.
