MDR: Protect and demand the voting rights of Michigan citizens


A new site went up this week called Michigan Demands Representation for us Michigan disenfranchised voters. They have a couple of petitions to sign, one for Michigan residents or one for national support citizens, to "tell the DNC that no one has the right to take away your vote". Their front page mission statement says in part:

WE MUST STAND FOR OUR RIGHTS TO HAVE ALL OUR VOTES COUNT AND FOR OUR VOICES TO BE HEARD.

Michigan Demands Representation (MDR) is a grassroots organization formed to protect the voting rights of Michigan citizens. We are not affiliated with any political organization. We received no funding from any corporate, political, or special interest group. We are a group of concerned voters who are outraged that our civil liberties are being violated. We, as Michiganders, must send a message to our elected officials that we will no longer sit idle and allow our voting rights to be abused and ignored. Any voter, regardless of party affiliation, should be concerned. This is a civil liberties issue, not a campaign or candidate issue.

It is a sister site to Florida Demands Representation [FDR]. Loving h/t to No Quarter for bringing this much needed new Michigan site to our attention. Please go over to MDR and sign the petition.

NOTE: My nephew occasionally goes into New York for his job and last night, while walking past the GE building, he came across this note, which had apparently been dropped by Williams as he left the building following his nightly newscast. Hat tip to my nephew for typing up the note and sending the contents along to me via email.

Gee, it’s even on the actual GE memo/letterhead, too!!!

I couldn't agree more! It's one thing to argue over which candidate is appropriate for the job, but it's another to call into question our right to vote. People, voting is the most important thing you can do right now -- don't lie down and take it when they tell you that you can't. It's your right, and your duty, as an American! Check this out if you don't believe me:
