Many people in America are starting to accept Bernie Sanders as a brilliant candidate. He has demonstrated this time and time again, including recently during a segment of the “Democratic Candidates Forum” on MSNBC. Rachel Maddow, the host of the program tried to bring up the differences between Republicans and Democrats when it comes to the issue of voting rights…
When she did this, Bernie Sanders felt that he needed to correct her, which is something that doesn’t happen to Maddow often. Over the course of the next minute, Sanders took the time to explain quite clearly what the differences between the parties were as far as voting rights are concerned. His pointed response input drew applause from the crowd and was seen as both riveting and patriotic.
Maddow’s claim was that Republicans are putting up new restrictions on voting and that Democrats are trying to ease them. This is when Sanders interrupted her, asserting that it’s not about “easing” restrictions, what Democrats are pushing for is to make sure that everyone in the country has the right to vote when they’re 18 years of age. It is that simple.
Sanders has never thought of trying to put together a scheme that would deny people the right to vote because they might vote against him, calling people who do that “political cowards” who are afraid of a fair election. According to Sanders, the actions of Republicans are “un-American” and we need some form of legislation or even a constitutional amendment that would ensure every adult in the country can register to vote and cast their ballot on election day.
