An Arduous Task - Salvaging Damaged American Democracy, by Peter Boyce
|Posted on June 22, 2021 at 10:55 AM|
As long as those who explicitly tried to maim American democracy remain free - living, under an assumed impunity to callous inciting speech and violence, and deliberate acts against the security of the Republic, then democracy in the United States (US) will not return to its pre-Donald Trump highs of great integrity, admiration and wide global influence.
Moreover, the added reality that many Republicans are championing voter restriction laws nationally and across the many States, underscores the arduous task toward salvaging America's injured democracy, which grossly suffered with the violent and deadly insurrection at the US Capitol, January 6, 2021.
Furthermore, Republican pushback in the US Senate against an inquiry commission into the events of January 6, 2021, also confirms the extent to which democracy has been damaged and surppressed in America.
The difficult task of halting the waning of American democracy should include a broadening of voter rights in full rebuke to Republican efforts toward voter suppression. And even more crucial to the salvaging and resurrecting of the integrity of democracy would be the held-accountability of those responsible for the events leading up to, including, and after the deadly violent insurrection at the seat of the US Legislature - the Capitol, January 6, 2021.
