Kyrsten Sinema Reveals Herself as a Racist
by Cathy Milne-Ware
If an American is Black, Hispanic, Asian, or poor, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) does not believe they should have the right to vote. President Biden has proposed a “Right to Vote Act,” which would prevent voter suppression by right-wing extremist politicians. Sinema claims to be a Democrat but opposes an act that would protect the 1st Amendment rights of millions of American voters.
It is obvious that Sinema is just another racist from Arizona. She, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) are Trump supporters who refuse to perform the jobs for which they were elected.

America’s Founding Fathers considered freedom of religion and the right to vote the most important guarantees in the 1st Amendment. Republicans and Sinema do not agree with the men who created the United States of America. They believe that only pure whites should be allowed the right to vote.
Okay, it is time to be crude because the average American and nearly one-half of our government refuse to support the Constitution. What the f**k has happened to the government? I was born in 1946 and have been interested in politics since 1956. What I see today is nothing less than treason.
Every politician on the right side of the aisle is violating their oaths of office, “to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
Unfortunately, Sinema supports their fascist idea of the filibuster and is opposed to protecting the right to vote for all Americans.
“Effort to fix these problems on bare majorities on a party-line basis only exacerbate the root causes that gave way to these state laws in the first place,” Sinema said, ignoring how landmark efforts to protect voting rights, such as the 15th Amendment, were passed on party-line votes.
To say she is not the “sharpest tool in the shed” is a huge understatement. The people of Arizona were conned into electing an unqualified, self-serving woman who has no understanding of how America works. The nation exists because a “bare majority” rules. Minority concerns cannot replace the needs and wishes of the majority, but Sinema does not understand.

America’s electorate is the least informed in the world, and Senators Sinema and Joe Manchin (D-Va.) prove that fact. The only responsibility elected officials have as the Democratic Republic is to support the needs and wishes of 330 million Americans. Their personal beliefs are not relevant. If they place their personal ambitions ahead of the people, they should not be eligible for public office.
This country is not governed by a parliamentary government or a dictatorship. The Founding Fathers believed that the people should be involved in every decision made in the nation’s capital.
It is time for dozens of our elected officials to get their heads out of their asses and do the jobs for which they were elected. They must not rule over us, they must serve the American people.
You can control the direction of our nation. Your vote remains the most powerful weapon our nation possesses. You can defeat our corrupt government and even the men who control our military in the Pentagon.
The 2022 and 2024 elections will decide if democracy will continue in America, or if Trump’s fascist party will end the dream. It’s your choice: “this is your country, not theirs.” Party loyalty is ignorant and opposed to a successful and intelligent election. Vote for the best candidate, not a party.
