I find it shameful, particularly on Memorial Day, that there are persistent attacks on the reasons why so many made the supreme sacrifice. In the United States freedom is secured by a representative government through which the governed provide their consent by voting. After defending its citizens, the prime objective of our government should be to make it easy as possible for all citizens to provide their consent. In my opinion any act that has the intended purpose of preventing people from voting is an affront to all those who gave their lives in service their country.
