Letter to the Editor: Reader responds to op-ed about voting

To the Editor:

RE: The Coastland Times of 4-28-21

After reading what Bob Phillips (the Executive director of Common Cause NC) had to say about everyone’s freedom to vote, I hope he’ll also comment on the HR-1 Bill that the Socialists sent to the Senate. I believe it is entitled “For The People’s Act of 2021.”

This Bill is 791 pages long and discharges, bit by bit, our current Federal and State laws, especially our election laws, to reveal their Bill’s aim for a one-party political system headed by one person as our new dictator. Democracy with its freedoms will be a thing of the past.

I hope Bob will be able to wake up our voting majority ASAP.
