When Republicans are against Democracy in America, how can they support Democracy in Iran?

Since Republicans took control of 10 new governorships and 11 state legislatures in 2010, 19 states have passed bills changing their voting laws—changes that could disenfranchise as many as 5 Million voters in this year’s presidential election. This is much more than the margin of victory in 2 out of the last three presidential elections.

As one Republican put it: Voter fraud is an invented enemy, employed to pass politically advantageous laws in anticipation of the presidential election. It is simply designed to keep democratic voters from voting. That’s it.

Though the bills differ state to state, they are disseminated by the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, a business-friendly consortium of legislators and corporations funded by corporations like Exxon Mobil and private backers like the Koch brothers.

Earlier this month, a three-judge panel agreed, finding the law discriminatory against minorities and ordering five Florida counties to re-extend their early voting periods. (Under the Voting Rights Act, election rules in counties with a history of racial discrimination are subject to federal approval.) But early voting in Florida’s other 62 counties remains subject to the restrictions of the new law.

And remember in during George Bush’s reign, they closed polls early, disqualified African-Americans, and have been implementing electronic voting machines without any paper ballot backups! The Republicans are fraudsters. With all their pretense of pro-life, pro-religion policies, they are the least honest politicians around.

And don’t the Republicans remind us, (as Iranians) of the Mullahs?  Religious but dishonest. Pro-Freedom rhetoric yet least democratic. We already know that the Republicans have maintained close links with the Mullahs in Iran for over 30 years. Interestingly sanctions against Iran during George Bush’s reign were somewhat lax, and Iran cooperated with the U.S. during the invasions of both Iraq and Afghanistan.

In essence, any anti-Iran rhetoric by the Republicans is disingenuous. Any pro-democracy rhetoric by the Republicans is disingenuous. You simply cannot trust them. Look at their actions – not even their words – they simply do not connect with the agenda and policies the Iranian-American community has. If you are against the theocracy in Iran, if you are pro-freedom and democracy in Iran – you simply cannot vote for the Republicans.
