22. You're more than welcome!

And we also had a very checkered past when it comes to voting rights, literacy tests, poll taxes, the list goes on - that prevented people from voting. Even now (after the Supreme Court struck down the heart of the 1965 Voting Rights Act), we're seeing all kinds of abuses - changes in polling places and partisan changes to voting districts. You'd think we'd have these issues straightened out by now, but the individual states now have more authority to do whatever they want.

And it's not the first time that we've had these problems. Back in 2000 the Supreme Court decided the election rather than the people - and we paid a heavy price for that. As for the Electoral College, that isn't going away anytime soon, criticized as it's been. Though we are fortunate to have the Constitution that we do since that's one way we have of upholding the law - unfortunately we doubt that Trump has ever even read it.

But right now there's an investigation going on and we're all placing our hopes on that. In the meantime, things get worse every day and it's difficult to be patient.
