Dan DiPerna: Vote for democracy!

Kudos to Gustavo Fernandez for his thoughtful and incredibly detailed Oct. 21 Point of View “ Democracy in danger.” In spite of his depressing thoughts regarding democracy, all it would take to restore democracy is for more people to get out and vote.

If the 500,000 or so North Carolinians deprived of Medicaid coverage and the at least 70,000 who had their unemployment benefits decapitated come out and vote in next month’s elections, I am confident that the gerrymandering of the Neanderthal Republican legislature would be overridden.
