There’s a 1/8,000 Chance…

You’ll be stuck by lightening! Great video by NAACP about voter suppression laws on the absolute absurdity over voter id laws.

People keep saying Republicans have created a solution for which there was no problem.   That’s half true, there is very little voter fraud in this country.  This solution though does fix a problem the GOP has created.  When you attack and demean everyone who doesn’t look/think/love like you do, you have a voter problem.  How do you win in that environment???  YOU MAKE IT HARDER TO VOTE!

Everyone should watch!

Sad. Disgusting. And seeming to be the normal this election cycle.

First they alienate against everyone that doesn’t look/think/love like they do…then come election cycle realize CRAP, how do I win?

I’ll tell you how they plan on doing it, they will try to make it harder to vote!



Voter ID Laws Take an Ass Kicking.

Thank God.

Why fix it if it’s not broken??  If the Justice Department had 86 convictions out of 300  million (yes I said million) voters is there a voting fraud epidemic???  I hardly think so.

Boy those Republicans of limited government do seem to like bloating the government up and making absurd laws for problems that don’t exist, don’t they?

 



Voter Suppression and Voter ID Laws 101

There are approximately 314,000,000 people living in the United States. In 2008 a little over 129,000,000 voted. According to a link I found on factcheck.org (http://www.factcheck.org/2009/01/2008-voter-turnout/) 61.6% of those that could legally vote did.

It’s amazing to me that more people don’t vote. Voting may be one of the greatest rights we have in this country. Second amendment enthusiasts keep your panties on, until I’m able to own a nuke I don’t want to hear a word from you, but that’s another argument for another day.

Campaigns are constantly trying to encourage voters to vote. Right? Well…yes and no. They want you to vote, but only if it is likely you will vote for them. That’s how you win, right? Wrong. I agree, you should energize, convince and campaign for people to vote for you, but you shouldn’t disenfranchise others or create laws that make it harder for others to vote.

Is this really a problem?

Yes, in fact it is. There are 19 states that have been hard at work attempting to change their laws that make it harder for some to vote. They are: Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, West Virginia, Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Texas, Kansas, and Wisconsin.

Here’s a breakdown of each state’s political leadership by party.

Are you noticing a trend?  The majority of prohibitive voter id laws are in red states.  Shocking?  Not hardly.
