their vote matters, that their vote is counted, and that in the voting booth,
their vote has a much weight as that of any CEO, any member
of Congress, or any President. Barbara Boxer
"Well, I'm going to be real honest with you. The Republican Party doesn't want black people to vote if they're going to vote nine to one for Democrats."
Ken Emanuelson, a Tea Party activist with deep connections to the Dallas County Republican Party
Poor, blacks, Hispanics, college students, senior citizens,
fuck off, you can't vote!
If you are black, Hispanic, poor, a senior citizen or a college student the GOP wants to make it harder for you to vote. They are passing new identification laws. The GOP wants to prevent, Hispanics, seniors, blacks, college students and the poor from voting. In fact, in their heart of hearts, they probably want to make the vote only for white men of property. The states with GOP controlled legislators have a new strategy and that is voter suppression. The lie is to prevent voter fraud. There has been virtually miniscule voter fraud in America, maybe 3 suspected cases in the last national election (Republicans who were cheating). The GOP wants to stop any voters who didn't vote for them in the past. They want to steal this democracy. The GOP wants to hijack elections because they realize that they, the GOP, have no credibility with the poor, minorities, seniors and college students in America.
The battle for voter rights begins again. Americans across this country are realizing that the GOP is narrow, racist, intolerant and discriminatory. This battle was fought forty years ago and if necessary it will be fought again. Let the battle begin.
Republicans Take America Back (To the 19th Century) By Cutting Education and Paved Roads By: RmuseAug. 22Nd, 2013 Politicus USA
Americans are witnessing firsthand the long-intended consequences of Republican economic policy that favors corporations and the rich to make room to drastically scale back services and programs that serve 98% of the people, but the damage on the national level pales in comparison to Republican-controlled states. Indeed, when Democratic voter apathy and opposition to President Obama’s inability to grant every whim of many on the left prompted them to sit out the 2010 midterms, it gave Republican governors the power they needed to take their states back to conditions typical of 19th century America. For four-and-a-half years teabaggers and hardline conservatives decried the 21st century and claimed their intent to “take our country back,” and their calls have been answered with the systematic demolition of the public education system and for Texas residents, the loss of paved roads. http://www.politicususa.com/2013/08/22/republicans-america-to-19-century-eliminating-education-paved-roads.html
