This article is republished from 3/6/2011. Republicans have a long history of disenfranchising people that they consider more likely to vote for Democrats. After all, they can’t allow something as minute as voting rights stand in the way of establishing a 1,000 year Republican Regime of one-party rule. In a master coup, they slimed ACORN, forcing that fine organization into bankruptcy, using fictitious information that looked so damning that Acorn was gone before the truth that Republicans doctored the video reached the public. During the Bush Regime, they fired US attorneys who refused to file false charges against Democratic candidates on the eve of elections. Google caging to find another favorite Republican ruse. And now they’re back to using false claims of voter fraud to steal the right to vote from millions of US citizens.

Well, to address the question, they certainly will if they can. And they definitely can if we don't fight every step of the way. And they also definitely can if we aren't aware they are doing it. All of which means that this article is timelier than ever.

FDR said the “Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”, and it would seem that therein lies the crux of the Republican problem. They fear the loss of power. With that power goes the loss of influence, the loss of prestige, and greed for themselves and the benefactors. Republicans have a mockery out of democracy preferring instead corporatocracy or plutocracy.

Why fix something that isn't broken? The only voter fraud is that perpetrated by Republicans on the American voter. The only thing that needs suppression is the Republican penchant for voter suppression.

"Nothing in this country is so precious as our right to vote. The only way I know to protect our voting rights is to remove Republicans from power at every level of government, so completely that your great grandchildren ask your children, “Who were the Republicans?”

My sentiments exactly!

Seems like the proper and sensible thing to do is give EVERYONE who gets a Social Security Number gets the right to vote. The Republicans are not interested in actual Democracy! They like their rigged system.

Next week CA will be watching whether elections staff will actually let no party affiliation people get ballots for DEM presidential primary as required by law or only do so if they somehow without elections staff efforts learned enough to ask for one and not have it be a provisional one--the ONLY election or race in CA where it matters how you register (the GOP limits it to registered GOP). So.CA county data related to mail in ballots (how about 60% vote) indicated no one knew (today was last day to request such a ballot) it is a DEM issue here this time

Is the bear Catholic? Does the Pope--ahem. In other words, yes--if the ruse of an election continues as it has gone thus far. Thanks TC. Here's some love and good wishes.

Yes, the content of this article is still valid, perhaps even more so than it was when it was first posted in 2011. Which means that all voters should be on the lookout for vote theft and disenfranchisement and fight it wherever they encounter it. It also shows how much a reasonable justice for SCOTUS is needed right now to undo all the voting "fraud" Republican legislators have concocted over the past few months to keep themselves and their brethren in power.

The Repubs benefit from all this like everyone else, the Snap, Assistance, from our Social Security, and they want to cut it all & take away. I am sure they all like receiving this but will not admit anything.
In Ohio the Governor Kasick wants a POLL TAX TO VOTE! He is also the one that has Privatized the Turnpikes the Prison's for no reason. It had all worked fine for years.
Thank you TomCat
