For Democrats and Progressives, voting is a minefield. There’s nothing the Republican Reich won’t do to steal your vote through trickery, of failing that, through depriving you of your vote. Republicans have a long history of dirty tricks to win elections. They do this because, if they depended on their policies, they would lose.

Excellent piece, TC.
Shows how the R's want to change the landscape, and grab the goods for the win.
No matter either,..... how low they can and will go.
Love how you and Rachel explained this also.

I love the new GOP logo! It's truth in advertising.

I honestly don't remember any Democratic dirty tricks in my lifetime - at least not in national politics - I do remember Daley in Chicago. But I grant that Watergate was so beyond the pale it could have erased my memory a little. We generally get into trouble by NOT using dirty tricks.

History continues unchanged unless sufficient numbers rise up to force change...and then might repeat itself to change back or to less...sigh...hope earliest turnout reports are a reflection of what total turnout becomes

Perfect Logo for the repugs. Real rats out to destroy. We will all fight back and change it all around on November 6th. We Must. Hopefully we will be hearing about how sad the large rodent in the the day after the elections. We the people deserve some positiveness in our daily lives. We've suffered enough ever since January 20, 2017.
Thanks TomCat

The GOP knows that they cannot win any election with honesty is why they pull every dirty trick they can, think they can get away with it. 

Love Rachel Maddow. Have a listen.

I still advocate that voters vote by law. The GOP would become extinct.

Lies, dirty tricks, go way backing U.S.history, but the current, and recent, GOP has honed the art to something like venal perfection.  Voter fraud is a leftover from the days of Jim Crow, sadly.  Fox News is not "broadcast" in the UK, because the network realized that Brits are not as dumb and gullible as the Yanks.  To my knowledge, there is also no major Evangelist, or similar,  movement in the much more secular UK.  I do not think this is a coincidence!

You had me there, TomCat; only at the end your comment made me realize the article was 10 years old! So nothing has changed, only has gotten worse with a “president of all people” threatening his people with civil and criminal action action in case of voter fraud. Thank goodness the little fraud there was in the past was perpetrated by Republicans. 😁

I’m not all that fond of Oz’s mandatory voting; becoming a registered voter just by being registered somewhere as a citizen, i.e. birth certificate or driver’s licence, should suffice. Considering the terrible trickery around votes, however, mandatory voting does have it’s appeal. Then undue purging and reporting wrong voting dates would become fraudulent when “the mistake” wasn’t rectified as soon as it was noticed. Lee Zeldin would have to throw good money after bad by rectifying his “mistake” by printing and distributing the same amount of correcting fliers and publicly correcting it at every opportunity, not having his spokeswoman make a brief statement that nobody heard.

Making a rat the new symbol of Republicans is unfair - to rats.

Honest Abe (Lincoln) = the last time honesty and Republican would appear together without being an oxymoron!

Deception and dirty tricks = the only way Republicans can win

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

I'd take issue with the phrase "rich history", in fact, to me, it is probably more like elections bring out the absolute worst in people interested in suppressing voting for personal and political gain. Trump's tweet is fascist. As is he. What should be punishable with maximum effect, fines and prison, are blatant attempts to suppress the right to vote by anyone as Rachel so eloquently, but far too nicely, pointed out. This is not how a democracy should operate. Ever.

You can't get any more of a delusional and deceitful "source" for a "progressive" rant than Rachel Madcow! BTW, the POTUS election that got "stolen" was the 1960 election where Chicago and WV irregularities gave JFK a. "win" over Nixon and that was actually confirmed later by the "main stream media" that was no friend of Nixon, It was the Dem controlled FL Supreme Court that kept changing the recount rules in 2000 to give AlGore a "win'. It was also the Dems who pushed "motor voter" that allows non citizens to register to vote automatically when getting a driver's license. Odd how votes have been "found" to give Dems a victory in close recounts like the 2008 Wi senate race where Franken "defeated" Coleman or a similar case in the 2016 WA governor race. Then there are the cases of out right voter fraud in my area where Dems voted multiple times, voted in other people's names, voted in other states as well as OH, or more voters cast ballots than eligible like Dem controlled Cuyahoga County.
