Tuesday, October 23, 2012

But that’s exactly what Eric Marshall, manager of legal mobilization for Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law works to do.

"Why would that cause any legal voter to not go vote?"

No one has to explain institutional racism to a black man. http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/confessions-of-a-former-republican/

Why is the statement "voter fraud is felony" so terrible? It's a true statement and freedom of speech. I assume it would all be fine if they also put them in country club neighborhoods. So the issue is: "we don't like where you directed your speech."

Why would that cause any legal voter to not go vote? If I'm not fraudulently voting, why do I care if you post that board? You're not talking to me. Find something serious to worry about here fellas.

How about only those who pay taxes can vote?

Some months ago the CBS news website quoted a Tea Party leader saying that he wanted to return to Jeffersonian times when only land owners would be allowed to vote. Did I read that right(when I tried to return to that page the next day, it appeared to be gone)?
