GOP Senator Says Voter Suppression Is A ‘Great Idea’


Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) said it should be harder for “liberal folks” to vote.



I would like to suppress the vote of "liberal folks" that want to make legislation coercing my behavior.  I owe nothing to the tyranny of the majority and hope that as politicians adopt more progressive or nationalistic ideas that is spurs a libertarian bulwark that educates the public to the costs.  Fortunately the SC may now be our defense against non-Constitiutional over reach.




So you are complaining about tryanny as you are supporting tryanny.




A Constitutional Republic that has firm law protecting the individual from the whims of the majority, powerful, or anyone else for that matter is not tyranny.  You can not vote yourself a say over my behavior as long as I am not infringing upon the rights of others.




Voter suppression is a form infringement upon the rights of others. Yet you wrote:


I would like to suppress the vote of "liberal folks" .




It was an off the cuff joke, sort of they wouldn't vote for me.  The bigger issue is we are a constitutional republic and republics are democratic.  Not all democracies are republics, it's important not to conflate the two.  The constitutional protections are more important than the will of the majority in preventing oppression.




Speaking of preventing oppression, it is far past time to put an end to voter suppression




With what?  A universal standard like a national voter ID?




Try again. It is all about voter suppression, and then coming up with


pretexts to justify those tactics.  Most eligible voters choose not to vote;


so the idea that there is systematic problem of voter fraud, other than


voter suppression, is absurd.







who needs to show ID buying groceries?  Someone with a SNAP card?  So basically what you are saying is there should be no verification of identity with voters and just be happy that they are willing to participate?  The ones that vote for relatives or in more than one state are rare and deserve to because they are extra motivated?




The problem are the games the anti-American right with voter ID's.  Hunter licenses


are OK but government issued schoole ID's are not.  Requiring house addresses when


it is not in use on Indian lands.  Closing polling places in Democratic strongholds.


Just to name a few of these games.

GOP strategist slams Republicans for playing along with Trump’s voter fraud lies: ‘Nobody’s changing their clothes like Batman’


Sophia Nelson, a former Republican counsel for the House Oversight Committee and GOP congressional candidate, powerful called out Trump’s lie.


“You know what’s shady?” she asked. “The president of the United States making up something that freaking ridiculous — excuse my mouth on national TV — that’s why shady,” she replied.


“And I am disappointed in Republicans when they don’t say, ‘Mr. President, that is wrong,'” Nelson scolded. “Nobody’s getting in their car and changing their outfit like Batman, that’s just ridiculous.”

North Carolina Republicans Alleged to Have Committed Major Election Fraud


Is a Do-Over Election Incoming? North Carolina Republicans Alleged to Have Committed Major Election Fraud 

Bi-partisan officials in North Carolina refuse to certify election results for a hotly contested U.S. congressional district after discovering what was alleged to be a coordinated effort by Republican Party staff to disenfranchise Democratic Party voters by intentionally destroying and altering their absentee ballots. 

Neera Tanden is the president of the Center for American Progress, a left-leaning think tank. Tanden tweeted about the national media’s apparent lack of interest in the story on Saturday morning: 

It seems a Republican campaign went to the houses of older Democrats, claimed to be officials, took their absentee ballots and got rid of them. The Republican “won” by 900 votes. It’s 2018. Every major newspaper should be on that story. 

The Washington Post described the allegations this way: 

Among the allegations is that an individual who worked for the Harris campaign coordinated an effort to collect and fill in, or discard, the ballots of Democratic voters who might have otherwise voted for McCready. Several of the affidavits come from elderly African American voters. It is illegal to take someone else’s ballot, whether to turn it in or discard it. 

The allegations are shocking and, if true, would constitute some of the most egregious election fraud in recent memory.





Registered Republican Woman Got 8 Years In Prison For Illegal Voting. 


Rosa Maria Ortega’s case illustrates the enormous discretion that prosecutors have in how harshly they pursue voter fraud.

This is a repeat performance by the North Carolina Republican leadership.  Emails were released following the 2016 election that revealed the state GOP leadership of North Carolina not only carried out voter suppression but boasted about it and its success.

Woman Says She Was Paid To Take Absentee Ballots in North Carolina


A woman said Monday that a Bladen County, N.C., Republican election official paid her to illegally collect absentee ballots from the November 6 midterm elections.


Absentee ballot witness Ginger Eason told WSOCTV, a local news station in Charlotte, that the official, McCrae Dowless, paid her between $75 and $100 to take completed absentee ballots from the voters. She said she took the ballots and then never mailed them, depriving the individuals of their legal right to vote in the election.

I was on the North Fork of LI for a few days. I read about a case of election fraud brought against two North Fork Board of Election employees who are also members of the Southold Town Republican Committee. The case involves over 50 signature forgeries on nominating petitons which are felonies.


Trumpet claims widespread Democratic voter improprieties but the only proven fraud I have read about are Republicans in GA, NC and now these asshats in NY.


What do you say about that, Mr. President? Fake news? Obama friendly judges? What's that? It sounds like you're chokin' on a little sumpthin'.
