    Michigan Messenger Lose your house, lose your vote

    Notice I say GOP tactic because you don't see the Democrats doing this.

    That is because the Dems actually do better when more people vote.

    The ID laws in states are also doing just what the studies suggested they would do, knocking poor people off the voting roles.

    The Republican party was caught and punished for vote fraud like this twice back in the eighties.

    Exactly my point.

    And whom do poor people usually vote for? Democrats.

    Caging list - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    From the Washington Post: "In 1981, the Republican National Committee sent letters to predominantly black neighborhoods in New Jersey, and when 45,000 letters were returned as undeliverable, the committee compiled a challenge list to remove those voters from the rolls. The RNC sent off-duty law enforcement officials to the polls and hung posters in heavily black neighborhoods warning that violating election laws is a crime." Republicans however, denied that black voters were the target. An attorney for the RNC, Bobby Burchfield, stated that "troubling reports" of fictitious names such as Mary Poppins were appearing on Ohio's rolls and that is what prompted the challenges.

    The Washington Post[11]: "In 1986, the RNC tried to have 31,000 voters, most of them black, removed from the rolls in Louisiana when a party mailer was returned. The consent decrees that resulted prohibited the party from engaging in anti-fraud initiatives that target minorities or conduct mail campaigns to 'compile voter challenge lists.'" The Republican National Committee reportedly stopped the practice following the consent decree in the 1986 case

    Probably the same reason that Diebold and other disgusting tactics aren't talked about.

    Because it's the truth, and in this case the GOP doesn't want you, me, or anyone else to know it. They will probably pay or threaten to keep such things off the major news medias.

    Focus on the BS, not the issues.

    The only reason we are getting as much real information as we do now if the internet.

    Those series of tubes have given us a chance to save this country.

    It's amazing what a couple of minutes on the internet will find you compared to watching any of the corporate news media channels for a few hours.

    You'll find more in those few minutes on the internet.
