    The guy who helped found the Heritage foundation.

    One of the kings of the right.

    He clearly says the republicans dont win when voter rolls are high.

    He says he doesnt want people to vote in any big numbers.

    He has probably modified that position today, as with his help they have created enough brain dead righties to fill many a lunatic asylum. It still amazes how the conservative wingnut echo chamber orchestrates the total nonsense they fill the air with, the same stuff is every where in just a day!


    "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." Joseph Goebbels

    Pretty similar to the "Rules for Radicals" playbook that Obama follows

    Except this is reality and your example is pulled from somewhere near your prostate.

    Care to compare Obama's tactics and the tactics proposed in that book?

    It's simple really.

    Republicans don't want a a lot of people to vote because their message does not appeal to most Americans. The republican message is tailored specifically to appeal to white males and their mates .. period. Thus increasingly, for republicans to win elections where the demographic is not overly white male, they need to somehow control the results .. and they have a veritable magic bag of tricks they use to control outcomes in elections .. and they have the will to do whatever they believe necessary for them to win.

    Democrats, on the other hand, don't have a clue what their party stands for. The Democratic Party has clearly, beyond all doubt, proven itself to be weak and ineffective as an opposition party. As democrats tout Bush's low approval numbers, they forget their numbers in Congress aren't much better. They never had the courage to stand against Bush. Even when republicans are in the minority they tend to weild more power than democrats.

    The Democratic Party does not have the political courage or will to stand against republican attempts at controlling the outcomes of elections.

    Now you're comparing Obama to Goebbels? I love how you're falling apart just like your buddies, but you are putting a bad light on the intelligence of Army Vet's though. You and your buddy Sarg
