    Why does this and the acts of all the businessmen who HAVE taken this advice matter if no one knows who you cast your vote for? Because this type of voter intimidation isn't simply meant to suppress votes. This sort of thing represses people's willingness to take part in ANY part of the democratic process. Lawn sign? Nope, the boss might see it. Posting why some policy, party, or politician is in a communities economic and social interest on any social networking sight? Nope again, because the inhumane resources department of any large business is "large and intrusive" enough to monitor what you publish. Even a BUMPER STICKER is out of the question in the atmosphere this creates.

    Well let me know when some reps are convicted. That would be actual news, like last year when dems went to jail for voter fraud.

    and the NBPP was hanging around with clubs.

    and the unions showing up with thier thugs

    Barb Jimmy Carter demands identification. The Carter Institute demands it.



    Carter Center Postelection Statement on Cherokee National Elections, June 1, 1999
    “ATLANTA, GA….Before going into details, we would once again like to congratulate you on your dedication to well-run tribal elections and to the professionalism and unflappability of your staff. If you accomplished nothing else in this election, your voters can feel confident they have a truly secret ballot which should go a long way toward building their trust in the elections process of the Cherokee Nation.

    Consistent with what was said in the opening above and …. the Cherokee Nation wishes to continue choosing its leadership through open elections, we suggest the Commission consider the following options:

    Eliminate registration entirely. This can be done in several ways: Voting on the basis of tribal registration (blue card) with no permanent voter registration list maintained. Multiple voting in different precincts would be eliminated by checking tribal registration numbers against the master list; Allowing day-of-election registration (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maine). The voter simply appears with the blue tribal registration card and a picture ID, casts a ballot and is logged into the system…. Key to this system is a method of ensuring the voter does not vote in several precincts …

    … Converting the blue card into a permanent ID card would facilitate either of the above options.”

    voter id? WHO KNEW this thread was about voter id?

    I posted about EMPLOYERS trying to direct their employees which way their bread was buttered and the problems with that. Also about a ploy to send voters to the polls the wrong day.

    Tiny, how far OUT, back, and under do you have to reach to completely miss the point? You must have a kink SOMEwhere.
