Read the OP. There is a lot more details in the article, but I haven't read it, but I want to read it later. But the gist of it is that the republicans are trying to suppress the votes of millions of minorities in the upcoming election in an attempt to win a senate majority. They have a crosscheck list that they claim is to ensure there is less voter fraud (but trust me, that is complete bullshit and they know what they are doing). But to identify voter fraud, you are banned from voting if simply a first name and last name are shared. No 'Jr.' or 'Sr.' or 'III' or 'IV' in a name needed. Middle names disregarded. Social security numbers aren't even cross checked. Just first and last names. Oh, and the majority of the last names are common surnames for blacks, Hispanics, and Asian Americas, who, by the way, mostly vote democrat.

Like one poster says in a summary:


Summary for those rushing to reply: Republicans produced a list of millions of possible fraud voters, but people are flagged solely on the basis of if they share a first and last name with someone in another state. So John Paul Williams of Virginia and John R. Williams of Georgia are being flagged as being potentially the same person solely on the basis of their names; they explicitly are not checking social security numbers . This process is specifically targeting names common among minorities.

Oh no. This is so stupid it's unlikely going to happen.

I'm not sure if all Republicans are bad news, but I haven't been hearing anything good from them lately either.

And I often wonder why the Republican party is still relevant. This shows how desperate they are to win elections. Democrats, please come out in waves and vote these dumb asses out of office.

You know what grinds my gears. those evil republicans have this obsession with freedom, the constitution, rule of laws and personal responsibility for ones own actions. I hate that.

I like to be told what to do all the time, told how and why I can start my own company, and how Im forced to now sit at home all day watching anime instead of actually earning money doing the job(s) I trained to do years ago during periods when stuff was actually built here in the states and the economy actually grew (not just faked numbers due to statistical manipulation and massive paper money printing).

yep, they really suck.

lol

Both of them are full of corrupt pieces of garbage. It's not going to change until something drastic happens because with how they have made things it is next to impossible to actually clear out all the bad ones. Voting only allows you to pick which liars face you can stand looking at the most.

A personal observation: All governments are tyrannies--some just have better window dressing.

(Just remember that Washington begged his fellow patriots to not fall victim to a two-party political system, fearing that politics would become more important than governing justly. Poor guy was right.)

^^Couldn't have said it better...

Pay attention to the the Hong Kong protests, because they are protesting against China creating an American style voting system (introduction of political parties), which the youth of Hong Kong are aware of how undemocratic this system really is.

IMO, with the interconnection people have with technology, governments are now like organized religions, relics from the past that many people shouldn't take serious at this day and age.

If you wish to follow/abide by said institution (organized religion/government) then go ahead, but everyone shouldn't be forced into doing so.

Don't vote, its a waste of time because of how corrupt it is (gerrymandering, electoral votes, corporate person hood, political parties, ect) and the decision between the fascists (democrats) and the oligarchs (republicans) is no choice at all

I agree, this crap has no reason to be on CR. People just like to have things to be pissed off about, makes them feel tough to talk shit on internet...

I assume you're not blindly supporting this policy. The article was written in a confusing manner and there are no numbers given for how this has/would have/will affect Senatorial elections. I want numbers.

Those 400 people in Florida would probably disagree with you.
