Given the rapidly declining popularity of Republican policies and positions, it only makes sense that they would throw their oligarchy and funds behind a nationwide effort to suppress the vote.

And they have.

These voter suppression efforts by Republicans are specifically targeted at people who are unlikely to vote Republican. Go figure.

It just goes to show that with all their talk about rights, liberty, and the Constitution, all Republicans really care about is their own profit and having exclusive control of the levers of power.

Fortunately, a lot of us have taken notice, and there is a growing and strong pushback.

What Republicans are doing in Arizona may not seem like voter suppression per se, but it’s really just another form of the same thing:

    Join the 99% and occupy this country!! It is time to stop the GOP. Class warfare isn’t new; it’s as old as politics. It’s the upper 1% who have been winning this battle, taking more and more, while leaving the 99% with less and less. How many billions does a person need before they have enough? The GOP talks up tax cuts for the rich as “job creating.” As a former small business owner, that is nonsense! If I paid less taxes, I took home more pay. I didn’t hire more workers.

  19. choongiri writes “Canada’s election fraud scandal continues to unfold. Elections Canada just matched the IP address used to set up thousands of voter suppression robocalls to one used by a Conservative operative, and a comparison of call records found a perfect match between the illegal calls, and records of in the Conservative CIMS voter tracking database, as well as evidence access logs may have been tampered with. Meanwhile, legal challenges to election results are underway in seven ridings, and an online petition calling for an independent public inquiry into the crisis has amassed over 44,000 signatures. The Conservative still maintains their innocence, calling it a baseless smear campaign.”
