Just like the so-called Jim Crow laws managed to take away voting rights from newly-liberated blacks in America and thus to practically revert the abolition of slavery for another 100 years, much the same mechanism is used again (and has been used in the last few US presidential elections) to make some of those unwelcome Democrat voters go away on paper.
Quote of the season:
“If Democrats are to win the 2008 election, they must not simply beat McCain at the polls – they must beat him by a margin that exceeds the level of GOP vote tampering.”
Read more about it on Greg Palast’s wonderful website. He’s one of those people who’ve been saying it for years now. It’s no miracle that Bush was elected and re-elected. They simply removed Democratic voters from the voter lists, so they wouldn’t count. Revoked registration, no vote, no say. That and delivering faulty voting computers to strategically interesting states…
But so far I don’t see people up in arms about this ridiculous travesty that is the Bush administration and what may very well be the McSame administration.
