    The Robert’s Supreme Court, sadly has its finger prints all over the return of voter suppression.

    Have you seen Colin Powell’s beat down of the GOP’s voter suppression efforts. It’s priceless, and is at Huffingtonpost.com

    The difference being, 50 years ago the stickers were needed and served a useful purpose.

    I think Powell was upset at being played for a fool by the Bush admin. and now he is trying to even the score a little.

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell warned Republicans on Sunday that the strict voter identification laws they’re pursuing around the country will damage the party’s standing with growing blocs of voters.

    “[H]ere’s what I say to my Republican friends: The country is becoming more diverse,” Powell told Bob Schieffer on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “You say you want to reach out, you say you want to have a new message. You say you want to see if you can bring some of these voters to the Republican side. This is not the way to do it.”

    “The way to do it is to make it easier for them to vote and then give them something to vote for that they can believe in,” Powell added.

    What does the ACA have to do with voting rights?

    In the 1930’s at the start of his rise to power, Hitler actually did do a great deal of good for the German people. Why else do you think that they later willingly followed him into the Hell that he eventually led them into?


    So, if he also started out as a socialist, what you are saying is that a certain amount of socialism is not necessarily such a bad thing in the beginning after all. Perhaps both total socialism and total capitalism can eventually lead to a from of fascism, which then can lead to an evil dictatorship. The very idea of human beings banning together to form a strong government to do some of the things that they could not do for themselves is certainly not an evil in itself. But, like anything else that humanity does in extreme can lead to problems. So, fascism itself is neither from the left nor the right, but from an extreme application of either. To me at least it would be just as bad to follow the extreme right wing tea party types as to follow out and out socialists. What is needed is a government that has a moderate and healthy blend of both political philosophies!!

    And who could blame him for trying to even the score. (Hi, Radish)

    Getting past all the hysterical name calling and redefinition of political terminology, can we agree that allowing corporations and the ultra-rich to control governmental policy is wrong headed and dangerous? I say that any politician of any party that willfully turns power over to corporate profit pigs needs to be unelected. We’ve got to get to some resemblance of a government of, by and for the PEOPLE! No?
