    They’ll add up the votes again and again until they get what they want, like they always do.

    And, it’s all so unnecesary!


    The repubs have already proved they can “fix” the voting machines – look at Ohio since 2004. Then they killed off the insider who was going to squeal. So much more efficient! And without al this messy hoopla and bad press.

    leftwing, I was about the same age when I visited the Taj Mahal in ‘61, as you were when you arrived in Brooklyn. I remember our Sikhs guide’s name was Jockman (sp) and he drove us around in an American made station wagon, the first one I ever rode in. I was also impressed by the roadside mongoose/snake/cobra shows along with the heat, the overcrowding and the skinny cows.

    In keeping with this weeks thread, do you see similarities with the Hindu caste system and Jim Crow laws?

    If they don’t let you vote, they shouldn’t be able to make you pay taxes.

    The irony is India has one the largest affirmative action programs in the world to address the problem of the caste system. Not only do members castes that have been historically oppressed benefit, but so do Muslims, and members of smaller tribes. These groups are as Scheduled Groups and places are set aside for them in universities and goverment jobs for them.
    Naturally, members of the upper castes feel this is unfair. They forget the generations, if not centuries of discrimination and oppression these people experienced.
    As for the voter ID requirements, here is my reccomendation: states that pass these laws must provide FREE identifications to people who do not currently have a state ID. They must also provide FREE transportation to elderly and disabled who cannot get to the ID issuing office.

    Republicans are the dictators we have feared since before the Revolution. They can’t be trusted to be loyal to their fellow Americans, especially if they can make more money by screwing us. Come on! These people should never have power because they are un-American, traitors, ….to all that is good about this country… and according to them, anyone else is the literal enemy. All they care about is money…..YOURS!

    The State of Pennsylvania seems to be trying to defend the constitutionality of this registration law without any claim that the problem they are purporting to solve actually exists. It puts them on the edge of not meeting “rational basis”, the weakest standard for judicial review: for a law to restrict people’s rights at all requires that there be at least a rational basis for the law’s existence.
    My non-expert view is that this law matches the standard of “intermediate review”: since it will prevent at least some people from voting, the state must establish an “exceedingly persuasive justification” for its necessity, although not (as in “strict scrutiny”) have to show that it’s being done in the best possible way.
    Without showing that the purported problem exists, there is no way they can be “exceedingly persuasive”.

    To watch we Democrats charging the GOP with “voter fraud” is more than I can bear. Chicago, anyone? Anyone else remember “Landslde Lyndon” and how many dead people had to vote for him to win the Texas Senate race? Is Gary having early Alzheimer’s? Sheesh!

    There’s a voter fraud problem alright, it’s just that it’s not people trying to vote with false identities, it’s going on in GOP-led state legislatures. Good of Mike Turzai to let a little honesty slip in and admit it’s really about disenfranchising those who they think more likely to vote for someone else.

    If your only goal once getting into office is to get someone out of office and repeal any bill they had anything to do with, including just signing it into law, then you are in the way. Please resign now.
