    Let me guess which party those 20% belong to.

    “bad asses” isn’t the phrase which describes them suitably.

    “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” Please note that for the government to fear the people the people do not have to be armed.

    No democracy in the US anymore – well I guess it depends on your the definition of democracy.

    I’m curious who the other 80% were. Now where I live in Boston, MA, there are always a sizeable number of “ineligible voters” on the roll, because when people move — and they often do — they rarely bother to tell the voter registration people to take them off. So it takes a year or two for them to get purged. No fraud is involved, or if it is, it’s very rare, but there don’t catch anyone.
    Is that what makes up the other 80%?

    Bad-ass. Can be good (Clint Eastwood, Neil deGrasse Tyson).
    Or not. (Republicans).

    No, the other 80% were ineligible. They may have died, or moved. As chassimmons pointed out, no fraud intended. People who move don’t bother to inform the election board, and people who are dead can’t inform the election board.

    The lack of faith we have in the Republicans is one of their weapons.

    Jim Crow is historically a Democrat. They invented him to put dowb the blacks, who at that time voted Republican.

    @Gail Adams

    But who is using Jim Crow tactics now?
    Which party did the segregationists Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms switch to?
    What party did Harry Truman, the president who desegregated the Armed Forces, belong to?
    What party controlled both the Congress and White House when the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were passed and signed?

    …and the party affiliation of those people 130 years ago is relevant HOW? Remember, in the 1970s, how all those Dixiecrats became… umm… Republicans?

    And Florida fired an employee who tried to NOTIFY the purgees that they had been dropped from the voting rolls! They were only supposed to be told when they went to vote!

    …and many states do not deny the vote to convicted felons!

    Remove the “bad” and you’ve pretty much got an accurate assessment.

    Who’ll notice? The rest of the world. Those countries which the US wants to adopt democracy or which the US criticizes for not being properly democratic, oh, they’ll notice. Also people in other democracies who still can’t quite get their heads round Bush/Gore and what a dire effect that on subsequent events in the rest of the world. Unfortunately what you guys do still matters globally.

    I’ve often wondered what it would take to start a new revolution in this country of apathetics. A Romney win with the help of Republican voter suppression laws would do it.
