    Our loyal and patriotic Gerrymander will eat enough of the votes foolishly cast for Democrats to ensure that the Republicans will have a bigger majority in the House.


    But Gerry can’t help our good, honest Republicans in the Senate, where they desperately need 6 seats to block all of Obama’s appointments for the next two years, now that the Democratic demagogues have abolished the filibuster on appointments. Every decent American knows that it’s very important to prevent all presidential appointments to stop government growth (at least until we got a good Republican president who knows the only purpose of government is to conduct neo-Imperial wars to expand the US neo-Empire and save the poor savages living in darkness from themselves).

    Ironically, the Coke/Pepsi fight comes down to the same thing politics does: money.

    Because the people who get the vote get a sweet job, great benefits, and a guaranteed sweet job after Congress, all for remarkably little work.

    If either pary cared one nit about my vote, they would nominate someone other than a complete idiot.

    I just returned from voting. Guess what. The nice lady there required that I produce a photo ID. I did. I had several in my possession but the DL was the one on top. In line with me? A string of other minorities of myriad ethnicity. The one thing we had in common? We are all citizens of the US and were able and willing to offer proof of that fact.

    Get you butt out of the basement and vote.

    The concept that the poor and minorities cannot manage to get photos id’s is a perfect example of elitist, racist thought. Is Rall trying to say that the poor and minorities are too dull-witted to manage it? Only the white rich are capable?

    The democrats owned Gerrymandering up until the last few elections. Both sides gerrymander. How do you think minority districts are created? The ebb and flow of politics will balance it all out over time.

    Study the Age of Imperialism before you make such ignorant comments. We don’t conquer nations and enslave entire native populations. What’s wrong with you?

    Yes, that is what he is saying. I am asked to show ID a half dozen times a week. What’s the big deal?

    I voted Tuesday and didn’t have to show ID.

    “Get you butt out of the basement and vote.”

    Would that I could. Here in Virginia, we vote on election day, the second Tuesday in November. Early voting? Who needs it? A day off from work? Not a chance. But be a patriot, and find a way to vote.

    Believe me, I do. And every election day, I ask every patient if he/she has voted. I do not ask who they voted for; I just want to ensure that they voted. And many patients tell me that they won’t have the time.

    At least our suppression is equal-opportunity, at least for those of us who work for a living.

    In other words, “it’s easy for me — why isn’t it easy for you?”
    C’mon, Bruce – check out the facts.

    32 individuals contributed more money in the last presidential election than all other donors combined. That makes it seem like it is impossible for the middle class to have any say in what happens in this country. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those 32 people only have 32 votes. The Middle Class has millions…………………………………………………………………………….
    ………………The only thing that is going to save the Middle Class is the Middle Class. We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.We all need to know WHO is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty ………………………………………………………………………….
    ………………….. If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporations or from 1%ers, that’s who their votes are going to be working for. They are not going to go against them and do anything to help the middle class.

    It would be political suicide.

    @John Locke

    No, but to get a free state ID in Illinois, and I suspect in most states, you need to produce a birth certificate. When I applied for one, it cost $15. That isn’t much to Donald Trump, but to someone living in poverty, it is. And, the person to whom $15 is important has just as much right to vote and probably better sense than Trump.
