The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Neither party should get a pass on improper behavior come election times.

I understand if you don't respond.

Interesting.

Did he identify himself, or is that racist?

At 53, the North Dakota special education teacher has been an active voter for about 30 years and, until recently, had never experienced a problem casting her ballot. In 2018, she decided to cast a mail-in ballot for the first time, thinking it would be more convenient than her usual in-person vote. Two years later, Romo learned that her 2018 vote never counted. An election official with no formal criteria to follow decided that Romo’s signature on her absentee ballot envelope didn’t line up with the signature on her absentee ballot application form — and her vote was rejected.

So you figure that if the left gets beat they will cry "voter suppression".

But your boy Trump is already crying about "voter fraud". So he is already making excuses.

Voter suppression is real. One of Trump's own campaign advisors admitted it was a normal GOP tactic.

Voter fraud is a figment of the right's imagination. It has never, ever been shown to amount to anything.

True. Unfortunately, the DemocRATS ALWAYS get away with it. The RepubliCANTS never engage in it. They are too timid, for one thing.

I don't know... did they?

For some reason, you think I am supposed to support illegality just because someone I may like does it. That's not how I work.

Laws are what keeps people in check from doing anything they want. God put that in play for our own benefit so that we would not destroy each other.

If Republicans can’t cheat they won’t win. (They used to call themselves the moral party)

Justin Clark, one of Trump’s reelection advisers, was caught on tape telling Wisconsin Republicans that the party has “traditionally” relied on voter suppression.

“Traditionally it’s always been Republicans suppressing votes in places. Let’s start protecting our voters. We know where they are,” the adviser, Justin Clark, said in audio obtained by the Associated Press. “Let’s start playing offense a little bit. That’s what you’re going to see in 2020. It’s going to be a much bigger program, a much more aggressive program, a much better-funded program.”

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...lections-trump

And now we are seeing this "much bigger program, a much more aggressive program, a much better-funded program" playing out as Trump continues this Republican strategy to win, this time by trying to shut down mail in voting. And if he can't force the courts to shut it down, he'll simply make sure the Post Office fails, which will accomplish the same thing.

No one should be surprised by this. It's all part of a proud GOP tradition, after all. And it's the only way they can win anymore.
My vote never has been suppressed by any republican nor the Republican party. On the contrary, the Dems are the ones who constantly are trying to make me feel inferior, bash me, discredit me, discriminate me, and cast me out just because I am extremely independent, profoundly analytical, well versed in many topics of World History, Foreign affairs, Philosophy, World Literature, Political Economy, and most of all because I am a man of profound convictions and scruples in all orders of life. Lay your eyes upon them and you shalt see that they are viciously barren. I always pass on them.
