    The Republicans’ Shameless War on Voting

    BY JOHN DEAN

    ——————————–

    There is absolutely no question that Republicans are trying to suppress non-whites from voting, throughout the Southern states, in an effort that has been accelerating since 2010. It is not difficult to catalogue this abusive Republican mission, which unfortunately has spread, in a few instances, to states above the Mason-Dixon Line as well.

    Nor is there any doubt whatsoever about why Republicans are doing this, since the demographics of the states where it is happening suggest that it is becoming increasingly difficult for white descendants of the Confederacy, with their puppet conservative politicians, and for conservatives in general, to retain control of government.

    Frankly, I find this voter suppression disgusting. Southern conservatives, who now control the GOP, have succeeded in destroying the party of Abraham Lincoln, with its once long and proud tradition of seeking to extend the voting franchise, not restrict it.

      Thank you so much for linking to this article, ladyhawke! Very interesting. And, what a turn-around from what the republican party used to be (regarding voting rights) to what it has become and is today!

      Thanks, Ladyhawke for sharing this post by John Dean. I am going to share it with some conservatives I know. Unfortunately, the seeds for the destruction of Abraham Lincoln’s Republican party began long time ago, in the late 1870’s and early 1880’s. John Dean’s boss, Richard Nixon, planted more seeds of destruction when he inaugurated his Southern strategy in the 1970’s. Ronald Reagan completed the destruction of Lincoln’s Republican party in 1980s. That is to say that the Republican party ceased to be the party of Lincoln in the 1980’s. That’s why all former Dixiecrats, who had been nominal Democrats, left, in mass, to join the Republican party. It’s true that the 21st century Republican party has grown more and more bizarre. As the great Bobfr accurately says, the GOP has been taken over by the extreme John Birch faction that was the darling of industrialist Koch, the father of the bothers Charles and David Koch. But, to be honest, the slow death of Lincoln’s Republican party began decades ago. For example two major Republican leaders, Berry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

      As an aside, I am especially amused by total ignorance of the so called Black conservatives who justify their membership in the Republican party because it was the party of Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. It’s as if history was frozen in the 1860’s. These Black conservatives are totally oblivious to the historical transformation of the Republican party that began with the end of Reconstruction. They are also equally oblivious to the historical transformation of the Democratic party which began in the 1930’s in the North but certainly picked the steam in the 1960’s, culminating in the passage of major Civil Rights laws.

      Another brilliant piece LL. Love is such a simple concept. Such a beautiful thing to talk about and witness but yet so incredibly hard to execute. You encapsulated what Pres. Obama conveyed. Hope and love is what binds us together. Love of country even when that country may disappoint you on occasion. Love of leader even when naysayers decry your love of him/her. Love of your fellow brother and sister even when they spit in your face and cling to their rigid narrow ideology. The courage to love is what makes us great. The courage to love is what lifts us. The courage to love is what helps keep our eyes on the horizon and get up everyday to perfect our union.

      Bravo LL. Bravo!

    Short story: Quick trip to grocery store. Had a sticker on for the guy who is running against Cong. John Duncan. (Seat has been in the Duncan family for 47 years!!!!!!!!!)Old gent checked me out…..asked, “Is he a Republican or a Democrat?” I said, “Democrat and that he is running against John Duncan. He said he’ll never beat Duncan and the seat will probably be in the family another 47 years. (I had told him that earlier.) He asked if I watched the convention. I said “absolutely.” He said, “People here don’t want to believe it but news flash: Obama will win. He will for sure win FL and that’s all he needs to do. He’ll get the Hispanic vote, the women’s vote and the elderly are scared to death about Medicare so he’ll get that vote too.” (Sounded like he had info about/from FL). When I was done, he patted my shoulder and said “good luck, young lady. Nice talking with you.”

      I went to azcentral.com (my state newspaper website – I’m in Arizona)
      I was looking for the classifieds because my sister is running an ad there and wanted me to see it.
      Anyway, I’m scrolling down page and see this poll:

      Now that both parties have made their convention pitches, who will win the presidential election?

      Barack Obama. 52.43%
      Mitt Romney. 37.41%
      Hard to say. 10.15%
      Total Votes: 4314

      Now mind you, I realize this is not scientific and for all intents and purposes should mean squat
      BUT

      this is AZ!
      I really think people believe he will win and that Romney won’t. 🙂

        TrumpDog, I am you neighbor in CA. Is there anything we can do to turn Arizona blue? I saw some polls earlier on where President Obama was trailing by a few percentage points. Actually, my main interest is in the Senate seat where our Dem. candidate looks very competitive. It would be so good to win that seat.

    Ya’ll have got to read the transcript of this interview with Miss Ann in Iowa today. It’s worth the read

    http://www.kwqc.com/story/19484978/anne-romney-kwqc-tv6-interview-transcript

    A snippet:

    KWQC TV6: “What is your message to voters?”
    Ann Romney: “My message, really was, ‘women, I hear your voices,’ and the interesting thing about this economy, this tough economy that we’re going through, is that women have been hit the hardest. And I wanted to make sure that women of America knew that we have been across this country for the last year and a half and we are very aware of how tough it is for them…

    Ok, good start, then:

    KWQC TV6: “Here in Iowa, as you know, same-sex marriage is legal. Do you believe a lesbian mother should be allowed to marry her partner?”
    Ann Romney: “You know, I’m not going to talk about the specific issues. I’m going to let my husband speak on issues. I’m here to really just talk about my husband and what kind of husband and father he is and, you know, those are hot-button issues that distract from what the real voting issue is going to be at this election. That, it’s going to be about the economy and jobs…”

    Oh, there’s more:

    KWQC TV6: “Do you believe that employer-provided health insurance should be required to cover birth control?”
    Ann Romney: “Again, you’re asking me questions that are not about what this election is going to be about. This election is going to be about the economy and jobs.”

    KWQC TV6: “Well, a Pew research poll shows those issues are very important to women, ranking them either “important” or “very important.”
    Ann Romney: “You know, but I personally believe, and this is what I’m hearing from women all across the country that they are going to look for the guy that’s going to pull them out of the weeds and get them job security and a brighter future for their children. That’s the message…

    KWQC TV6: “Well, I don’t want to pull you off any message. You just told a reporter who was questioning you in Cleveland that you want women to have a secure and stable future. I asked you about marriage and whether lesbian mothers should be allowed to marry. Isn’t marriage a part of creating a stable future?”
    Ann Romney: “You know, again, I’m going to talk to you about the economy and about job creation and about how my husband is the right person for the right time. This is going to be an election that is very important for women, and we are going to make sure that their economic prosperity is more certain under a President Romney.”

        Nope, she speaks for women and the only concerns for women are the ones that Ann dictates! I did not think I could dislike another woman in politics as much as I did Sarah Palin but I am there with Ann. What an arrogant, insufferable person. I must say she and Mitt seem perfectly suited for each other. Both see everyone who is not in their economic circle as “you people”.

    A thought about “Romney” pulling ads out of certain states, and superpacs going in……I read recently that the Koch brothers will not put their money where they think they won’t win. They never spend money that won’t bring a return, and they follow polls too. This writer said Adelson will continue to spread money around, but the Kochs are much more careful about how they spend……that’s probably one reason they were able to hold on to their father’s money and increase it.
    Romney is coming to OKC for his one and only visit…..a fundraiser. We are, sadly, firmly in his pocket, so his visit is a fundraiser with Laura Bush. Tickets from $1,000 to $25,000. It is private. There are plenty of oilmen here who want NO regulations…..T. Boone Pickens, Aubrey McClendon of Chesapeake and more. He’ll do well financially here. These oilmen want no restrictions on fracking or drilling. They are not interested in alternative forms of energy.

    ‘ Obama gained on the Twitter Political Index, which measures how tweeters feel about a candidate on a scale of 1 to 100. The president’s ranking stood at 52 on Friday, up 2 points from a day earlier. Romney’s ranking stood at 9 on Friday. ‘

    I was monitoring (somewhat) Willard’s Nashua event to see if they would show the whole audience. Stadium holds around 4000. Just before the feed ended the camera pulled back and there in full view were Romney banners covering seats. Wonder how many more they covered in other areas. They only show a ribbon of people when he is greeting them.

      Presumably the press are not allowed to show his “crowds” – I’ve not been able to see the total audience at any of his rallies

        That’s right 99ts. And notice that we don’t see ANY pics of people lining up for tickets to his events, or see tweets from volunteers in his campaign…compared to President Obama. Everything in the o-campaign is transparent and is made accessible to the public via twitter, YouTube or other reports. And the Romney folks are just copying whatever they can, while keeping the rest of their campaign a TOP SECRET.

        Methinks the Romney campaign is run by the corporate media, Big Oil, and Koch $$$. There are no ordinary foot soldiers volunteering for that campaign. Every staffer on that campaign is a highly paid corporate employee. Even the “disillusioned Obama supporter” in his ad was a paid staffer from his campaign. He can’t even get ordinary folks to vouch for his policies. And the media wants us to think that Romney’s supporters are enthusiastic?

    vogue magazine promotes pbo merch:

    ‘ The glamorous Scarlett Johansson, who not only showed up to support the commander in chief, but did so in style, wearing a T-shirt from Runway to Win. The collection, which boasts designs by everyone from Tory Burch to Rag & Bone (with proceeds benefiting the Obama Victory Fund) went on sale last night during Fashion’s Night Out at the Diane von Furstenberg SoHo store with shoppers like Victor Cruz spotted perusing the politically minded wares amid the fanfare. ‘

    I haven’t heard nary a word about this.

    Doctors converge on DNC to defend Obamacare
    A big bus emblazoned with the words, “Patients Over Politics” rolled into town during Carolina Fest, and came to a stop a block or so from the site where Democrats had gathered for their national convention.

    Aboard were medical doctors from 17 states wearing their white smocks. They had just journeyed here from Tampa and the Republican National Convention. They are members of Doctors for America, a 6,000 member organization in all 50 states. They are defending the Affordable Care Act, often called “Obamacare,” that Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney promises to repeal if elected.

    How about Mitt’s excuse for not mentioning the troops. What a creep he is. These men and women are over there putting their lives on the line for us, and he can’t even thank them for their service.

    Is there a twitter handle for things we can solve with taxcuts? My ear hurts, tax cuts.

    Me thinks, all Ibama supporters donated this week. I gave up 100 dollars, not including the 50 at the beginning of the month.

    Chuckles ….

    “Flynt is taking out full-page ads in this Sunday’s edition of The Washington Post and Tuesday’s USA Today that promises “up to $1 million” for the dirt on Romney’s “unreleased tax returns and/or details of his offshore assets, bank accounts and business partnerships.” (But before you go calling the Hustler hotline, be aware that Flynt will need “documented evidence of your claims.”)

    According to the ad, all correspondence will be kept confidential—so if you’re a former Bain exec with a bone to pick (or without a golden parachute), you might want to get a pen.”

    Herman 999 Cain drew a “crowd” of 75 students in Iowa City earlier this week. Hahaha! He supposedly isn’t part of Romney campaign but is on a bus tour campaigning for him, telling students their future is bleak under Obama, that they won’t be able to find a job when they graduate. Who in the world is funding this bus tour???

      Well done Bob! Gov. Granholm was absolutely “SPECTACULAR.” If Eric Holder decides to serve only one term, I would love to see Gov. J. Granholm as our next AG.

    Wow 577,000 donations this week according to Julianna Smoot. Trying to get to 600,000 by tonight!!

    Just in: The RNC is going to try and match the Ground game of OFA. Good luck with that.
    Maybe a massive paid Tele -marketing. Don’t forget the 400k Union Canvassers, these next two months.
    That said, the RNC will probably have only Paid Tele marketers- just making calls, what about foot soldiers.
    Someone tell RNC, they seem worried, if they would leak that to Press.

    Here’s the Ann Romney interview that was on the Ed Show. She’s getting worse and worse in her dealings with the press.

    We’re back from hearing POTUS at the University. That building he spoke in front of – that’s where I work! Anyhow, it was AWESOME! We weren’t very close – we were about 200 feet away, but still! I couldn’t believe that was him! Or VP Joe! Or FLOTUS or Jill! Wow. We took off while they were shaking hands and planned to go for dinner, but all the main roads were blocked for the entourage. So we took a back country road and decided to drive up to the airport and watch AF1 take off. We sped down the back roads about 25 miles and made it to the airport road not 3 minutes before the whole entourage of 34 cars (Ron counted) went by. We waved to all the limos – I saw the green dress in one of them. Then we waited around 15 more minutes to see AF1 – but it went west and banked around to the north, we weren’t expecting that. Anyhow – GREAT evening.
