1 Tiny Alien Kitties are Watching You  Mon, May 9, 2011 9:57:26am

I wonder why the legislature didn't just re-institute the poll tax, that would keep far many more lefties away from the polls...sigh. :(

Updinged and recommended. Just another in a series of GOP moves to Rock Block the Vote.

I have already heard demands that we re-institute "intelligence" tests and property ownership requirements to vote.

Unbelievable.

Because they can't legally restrict voting to white, Christian, property owning males over 21 y.o.

Any lawyers in the room willing to comment on if there is any chance that the Supremes would get involved in this? Could this law or similar ones be reasonably established as violations of the Voting Rights Act?

What they can do however is continually add restrictions until the only access to voter registration is in one central office per Florida county while also enacting laws to severely penalize anyone trying to mobilize people to register if they make even the slightest clerical or procedural mistake.

It amounts to the same thing in the long run really...

I have a law degree and I don't know that I am entirely sure how to register to vote. IIRC, I ticked a box when I registered for Selective Service. I suppose you go to Town Hall, or the likes?

Just look what this ACORN has grown into.

In a changing demographic landscape that strongly disfavors them, this is one of the things the gop can do to stay competitive. Most of the voters affected lean heavily Dem, and low turnouts typically favor the gop...so the gop's attitude is "why not?"

That did not turn out, optically speaking, the way it ought to have done. The "fix" applies to what the GOP's attitude is, and NOT to palomino's post.

There goes another right; the right to freely assemble.

The GOP as currently instituted really doesn't care much for the Constitution, do they?
