(WorldNetDaily)   Colorado Republicans, unhappy with a lack of black voters to disenfranchise, decide to target the gypsy minority instead. Also, they're upset that there's 'no way to find out how they voted'   ( divider line

Republicans: We'll commit voter fraud to prove there's voter fraud.

Judging by the article, and it's often difficult to understand World Net Daily articles, but it appears that it's not about the Gypsy people, they're just using that term because they weren't sure how else to throw something racist into the article.

This seems like pure WHARRGARBL as opposed to WHARRGARBL to disguise a hidden agenda. It is just stoking fear of an imaginary situation and is about as likely as Mexicans shop-lifting superglue so that they can sneak into white folks homes at night and glue their assholes shut.

"Voter fraud" efforts are really about keeping Democrats from voting but I can't see what cracking down on gypsies is supposed to achieve.

So what it boils down to is the GOP is pissed that they couldn't gerrymander the holy fark out of the state so that something like this couldn't happen?

By and large, people don't care enough about elections to even show up, much less vote twice or otherwise illegally. This is something republicans just can't grasp because it is something they think THEY would do to tamper with an election.

I like to think that I'm a pretty open guy.  Socially very liberal, fiscally somewhat conservative.  I tend to have a let and let live outlook on life.

I'm not racist.  I have a black lesbian in my close group of friends.  I'm married to an Asian.  I can speak English, Chinese, some Spanish, and a few words in various other languages.

But...  And I know I'll get some grief over this....  There is one group that I just can't deal with.

They're liars.  They have a weird belief system. They'll take your money every chance they get.  They stick together and support each other to the detriment of the areas they descend upon.

I'm sorry I just can't handle the GOPsies.

SevenizGud: shower_in_my_socks: We're unpopular with voters

[ image 614x424]

Yeah, just drifting into obscurity with their irrelevance.

More people voted for Democrats than for Republicans. Republicans only have any sort of power because quite a few states are gerrymandered to Hell and back.

Republican motto: If you can't win, cheat.

cc_rider: cubic_spleen: The Republican author of this article, Jack Minor, has a list of other, similar articles over on

So WND is firmly in the "White Nationalist" camp now?

Actually, judging from many of the comments there lately, this is not even surprising. I bet if the "real" Jesus showed up at their doorsteps, most of 'em would be inclined to "stand their ground".

Lately? WND was completely committed to the whole birther nonsense (wouldn't be surprised if they still were). I don't think it's a case of 'lately'. WND has been the ,"not racist, but yeah... completely racist"  news site for as long as I can remember it existing.

I doubt it will swing an election, but a provision that lets any state resident vote in what's supposed to be a district election based on their intent to move there in the future is highly odd. I don't think I've ever heard of an election provision like that.

Are you guys sure this isn't designed to target college students?

Typically, when Republicans have gotten on these "they haven't sufficiently established their residency!!!" kicks, they've been intent on putting college students in a pickle between their hometown and their college town to block them from voting... because college students have typically been known to open more than one book in their lives... something that doesn't generally bode well for the GOP.

DrD'isInfotainment: Nadie_AZ: Jon Caldera, president of the free-market Independence Institute in Denver

WTF? -i ndependence-institute-finding-its-place

No seriously...WTF?

Here's a gem from the founder, John Caldera "It really helps that we added that barely legal Asian porn site,"

The Asian porn joke is how you know they are a "free market" think tank, and not just republicans. Never mind that they were founded by a theocrat, or that they employ Tom Tancredo. And forget the fact that they bring in speakers like Joe the Plumber and Mary Katherine Ham. They are OK with weed and can talk about porn without getting a case of the vapors. Therefore they are called libertarian according to the media.

pacified: the two Colorado GOP articles on this tab show you why the Democrats have controlled the state for nearly 10 years.  Looks like 2014 ain't gonna change much.

Yeah, but just wait until all those CO counties secede and form their own state. Things will be different then!

Wow, they actually say "gypsies".  I thought that was subby paraphrasing.  Probably because saying "Them" in a deep voice while waggling your eyebrows doesn't come across well in text.

That's just plain old, old-fashioned, high quality xenophobia.

Critics point out an unscrupulous person could lie, and unless he admits to lying, there appears to be little law enforcement could do.

DamnYankees: Why is someone from a "free-market" think tank talking about election laws?

free-market is more of a branding thing for the GOP. If you go to Popeyes they sell you chicken and do not pop you in the eye. If it actually meant what it implies then every policy the GOP free marketeers put out wouldn't be to the benefit of established players.
