theknuckler_33: "In these towns, you can have only a hundred or so people voting and you've got to pay three poll workers for three weeks - it adds up to be a lot of money.No, it doesn't.
SlothB77: I thought rural areas were all white.Minorities are in urban areas.Also, no citations for the numerous wild claims about disenfranchising minority voters.
Weatherkiss: I look forward to the day when our history textbooks in school cover the 2000-2020 era and have pictures of teabaggers next to the paragraphs that state how a combination of mentally ill racists and old white guys with money tried to buy their elections, tried to suppress the votes through voter I.D. laws, shut down polling sites, etc., along with their war on women and the homogheys.
MFK: pretty farking hilarious that the first thing these states do after the voting rights act is gutted is to start dismantling access to the polls. It's almost like they really WERE trying to prevent minorities from voting or something.these people are the farking worst.
somedude210: on a related note, isn't this what the plan has been all along? Get rid of polling places in "democrat areas" (poor, minorities, non-christian, etc) and then start discriminating against them when they *do* go to vote?
SecretAgentWoman: Why can't we have internet voting already? WHY?!
