24 Jan 2014


Attorney General Eric Holder when questioned by MSNBC's "The Cycle" co-host Ari Melber about republicans saying voter ID laws are for election integrity.

“I think many are using it for partisan advantage.”

“People have to understand that we are not opposed to photo identification in a vacuum, But when it is used in — certain ways to disenfranchise particular groups of people, whether by racial designation, ethnic origin, or for partisan reasons, that from my perspective is problematic.”

“I think it is being used in too many instances to depress the vote of particular groups of people who are not supported of the party that is advancing these photo ID measures.”

I guess that Eric (the red) Holder thinks preventing dead people and those in homes for the elderly and disabled from voting in mass for democrats comes under the heading of "voter suppression"

Republicans need to come out and say democrats are against voter id laws to aid cheating, instead of beating around the bush. Nearly everyone knows how to get an id if they want one, and most people don't know anyone who doesn't have a proper id. The law will prevent those who are not qualified to vote. Period! And, that is what the democrats don't want.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

If you want to know what the left is up to, just see what they're accusing us of doing. We're "depressing" the vote; they're making the entire elections process a fraud.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

You need an ID to obtain food stamps. You need an ID to watch Obama speak. The state of PA. passed a  law that the ID could be obtained for free, yet the dems wiped the voter ID law out. Homeless people can vote. They are just mad because it is hard for dems to pass off 1000's of bogus absentee ballots and bus in people to vote many times in many states. Dead people can't vote without ID's either.

Where is Holder on the military absentee ballots that never make it CONUS?

Military Absentee Ballots Delivered One Day Late, Would Have Swung Election For Romney

Is the GOP doing something to stop the horror of military ballots not making it? Or will they moan and groan about it as it happens again?

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
