    But seriously, "voter fraud" was always intended to be the guise under which the GOP could disenfranchise liberals, young people, and minorities. When this was pointed out, conservatives balked. But look around. GOP-run states are closing polling places in big cities and other areas with dense minority populations. Texas is arresting people for trying to protect the right of college kids to vote. North Dakota wrote a law meant to disenfranchise Native Americans. Blacks in Georgia are being purged from the voter rolls and not allowed to re-register. The modern Republican party does not want fair elections, does not care about election integrity, and frankly does not even want a representative democracy.

    they realized long ago they can't win with fair elections. they tried this same crap all through the w years, you know, that awesome era that has been conveniently erased from the collective conscience.

    GA is in a world of hurt. Thatís an unfair tactic and Iím sure itís against a law somewhere. Why hasnít anyone brought charges? Is there something that can be done?

    Yep. Strike. I keep saying this over and over. Peaceful demonstrations with everyone in the street.
    Short of getting locked and loaded, thereís no other viable option that will work. Especially with who controls the government and the courts (now).
    The only thing neither of them can force you to do is work; trying to do that will certainly bring the violence.

    Or like the (D) you need in other one party states like Cali and New York.

    Had he ran as a republican, I believe Maddox would have beaten Ivey handily in the primary and would be the next governor. As it is, he’ll carry about 7 counties and lose by 30 points.

    He did run as a Republican in the primary but did it under the name Tommy Battle.

    Huh?

    Tommy is a drab, old white guy and had low name recognition throughout the state. That’s what doomed him—NOT being a moderate republican. OTOH Maddox is young, enthusiastic, can relate to millennials and a diverse population, and is actually conservative on some issues. Not competing on the republican side AND embracing Medicare expansion is ultimately what will keep him in the mayors office in Tuscaloosa. No doubt in my mind that he would have beaten Ivey in a primary if he had competed as an R and towed the conservative line. Not saying that I agree with that, but I do believe that is the state of play.

    So to remove your name from the list requires three years of not voting and not responding to official State inquiries about why you aren't voting? Sounds like people are surpressing themselves, not the government doing it.

    Why get out and vote when you can just play the victim with these headlines though?

    thanks, i am aware of the myriad "justifications" for continuing to promote policies that remove minority voters from voting rolls.
