Would they try and recreate Jim Crow laws in the deep south?

If you look around, you might find the, oh so fashionable (for the GOP), "model" in a new list.

Certain old southerners. Others below the mason-sixon line actually repealed the racist death penalty.

So there is hope if we can more of these type of pols as opposed to the old southern vote suppressing pols.

Sowing the truth, is indeed a tough row to hoe, in the face of institutionalized lies.

Stating the obvious, without early voting few people would vote. How’s that for a example of how involved people are in politics?

I don’t think race is a big factor in having honest elections, Obviously race is a factor in who people vote for. And the politicians will try every trick in the book to get your vote. But to think it’s common that elections are rigged or some people kept from voting probably isn’t true.

If the 15th amendment is enforced to the letter our elections will be fair.

Didn't you see the lines of hundreds of white voters waiting to vote?
And all of the Democratic party's voter ID schemes?

Oh, so the 38 states suppression efforts (y republicans) targeting minorities didn't happen?

Read some of the links on this thread.

Voter repression? How does requiring a valid ID repression? If we didn’t require some type valid ID then voter fraud would be ten times worse.

There is no voter fraud at the voting booth. no one has proven that.

State issued picture IDs are cost prohibitive and acts like the poll tax from the past when the effort was to prevent the poor from voting.

The ballots are counted in secret. There's no way to tell if there is fraud or not.

[-] 2 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

That has nothing to do with Ids and people defrauding the poll workers.

Right?

No, you are correct. Both parties care only about power.
