First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the college students,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a college student.

Then they came for the senior citizens ,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a senior citizen.

Then they came for the minorities,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a minority.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

……………..AND ONLY THEY WERE LEFT TO VOTE
……………..AND I GOT WHAT I DESERVED

SCOTUS got the ball rolling a month ago, I even made a YouTube about it:

Of course, you hit the nail on the head
VOTING is the only way to overcome the crapitalist oligarchs

Actually, the voting suppression may be a blessing in disguise
It makes our path to democracy clear for every
progressive & progressive group-
==================================================
MAKE SURE YOU GET EVERYONE TO REGISTER AND VOTE
==================================================

If they are suppressing everyone's ability to vote, how are we to register everyone and vote?

suppressing does not mean ending.
them- require government photo ID
us- bring unregistered voters to get their ID
them- reduce voting hours
us- bring voters to polls
them- poll "watchers" to scare voters
us- poll watchers & publicity to protect voters
them- support alec & koch us- support Brennan Center & NAACP

I have absolutely zero tolerance for people who complain about early voting hours.

Its one fuckin day a year. Get off your lazy fuckin asses and get going. Perhaps in the other 364 days a year some of these people could find a few hours to get involved as well.

Sick of all this hand holding nonsense. Its about time we stop treating everyone like a bunch of helpless idiots and start demanding they stand up and take charge of their god damned lives.

do you know what other countries do about "early" voting ?
specifically - WHY reduce voting hours? unless you are an Rs

You're making it sound like the getting an ID thing won't be a problem.
