If partisan politicians and special interest groups have their way, this election may be stolen before the first vote is cast. In states across the country, governors and legislators have conspired with business interests to steal the vote from racial and ethnic minorities, young people, the elderly and other groups that do not share their values. The tactics vary from strict voter ID laws, harsh restrictions on voter registration, cuts to early voting, redistricting and illegal voter purges to the systematic disenfranchisement of formerly incarcerated people. But they all have the same result: suppressing the vote.

It is no coincidence that these measures have been railroaded through statehouses just months before a major presidential election. This is a coordinated attempt to suppress turnout on behalf of the would-be oligarchs and big business groups behind these efforts, such as the Koch brothers and the American Legislative Exchange Council, at the expense of anyone who opposes their agenda.

We all remember the lesson from the 2000 presidential race, when George W. Bush won Florida by 537 votes: Every vote counts. After the Supreme Court handed Bush the keys to the country, half of America felt that the election had been stolen. It is worrisome to see that partisans are actively trying to rig the playing field this November. But the big difference between 2000 and 2012 is that this year, we can see this train coming down the tracks, and we still have time to stop it.

Like any good thief, proponents of voter suppression have “cased” the country to figure out where they can be most effective. They have targeted their lobbying efforts in crucial swing states like Pennsylvania, Virginia and Florida. And they are setting their sights far higher than 537 votes.

In 2008, Barack Obama won Pennsylvania by a healthy margin of 620,478 votes. This year, the state passed a restrictive photo ID law, currently under litigation, that would threaten the voting rights of 758,000 voters. Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai betrayed the motivation behind the law in June when he told a group of his colleagues that the voter ID law “is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”

In Virginia, the Romney campaign asked the state’s Board of Elections to throw out more than 15,000 registration forms that had already been approved. The board elected not to respond to the baseless request.

And in Florida, Gov. Rick Scott has steadily chipped away at Florida’s voting base since entering office in 2010. One of his first actions as governor was to reinstate a ban on voting rights for ex-

offenders and to add a five-year waiting period for rights to be restored. With a stroke of his pen, Scott ensured the silence of one and a half million voices this election, including over half a million African-Americans.

Florida also passed a law that chopped the state’s early voting period in half and introduced obscure requirements for groups that register voters, including a strict 48-hour window to submit registration forms. After the law was passed, the League of Women Voters pulled the plug on all registration activities in the state of Florida in order to avoid heavy fines for breaking the rules.

These efforts are intentionally suppressive, and they are widespread. But in the past few months, the NAACP and a coalition of advocacy groups have sounded the alarm. In Michigan, we met with Gov. Rick Snyder and convinced him to veto a strict photo ID law that would have suppressed thousands of voters of color. In Wisconsin, we challenged the state’s photo ID law in court and stopped it from taking effect. And in Florida, the NAACP and other groups filed suit against the new registration rules and earned a preliminary injunction.

As for the states where suppressive measures go unchecked, there is still time to take back our election by stepping up our registration efforts and helping disenfranchised voters navigate the new laws. The NAACP has been engaged in a nationwide voter registration drive called “This is My Vote” to do just that. We have registered over 25,000 people in Florida alone. You can visit www.thisismyvote.org to learn about the law in your state and how you and your friends can register to vote.

America’s most cherished asset is free and fair elections, a level playing field on Election Day. Our right to vote is the right upon which all our other rights depend. Let’s not wake up on Nov. 7 and find out that our election has been stolen again. These next few months are crucial in making sure that does not happen.

Benjamin Todd Jealous is President and CEO of the NAACP.

Political Animal Blog August 20, 2012 9:16 AM Tripling Down on the Welfare Lie

I had naively thought that perhaps after two rounds of heavy advertisements advancing a race-baiting pack of lies about the Obama administration’s welfare policies, the Romney/Ryan campaign would pocket whatever advantage it had derived and move in a different direction before the mendacity of the attacks began to afflict even the consciences of cynical MSM political reports. But no: there’s a new ad, which dares defend its accuracy via (a) a completely empty editorial from the ever-partisan Richmond Times-Dispatch that in turn appears to rest its trust in the accuracy of the ads on (b) the opinion of Daily Caller columnist Mickey Kaus. Yes, it’s Mickey Kaus’ ultimate fantasy: being the indirect author of a multi-million dollar assault on his old enemies among social policy liberals.

If you actually go read the Kaus column that appears to have become via the Richmond papers Mitt Romney’s ex post facto justification for his ads, even Mickey admits that its central charges are “overstated and oversimplified.” His everybody’s-lying semi-defense of the ad is based purely and simply on Kaus’ judgment that the people in charge of welfare policy at HHS are known by Mickey to be enemies of the work requirement, and therefore in announcing an openness to waiver applications must have been moving towards an effort to overturn work requirements entirely. Mickey’s big aha moment—a line way, way down in the weeds of an HHS memo suggesting a possible pilot project allowing certain training programs to be counted temporarily as “work”—doesn’t provide much justification for an ad that explicitly says Obama has abolished any work or training requirement, and makes the new policy: “they just mail you your welfare check.” This is a blatant lie even if you buy Mickey Kaus’ omniscient old-ax-grinding knowledge of the inner evil intent of HHS bureaucrats.

Anyone authentically worried about the future of work-based welfare reform ought to be a bit more concerned about the Romney/Ryan ticket’s open and undisputed intent to deeply undermine all the “make work pay” supports that are essential to the success of reform, especially in a weak economy: the earned income tax credit, food stamps, Medicaid (and for many of the working poor, the Medicaid expansion provided for by the Affordable Care Act), and job training resources.

Ah, but why am I even wasting time arguing about this? The malignant heart of the Romney/Ryan campaign’s attack line isn’t any fact or piece of data, but simply the ad hominem assertion that of course Barack Obama wants to take your money and give it to those people without condition, because he’s one of them and that’s who he represents. And they’ll keep running these ads to the bitter end, particularly so long as they can count on a hackish editorial board and a “rogue” score-settling blogger to provide them a tiny shred of cover.

Anti obame partisan rhetoric

[-] -1 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

Voting for Obama is supporting the current system which is the same system which OWS sprung up against. OWS is an anti-government protest started under Obama's regime. Let's not forget that.

If you must vote, then you should vote for a third party. A party that promises real change. But, really, an OWS supporter should understand that the current system of government is broken beyond repair.

OWS is about fixing everything ourselves, grassroots styles. It's not about asking a government to do it by giving it our votes.

The only difference between Obama and Bush is that Obama keeps it on the down low. He doesn't scream and seek attention like Bush. But, in essence, he does the same things. He sends drones to wars, helps the rich get richer, etc... OWS is completely against Obama policies, just as it is completely against republican policies. Again, if you must vote because you still believe in the current system instead of believing in grassroots changes, then please, vote for a third party.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

You are simply spewing anti Obama partisan attacks.

You offer no positive alternative! You focus only on trying to convince progressive OWS supporters from voting because the would likely vote dem.

In this way you serve the republicans. You are a partisan anti dem?

[-] -2 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

You are simply spewing anti Obama partisan attacks.

That is what OWS was started for. It's an anti-government protest started under Obama's regime. Of course I'm anti Obama. I hate what he is doing to this country. He sends drones to wars, helps the rich get richer, etc...

I'm for grassroots changes. I'm for taking control ourselves instead of counting on representatives from any of the parties to do it for us.

You are a partisan anti dem?

I am anti current government system. That means I don't believe any of the parties can make a difference under the current system. Obama is doing much of the same crap that Bush did before him, he's just not so hoopla about it. We don't need that crap anymore. We need to take control.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Yeah man. I'm with you. We gotta take over. Lets take the streets. I took 5th Ave with Tom Morello on the may day rally with the guitarmy!

I will continue! But if you tell me not to vote then you are seeking to help the republicans.

That we disagree on.

Good luck in all you good efforts

[-] -2 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

If you have to vote, then you should vote for what you believe in, not for some lesser evil you think could change in the future. This is the problem with US and why so little change is taking place. This is why there is only two parties. When you vote for Obama on election day you're basically telling him you don't want change. You're saying you agree with his current platform. This is a huge problem. If you voted for a third party that was close to what you believed in, then you would be doing the democratic process a much bigger favor. Sure, that party might not win this year, but it would get one more vote, a little bit stronger. It would say that someone supports their ideas. If nobody votes for them because they vote for the lesser evil, then those ideas end up dying because they are not being supported. Voting at the elections is not just about who wins, it's also about lending support to smaller parties that have the ideas you like. It should always be about voting for what you believe in.

Look up at the north. In Canada it used to be the Conservatives VS the Liberals, but in the last few decades the small party of the NDP rose up slowly and finally became the official opposition last time around. That happened because back in the day, people voted for them even though they were small. People voted for what they believed in so those ideas rose to the top.

Honestly, it doesn't matter much if the Democrats or the Republicans get elected next time around. Both parties are old and worthless.

What's important is that you push new ideas, ideas you believe in. Either by voting for a third party which espouses those ideas, or by using direct democracy in the street to make those ideas heard and known.

Obama won't do anything for you.

I would rather see the Republicans get elected and have a lot of support for new third parties that share left wing ideas, then have the Democrats elected without having any support for the smaller newer left wing parties.

Because, if Obama gets the vote, then it means people don't want change. But, if he loses the vote because all the left wingers voted for small third parties further left, then it will send a big message to the Democrats that people want change. That's how you change the democratic party, by telling them you don't agree with their current platform. What you want to do, vote for them, it not about change, it's about saying you agree with what they are now.

Opting-out is not a solution - never has been - never will be.

1st priority this election - keep the compulsive pathological corpoRAT mittens and his Sociopath running partner out of office.

[-] -2 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

Voting for exactly what you believe in is never opting out. Voting for the lesser evil so that you will feel safe in the short term is. If we want new ideas, better ideas, then we need to lend support to those ideas. Voting for the Democrats is lending support to the very platform that was in place when OWS started. It is not voting for change. It's voting for the status quo.

A country is always better off when people vote for exactly what they believe in, not when they play games and try to elect the lesser evil.

And, really, is Obama even a lesser evil? Is basically the same as Bush except he's a little more low key. A vote for him means you agree with him sending drones to wars, with him helping the rich get richer, etc... How can you be an OWS supporter, then walk in and vote for those ideas? It makes no sense.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I do support the democratic Agenda. The parties are vastly different. Repubs are 1% puppets. Dems have only failed when they support repub policies.

Many dems do not, and will not! We need more of them. Elect progressives

I have voted 3rd party (Nader, WF) I may again!. I will not encourage people here to do that because if they are in a swing state that might help the 1% puppet republicans.

Ok?

[-] -2 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

If you believe in the current platform of the democrats, then you are a democrat and not an OWS supporter. Nothing wrong with that, but you should be clear about what you are and what you want.

I am a registered independent.

I know what I want, I know what I am. I don't need you to define me. Or to tell me I'm not an OWS supporter. You don't decide that. OWS embraces all non violent tactics (voting) and welcomes all political persuasions.

Your every effort is to convince people to give up their rights to vote, attack Pres Obama/Dems, and to try to silence me or anyone who challenges your efforts to keep us from voting.

Do something positive. You'll probably feel better.

Elect progressives, Vote out anti OWS republicans

[-] -1 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

I don't need you to define me.

I'm not defining you. You are defining yourself as an Obama supporter post after post after post. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's not being an OWS supporter. It's antithetical.

Your every effort is to convince people to give up their rights to vote, attack Pres Obama/Dems, and to try to silence me or anyone who challenges your efforts to keep us from voting.

The only thing I'm saying is that you should push the ideas you believe in. If you believe in Obama's platform, then vote for it. If you believe in a third party, vote for that. If you don't believe in the system, then scream in the streets. Just be honest with yourself and which ideas you are pushing forwards. Don't push for Obama one day, then protest against him the next. You don't get democracy with this type of confusing behavior.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Can I support the democratic agenda, protest when they compromise with your republican 1% tools, And vote to make sure your republican 1% tools don't get any more power. And at the same time protest with my progressive friends (OWS) against the conservative policies we've followed for 30 years? Is that ok with you?

That IS how we get change! That is how we lay the ground work for a new system of direct democracy. It will come Evolutionarily, not revolutionarily.

You don't seem to be making sense.

[-] 0 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

Can I support the democratic agenda

Sure, that makes you a Democrat.

And at the same time protest with my progressive friends (OWS) against the conservative policies we've followed for 30 years?

OWS is not against conservative polices. They are against policies espoused by both the democrats and the republicans. They are against the machinations of Obama and the machinations of Bush and friends. They are against the entire system.


It makes little sense to be pushing for the Democrats one day, and then be protesting against them the next.

That IS how we get change!

No, you get change by being consequential. You have to be honest and push for what you believe in. You can't help a party one day, and be against it the next. You have to support the ideas you really believe in.


You don't seem to be making sense.

I think it's evident to everyone here that it's you that doesn't make sense since you say that you support Obama but that you want to protest against him with OWS as well.


My guess is that you work for the Democratic party and that you don't care about OWS one bit. That would explain why you feverishly push for ideas coming from Obama instead of supporting grassroots ideas emanating from OWS work.

[-] 2 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

What grassroots ideas emanating from OWS do I not support?

Now you're just lying.

I can support an agenda and protest an action from a politician with ease. No contradiction there. You just have be a little more sophisticated than that boss. Nothing is simple. I support Dodd Frank but protest the weakness republicans created when they insisted on watering it down.

And if you can speak for OWS, then so can I.! And I say all our problems are rooted in conservative policies, and OWS IS against those conservative policies.

BAM!

[-] -2 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

I can support an agenda and protest an action from a politician with ease. No contradiction there.

You know that the Democrats support the war with the usage of drones etc... You know that the Democrats help the rich get richer, etc... These are parts of their platform. If you vote for them, you are voting for this. So, it makes little sense to protest against it afterwards.

You sound like a child. What you should do it vote for the party you truly believe in if there is one. Is there a party that is against the war, that wants to save the environment, that wants to help the poor and the needy, etc... It certainly is not the Democratic party. That's the party you should vote for if you want change. You should give your energy and your support to those ideas.

And if you can speak for OWS, then so can I.!

I never said I was speaking for OWS. I'm giving my opinions. I only speak for myself.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

I am a registered independent. I support Dems because they support the progressive policies we need to correct the damage from the republican conservative 1% plutocrats.

As it turns OWS came along and supports the same progressive policies and are against the conservative policies that have created all our problems.

I would love to change everything myself wihout using the exosting corrupt system. But that is not possible yet. I am however working towards that while I work to improve the lives of the 99% in the only system we have.

I am doing the right thing. Protesting frequently to create the new system, working with what we got to improve the lives of the 99%, and agitating for passage of the laws that can lay the ground work for the new system.

All you do is attack dems, try to convince progressive OWS supporters to give up their right to vote, And try to silence me.

Try something postive. It's life affirming.

OWS is not here to give the backbone back the the democrats. OWS is here to give a backbone to the population so they can change things themselves, through grassroots. You keep looking at the democrats for answers because you are a democrat, not an OWS supporter.

You have a great deal of anti dem rhetoric. Sounds like republican talking points. And they don't appear to be true.

The Dems are the party better for the poor and needy! They are pushing for higher taxes on the wealthy and have cut working class taxes. They have ended one war, ending the other, have reduced our military killing from 1 mill+ to just thousands. They support greentech, and repealing the subs on fossil fuels.

If you are unclear about the specifics of OWS you can get a pretty good picture by reading the republican agenda. If repubs are for it! OWS is against it.

[-] 0 points by trollanalysis (-145) 1 year ago

OWS is both against Wall Street and the government. It's about making grassroots changes and not waiting for a representative to make those changes for us because they won't and can't. If Obama was the solution, he would have cleaned up Wall Street a long time ago. The current system is broke and needs to be changed.

Voting for Obama is supporting the status quo, the very same status quo that is leading us to nowhere and which OWS sprung up against.

You need to learn to take control instead of asking politicians to control things for you.

You DO NOT understand OWS. You should be on a pro-Obama site. What you are is a democrat reformist, and not an anti-government grassroots change seeking OWS supporter.

You spend your days here talking about Obama and how he could be changed to help us all. Others spend their days doing direct action and building a new reality through grassroots actions. You can call yourself an OWS protester if that makes you feel good. Do what you will. But, at the end of the day, are you really doing direct action and building a new world? No, you're telling us we should embrace the status quo and lend our support to the current government, the one that OWS sprung up against. That makes little sense.
