Forum Post: The ALEC Voter Purge.

Posted 2 years ago on June 7, 2012, 6:29 p.m. EST by shoozTroll (17632)

Would it surprise anyone here that ALEC and it's founder Paul Weyrich are behind the voter purges going on all around us?

That the Kochs are mearly taking over where Weyrich left off, only with infinitely more money.

This why the no vote crowd around here gets accused of being "right" wing.

I've actually heard the tape of this. It's quite real.

Good post. Not surprising. Beware of anyone who tells anyone not to vote.

It's a conspiracy.

Yet it's no theory.

It's happening in many of the States as we bark at each other.

Where are the comments from our Florida brethren?

Are they blind to what is happening in their own State?

Here is a comment from someone in Florida, you mental midget:

I went to a rally at the courthouse where Dick Durbin and Bill Nelson were raising awareness of the new voter laws.

I could not stress enough, to the crowd, that while this is nonsense, and there is not enough fraud in teh system to even be wasting time on this, it is nothing more than distractionary nonsense to keep the people pitted against each other.

I abused the Republicans for allowing their leaders to waste time on such meaningless nonsense. And I abused the Dems for pandering to two sell out establishment hacks in Durbin and Nelson, both of which had just signed onto SOPA.

Its all bullshit. I've done a lot of voter registration. The real crime in Florida legislation is that we now have only three business days to turn them in, and they all must be 100% correct or I MAY BE LIABLE. Granted, you have to be a moron to screw up a registration, but its just more useless nonsense. The state ID stuff is a non issue, because people who go to vote and dont have a state ID are so few and far inbetween, it wont sway elections either way.

This is all just more bullshit to keep us divided, not focusing, and not joining forces and addressing the real problems.

If I had my way, 100% of the people would be allowed to vote.

When the two choices are sold out at the federal level, and feds have all the power and money, the entire country is going to continue to go into the toilet until they collapse us.

Opening with an insult??

That's very like your attitude in general.

Not only that, it completely ignored the activities of ALEC in Florida.

I take it you're pro-ALEC then?

It goes well with you attitude.

I'm completely anit-Alec. I just get sick of you focusing on these issues and assuming that everyone who lives in one of these states and doesnt constantly address it has nothing to say on it.

I GO to these things. I'm there. Trust me, I know whats going on.

And me going and talking to the people that show up from an unbiased, un-media-molested, non partisan view point does more good certainly than chatting about it on here.

This is just so freakin typical of the butcher job the media has done on our country- you dont like what I said, so it means that I must support alec.

They have the arguement and the conclusion all laid out for you. No thinking or discussion needed.

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

Except you've never focused on them in the least.

Quite the opposite.

There are myriad threads on ALEC, I can't recall any comment in them from you.

[-] -1 points by hchc (3297) from Tampa, FL 2 years ago

Youre right shooz, going and protesting the actual hearings is nothing compared to posting on this site.

Functioning democracy requires the people's thought out consent.

The right to vote should not be impeded

.

People need time to consider their vote

and discuss that vote with confidants

.

Daily worries should be set aside to focus on social issues

.

I propose that

Elections be made State and National Holidays

Conscious voting measures the people's desire .

The workweek routine must halt for people to consider their power

.

If voting day is a holiday,

everyone will know that it is voting day

where they can wake up and for once not be late for work

.

Doormat, how do they vote in England ?

I agree Matt, and will add that I believe suppressing the vote in any way should be considered a grievous form of treason.

Thanks for the post, here’s another link to the story, I wish there were very stiff time in jail for wrongly deigning a person the right to vote, all of this is crap because any ballot can be held till ID is confirmed if needed and there is never a need to stop someone from casting the ballot.

There can never be enough awareness of what ALEC is doing.

Never,

And guess who has spent a fortune to push an Article 5 Constitutional Convention?
And guess who has produced and delivered to hundreds of their paid stooges - a 40 page manual on how to push an Article 5 Constitutional Convention?


you do want what alec wants, don't you ?


[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 2 years ago

My guess would be that ALEC wants it all.
