As ID Laws Risk Voter Suppression, Intimidation Fears Grow w/ Tea Party Group “Poll Watcher”

DemocracyNow.org – A coalition of groups are planning to stage a protest outside the Republican National Convention today to decry new voter ID laws and cutbacks in early voting. To discuss voting rights ahead of November, we’re joined by two guests: the Rev. Charles McKenzie of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition and organizer of a protest today at Tampa’s Centennial Park in Tampa against voter suppression; and Brentin Mock, a Colorlines reporter covering the challenges presented by new voter ID laws, suppression of voter registration drives, and other attempts to limit electoral power of people of color. Mock’s latest article reveals how a Tea Party-backed organization called “True The Vote” is building a nationwide “poll watcher” network for November that critics say is designed to intimidate voters.

Republicans admit… they don’t want EVERYONE to vote

I think Republican efforts to try and stop people from voting is UN-Democratic and UN-American.

Voter challenging / purging / suppression is an assault on Democracy and should be treated as such.

According to statistics in this video, out of over 196 Million votes cast over a 5 year period under the Bush administration there were only 86 documented cases of voter fraud.

Therefore, it is clear that all of the Republican efforts to purge votes, pass UN-Democratic voter suppression laws, reduce the days people can vote and challenge voters is designed to disfranchise democrat voters to make SURE President Obama loses this election.

We fight wars to bring democracy to other countries while the GOP fights to stop people from voting here. The GOP is anti-democracy and anti-American.

This is making a MOCKERY of everything the United States is supposed to stand for.
