it is not false, keep trying you might get it right. what part is antidemocratic? the ID? lol colorado requires a photo ID to vote.
It is false. You're fucking lying. You haven't pointed out anything about CO voting that is more restrictive. Not one thing.

Of course, the truth is plainly obvious--that you are lying here--which is why you will never do the work here to try and support your obvious lie.

I’m gonna guess Golf could be next.

Nope. Masters in Augusta starts tomorrow and from the article itself:

"The PGA Tour has already said it won't be moving the season-ending Tour Championship from Atlanta this year, scheduled for September 2-5, saying it has a financial commitment to the charities and the local community. "
Now, if players started boycotting it, the PGA might start to change their tune. But players aren't going to boycott. At least not the big names.

But they wont boycott it. Certainly not the big names which is all that really matters. And I'd venture to believe that most the fans for that matter don't care.
I will be SHOCKED if the PGA takes any stance on this ever. They already copped out due to "financial commitment to the charities and the local community" so that tells you where their headspace is.

If Republicans don't want to be accused of Jim Crow lawmaking perhaps it would be a somewhat wise idea not to openly expound with the fucking IDENTICAL rhetoric that was used to justify Jim Crow era voting restrictions.

L. O. Fucking L.

Gave a quick read through the article - the author offers no data to support their position. Just vague feels. And never defines what a better voter actually is.

But legitimacy is not popularity and popularity is not consent. The entire notion of representative government assumes that the actual business of governing requires fewer decision-makers rather than more
And that's why our government is representative and not a direct democracy. But in doing so, those representatives should be representative of the population. GerrymanderingGerrymandering the hell out of districts to create a structural advantage is neither representative nor particularly legitimate (only in the strict legal sense).
A president that wins with 20% of the popular vote (because of the electoral college) is in no way representative or receiving consent of the voters at large.

Of course, ignoring in their entreaties for "higher quality voters" the fact that republican and conservative voters are demonstrably the least-informed, dumbest sacks of shit to ever punch a Chad.

But let's not.let that get in the way of a good political subterfuge.

Reading that was just... tragic. The outlet that's supposedly about liberty argues for a basic betrayal of democracy.

It's not even a decent argument. Williamson assumes that someone without a driver's license can't be sufficiently well-informed, and conveniently sidesteps deeper solutions: better political education in schools, and more responsible coverage of politics in the media. We don't need to shrink the voter base to get more informed voters.

how is Mitch going to keep getting paid if he tells the corpos to leave him?
Yep ... I guess this means that the GOP is willing to forego the donations they hope to receive, as the party of big business. Mitch’s message to corporations is “Just send us the money and then shut the fuck up and do as you’re told”. That will go over well. It’s specifically corporations critical of voting restrictions. Which is to say corporations that are concerned with voters rights and the like, which is to say corporations less-likely to support Republican interests. Even more specifically: Corporations that are concerned that a majority of their national and international customers might be concerned with voting rights.

They spent decades arguing that corporations are people and money equals speech. They are now trying to thread a bizarre needle wherein only corporate money is speech but corporate speech is unwelcome. I hope it blows up in their fucking faces. I’m sensing that Mitch just stepped on his dick with golf shoes on. Let’s see just how fast he back-tracks when the donations dry up.

Strange how the people calling for fewer voters by taking away voting rights are never willing to give up their own right to vote.

Republicans during the Obama years rallied support through obstruction and throwing red meat to the base. Then under Trump, they simply became the party of grievances and they inflamed that base to red-hot levels and a complete denial of any facts that are contrary to their ideology and world view. They’ve really put themselves into a position where now they are simply reacting to the demands of the angry mob, damn the consequences. The angry mob believes the Big Lie that the election was stolen and instead of standing up against the lies, they pass reactionary “election reform” legislation that pisses everyone outside of their angry mob off including their lifeblood - corporations. This is a party that is hopefully disintegrating before our eyes and it’s through their own craven pandering to the ignorant masses.

I just have to say it again, I can't believe how this has soooo upset republican politics and republican news outlets, like Fox. Fox, running this story 24/7. They are obsessed with business taking a stand on and within Georgia. I do believe we've hit their achilles heal, i.e. Fox, Mitch, republican after republican. And they thought voter suppression would be soooo easy, for them. HA, HA, HAHAHA. Now, I'd love to see iOwa republicans who also passed voter restrictions to pay a price with Amazon pulling their facilities out of iOwa, and Microsoft pull their servers out of iOwa, and Google to pull their facility out of iOwa. If that would happen, iOwa would be left with only ten people working actual jobs. Actual jobs, because making meth in ones garage is not an actual job.

Fox News has been shitting themselves all week complaining about the move. All of a sudden everyone on FOX is ultra concerned about how this will harm black owned businesses.
Sounds like a solid candidate for the "Lie of the Month" at Faux.
