On July 1, 2011, a sweeping election law overhaul passed by the Legislature put new restrictions on groups that hold voter registration drives. Among the changes, groups were required to file new voter registration applications with election officials within 48 hours, instead of the old 10 days, or face a penalty.

Groups said the new rules made it impossible to comply. As a result, many got out of the registration game until a federal judge ruled in their favor at the end of May, 11 months later.

...

After the judge blocked enforcement of the third-party restrictions, some groups again began to organize registration drives. Not surprisingly, June and July registration numbers were the highest of the year.

It takes a real piece of shit to want to suppress the vote. Americans have died by the bucket load protecting freedom and the asshole traitor Republicans want to take that right away from millions of Americans. Worthless slime.

Funny that the new laws have not kept Republicans from registering.

You make a good point. If you died for freedom why should you be disenfranchised?:sneaky:

And the democrats want to give away all our rights to illegals who do not follow the due process to get into the country.

I do love it- neither of the OP's links have anything to do with dead voters, but he seems to think they do.

Democrats have traditionally been dependent on third party groups to register new voters, which is what the links reference, and what the now stymied Florida law attempted to curtail. The law placed impossible burdens on their efforts, causing them to refrain, which was as intended.

Scurrilous attempts to smear such groups are to be expected from Repubs, who have become truly desperate to win, at any cost.

Desperate is no fucking excuse for being a traitor. Had these legislators tried to do this at they time of the Revolution to white male property owners they would have been shot.

So your argument is that Democrat's are too stupid to register to vote by themselves :hmm:

You might have a point if his post actually had an argument. It merely contained a personal attack.
You're an idiot for thinking it matters. This isn't a formal deductive argument. Questioning the usefulness of the source is quite acceptable.

A stopped clock is right twice a day. Do I have to prove it is wrong at every point that I ignore it for the behavior to be supported?
The bare chance that it may be right doesn't make it useful.

Same goes for you. Your mind can't be trusted to output anything that isn't horribly skewed. This makes you worthless as source material. If any of your beliefs happen to be right it's going to take someone better than you to argue the point, since you sure as hell can't.
In the intellectual arena your presence is pointless.

1. You said that Democrats "consistently" try to not count military votes. You now mention a single incident from 12 years ago. That's not "consistent".

2. Your link goes to a Google search, not to any real sources even for that claim.

3. The incident in question involves accusations surrounding the contentions Florida recount. The Republicans claimed that the Democrats were trying to disenfranchise the military, but the Democrats said they were just trying to apply the rules consistently to all ballots. There's no reliable evidence that the Democrats were doing anything wrong.

Overall, it seems pretty clear that you have nothing to back up your claim other than your "consistent" hatred of Democrats.

You're a sad little human being. Deny deny deny.
