    Why would that be necessary?

    How does your question change the reality of what actually did happen in Colorado?

    Real simple, I am frankly surprised you can't see it....If there were other methods to cast their vote, and they had the opportunity to vote, then NO ONE was suppressed.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    How many times do you have to be told something before you "get" it?? Did I claim you claimed that? Once NO! Twice NO!! Three times Hell NO!!!

    Pay attention: I'm asking you the question. This question: Is it your contention that 70% of voters in Colorado were prevented from voting? How freeking difficult is that???

    I think he knows that, which is why he's purposely dodging the question.

    Boomberg's group ,Mayors Against Illegal Guns CONTRIBUTED just under 3 million to the campaigns of NRA targeted candidates.
    The NRA,Alec and the Koch brothers BOUGHT media advertisements and never needed to reveal how many millions they spent. Estimates are that it may have been as much as 6 million.

    That, my friend is voter suppression.
    Now what part of that don't you have the ability to understand???

    Because of the nature of campaign finance laws the NRA the Kochs and ALEC do not need to reveal how much they spent on advertising campaigns against Morse and Giron.
    So no I do not have a hard number. Are you so naive as to think that the reported 550 thousand reported is all that was spent?
    These people have very deep pockets and the airwaves were saturated in the weeks leading up to the recall election with lies and smears about both candidates.
    BTW my ass is not stinging ... the Democratic party remains in the majorities of the Colorado House and Senate...the Governor is a Democrat and the saner gun laws they passed and signed remain un-altered and enforced.
    The NRA victory here was largely symbolic and hollow.
    They changed nothing in my state.

    Voting becoming much harder for the intellectually challenged is not the same as voter suppression.
