    Exactly -- which is precisely why they were recalled.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Excuse for Colorado: ‘Voter Suppression, Pure and Simple’ | TheBlaze.com


    I can assure curly sue there that most progressives probably had no idea what was going on - I bet a lot probably don't even know what a recall is or what the issue was about.... This is what you get when you cant offer someone a free Obama phone to vote - they tend to lose interest and this is just proof of that. Of course there are many more reasons why the tyrants were overwhelmingly booted but I'm sure we will get around to those other reasons in this tread sooner or later.
    You nailed it. Ballots are supposed to be mailed to all the voters, but they were not for this election. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was correct, this was voter suppression pure and simple.


    How Aberrant Voting Rules May Have Just Handed A Big Victory To The NRA | ThinkProgress




    Two Colorado State Senate Democrats were recalled Tuesday, driven in large part by gun rights supporters angry over new ammunition limits past in March. With unusually low turnout — and a razor-thin final margin in one of the districts — the irregular rules used for the recall elections may have made the difference in one or both races.

    More than 71 percent of registered Colorado voters participated in the November 2012 election — the third highest turnout rate in the nation. Much of that owed to Colorado’s vote-by-mail option, which has been available for the past several elections. Indeed, as much as 70 percent of Colorado’s votes were cast by mail-in-ballots in recent elections. A new state voting rights expansion, enacted in May, further updated state law to create automatic mail-in balloting for all voters.

    Despite this new law, the abbreviated calendar for the recall ultimately prevented clerks from automatically mailing out ballots in time to comply with constitutional time requirements. Rather than vote in the normal way or at a local precinct, citizens were required to show up at their choice of a few at-large polling locations established by the counties. The judicial wrangling over the mechanics of the recall dragged on through much of August and many voters were reportedly confused about where and when to vote.



    The result was a massive drop-off in turnout.

    ThinkProgress and their desperation aside, what we have here is a recall election where those most concerned were able to cast ballots ... and won.
    While those who either didn't care enough to vote or didn't care enough to learn how to vote didn't ... and lost.

    I'm sorry, but I have watched this woman time after time over the last several years, publicly lie her ass off and attack anyone and everyone who doesn't do, say, or believe what she wants them to. She does this all in the name of party politics to achieve political power for democrats and advance the progressive movement. Even when she's caught on camera lying and attacking people, she not only never apologizes or shows any remorse, she turns right around and uses the same lies to attack the same people 10 minutes later.

    She's a disgrace and an embarrassment to America... Which probably explains why Obama and the democrats love her so much.

    however the USA has a republican form of government article 4 section 4 of the u.s. constitution

    this is the only guarantee in the constitution--- " The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence"

    what is republican government....it is a mixed constitution.....federalist 40...separations of powers

    So those 'reportedly confused' voters were, once again, Democrats.
