Unless you're going to play the Sarah Palin victim card and blame others for taking your own words seriously, you wrote what you wrote.
My post: An overstatement, perhaps...but it's essentially true that Republicans want to make it harder for poor people and students to vote - ESPECIALLY in Florida.
Your response: People who don't have skin in the game shouldn't be allowed to vote.
Should I apologize to you for taking your words seriously? And please point to one mention of race on my part.
as a general matter, however, I think he is correct. a better filter than simply "age" is needed for the franchise, I think. but that is properly a state decision. Myself, I would support voters having to pass a test similar to the citizenship one (even just something basic; stuff like "name the three branches of government" and "who are you voting for").
if that is "anti-democratic", then I'm fine with that. because we aren't a democracy.

Please tell us exactly how her statement that Republicans "literally" want to drag us back to Jim Crow Laws.
You must show this in two parts.
1. That Republicans have "literally" attempted to enact legislation to segregate us and remove the right to vote from blacks.
2. Republicans "literally" are attempting to drag people.
