    This meme is so ludicrous. How do you explain the 2010 election results where the districts were those based on the 2000 census. Eliminating gerrymandering of districts would cause many progressive heads to literally explode because it's why so many are elected...

    All in all, maybe not a bad outcome. I wonder if they go "pop", or just go "flut".

    Sometimes bad things need a dagger into their hearts.

    No, but never pass up an opportunity for a little hysteria to keep the troops in line.

    apparently the only hope for progressives is to allow rampant cheating at the polls. the progressive cause is so weak, something as simple as requiring citizen checks completely crushes their efforts, so they have to fight tooth and nail to prevent it.

    It is ridiculous to think this hurts minority voters.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    I imagine homeless voters would be effected by much larger numbers then any other demographic, but that alone does not warrant allowing a system that is powerless to prevent fraud from occurring.

    Homeless voters are hurt by their circumstance. How would you even know what precinct to let them vote in?

    John Lewis is not just a congressman, he was a civil rights leader at the forefront of supporting voting rights. He had skull smashed by a policeman while trying to cross Edmund pettis bridge in Selma Alabama on Bloody Sunday.
    Isn't this the same lieing, racebaiting asshole that LIED about being called a nigger by a group of Tea Partier
