What influences one to vote for a Democrat?

GIMMEDATS....who want or need something....vote....

"Tip number three: Make sure you have health coverage. You are only one accident or illness away from financial disaster if you don't have health insurance. I know you feel invincible in your 20s, but without coverage, you could rack up tens of thousands of dollars in medical expenses."

It does not say catastrophic.

Its talking about being responsible & not gambling on your financial well being.

The Framers never envisioned illegal immigration or an over-bloated Federal government so that fraud and abuse would be so easy.

We all want a fair election, don't we? You wouldn't want to win knowing it wasn't a legitimate win, would you?

I'm asking the wrong person these questions, aren't I?

Her claim to fame was short lived

Strange how Abortion Barbie got so much MSM attention as a state legislator.

While....

But when Yee(D CA state senator) who is running for CA Sec of State and a big anti-gun proponent gets arrested for gun-running there is crickets from the MSM

When MSM was contacted via their twitter accounts for why not. This was their tweet back

"We don't cover state senators"

Doesn't matter if it was spent they want it back. Seems there could be some way for them to inform the voter registration of your demise.
yes. try telling people in this nation that the feds are going to get involved in their state's election process.

good luck with that!

Oh My: Audit Finds Evidence of Widespread Voter Fraud in North Carolina
According to this audit by the North Carolina Elections Oversight Committee, at least 81 dead people have been voting from the grave, and more than 35,000 people with matching full names and dates of birth voted in both North Carolina and another state in the 2012 general election.
To put that number in context, Barack Obama carried North Carolina by fewer than 15,000 votes in 2008.

This is precisely what the Framers never envisioned. A party so desperate for power they would do anything to make the Federal government so obese it could never catch up to all their fraud and abuse.

Time to put a cork in it and require an ID to vote. Simple solution. Perhaps too simple and too effective. Why democrats are freaking out.

How the GOP Sold Out Middle America for Corporate America

At the Cold War’s end, the GOP reached a fork in the road. The determination of Middle Americans to preserve the country they grew up in, suddenly collided with the profit motive of Corporate America. The Fortune 500 wanted to close factories in the USA and ship production abroad—where unions did not exist, regulations were light, taxes were low, and wages were a fraction of what they were here in America. Corporate America was going global and wanted to be rid of its American work force, the best paid on earth, and replace it with cheap foreign labor. While manufacturing sought to move production abroad, hotels, motels, bars, restaurants, farms, and construction companies that could not move abroad also wanted to replace their expensive American workers.

Thanks to the Republican Party, Corporate America got it all.

Texas is not the only state having difficulty with the law......

and the law has no enforcement provisions except to withhold some federal funding, generally far less than the cost of implementing the law.....

Galt believes that this issue is not on the radar screen of the voters who will punish the DemoKKKrats in November for screwing them with ObamaKKKare....

US has a 60 percent voter turnout...

80 percent of high income earners vote...

Self-identified 'middle class' radically shrinks under Obama
The “fundamental transformation” President Obama promised us is well underway. The largely self-reliant, proud, and prosperous American middle class is shrinking, and the dependent, subsidized, and generally envious lower middle class and lower class has expanded dramatically since 2008.

Another dishonest right whiner POS blaming Obama for the effects of the Bush recession.

Nevermind George Soros and the unions funding the democrats and their liberal causes. The Koch Brothers' contributions pale in comparison.

Harry Reid and the democrats won't bring that up.
