Right Wingers hate democracy -

North Carolina election officials chipping away at student vote.

The objective of the new voting laws in North Carolina are clear.

They are designed to place obstacles in the path of citizens who traditionally vote Democratic—African Americans, students, the poor—to slice a percentage of them off the final tallies.

Unlike their predecessors who did all in their considerable power under Jim Crow to keep nearly everyone in a certain category from voting, the latter-day suppressors know that, in many election contests, knocking off a few percentage points is all that is needed for victory.

College students are one of the targets for this assault on voting rights. Efforts to curb student voting started in 1971 when 18-year-olds first got the right to vote and has continued ever since even though, for 34 years, students have, thanks to the federal appeals court decision in Symm v. U.S. had the right to vote in the communities where they attend school.

North Carolina isn't alone among the states that have played various the angles to get around this.

Among the methods has been the official spread of false information and scare tactics to keep students from the polls.

Under the new state law passed in the wake of the Supreme Court's gutting of a key portion of the Voting Rights Act, officials in North Carolina are now moving to undermine the student vote.

For instance, the Watauga County election board has decided to eliminate an election precinct and early voting site on the campus of Appalachian State University.

The board in Pasquotank County has nixed a student at Elizabeth City State University from running for city council.

The Republican chairman of the Forsyth County Board of Elections will try to eliminate the Anderson Center at the historically black Winston-Salem State University as a site for early voting.[...]
Fueling Raymond’s concerns, he said, are comments that he heard as an elections precinct judge in 2010.

Nice try.

That's why the state decided that,
Government Issued Student Photo I.D.s,
aren't Government Issued Photos I.D.s,
for voting purposes.

Some of us Real Americans are unhappy when our fellow Americans are denied the right to vote.

But, you see.. We don't hate Democracy.

The really good thing is that not as many whackos are here as you would think. The same 6 posting over and over and over again night and day using many different names. Probably trying to see the keyboard to do the one finger boogie by the light of FNC on the tube type TV. Whackos this whacky are normally at the lower end of the economic scale, or in words they use commonly dirt poor.
There seems to be THREE left wing lunatics and perhaps six(sometimes more) conservatives. Occasionally, CN(left wing lunatic) will post, but you referred to those who post a lot. I am wondering what makes you SO SURE that the conservatives are changing names????? What proof do you have of that? Maybe there is only ONE left wing lunatic. Perhaps THAT person is using other names. See how that works, Dahlonega?. Really, you should think before you post.

No, you chose the phraseology "infiltrated the entertainment industry", where I pointed out that infiltration, like subversion, of our culture are terms steeped in hyperbolic fear designed to elicit a Pavlovic response.
Did the Soviets have spys in our government, yep.
Did the Soviets use the Communist Party of America as a front group, yep.
Was every member of the CPA a spy, nope, in fact the vast majority were not.
Did the Soviets try to influence our culture, probably, but so what. That's the chance you take in a free society where different ideas social and political compete.
Have you shown, time and time again, that you feel the Left is subverting what YOU think America should be, yep, but so what, it's just your opinion.
That is my opinion, too. It SHOULD be yours, but you left wing lunatics are h*ll bent on driving our country further down.
You NEVER answered the question I asked you NUMEROUS times. You didn't want to hurt your buddie's feelings. He made a bottom feeding traitorous statement and I guess EVEN YOU draw the line somewhere.

The way I see it- it is about even! Omte can't vote so he don't count, When can't afford the poll tax(no food stamps accepted), and Bigdave is too damn stupid to pass a poll test!

If that's the way you see it, you had better get your eyes checked. Except for OMTE, if Obama can get elected counting the votes of dead people, I think WHEN and BIGDAVE are waaaaaaay ahead of the game.
