Voting by mail too complex for the democrat.

Why is that? Do Democrats have less access to a post office then a Republican does? And if so please state the proof of such a claim.

Let's take a moment to clarify terms here: "Democratic voters" rather than "Republican voters" turn out less, as in the recent recall elections in Colorado for two State Senators.

I tend to see the terms "Democrats" and "Republicans" as more descriptive of persons who have contributed to political causes, attended party convention or cauci, etc. These activist types always turn out.

One of my great heroes was former Congressman Jack Brooks of the 9th District of Texas. I recall remarks Brooks made at a 1990 Labor Day breakfast at which he described a gas station attendant who ran up to Brooks and pumped his hand with a vigorous handshake to thank him for getting his mother's veteran's benefits straightened out. Brooks noted people like that young man often turned out to be unlikely voters and our job as campaign workers was to turn 'em out.

Republicans are privileged members of society and motivated to continue their privileged status. Those who lack privileges - the hungry, tired, broken, marginal, etc.- often must be coaxed to vote.

Therefore Democrats have sought to make it easy to vote and Republicans have sought to make it harder.

This is not empirical evidence but I'm sure you can find some with your little clicker there.

As to your indignantly stated question there I do not have a logicsal answer. You sound like the fellow who was convinced the lunch ladies at his high school cafeteria could all have become nuclear physicists if only they had chosen to do so.

The fact that you think all Republican's are "privileged members of society" and that all Democrat's are "those who lack privileges" pretty much makes the rest of your opinion nothing more than talking points for a progressive liberal agenda....as in not even close to fact based. So please tell me, as an Independent, what category would I be in? Am I privileged but not at a high enough degree to be a Republican or am I hungry, tired, and broken. Just not as much as a Democrat?
And last but not least.....do you realize how comical your assumptions of R's and D's really is?

This just proves the mind of kangaroo is fogged by the dope he uses. His eyes have to be brown, he is so full of crap. Saying the Republicans want to make it harder for the Dumacrats to vote. They are the entitled ones expecting government handouts to maintain the lifestyle they have come accustomed to.

Your post lacks clarity. In every election one must choose as our Founding Father John Dickinson wisely noted whether to accept that we are oppressed when we are or buy into the illusion that because some are rich we can be rich if we just do what the motivational posters say. You have to stand for something or you'll fall for anything.

Decrying politicians is just a rhetorical exercise. Politicians are tools.

This is what's best known as lying out your ass. Republican efforts to suppress the votes of minorities, women, and college students are well-documented. It is the Republicans who stand for handouts, to the leisure class for which they are the errand boys.

It is mindboggling that republicans would try to make it harder for Democrats to vote, but they have been caught on camera admitting their tactics are aimed at that very outcome. When they sit back and see that a higher percentage of Democrats take advantage of early voting, then get rid of early voting - it doesn't take a genius to figure that one out, it has nothing to do with the illusive voter fraud.
And as far as entitlements - ummm --- sorry but you seem to be on the wrong side of the facts on that one too. It is no secret and well documented that the red states have the higher percentages of welfare recipients. Democrats do not expect handouts, and the evidence shows more republicans take them than democrats. fortunately for all Americans we still have a Democratic party that cares about their fellow Americans, regardless of their political persuasion.

I think NPR had a good analysis of the Colorado snafu (link below). One thing they really didn't get into, and it's something that may have been brought up here before, is that the gun enthusiasts are just naturally better organized. It's impossible for them not to be!
They go to their hunting clubs... their shooting ranges... their gun shows... their gun shops... all these places where gun enthusiasts naturally collect and connect... and the political activists and organizers show up with their fliers and speeches and buttons and stickers.
So... where do, say, the "gun control enthusiasts" meet? The Gun Control Club? The Gun Control Show? The Not-Shooting-Today Range? The best that organizers on that side of the argument can do is try to set up a table in front of someplace like Target and hope that you hit enough people coming in the door, or leverage enough people through Meetup.com or someplace like that.
It's the difference between throwing a line in the water with a single hook and some bait on it... and dragging a big net through a school of fish that naturally swims together. Like it or not, the gun enthusiasts will always have that advantage when it comes to organizing. The best the rest of us can do is hope that some of them wake up and start educating each other on the dangers of swimming with sharks like Wayne LaPierre.

Read a little history once in a while and try to get some "learning" before making such ridiculous claims. It might just help your credibility. Otherwise you are just coming across as a blabbling idiot!!!

And try proving your claim of any one trying to suppress the votes of minorities or anyone else. You post that crap all the time and yet you NEVER show any proof of it, I have to assume because there is no proof. So where is this "well-documented" evidence?

Wow. Took you seven whole days to come up with six words? And since you didn't take any of the original post to task in any sort of meaningful or factual way... one can only presume that your mental fuel tank is running on empty, as usual.

You either have a very short-term memory or have not expanded your news gathering beyond Fox news -
Here's just a few comments by the right:

"The reduction in the number of days allowed for early voting is particularly important because early voting plays a major role in Obama’s ground game. The Democrats carried most states that allow many days of early voting, and Obama’s national field director admitted, shortly before last year’s election, that “early voting is giving us a solid lead in the battleground states that will decide this election.”

Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai told a gathering of Republicans that their voter identification law would “allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania.”

After the election, former Florida GOP chairman Jim Greer told The Palm Beach Post that the explicit goal of the state’s voter-ID law was Democratic suppression.“The Republican Party, the strategists, the consultants, they firmly believe that early voting is bad for Republican Party candidates,” Greer told the Post.“It’s done for one reason and one reason only ...‘We’ve got to cut down on early voting because early voting is not good for us,’” he said. Indeed, the Florida Republican Party imposed a host of policies, from longer ballots to fewer precincts in minority areas, meant to discourage voting.
