Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The Republicans' quest for a permanent political majority culminated in mammoth voter suppression in 2016. The 2018 midterm election promises both to embolden these efforts and energize resistance.

Unnerved by progressive voting policies and by the numbers of black, Latino, and young voters streaming into the electorate, Republican state lawmakers across the country have moved to suppress the franchise to maintain GOP political dominance. The strategy is simple: Turn voting into a bureaucratic nightmare by eliminating popular timesavers such as same-day registration and early voting. Require photo identification to vote, using IDs that many people don't have or cannot pay for. The harder it is to vote, especially for people juggling some combination of work, classes, and child or elder care, the fewer people will.

Please show how it directly affected the election, or go back to your safe place, squeeze your Play Doh, and memorize some more talking points, junior.

As has been stated numerous times. it really doesn't matter if Russian hacking affected the election. What matters are the traitors who don't care the hacking took place.

If the hacking did in fact affect the election in some way after all, that makes people like you effective traitors.

Because it was a dangerous, violative, and aggressive act on my country and what used to be yours.

No need to pretend to be quite this stupid. Just apply for Russian citizenship, already. I'm sure they'll move you to the head of the line.

Many have cried for America.

Zed is just a bit ahead of the curve.

You will too someday, if you stick around long enough.
