Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 05, 2018

Republicans in North Carolina are attempting to push through a bill that would ensure their control over voting procedure in election years.



Alternate links: Google News | Twitter

The Republicans claim that this is totally fair since each year one of the parties will control the election process and then the next year the other party would get control for a year. They say that the Democrats will be allowed to control the elections held in odd-numbered years while the Republicans would control them in even-numbered years. What could be more fair? Except that elections ONLY occur in EVEN-numbered years.

If we had a fair SC this would go there and would be just thrown in the toilet where it belongs but we don't, we have a bunch of Republican political hacks on the SC, that part of our government is so corrupt that the corruption is destroying democracy at all levels of government. And it is the right wing members of that court who are knowingly and intenionally allowing it to happen because deep down they don't believe in democracy. To allow the "rabble" to govern themselves is unthinkable to them.

This is getting beyond farcical. I never thought I'd contemplate moving down to South Carolina (it's less than 10 miles away from my office) to get away from ridiculous republican politics but it's looking like a better idea every day.

according to the National Review cartoon on loop in my head, Imaginary OBAMACLINTON did the exact same thing

Wow - that's some serious BS happening in NC. Shouldn't be surprised though the way they passed laws to strip the Governors power once they lost. Oh wait isn't Wisconsin and Michigan doing that right now? Why yes they are... Seriously GOP motto "If you can't win, just cheat."

The GOP are scum. They don't have a redeeming quality about them.

A real sweet 50/50 deal.

Its been long suspected that Republicans destroy ballots and there is every reason to believe that is exactly how Hillary squeaked out a victory in Iowa. In this case the destruction appears to have been so sloppy he is going to get caught. This is very unusual.

Democrats and Republicans have public and secret power sharing agreements which include dumping the league of women voters, which used to sponsor national debates, and locks out third parties. Its important to limit talking points and detailed debate contracts do just that.

Because he hates himself.

You have to learn to love yourself before you can give your love to others.

Republicans have stopped pretending they don't cheat to win.

Now. They're embracing it.

And openly making it law.

Whoever said "cheaters never prosper", hadn't met the current crop of republicans.

People who "cheaters never prosper" prospered by cheating, and they don't want competition.

And some are well-intentioned, honest, sincere Useful Idiots... for prosperous cheaters.

Can you imagine if Democrats did this?

Boaz would have lit up this thread with 20 posts about armed insurrection.

No worries Boazo.

That's like Oscar the Grouch telling everyone to stay away from his garbage can.

Or Nulli the Fidian yelling at the imaginary Caravan of Doom to stay off his lawn.

Boaz was willing to go risk his life to spread democracy in Afghanistan but doesn't want anything to do with it in North Carolina.

He didn't go to spread democracy, he want so he could fulfill his lifelong dream of murdering brown people and being called a hero instead of a racist.
