dtownral says "A" is me, but I assure you it is not.

Posts like that make me feel like I need to clarify this.

Is there a way using ip addresses or something that I can prove this once and for all? I dont want to be confused with that sack of shit for one second.

If the nearly non-existent in-person voter fraud is so rampant that we need a voter ID law, then what do we do about the absentee voter fraud, which has been shown to be rife (compared to in-person) with fraud? Oh yeh, that's right. No need to reform absentee voting... and I wonder why... I guess it's just coincidence that the majority of the voter suppression tactics in the bill concentrate on methods used by more (D)s; and those used by more (R)s were pretty much left intact. Fancy that.

Governor McCrory agrees. Overreaching federal government.

I'm sure all three of our Attorney's General will represent NC just fine!

If the General Assembly's voting restrictions forcing students to vote in their hometowns were in place in 2001 instead of 2016, this is what would Raleigh and the rest of the Triangle look like today:

For starters, Paul Coble would have had more than 588 votes to avoid a runoff in the mayoral race--and progressives would have regarded moderate Republican candidate Joel Cornette as the Triangle's version of Ralph Nader. A year later, Coble would have then toppled Eric Reeves in the 2002 Senate District 16 race, overcoming Libertarian Jason Mara's alleged spoiler role.

John Odom would have garnered enough votes to be Raleigh's mayor pro tem in '01--therefore, he becomes mayor when Coble becomes State Senator Coble. As far as Raleigh goes, it wouldn't have gotten the praises it does today in our timeline because the focus would still have been on the north part of town--with a bone thrown in for Southeast Raleigh. Even though Fayetteville Street reopened in 2006, downtown is only a little less bland because there's no additional effort to revitalize the central city (the convention center never moves because the push is blocked by Odom and never brought up again). Odom steps down in 2005, ending 12 years of conservative rule.

Raleigh rejects Richard Florida's ideas on attracting the creative class (Durham adopts them instead). Due to deadlocked 4-4 city councils and the recession, the City of Oaks plays catch up and gives up, focusing on the sprawling northern and southeastern parts. Young people who don't have an interest in politics or sports look to Durham and Orange Counties upon graduation.

The real action would have been about 30 miles to the northwest as Durham fully embraces the creative class concept. This article(http://tinyurl.com/m5ah7dq) would have been justified in 2009—only thing is, the author is Bob Geary and the publication is Independent Weekly rather than Bernie Reeves and Metro Magazine respectively.

It's also worth pointing out that then-NC State student Zack Medford (aka zacktm) would have been forced to run for an at-large seat in 2003 rather than the District D seat due to these restrictions on where students can vote (finishes at the bottom—behind two candidates who dropped out of the race after the deadline to do so).

Quote :
"Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) was among the most vocal proponents of the state’s new voter ID law, which requires all voters to present valid identification at the polls.

But when Abbott showed up to vote, there was a problem: although he is registered to vote as Greg Abbott, his driver’s license identifies him as Gregory Wayne Abbott. Thus, under the law he staunchly defended, he would be unable to vote.

Thankfully for Abbott and others in similar cases, he was still able to cast his ballot thanks to a provision added by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. According to Davis’ amendment, voters whose names are similar on their voter registration and ID card may still vote if they sign an affidavit confirming their true identity."


Quote :
"Abbott fought against this provision when Davis introduced it; now, he needed it to vote.

Davis herself was forced to sign an affidavit at her polling place because her name appears as Wendy Russell Davis on her driver’s license.

Judge Sandra Watts also had difficulty voting because she uses both her married and maiden names She went public, expressing fear that women would now be alienated from Texas elections."

in a single day the number of people unable to vote because of ID issues exceeded the number of actual individual voter fraud.

america, still #1 at basing laws and policy on statistically insignificant actions and faux outrage!

^yeah, its really unfortunate how the headlines are going to read until an actual investigation is carried out. When we find out that only a few of these cases are legit (and don't get me wrong, they should be prosecuted) it will be too late to back track for the low-information folks who've already read "MASSIVE FRAUD OMG."

I'm also hoping the vast majority of this is related to absentee voting. It seems like that would be the easiest way to vote in two states, however, the "voter integrity" bill they passed didn't touch absentee voting. It deserves the same scrutiny, if not more, than in-person voting.

Never understood why conservatives get so fucking upset about shit in the middle east. Hell let Russia deal with Syria. If they take out some none ISIL targets as well as ISIL targets then fuck it. At least they are taking care of the terrorists part which should be our main concern. Sure we'd like Asad out but i'm tired of our tax payer money spent playing world police and to ensure our favorite dictator is running all these 3rd world shit holes.
