Horrible People, Version ∞



Disregarding the fundamental tenets of democracy as usual, and worried that their voter suppression laws might not be enough to steal the election (courts having declared most of them illegal, donchaknow), Rs are resorting (as usual, in every election of the last decades) to trickery. Assholes:

Some African American, Spanish-speaking and elderly voters in Florida and Virginia are apparently being targeted by anonymous voter-suppression groups trying to trick them or intimidate them into not voting in the November presidential election, according to election officials and voter protection organizations. 
The Virginia State Board of Elections is warning residents that "some Virginia voters, particularly older Virginians, are receiving phone calls from unidentified individuals informing voters that they can vote over the phone. This information is false."
Par for the course. Lying about or refusing to disclose their plans, voter suppression, destroying registration forms, coordinated disinformation, intimidation, trickery: if they didn't have that, we'd have been rid of them long since. The last thing they want in their version of America is democracy.

How does a person not hate these guys? I'm trying. I really am. If only they'd help me a little.
