GOP ~ ALEC Behind Voter Suppression in 34 States | ALEC | American Legislative Exchange Council | "I don't want everybody to vote ... our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down." --Paul Weyrich, ALEC founder
Turns out the Texas Secretary of State mandated that all former names be listed on voter registration cards. To get it changed, women must go through extra step of returning the card and asking for re-issuance. No voter suppression here.
Republicans DON't hate big government. They LOVE wasteful spending for wars abroad, the surveillance state, prisons, the drug war, subsidies to oil and coal, subsidies to big agriculture, bailouts for the banks, tax spending to benefit the rich, and anything to do with women's bodies.
