2. Do you believe space aliens were behind the JFK assasination?

 

Let's stop with the conspiracy theories, please.

3. Is the DNC making a strong, principled effort to get all wannabe Democratic voters to the polls?

To make voting easy?
On a day when most people have time to vote?
And the results correctly and accurately and publically counted up?
Regardless of the people's choice?

Heck no.

7. Well fuck, we have a vast industry that spends billions on controlling election outcomes?

And then they want us to believe it is all on the up and up, and they really do care about what we think should be done. It's just bad luck that the place is run like a flophouse and we can't seem to govern ourselves without boatloads of corruption, and nobody with smarts and integrity wants anything to do with politics. It's our fault, see?

12. They haven't even made a credible effort

 

to register voters for the primary. Just asinine.

4. Define "suppressed."

 

Also, there is a difference between "acted to" and "actually did."

I believe their role has been odious.

9. Nearly certain.

 

Suppressed furthermore is a general term meaning "caused there to be less." In that sense, DNC has worked hard to keep voter interest and turnout low. Challenges to party hegemony are a threat, losing elections is not. And it's a long-running strategy, an utter disaster for years before the present campaign that has seen the more popular of the two parties end up in the minority in Congress and state legislatures and losing statehouse after statehouse.

10. You are making a mistake

when you single out the DNC or when you single out the repub party as cheaters. It is the established powers both repub and dem who benefit from and are committing the election fraud.

11. Hell Yes. It absolutely defies suspension of disbelief.

 

First it was the debate mess so that Hillary wouldn't talk too much and derail her own campaign.

Then we had places running out of ballots for crying out loud. What nonsense is that? They have to roles at the polling place, they know how many voters there are. Have R ballots and D ballots for everybody on the roles. It's hardly rocket science.

Then the limiting of polling places. Maricopa county, with 4+ million people had 60 places to vote.

Bullhorn Bill blocking the polling places in two locations in Mass.

Polling disasters of significant magnitude in nearly every state that has voted. Flipped registrations. Voter suppression.

Anybody that can smirk about this because it benefits their candidate, doesn't give a damn about our country. This is Soviet Union type crap. How can you have fair representation when there is conscience, demonstrable manipulation of who gets to vote? You can't.

13. Absolutely.

Closing registration to change a party affiliation 6 months before the election is definitely keeping people from voting.

17. Nope, I refuse to be sold out to a corporation

 

Hillary's polls would be sponsored by the highest bidder though.

18. No. The Republicans were responsible in AZ and NY and our caucus system was the major

factor everywhere else. Nothing suppresses votes as much as a caucus does.
