Voter Fraud Literally Less Likely Than Being Hit By Lightning | Mother Jones

Speaking of voter fraud………

For years now the GOP has been obsessed with voter fraud……every time they lose an election they cry voter fraud…..and now that they control so many states they are trying desperately to rig the election process in their favor……but really…..just how rampant is voter fraud?

Glad you asked!

GOP And Pathetic Politics

It is bad enough that we have a political party in this country, a country that is proud of its freedoms and rights, that has No issues on which to run…the best they can do is a non-existent voter fraud, abortion and marriage equality…..the GOP has No idea how to make people’s lives better or how to jump start a lagging economy or for that matter any relevant issues at all…….

They have spent a couple of years re-drawing districts so that their candidates can pick their votes and a desperate run to limit who can vote….all in the name of preventing voter fraud, which is NOT a problem by a long shot……but now Kansas illustrates just how far the GOP will go to win an election.

It appears that if you are a candidate in Kansas and have low polling numbers and you ant to drop out of the race…..you cannot………

This much is clear: Republican Pat Roberts of Kansas hopes to keep his Senate seat in the midterm elections this year. After that, things get fuzzy. Heading into this week, Roberts faced a strong challenge from independent candidate Greg Orman and a lesser one from Democratic candidate Chad Taylor. Yesterday, Taylor declared that he was dropping out of the race, a move seen as bad news for Roberts because polls show him losing a one-on-one matchup with Orman. Taylor didn’t explain his withdrawal, but the speculation is that Democrats asked him to step down to increase the chances that Roberts (and thus the GOP) would lose the seat.

Today, however, Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach declared that Taylor must remain in the race, reports the Kansas City Star. He cites a technicality, saying that Taylor filled out his paperwork incorrectly by failing to declare that he would be “incapable” of serving, as state law specifies. (Taylor can’t simply resubmit, because yesterday was the deadline to withdraw.) Democrats say Kobach, who has endorsed Roberts, is playing politics with the move, though it’s unclear whether the party or Taylor will file a formal legal challenge. “This could well end up in court, and I don’t have a good sense for how the courts would rule on this question,” an election-law expert tells the newspaper. Given the stakes, this is no small matter, points out Politico. “The decision could undermine efforts to unseat Roberts and potentially rewrite the narrative of the 2014 midterms.”

I bet you thought that the GOP was all about people making choices and taking responsibility, right?  Well not in Kansas……to try and win an election they will force a candidate to run even though he does not want to…..is that the America all you moronic Righties keep going on about?  Sounds more like something that you would be forced to do under the Soviet style of government…….

Sorry, you guys are PATHETIC!

It’s A Bird, It’s A Plane, It’s A ‘War Hawk’

Today I will say something that I will not ever repeat again.  For once I agree with Rand Paul!

Listen closely and you can hear many of my readers grabbing their chests and falling to the ground in disbelief.  There is not much that I would ever agree with Paul, either Daddy or son, about for any reason.

Recently during an interview rand Paul called Hillary a ‘war hawk’…….

Calling Hillary Rodham Clinton “a war hawk,” Sen. Rand Paul says that if the former secretary of state seeks the presidency, some voters will worry that she will get the U.S. involved in another Mideast war.

Paul is a leading anti-interventionist in the GOP and is considering running for president. Last year he opposed President Barack Obama’s call for military action in Syria.

“I think that’s what scares the Democrats the most, is that in a general election, were I to run, there’s gonna be a lot of independents and even some Democrats who say, ‘You know what? We are tired of war,'” Paul said. “We’re worried that Hillary Clinton will get us involved in another Middle Eastern war, because she’s so gung-ho.”

I know this post will not win me many new fans but….I agree with Paul on this one.  She was a staunch supporter of the policy that got us in Iraq in 2003 even though she tried to worm her way out of that vote….she is still a war hawk.

Paul is setting up the narrative so that he can attract those in the anti-war movement…….and the best way to do that is put the most likely Dem candidate, Hillary in the box of pro-war.  Paul is just getting the jump on his competition for the 2016 election.

Florida Replaces Gerrymandered Congressional Maps With Nearly Identical Gerrymandered Maps | ThinkProgress

Ever have one of those days where the chaos around you keeps you from focusing?  That is my day!

Today I am pressing articles that I have found and well I am too lazy to turn them into a post (honesty)…..there has been a wealth of accusations of the different GOP organizations that are trying to pick their voters and gerrymandering has been one of the tools used to gain unfair advantage at the polls……

Florida was recently told to redraw their maps….and this is what they came up with in their attempt….

And the courts in Florida accepted the re-draw…….go figure.

This Will Be Our Life Under President Cruz Blue Nation Review

Back in 2008 I thought Sarah Palin was a joke and that has not really changed much in 6 years……and then a Senator named Cruz shows up in Washington and the jokes just got worse……

I saw this piece on Twitter and just had to press it for my readers……I cannot think of anything that could be worse than a Cruz presidency…..

Nate Silver: GOP Has 60 Percent Chance Of Winning The Senate

You want to ruin your lunch?  try this one on for size.

Nate Silver is one sharp political geek….his stats and calculations are usually dead on…..he was so accurate in the 2012 election that most media outlets did not want him on to talk……he would blow holes all in their “expert” analysis.

I like him!

But liberals will be praying heavily that he is mistaken…..but his track record to date is pretty impressive…..

Whatcha think?
