The GOP War On Voting Is In Full Swing 
“Registering [the poor] to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals.  It is profoundly antisocial and un-American to empower the nonproductive segments of the population to destroy the country — which is precisely why Barack Obama zealously supports registering welfare recipients to vote. […] Encouraging those who burden society to participate in elections isn’t about helping the poor.  It’s about helping the poor to help themselves to others’ money.” -Conservative columnist Matthew Vadum
————
John Stossel (Fox News): “Let’s stop saying everyone should vote.”
Rush Limbaugh: “If people cannot even feed and clothe themselves, should they be allowed to vote?”
Judson Phillips (Tea Party Nation): “If you’re not a property owner, I’m sorry, but property owners have a little bit more of a vested stake in the community than not property owners do.”

Tea Partiers cheer the deaths of the uninsured. This is after they cheered executions and booed Ron Paul for his claim that not all Muslims are responsible for 9/11.

If this doesn’t show the true character of the Tea Party, nothing will.

Statistically, You Have a Better Chance of Being Executed by Rick Perry Than Dying in an Airplane Crash

paxamericana:

OK, maybe not you — you may well live in a state other than Texas. And if you do live in the Lone Star State but you’re white, that’ll also decrease your odds of taking the needle. But in terms of overall population, Texans are more likely to have their execution order signed by Rick Perry than they are to die in an airplane crash.

…Right there, in the fine print of (Standard & Poor’s U.S. credit rating) downgrade release, they said that a big factor was that, quote, ‘the majority of Republicans in Congress continue to resist any measure that would raise revenues,’ unquote. And they give an example of how to fix that: quote, ‘initiatives, such as the lapsing of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts for high earners,’ unquote. In other words, S&P would like to see higher taxes on rich people.

Folks, whatever you think of Standard & Poor’s, when a Wall Street firm run by rich people recommend higher taxes on rich people, they might just know what they’re talking about.
