  •  The republicons know that they can't win a fair (6+ / 0-)

    election, so they try to game the system, and have been very sucessful at this strategy.  It got George W. Bush elected twice, to the bane of the United States of America.  It is very obvious to me that the republicon party has zero integrity, and an ideology that only works for the rich people.  Unfortunately, for us, and for them, there are a lot more poor people than rich people in this country, largely due to republicon policies like "free trade", that harm the many, and reward the few.  Logical thinking would be to lift the people at the bottom up a few notches, and perhaps get some legal votes.  But, the republicons won't do this, because their greed won't allow them to raise the minimum wage to a livable wage.  I hear one republicon politician after another preach that people should work hard to get ahead, and lift themselves out of poverty, but they have rigged the system against this sort of thing happening for the masses.  If you weren't born in a gated community, your chances of ever living in one are damned slim.
