      and "while he may not be a household name, he was the architect of much of the infrastructure of today's right wing. In 1980, Weyrich said, "I don't want everyone to vote. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down."

      If you want to understand where today's voter suppression came from, look to Weyrich, the Birch society and their pals. Listen to him here:

        exactly how to take over the country is chilling.

        Because ALEC, who he had a hand in founding, and the right wing media, is doing EXACTLY what the paper said.
