  •  For every college student who is disenfranchised (1+ / 0-)

    The GOP General Assembly and the governor might have bitten off more than they can chew on this one.  For every college student who is disenfranchised by this law, there are 2 parents.  1+2=3.  Every student who is turned away from or is unable to get to the polls will remember why and which party did it.  For every older individual who is unable to afford the documents needed to get the "free" ID now required...there are offspring who will remember why and which party did it.  Every person who stands in line for hours to vote because early voting days and precincts have been curtailed will remember why and which party did it.  If their memories falter, it is our responsibility to remind them repeatedly. It might take an election cycle or two, but gerrymandering and cheating will not forestall the coming backlash against these radical Republicans.  I always thought a vibrant opposition party was good for the state and the nation...I just didn't realize until now that the Republicans had lost their minds while they wandered in the wilderness.
