The Republicans are busy tampering with the voting process again. I have no clue why people weren't in the streets after the last presidential election and ABSOLUTELY no effing clue why they think another election is going to turn things around.
Just one thing they are doing is using foreclosure data to deny voting rights to people who have lost their houses in the current mortgage crisis. They have a full bag of tricks including intimidation of people going to vote, purging voter rolls, throwing away any ballots they declare unreadable, and demanding particular identification proof on the spot that wasn't specified ahead of time.
Donetta Davidson, secretary of state of Colorado, removed the names of one out of five voters in that state. George Bush then made her head of the Election Assistance Commission.
These are exactly the same things they have been doing since the Gore-Bush race, and probably before. Look elsewhere for democracy.
