“Court Strikes Down GOP-Backed Voting Restrictions In North Carolina”

GoodOleWoody's Blog and Website

HUFFINGTON POST

WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court on Wednesday ordered a lower court to block two new voting restrictions in North Carolina, saying there was “no doubt” the measures would disenfranchise minorities.

North Carolina will now be required to reinstate same-day voter registration, as well as allow voters to cast ballots even if they show up to vote in the wrong precinct.

In a two-to-one ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit ruled that “whether the number is thirty or thirty-thousand, surely some North Carolina minority voters will be disproportionately adversely affected in the upcoming election” and that it was important to act now, since “there could be no do-over and no redress” once the election was over.

‘As it turns out, the “Republican people” in the ad are nothing more than stock photos that you can find on the IStockPhoto website. Seriously’.

‘The conservative creator of the ad was either too lazy to actually go find real Republican people to include in the video’.

If You Don’t Vote – Why It IS The Stupid Party – ‘Blood Moons, Hillary As The ‘Antichrist,’ Etc. – Meet The New GOP’

Washington State for the most part, has stayed out of the shallow end of the gene pool when it comes to sending tea baggers to Congress.

Fear not. We are about to make a big splash with Clint Didier coming from the 4th District.

didier

‘Clint Didier :

‘Candidate who bashes U.S. aid got thousands in subsidies for farm’

“Didier himself has cashed in on one big government aid program. He has received nearly $273,000 in federal farm subsidies since 1995.”(1)

And when it was publicized and after HE’D gotten HIS OUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS?

Clint Didlier :

“I say we get the government completely out of the market,” he said. “Let’s get rid of the farm bill. Let’s get rid of all of it.”

——————————————

‘The truly big money backing these über-conservative candidates wants to put a total stop to progress in Washington’.

‘In fact, they want Washington out of the picture altogether, so Americans, out of frustration, will happily agree to pay the price of privatization’.

‘Just when you though the Republican party couldn’t get more insane than Steve King, Louie Gohmert, Ted Cruz and the outgoing Michele Bachmann, a new batch comes along’ :

‘In Wisconsin, there’s Republican Glenn Grothman, whose greatest hits include trying to eliminate days off’,

‘Saying poor people don’t act poor enough’,

‘Saying Planned Parenthood is targeting Asian-Americans‘,

‘Saying sex ed is turning kids gay, and the list goes on’.

‘North Carolina has Republican Mark Walker, who was posted on Facebook that he “had the privilege of spending an hour with an African-American male who grew up in the inner city.”

‘Republican Ryan Zinke of Montana, a former Navy SEAL team member, called Hillary Clinton “the real enemy” and the antichrist’.

Colorado has Republican Ken Buck who as a prosecutor, told a rape victim that “a jury could very well conclude that this is a case of buyer’s remorse.”

‘Georgia’s House candidate is Republican Jody Hice, a Baptist radio preacher. He has called evolution a lie “from the pit of hell,” and he believes that women in politics is just fine if it’s within the “authority of her husband.”
