On Critical Discourse last week, we reviewed the potential impact on the voters, of the push by governors of a number of states, to require I.D.s in order to register to vote.

In fact, the NAACP is sponsoring a rally in NYC, to decry what they see as a long-term attempt by the right-wing, to disenfranchise black people, youth, Native Americans, working women and immigrants. In fact, here's an excerpt from the promotional e-mail:

Let's hear what you've got to say. Come prepared with energy and facts.
