Last week we were unable to get to the topic of Voter Suppression.   This week we are going to give it another try.

It seems that the GOP methodology of winning elections is that if you can't win on merit, cheat.  Voter suppression, in the name of voter roll integrity seems to have take hold of the good ole United States. 

In 2011 alone, 180 bills were brought before the Legislator's of 43 States which proposed laws that would suppress the vote of the marginalized, the elderly, the poor and the young.  It is not voter fraud that is rampant, but it is the introduction of various laws to suppress votes that surprisingly target Democratic voters.
