"Election Day in Canada - The Rise of Voter Suppression" opens on the route Stephen Harper walked to work less than 24 hours after the CPC election win on May 2, 2011. He never walks to work but on this day the re-elected Prime Minister of Canada, who 36 days earlier fell on contempt of Parliament, revels in his first "majority" government. In less than 2 weeks Elections Canada investigators will be on the ground in Guelph, Ontario investigating a voter suppression scheme that will result in a national outcry, spark court actions, shake the country's confidence in its electoral system, and government.
This film examines the history and dramatic rise of voter suppression in Canada beginning in 2006 and how Elections Canada was blindsided from the CPC government's "Accountability Act" to the first record of "robocalls" during the 2008 Federal election. Other red flags in the lead up to 2011 were the 2010 Vaughan byelection, followed by the 41st General Election, the aftermath, Council of Canadians court trials, the Michael Sona trial and the scrapped "robocalls" investigation. RackNine, Matt Meier, claims of ignorance from candidates and the "Fair Elections Act" figures in as the film moves through the timeline and travels from Prince Edward Island to Whitehorse.

We are always hearing in the news about voter fraud and voter suppression. Tonight I will discuss these issues. The Federal Court just declared Texas Voter ID requirement non constitutional. I say the Federal Court is now non constitutional.

I’m flying solo today to launch a periodic series of discussions on American conservatism. I call it The Conservatism Series and today I will focus on the intersection of conservatism and Black voter suppression. It’s a preview of sorts for my upcoming book on the topic. I’ll check in periodically to discuss some of the themes that emerge from my research on the topic over the last two years.
I want to start by simply offering the reasons behind the book and how I define conservatism. I hope this will be an interactive conversation, so I encourage you to reach out to me with your questions and comments. You can find me on Twitter @MKFauntroy and on Facebook at Michael K. Fauntroy. Send me a question or comment and I’ll respond in the next edition of the conservatism series.
American Vernacular takes on the issue of voter suppression and how this seems destined to become the new civil rights battle of the 21st century. How can a nation that has proliferated war around the world inthe name of democracy deny any of its citizens the right to vote in fair and free elections? It's time to ask the question. AV announces the launch of Sisters Of Action, a grassroots organization established to get urban women registered to vote.

I am about fed up with this whole voter suppression bullcrap! Asking adults for a photo-ID is NOT, I repeat, is NOT suppressing ANYONE'S ability to vote!
The United States has a long, rich history of voter suppression dating back all the way to 1776, the year to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Once signed, existing restriction on voting rights that limited the right to vote to white, male property owners while barring Catholic, Jews and Quakers. The Voting Rights Act signed into law by Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965 has been essentially rendered ineffective due to the Supreme Court's majority decision in Clinton v. Holder (2013) and open season on voting rights has begun in earnest.

Good Morning and welcome to the Seriouside of the jril show. This morning, we will be discussing the following topics:
1ST SEGMENT: Are police officers above the law?
2ND SEGMENT: Voter suppression-why is this allowed in the US and is this a modern version of the POLE TAX?
3RD SEGMENT: What a difference a week makes! Are republicans regret the Romney/Ryan ticket?
On Thursday, August 30, Mittens (Romney) accepts the GOP nomination to be their candidate for president. I am covering BOTH conventions, and will be covering some of the "highlights" and rebuttals on this show.
But first things first - I am going to go over what you need to REGISTER to VOTE in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin - how many days BEFORE the election you must be registered - and what you will need to bring to the polls when voting.
It's scary out there, folks. Voter Fraud is virtually non-existent - it is a fake concern, made-up by the repubs who are racists, bigots, in the pockets of big business and big money such as the Koch Brothers, and their ilk.
Voter Suppression is real, and if we don't get the proper documentation in time, if we don't get ourselves registered and get off our duffs to vote because the repubs have made it "too hard," then we are playing right into their hands. We are fulfilling their objectives.
Let's NOT do that. Let's do ALL we can to insure victory for the Democrats - from President Obama at the top of the ticket, to the US Senator representing your state, to your district's Congressperson, your states' governors, local state house representatives, and right on down the ballot to the last Democratic candidate for any office. Let's insure victory on Tuesday, November 6, 2012 for the Democrats. For the United States of America.
I hope you will join me.
