    I'm reading a lot of comments about last night's speech that say something like "I thought I would never see this, Obama addressed for the first time voter suppression... this is a day in history I will never forget, God bless you Obama!" Can someone clue me into what they are talking about? Who's votes are being suppressed?

    The Dems think it is voter suppression if they cant go to someones house, give them a check and a ballot already market straight ticket Democrat or if any one insists that dead people cant vote any more.

    When liberals talk about voter suppression they're usually talking about illegals.

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    My thought is he was referring to getting more people on the public dole out to vote because of their general voting tendencies.............

    Might be referring to Florida. We cut early voting days and the liberals complained the lines were too long and people didn't get to vote. Which is BS, because Florida allows absentee voting with no restrictions. You can get your ballot in the mail weeks ahead of election day and fill it out at your leisure.

    Another reason it's pure BS. States like Pennsylvania have NO early voting and you must give a good reason why you want to absentee vote.

    Be nice to make Election Day (or two consecutive days if necessary) national holidays and eliminate all early voting.

    Voter ID requirements.
    No early voting.
    Not allowing the local DNC branch to pick up winos, give them booze and take them to the voting place, telling them how to vote.
    Not allowing felons to vote.
    Allowing self defense shootings that deplete the Dem's voting bloc

    Little things that are suppressing the heck out of the voting public.
