3 people in one family, my family, experienced voting problems with machines and having their voter registration mysteriously show up about 300 miles away.
In the 2008 elections, i checked a straight Democratic ticket. When i was about to cast the ballot, it had changed to a straight Republican ticket. In 2012, my Nephew checked a straight Democratic ticket and when he was about to cast the ballot, his had changed to a straight Republican ticket. My niece found when she was preparing to vote, they had no registration for her in the city she resided. She researched and found her registration was about 300 miles away and close to the Mexican border.
I know these are only 3 incidents, but what are the odds this happened to 3 people in the same family in a state as large as Texas? How odd is it that in the election of 2008, most of the races Republicans won across the state, they won by margins almost identical? We can GOTV, agitate, protest, but what good is that, when these fake cowboys in Texas steal elections?
When The Democrats won the majority in 2008, i tried to relay my concerns to have the new majority change voting laws, investigate voting machines, but all of it fell on death ears. I feel something is suspicious about that, especially considering the 2000 and 2004 stolen elections when no one, including Democrats, not even Gore and Kerry, wanted to do anything about elections where their most loyal voting population, African Americans were screwed royally. No senator stood up in 2000 and only one (Senator Boxer) in 2004 and we had to beg for that. I heard nothing more about it and nothing got done. What's really happening here?
The Chicago machine of the early days, didn't have anything on these fake cowboys in Texas
But i may be too late. After the 2010 election, they gerrymandered the state and made republicans very safe. Then they wanted to make them even safer, when they tried to institute new ID laws, but DOJ shot it down. Two days ago, the supreme court voted against the Voting Rights Act. So now, they want have to cheat at the polls for a while.
The only good news about this, it may not be too late, because we now know there are a lot more of us than them. It's not even close as past election results showed. The numbers aren't legitimate. Texas cheating, Ohio cheating Florida cheated, etc etc. If all this cheating is going on, the numbers aren't legit!
Texas Repulicans are running the biggest (voting) scam in America's history. People need to flood Austin and then look around and see how many rightwingers are there. I bet they want be nearly as represented.
