Voters -- Who Needs Them?
What is it that people here have against voting? I'm thinking about the item I saw here yesterday about the Dallas City Council clamping down on campaign signs.
Right, we need to do everything we can to contain this voting thing. Fewer signs. Voter photo ID laws. Anything we can do to cut down the size of the mobs rushing to the polls to vote.
In Wisconsin, 71 percent of registered voters go to the polls and vote. In Minnesota it's 75 percent.
We have 11 percent, and we're going for a lower number? It's like everybody's campaign strategy here is to see if he can keep the other guy's voters from leaving home on election day.
How about concentrating on getting your own damn guys to go vote for you?
All this legacy of aversion to voters is rooted in a bad history of racism, fear of poor white people and fear of Latinos. It's just amazing to me how much of it is still around.
I wish the candidates would cover the entire city with their signs. The test for getting to vote should be, "Hey, howya doin?"
If people don't like it, if they can't stand voters, they should go live in Syria. But hurry. People over there are catching the fever, too.
