"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

Quick - Call Now - Stop Disenfranchisement

These bastards on the Reich know that the only way that they can win elections is to disenfranchise as many voters as possible. They have been doing this the last six years and now they want to make it Federal Law.

The House of Representatives is currently debating HR 4844. It is a closed rule - meaning Dems cannot offer any amendments.

You can sign a petition against this here, but you also need to call your Rep right now.

1-888-355-3588

HR 4844 requires everyone to show photo ID and prove they are a citizen in order to vote in Federal Elections. Nothing to insure a paper trail. Nothing to have voting machines that are tamper proof. Nothing to allow voting machines that are auditable. Nothing to demand that our vote is not privatized.

These people will stop at nothing.

    This will effectively be a poll tax. It is not easy to prove citizenship - some people do not have birth certificates, some people do not have the ability to get to the courthouse, some people cannot afford a passport...it is endless. Really.
