According to the Texas secretary of state's office, 10 amendments were up for vote in 2011, an average of about 672,874 Texans voted. 9 amendments went up for vote in 2013, after the supposed “Voter Suppression Laws”, the average number of votes cast in 2013 was 1,099,670. In terms of raw votes, turnout in 2013 increased by about 63%. But what about the poor poor minority groups that predominately vote Democrat you say? (whine whine , boo hoo sniffle sniffle , violin playing gently in the background). Hidalgo County sits on the Texas-Mexico border and is 90% Hispanic. In 2011, an average of just over 4,000 voted in the constitutional amendment election. In 2013, an average of over 16,000 voted. If voter ID was intended to suppress votes, it is failing as spectacularly as HealthCare.gov.

What voter suppression are you talking about? Do you mean voter identification laws? Is that what you're calling suppression? You're joking? Right?

From a purely semantical point of view, eliminating voter fraud DOES suppress the vote, no?

I suggest you take your butt to the nearest Dem headquarters and get involved if that is what you think will turn the tide.

I vote for the most progressive electable candidates that support the 99% I have been to HUNDREDS of OWS meetings and many MOVEON and many anti-war demos & civil rights demos - not one Democratic Party meeting
but what relevance is that ?

in stead of ranting against me, why dont you tell us why you are in favor of voting supression?

"I vote for the most progressive electable candidates that support the 99%"

That sounds like a euphemistic way of saying, 'I vote Democratic.'

You don't really think that they support the 99%, do you?!.... Well do you?

For a person who supposedly attended so many Occupy events, you seem to have very little idea of what Occupy is about.
