Opinions and musings on religion, philosophy, science, politics, and life from a conservative Catholic neurosurgeon.
As Paul Eeyrich, founder of the Heritage foundation, said years ago,"I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of the people. They never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down”This has been a bedrock principle of the Republican Party for years, culminating in the current crop of voter ID laws.-KW
Republicans have been the party of voting rights for 170 years. The 1965 voting rights act passed with a much higher percentage of republicans than democrats. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voting_Rights_Act)The struggle for voting rights has been waged by republicans against democrats.A partisan of the party of jim crow, segregation and the kkk is lecturing a partisan of the party of lincoln about voting rights.lol.Democrats are the party of voter fraud, which is different from voting rights.
and Weyrich's statement is offensive, and I condemn it.
