By “rulings aimed at curbing voter participation,” Axelrod is referring to a ruling that allowed a Libertarian Party candidate who was in compliance with state constitutional requirements to get on the recall ballot.

Every time Democratic politicians and pundits whine about made-up “voter suppression” in the recall election, what they are really saying is that they support candidate suppression.

What’s that smell? Oh, it’s the smell of desperation.

      YEAH RIGHT AXLEGREASE, it was because of voter suppression your 2 FLEEBAGGING [email protected] lost in Colorado, YEAH RIGHT !! They lost because WE THE PEOPLE made sure you FLEEBAGGERS didn’t cheat like you usually do, does VOTER FRAUD ring a bell Axlegrease !!! VOTER FRAUD is what has kept President BOBO, the RAClST MUSLlM FLEEBAGGER in office the last 2 elections !!! Remember this people, there are over 3,000 counties in the U.S. & God only knows how many voting precincts in each county, you can see just how fast those FRAUDULENT VOTES could add up with that many voting precincts out there !!!

      Then there is the problem with the ballots we fill out at the voting precincts, these ballots can NOT be traced or tracked back to who filled them out, which means they are prime breeding ground for VOTER FRAUD that can’t be detected !!!! That is why you hear FLEEBAGGERS saying all the time THERE IS NO VOTING FRAUD, when the fact is it is rampant but can’t be detected !! It can be proven too, if we re-did the 2012 election over the next day but this time in front of voting officials & Photo ID would be required, we all would be saying President Romney right now !!!

      I say for the 2014 midterms we all get a receipt with our vote & this will serve 2 purposes, first we can make sure the voting machine casted the right vote, since we have been having problems with that the last decade too !! Second we would have proof of our vote & when the election is over we could find out if the actual votes casted for a canidate is the same as the government numbers, I BET THE NUMBERS FROM THE 2 WON’T JIVE WITH EACH OTHER !!!!!

      If the numbers don’t jive with each other it will prove that VOTER FRAUD is rampant out there & because the ballots can’t be traced back to the ones who filled them out it doesn’t get detected so the FLEEBAGGERS just say VOTER FRAUD is not real, YEAH RIGHT FLEEBAGGERS !!! Now you can see why the FLEEBAGGERS have been winning so much lately, VOTER FRAUD !!!! This is for AXLEGREASE too, letting VOTER FRAUD contiune because you FLEEBAGGERS fight Photo ID tooth & nail you are suppressing the LEGAL votes with VOTER FRAUD !!!!

    They have to keep up this voter suppression rhetoric until at least 2016. They fear Voter ID, the only thing that could stop them.

    • ObamaFail

      Democrats are terrified of fair elections where every registered voter only gets to vote once, and where the dead aren’t allowed to vote. That’s another reason Dems are pushing for amnesty for all of the criminals that are here illegally. They want those votes, and those votes will insure they can win even without voter fraud.

  • Jack Deth

    Axelrod, et al cannot get over the fact that Giron had her a$$ handed to her. On an issue that liberals think is a no brainer given. In a district that overwhelmingly went for Obama in the 2012 election.

    The facts of the matter are that democratic turnout in Giron’s own district were significantly higher than republicans. And she STILL got pantsed.

    Remember this.

    Election Rigging, George Soros and the Secretary of State Project

    This “project” worked beautifully in Minnesota, a state that elected Mark Ritchie- a radical who worked for ACORN and is on the steering committee of the Apollo Alliance (the far-left organization which wrote the Stimulus bill). Ritchie is the reason that Al Franken is a U.S. Senator. He allowed ACORN to do their dirty work, turned his head as felons voted in droves, created chaos through the absentee ballot system, and refused to push Voter ID in the state. Richie not only gave us Franken, he gave the Dems. the 60 votes needed to push through any bill they wanted, including the Health Care Law.

    We have George Soros to thank for socialized health care.

    .Here is more George Soros,
    Radical progressive billionaire George Soros has spent some $45 million in recent years on efforts to make sure voters have little or no say in which candidates become judges.”
    He’s spent $45 Million to influence our judiciary? Yup, that’s right. Soros has plugged the cash into left-wing action groups which are attempting to “remake the judiciary and fundamentally change the way judges are selected in the United States.” It seems that 39 states have some form of ballot judicial elections- which hold these judges accountable to the people. Soros wants to see a “merit” selection process instead, one in which there is a special panel that makes a list of judicial candidates from which the governor would choose to appoint.
    The power to elect judges would be transferred from the American people to this panel, a group of individuals who are not elected and who would be accountable to no one. Soros is working to rid all conservative leaning justices from consideration by getting individuals on these panels who represent left-of-center ideology such as members of trial lawyers associations and other legal elites.

    Control the special panel and you control the judiciary.

    The rationale of Soros’ plan is explained this way: The public is too stupid to make informed decisions about judges, therefore, using a “merit system” would ensure that judges who are appointed are qualified. Sandra Day O’Connor is a proponent of this “merit system”. She claims that voters are “too unsophisticated to evaluate judges”.

    Face it folks, the Left thinks of us as “Useful Idiots”.

    Hey, didn’t Lenin have useful idiots?

    Here is what the convicted felon George Soros said.
    “The Main Obstacle to a stable and just World Order is the United States.”

    If they want to see real voter suppression, they should look at Conservatives. Our votes are suppressed every time a dead person votes Democrat, or a Democrat voter votes multiple times, or an illegal immigrant gets to illegally vote. That’s real voter suppression. Our votes don’t count when our one vote is outweighed by a liberal voting 3 times in the same area, or when your one vote is outweighed by an illegal immigrant voting when they shouldn’t be allowed to because they are not citizens.

    That’s real voter suppression. Democrats are good at suppressing votes. And they are able to do it without even having to prevent any of us from voting.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      You post these accusations in every thread that’s at all vaguely election related, and I still honestly can’t tell if it’s because you actually believe them, or if you’re just desperately trying to de-legitimize results you don’t like. Or perhaps you’re trying to justify casting extra votes for republicans.

      • Casca

        And if several precincts had 140% of the voters voting 100% for Romney, you would have your panties in a wad…

      • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

        Or maybe Gary’s right. I seem to remember voter suppression in the 2000 election in Florida committed by…Leftists.

      • Jeff Coil

        The extra votes are being cast for the Democrats. That’s why you hate voter ID, which is used by EVERY DEMOCRATIC NATION IN THE WORLD. I would love to so some version of the “purple thumb” used in the US to stop multiple voting.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          Voter ID used everywhere in the world? That’s not even remotely close to being correct. Have you ever been to any other countries?

          I’d actually be on-board with the purple thumb thing though.

          • Jeff Coil

            Actually, I have been to other countries, though not as many as I want to get to before I die. Been to Asia, South America, Canada and the Caribbean. Haven’t gotten to Europe yet, and would love to see Australia.

            Perhaps I should have said “most” instead of “all”. My point is that when the UN “observers” were here last election, they were stunned that the US did not require ID to vote. Voting without an ID is an anomaly.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Australia, Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Hardly anomalies.

          • Jeff Coil

            Not according to the UN observers. I trust you’ll forgive me if I take their word over yours.

            Regardless, allowing someone to vote without proof of citizenship is a foolish thing for any nation to do. I would think that any person, no matter their political preferences, would have a vested interest in making sure the election process is not compromised by fraud. This makes me believe that those that oppose voter ID are opposed to the democratic process itself. Voter ID would make most forms of voter fraud very difficult or impossible to pull off. Its really just common sense.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Citing the UN on this site usually gets you screamed at.

            For all the talk about in person voter fraud, it’s just never really been found to exist in significant numbers.  We keep hearing about these mythical buses ferrying democrats from one polling place to the next, but for some reason nobody ever thinks to follow and photograph them.

            Do you really think that ID requirements went be used to disenfranchise voters?  Before you answer, remember that a non-trivial portion of the country have refused to believe that Barack Obama is a citizen and hopes to have him hounded out of office over it for years AFTER he released his birth certificate.  Anyone lacking his resources who doesn’t “look right” to officials in their area will be out of luck, as will anyone who’s primary documents are missing (it happens).

        • Bathing Suit Area

    Axelrod is a liar. The Secretary of State was trying to implement a new election law passed by …. Democrats.

    The lack of mail in ballots was because the law on recalls specified a different time frame for qualifying a candidate for replacing the recalled official than another provision in Colorado constitution. Libertarians sued for a longer time frame to qualify a candidate – and still failed. That resulted in a short period to print ballots.

    Axelrod is a brazen liar.
