How Republicans steal elections

In Texas a license to carry a concealed handgun is accepted as ID for voting but a student ID is not. Despite massive hysteria about "phantom" voter fraud Republican controlled state legislatures have been conducting an all out assault voting eligibility.

There is still a huge segment of Republicans who believe Acorn stole the last election for Obama despite winning the popular vote by over nine and a half million.

Texas, Maine,Kansas, Wisconsin, South Carolina and Tennessee have already passed laws this year restricting voting access.

As EJ Dionne writes:

An attack on the right to vote is underway across the country through laws designed to make it more difficult to cast a ballot. If this were happening in an emerging democracy, we’d condemn it as election-rigging. But it’s happening here, so there’s barely a whimper.
