Well, I guess you can't lose an election if you don't have any.

Seriously, taking away people's right to vote--that is some messed up garbage right there.

Walker is a Koch Brothers puppet. Disempowering voters is one of their favorite tactics. They are funneling dark money to state politicians here in Arizona too. With the goal of cementing power within a paid for state legislature that can ignore the public.  Just one example :

Arizona leaders say they (not you) should decide who can run for the U.S. Senate

Not content with simply shutting you out when it comes to knowing who is trying to buy elections, now Arizona’s leaders are hoping to shut you out when it comes to who you can vote for.

A committee of the Arizona Legislature this week approved a bill that would strip citizens of the power to nominate candidates for the U.S. Senate. Instead, the power would go to …

The Arizona Legislature.

No kidding.

Yeah, it's why it's hard for me to condemn dems. I mean, yeah, like in the Frank-Dodd they are being stupid and greedy---but compared to the Republicans they're saints! At least they seem to have a moral compass and lines they won't cross.

Also just read this.

Please let him win--and Mitch McConnell get mauled by a jaguar. I'd prefer the second, honestly...but I'll take what I can get. :)

Nasty, as it eliminates the ability to nominate independent candidates. I doubt the voters will pass it. If they do, a court would likely find it unconstitutional.
