NYT-Saturday, March 15, 20114 Editorial:    Ohio Mistrusts Democracy

Ohio Republicans must not think their political candidates can win a fair fight against Democrats. They’ve decided to rig the state’s election system in their favor, deliberately making voting harder for people who tend to vote Democratic, particularly minorities and the poor.

After years of debate and litigation on this issue, Ohio lawmakers know full well that there is no history of electoral fraud in the state and no pattern of abuse by any voters or groups. The sole reason for a series of recently passed bills is that Ohio is a perennial swing state, and Republicans want to give themselves every possible advantage in sending party members to Congress later this year, and putting electoral votes in the Republican column in the 2016 presidential election.

Scott Walker Threatens Special Session To Restore Voter Suppression Law If It Is Struck By Courts

On top of Voter Suppression,Democrats have a tendency to NOT SHOW UP AT THE POLLS DURING MIDTERM ELECTIONS.

David Plouffe:  

“We have a turnout issue,” Plouffe said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” airing this weekend. “This is a screaming siren that the same problems that afflicted us” in 2010 when Democrats lost control of the House “could face us again.”

    How Democrats can fight and win in 2014
    by LOLGOP on MARCH 15, 2014

    New rule: If you don’t volunteer to help a campaign, you can’t complain

    After Democrat Alex Sink failed to win a Republican seat that has been held for decades, analysts — including respected analysts like Charlie Cook — have revised their prognosis for 2014. They now see a Republican wave coming — or, in the very least, a “really bad year.”

    President Obama’s former campaign manager calls Sink’s loss “a screaming siren,” which is good because now is when such a siren can make a difference and save some seats.

    Two HUGE things need to happen for Democrats to prevent loses in 2014 that will result in a Republican Party more steadfastly committed to the twin goals of obstruction and sabotage:

    1. Democratic candidates need to fight wisely
    2. Democratic voters need to start volunteering now to make sure the base shows up in November

    Proof that GOP has absolutely no intentions of changing their tune. They can switch a few words around in a sentence, but the dogwhistling and fucked up policies that hurt Americans remains.

    Blaming Democrats for Paul Ryan’s ignorance and racist remarks, yeah, how’s that for the party of SELF-RESPONSIBILITY?
