We knew it would happen, of course. It's the last rotten tactic in the Republicans arsenal of smears, lies and deceptions. Targeted voters -- likely Democratic voters -- are being harasssed and intimidated to keep them from the polls. It's the lowest form of politicking and the Republicans thrive on it.
Please read this article on MSNBC for an idea of what they're trying to pull.
Is there no shame for these folks? We all realize that if the Republicans can't win an election fairly, they will go into cheat mode. They did it during the last two Presidential elections, and it worked. They're doing it now. Republicans hate early voting -- it favors Democrats -- and so they are out in swarms trying to suppress any votes that won't go to them. This will continue until the last hour on Election Day. If they can kill your vote for Obama, they're going to try to.
Please, if you or anyone you know has been approached by ANYONE trying to discourage, scare, or keep you in any way away from voting, you MUST report it and get HELP!!
Hang up on the robocalls. Delete the scurrilous emails. Slam the door in the face of any of these tricksters if they come to your house. And REPORT THEM!!!
Best resource is a call to ELECTION PROTECTION: YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE -- 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683). (En Espanol, 1-888-839-8682). You might also give a call to the CNN VoterHotline, but only after reporting it to someone who can do something useful -- 877-GO-CNN-08. CNN has a map of the voter irregularities being reported to them. You should take a look here. But remember, they are just a media outlet. They won't help you. You must call Election Protection.
These Republican operatives will say anything to keep you away from the polls. They are lying to you, and they want to steal your vote. Real pro-American, eh? Doesn't smell like patriotism to me. Smells like desperation and a decayed vision of democracy. STOP THEM!!!
YOU MUST FIGHT BACK!
GO! INFORM YOURSELF!!! HELP OTHERS TO VOTE!!! STAND UP TO THE INTIMIDATION!!! HELP ELECT BARACK OBAMA!!! BE STRONG!!! VOTE!!!
