6321...Coming To A Stephen Harper Near You

Voter suppression.

The home of Andy Griffith, North Carolina, is leading the way.

Check this out from

On Monday, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed into law a massive voter suppression bill compiling numerous different provisions used to restrict voting in other states. Among other things, the bill includes a strict voter ID law, which will reduce turnout among minority, low-income and student voters. It will cut a full week of early voting, which is likely to depress turnout amonglow-income and African American voters. And it will prohibit certain kinds of voter registration drives, which tend to register low-income and minority voters.
Students, low-income voters and racial minorities, of course, tend to vote for Democrats. McCrory, and the lawmakers behind this bill, are Republicans.

You think it couldn't happen here?

Think again.
