Only those segments that do not have a right to vote in the first place, because:

1. They are not U.S. citizens
2. They are not residents of that state
3. They are being punished for committing violent crimes
4. They are dead
5. They are fictitious, or
6. They are voting multiple times in the same election

If none of those frauds are indeed being committed, why all the screaming about implementing measures to prevent them? Why the big push to nationalize election fraud with H.R. 1?

You heard it here first: According to Imaginos, people who can't afford to wait in line for some time before they can cast their ballots are not US Citizens.

Wow. What sort of an idiot does it take to post something that stupid? The sheer density of stupid in such a short post is almost impressive, in a witless sort of way.

Does the Left drive those idiots barking mad, or were they drawn to the Left because they were already batshit crazy?

Well, he just responded in kind to your stupid post because all those things you mentioned are already in the voter-laws.

Seems you don't actually have read any of the bills that have been introduced, and especially the one Kemp signed the other day.

Anyway, you just confirmed that you rather attack people than actually informing yourself and being right, which makes you what?

Only matching you, dear.

After all, every single thing you list there is already covered by existing legislation and is actually being prosecuted as a crime; Despite people like you protesting that these are very definitely real problems that are very definitely being used by people who aren't GOP voters to influence elections, there is a marked lack of actual evidence for fraud on a large enough scale to seriously affect elections against the GOP to be found.

There are, however, numerous instances of GOP supporters perpetrating fraud - Usually on trivial scales.

The actual problems are things like:
* Running elections on workdays, something actual democracies aren't doing because making it harder for people to vote is a bad idea
* Closing voting locations in rural areas, something actual democracies aren't doing because making it harder for people to vote is a bad idea
* Legislation to make handing people waiting in line to cast their vote water illegal, because real voters don't need to drink apparently?
* A bipartisan history of gerrymandering that significantly alters the value of a given vote

I could go on. These are all things that, as far as american conservatives are concerned, are good things, despite them doing nothing at all to combat the things you are so upset about.


In other words, welcome back, Imaginos. I see you are still thinking that me being snarky means I have nothing real to back up my snark.

So on the topic of conservative priorities, seems NRCC have been scamming people out of money.

Last week the NY Times had an incredible article about how the Trump campaign tricked donors into giving way more money than they meant to, using so-called "dark patterns" (i.e., tricky UI design and wording) that got many people to think they were donating one time, but instead accidentally signed up to contribute the same amount every month. The Trump campaign ended up having to return an astounding $122 million of the money it raised in refunds, much of it due to these tricks.

Isn’t karma wonderful? :D
A con-man is caught out, and forced to make restitution to his victims! You have to wonder how many of them still thinks he’s the “Great White Hope”. :P
Even though on another site some of his most fierce proponents are trying to make the victims the fall guys; in that they should have read the donation site more closely!
Maybe DT can use some variation of this in the form letter that will accompany his refund; that he was trying to teach them a “life-lesson”. :roll:

Looking from a distance (as usual), my current impression is that the "american conservative priorities", have now reduced to simply keeping their taxpayer paid jobs in Congress and the Senate.
No grand crusades, no ethical stands, total disregard to long established lines in the sand, and no real agendas.
All that is important is keeping the Trump machine on side, so he will anoint you, and his multitudes will vote for you.
I suspect that this may all come unstuck, if the many legal problems do come up to bite Trump. I know that the rusted ons will believe that the swamp got him, and he will be incarcerated unfairly, but eventually enough of them must start to wonder, if just maybe he is a crook.
