The Rev. Al Sharpton is a hit as host of MSNBC’s PoliticsNation? And I’m hooked people and must be tuned in daily for my 6:00 PM hourly dose (6-7 PM), as the Rev. diss the dirt on the republican’s tactics against President Barack Obama and their goal to destroy a struggling economy.
What’s scary is, Rev. Al Sharpton is revealing truths when he report how the republicans have big money plans to oust Barack Obama in the 2012 election., even rigging certain states with new voting laws where Obama won big in 2008.
That’s right y’all, Jim Crow will be alive and well in 2012.
This new voter ID law being initiated in 14 states, could cause five million Americans to lose their right to vote.
TheGrio–A new study from the New York University Law School’s Brennan Center shows that 5 million people could lose the their right to vote as a result of new voter suppression laws.
New voter ID laws in 14 states could make it significantly harder for more than five million eligible voters to cast ballots in 2012, according to the first comprehensive study of the laws’ impact, produced by the Brennan Center for Justice at the NYU School of Law.
Widespread voting cutbacks could have a significant electoral impact in next year’s election with minorities, poor and young voters most likely to be affected, the study found.
One of the new voting law requirements is to have a photo ID. For the elderly who seek to have a photo ID they’re being told to provide their marriage license and birth certificates when most of these elderly people were born in the early 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, when obtaining a birth certificate and/or marriage license at this stage of the game; might be a bit challenging to request in time for the election.
The motivating factor here is to discourage people from voting. But these are just a few issues being addressed on PoliticsNation daily, tune in and check out Al Sharpton as you’ve never seen him before.
If you watch the show you’ll stay informed!!!!!!!!!!
