Domestic Politics
« on: June 13, 2014, 04:08:38 pm »
You probably know somebody directly affected by this:

Yesterday, a group of Senate Republicans blocked a common-sense proposal to help Americans reduce the burden of student loan debt.

It's depressing -- student loan debt is spiraling out of control in our country, totaling nearly $1.2 trillion and surpassing both credit card and auto loan debt in size.

This bill simply would have allowed folks to refinance their loans at today's rates.

But there are 40 million Americans who need some relief -- add your name and fight for a fair way to reduce the burden of student loan debt:

Re: Domestic Politics Voter SUPPRESSION
« Reply #1 on: July 20, 2016, 05:56:38 pm »
Voter suppression is a strategy to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing people from exercising the right to vote. It is distinguished from political campaigning in that campaigning attempts to change likely voting behavior by changing the opinions of potential voters through persuasion and organization. Voter suppression instead attempts to reduce the number of voters who might vote against the candidate or proposition advocated by the suppressors.

The tactics of voter suppression can range from minor dirty tricks that make voting inconvenient, up to blatantly illegal activities that physically intimidate prospective voters to prevent them from casting ballots. Voter suppression could be particularly effective if a significant amount of voters are intimidated or disenfranchised.
