my wife was removed from the roll

in tn. she went to our precinct and they told her the precincts had be redrawn so she would bhave to go to another church a few blocks away. when she went there she wasn't on that roll either but i was. they6 suggested that she was in the previous district because some streets were split. but she maintained that i was on the list from our address surely they wouldnt split a house. she insisted she was registered. had voted all last elections etc.

i think someone had her purged.

now get this. she talked her way in to voting. not provisional but regular ballot put in the same box as everyone else.

she is not on list and she voted.

white priv?

school with the lady in charge and they all know us. I don't think they would turn us away from voting. I would show them my military ID card, drivers license and my registration card and if I wasn't I that list I'd cause a scene and demand my right to vote. Sure do think with all my evidence they would say no.

I will turn into a toad.

My BIL was stopped for driving under the influence for the 3rd time. It was ambien but still. Did the cop arrest him? No. He gave him a ride home! White privilege? Ya think?

in 2008. I pitched an unholy fit because I'd voted just a couple of months earlier in a local runoff. After a flurry of phone calls downtown and some very red faces, I got my ballot and it was a real one.

My own guess is that I was voter caged by the Republicans. Likely your wife was, too.

I hate what that party has become: an interstate racket dedicated to the destruction of the American system of government.
