The Boondocks by Aaron McGruder for April 08, 2012
TV: I'm George W. Bush, and I approve this message... Recently, urban youth have been receiving a lot of messages about voting. Some of it may be confusing... Is there reading involved? How do I work the voting machine? Am I legally allowed to vote if I'm a felon? Politics is very complicated, and if you're unsure about the issues or your voting status, you could be embarrassed, even arrested, if you try to vote. Man: But I'm on parole!! Bush: And depending on where you live, your vote may not even count! So before you get up and go all the way to the polls, ask yourself...is it really worth it? Man: No way, homie!! "Voting: It ain't worth it, homie"

Be careful about how and when you get registered… You don’t want to become a victim of voter fraud. Not the kind the Grand Ole Perverts want you to believe happens, or that James O’Thief makes up by leaving the facts on the cutting room floor. I’m talking about the real deal: the kind perpetrated by election officials of both parties (voter roll purges, faulty felon checks, misspelling your name deliberately, caging, throwing out provisional ballots,…). Check out some of Greg Palast’s investigative reporting on voter suppression, it’s disgusting.

They still try to kill the vote, end abortion, end contraception, pollute the air, water, cut taxes on the rich and cut spending on the neediest, ignore infrastructure, have affairs with inturns while damning homosexuality, the list goes on. can you say “hypocracy”? “traitor”? “greedy whores”?
