What is Voter Suppression

What is Voter Suppression
David Schlecht

You won’t hear much about this in the regular news channels but the Republican party is funding programs in multiple states to prevent legitimate voters from voting.

You may be wondering why this could possibly be. It makes sense seeing the facts, but it’s hard to believe that any American political party would want to disenfranchise voters.

But, it is a fact, the Republican party is spending money in multiple states to do just that.


The Republican operative, Paul Wayrich, laid it out in black and white back in the 80s and the Republican party has been following the plan ever since. Here’s what the Republican strategist had to say:

I don’t want everyone to vote. Quite candidly, our leverage in the elections go up as the voting populous goes down.

Well, face it, considering how the Republican party has been trying to accomplish this for the past 30 years, this should come as no surprise to anyone.
