Vote Rid Wrap Up for 2012

Hey Republicans. When you take all that power the public gave you in 2010 and use it for only two things: abortion laws and voter ID laws, here's what to expect.

1, Theres a good chance the crap you are passing is illegal.

2. When you pass these things, you basically piss off women and minorities. In some cases, you piss off enough people that they want to do things like start voter registration drives.

3. When you elect people that told folks they'd be fighting for jobs and instead focus on abortion, there's a good chance said elected person or candidate is going to be kind of nutty on the subject and say stupid things, which in turn aids point number 2 in motivating women and minorities to vote.

In our case this year, you all shot yourselves in the foot completely, because not only were you unsuccessful overall in enacting your new laws to suppress votes, just passing them increased turnout against you. And even though you may have had some luck with the less early voting hours/way too long lines at the polls thing, well, our President made a point to help fix THAT item as well.

So in the end. although I really have been harping about this for a long time. it's great to know that the results of your efforts were not even needed and I look forward to more of the same as you convince yourselves once again that you need to nominate a REAL conservative next time and for sure you'll win!

    • I do think Kpassagnon is an interesting prospect that needs to be in the right situation to thrive. It just so happens that we have one of the best 6'7" defensive ends in the history of the NFL on a reunion tour with us in 2017 and maybe if need be, 2018 if he holds up.   Kpassagnon's attitude and work ethic is strong and tireless. His 3-cone and vert scare me for a defensive end, and that's not something you can teach. Being able to bend and explode off the snap to beat OL is not something that Peppers can show him, but maybe Peppers can show how to use athleticism to his advantage.  I can see him being just another Michael Johnson/Erik Armstead player or I could also see the environment here in Carolina benefiting him and he becomes a Carlos Dunlap kind of lanky DE that causes headaches along our DL. Kpassagnon's spider web looks amazing and awful all at the same time. I'd take him in this draft, but "where" is the big question. 
    • Essentially the same repeal bill as before.
