There is no such thing as a Republican party anymore. It's a total misnomer for what is in fact the American Fascist party.
I just heard on MSNBC from Rachel Maddow that even though the courts had disallowed the Pennsylvania photo voter ID law, official Pennsylvania state websites still published the draconian rules that struck down law mandated until she and MSNBC called them on it and forced them to change what their website was stating. They were still trying to intimidate non-republican voters into not exercising their constitutional rights.
I don't care who likes my saying it. The Republican party ceased to exist a long time ago and has been replaced by a theocratic fascist party which has comandeered the name "Republican." Their stock in trade is lies, obfuscation and strong arm oppression.
Romney and Ryan are the fuhrers of that party and just as dedicated to the big lie and oppression as any European fascist ever was.
