Michael Moore in Denver on why the GOP champions vote suppression
There is only one reason right-wing politicians around the country–including Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler–are introducing bills and otherwise taking steps to reduce the number of people who vote, filmmaker Michael Moore told a standing room only crowd at the University of Colorado at Denver today, and that is because “this is a liberal country.
“If these people thought this was a conservative country, they would want to put voting booths in every Wal Mart,” he said. “They would want more people to vote.”
Further, he said you can tell it is a liberal country because Rush Limbaugh and most of the talking heads at Fox are angry. If this was a conservative country, he said, they would host nice, happy shows. “They know the country has left them behind,” he said.
As evidence of the country’s liberalness, he said a majority of Americans think same-sex marriage should be legal, 72 percent want taxes on the wealthiest Americans raised, and 60 percent want the war in Afghanistan to end now.
