How much more plain must I make this for you?

I don't read any GOP conspiracy into this.  And, I certainly don't feel 
threatened by an opinion.  I feel threatened by an intent to deceive, 
and ongoing attempts to grant such deception total control over our 
society and government.

When you make a statement as multiply absurd as this:

| I think there's a endemic concern for voter fraud.

...you reveal yourself as uninformed (about ~actual~ voter fraud).  Or, 
if you ~are~ informed, then deceptive (about what ~you~ truly "think").  
Or, some despicable and selective melange of both failures, exploiting a 
self-imposed "concern" manufactured and fertilized to provide plausible 
denial to a range of liars in the GOP.

Only uninformed people would accept such a claim about voter fraud.

Among informed people, only GOP lackeys would defend the notion that you 
~do~ think what you ~claim~ to "think."  (And even then, they don't 
~believe~ you think it; they simply realize "Oh, I gotta defend Greg's 
assertion as valid, because it's conservative dogma and we need it to 
beat the [name hated social entity here].")

Either alternative is deeply disturbing.  And both are beneath you.

That policy -- of lying flat out, without regard for facts -- is now 
being publicly acknowledged by GOP operatives.  Is there no shame?  Have 
YOU no shame?

Fuck, man.  It doesn't matter which side does that shit.  People are fed 
UP with it.  Leave that shit to professional liars.  Please fucking STOP 
pretending that shit.
