Voter Fraud Fantasy

 Voter Fraud is a Fantasy: 


"A study published by The Washington Post found only 31 different incidents of voter fraud since 2000 that an ID law could fix. During that same time, more than a billion ballots have been cast in general and primary elections alone.


The study by Justin Levitt, an expert in constitutional law, found those 31 incidents also represent claims, and some have not even been investigated or prosecuted (and could therefore be debunked). Those 31 potential incidents stack up against the 3,000 votes in the four states with strict ID laws that have been rejected for lack of ID." Attribute to Daily Beast

ACTION/ALERT: Thanking American Veterans with Proper Heath Care


We take inspiration this week from those who say that rather than merely thanking American veterans we call Congress this week to express our extreme displeasure at:

  1. The lack of proper health care veterans are receiving from the VA;
  2. The fact that this country deports veterans.

Draft Bylaw Change Proposal to be voted on January 23rd, 2014




The name of this organization shall be the Rancho Santa Fe Democratic Club.



Republicans have worked tirelessly to sabotage the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, holding innumerable meaningless hearings and voting some 47 times to repeal the law. They have denied the funds necessary to support the extra work required as a result of the Republican controlled states refusal to create their own insurance exchanges. Doing their share to thwart the law’s implementation, Republican led states have refused to expand (federally funded) Medicaid to their citizens and have passed laws to hinder the work of the ACA navigators. If the Republicans want to blame someone for the painfully slow ACA rollout they might start by looking in the mirror. More in DIRECT, the free weekly eZine for Democrats, at

Shutdown Strategy Fail

The GOP’s recent shutdown strategy, which has driven the Republican brand into the ground, was simply a continuation of the unprecedented campaign of GOP obstructionism which began on the day of Obama's first inauguration. The latest legislative skirmish was lead by Republicans who believe that shutting down the government in order to undermine Obamacare was a strategy worth pursuing.

Which do Republicans hate more - poison gas or Obama?

Republicans protested when Obama threatened to bomb Syria without congressional approval while others criticized him for seeking congressional approval. Some complained that Obama’s use-of-force resolution is too broad while others argue that it would amount to only a “pinprick.” Some assert that he should have intervened long ago while others say that he has not yet made the case for intervening. Others told him not to go to the United Nations then scolded him for not pursuing multilateral action.
