Republican Plans for Voting and the Poor

Part of the conservative effort, money, and research,
Will do what it can to kick the poor off citizenry’s perch.
Squelch hope, foster poverty, and bring homeless states,
And with bloated words paint them worthless reprobates.

Why’s this done, too many clueless Dems might ask?
So Dem voters will abandon any active voting task.
If that won’t work, Pugs have more things up tricky sleeves,
They’ll pass some laws to stop Dem voting, say “voting fraud’ll seize.”

What to do about working families who manage to feed their kids?
Many must work several jobs and shifts, with no security lid.
There’s low starvation wages something Pugs are morally for,
There’s less time to vote, so Pug states cut vote days even more.

They’ll impede the vote and misinform to get more favorable reviews,
Nonsense they’ll spout, fear they’ll dispense, and threats of terror too.
They’ll win the white testosterone vote and minimize the rest,
Choose to keep the rabble away, or just rely on fear and hate fest.

Remember Pubs have all the tools to take elections away,
And what they lack they’ll put in place for many future days.
Since ’10, Pubs control over half the states – guvs and reps, too,
Pack courts, deform districts, and shrink nonwhite voting to few.

Pugs impede and demagogue, creating log-jammed governing bogs,
Devalue the dollar currency and suppress all governing urgency,
Until radical demands are got, the government, Pugs’ll wholly stop,
Already done you say? It’ll be done again until they, liberal dragons slay.

But the Prez can always veto, you say – he’s still got a year to go,
Time enough to Trump the Sec, we’ll bury her with our dough.

Pugs’ll bide their time, shun the haste, we’re going to make liberal paste,
Attacks of Muslim rads we’ll use, we’ll poison voter pools for Ayn Rand’s muse.
We’ll pan Dems running, say they’re soft on terror and fearwhip voters to choose orange hair-er.

Does ISIL seem to be picking their spree, to influence elections toward extreme GOP?
Remember in their propaganda aids it’s Fox News their propaganda most plays.
