breaking news! republican Texas governor abbot sends the military to heavily black, spanish, and minority election polling stations
[link to www.foxnews.com (secure)]


The Texas National Guard said Monday that
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott is sending 1,000 troops to five of the state's biggest cities to handle any outbreaks of violence or unrest on Election Day or afterward, a move that left his political rivals uneasy.
The cities would include Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, Austin and San Antonio, according to the San Antonio Express-News .
The possibility that some of the troops might be sent to polling locations in those areas as soon as this weekend prompted Democrats to speculate about voter suppression and intimidation. While Texas has traditionally been a Republican bulwark, Democrats believe the state may be flippable this year and are fighting to unseat Sen. John Cornyn and retake control of the upper chamber of Congress.
Abbott's office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

Protecting polling stations “has not been on any mission request or in any conversation with the governor’s office," Maj. Gen. James K. “Red” Brown noted.

While troops could be sent to guard buildings, going near polling locations "has not been requested," Texas Guard spokesman Brandon Jones told the outlet.

On Monday night, other military officials told KXAN-TV they had no plans to provide support at polling locations.


....So where exactly is this voter intimidation and/or suppression?

Thats 200 troops per city. What sort of effect can such a small number truly have in a riot?

On second thought, all riots I saw so far on video had around 100 maximum people in them so maybe 200 armed soldiers ain't so bad.

"exactly

Nearby in the Friendly country of Mexico...

the Federales are on the streets for every election.

Sand bagged machine gun positions on critical corners...

jus ferfriendly interaction.*


Ever since the Texians and Tejanos in Tejas

united for Liberty on our side the Great River of the North.


*btw-I remember(on TV) the .50 cal machine gun positions

set up to control the main roads of Chicago...

One car tried to run the "control point" ...

the car's top was cut off by the .50 cal bullets.

Inside were dead bodies of the "men" and Molotov cocktails

on the floor of the car.

Captured by the "news".

"When the looting starts, the shooting starts."

[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

"Richard Daley, 1968
Mayor Richard J. Daley ordered police to shoot arsonists and looters during the 1968 Chicago riots that followed the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in April 1968. Daley did not use the phrase "when the looting starts, the shooting starts", but stated to Police Superintendent James B. Conlisk "very emphatically and very definitely that an order be issued under [your] signature to shoot to kill any arsonist or anyone with a Molotov cocktail, and shoot anyone looting stores in our city". Upon hearing that Conlisk had directed patrolmen to use their own discretion, Daley remarked "I would assume any superintendent would issue orders to shoot any arsonist on sight ... an arsonist is a murderer and should be shot right on the spot. The looters—you wouldn't want to shoot the youngsters—but you can shoot them and detain them."[29]

Chief Headley supported Daley's position: "That could have been me talking."[40] However, Headley was reprimanded for his remarks of support and later clarified that he was strictly talking about the response to riots in Chicago, not general policing in Miami,[41] and said that his officers had been instructed to "shoot when necessary". Looters, he said "should be given the opportunity to surrender to arrest" and if the looter resists, "anything it takes, including death, [should be used] to apprehend them."[42]

Chicago under Daley also saw police violence soon after amid the 1968 Democratic National Convention protest activity.

So.. LBJ started the Great Society..


Problem solved.




The Great Society was a set of domestic programs in the United States launched by Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1964–65. It was coined during a 1964 speech by President Lyndon B. Johnson at the University of Michigan and came to represent his domestic agenda.[1] The main goal was the total elimination of poverty and racial injustice.

The "War On Poverty"
Main article: War on Poverty

The August 1964 signing of the Poverty Bill
The most ambitious and controversial part of the Great Society was its initiative to end poverty. The Kennedy Administration had been contemplating a federal effort against poverty. Johnson, who, as a teacher, had observed extreme poverty in Texas among Mexican-Americans, launched an "unconditional war on poverty" in the first months of his presidency with the goal of eliminating hunger, illiteracy, and unemployment from American life. The centerpiece of the War on Poverty was the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, which created an Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO) to oversee a variety of community-based antipoverty programs.

The Food Stamp Act of 1964 made the program permanent, while the Social Security Amendments of 1967 specified that at least 6% of monies for maternal and child health should be spent on family planning. By 1967, the federal government began requiring state health departments to make contraceptives available to all adults who were poor. Meal programs for low-income senior citizens began in 1965, with the federal government providing funding for "congregate meals" and "home-delivered meals."[31] The Child Nutrition Act, passed in 1966, made improvements to nutritional assistance to children such as in the introduction of the School Breakfast Program.[32]

That is a good way tp provide a safe and secure place for all legal citizens who want to vote at those locations.

Also would be a way to deter (or arrest) illegals who want to vote (illegally)
