53. Oh back in the last century, early part, they used
to pay for votes.

It was bad. You wanted to get a job as a municipal worker? You'd better vote the right way. ANd yes, they had ways to know.

In the modern period, like the last fifty years though. the Rs have gone down a path that makes the PRI look like honest brokers. And in the South, they have been at it far longer, and that is not party... but color of skin. You know there are certain people we need to keep from voting... it used to be dems, these days it is Rs.

And it is an art.
