Yet another edition of “I’m sick of this shit.” 
This isn’t funny. I’ve worked on campaigns and fielded calls asking if this is really the case. The 33 shares, as of last night at 1:00 AM, worries me. I’ve seen this crap on flyers distributed to low-income neighborhoods that typically have lower levels of education and voter registration. 
This goes for both parties. Stop it. It’s not cute, it’s not funny, it’s viral voter suppression. You might think you’re clever enough to get the joke, but there’s people out there who don’t realize it’s a goddamn terrible joke — especially when you add some official-sounding law to it, like the image above. 
Hey Grass Roots Republicans — it’s “grassroots.” The president is not “Barry Soetoro.” His name is Barack Obama. Also, just stick to the shitty MS paint comparisons of unicorns and a Romney presidency. You’re better at that. You know the biggest thing they have in common, kiddos? The chances of both existing are equally imaginary.
