(Reuters) - Over loud objections from Democrats, Montana's Republican-controlled Senate on Friday voted to put proposals on the 2014 ballot that would tighten voter registration and restrict the rights of third parties to compete in general elections.

The measures, which are expected to be approved by the Republican-majority House, do not need approval from the Democratic governor. They would go before Montana voters in November of next year.

The measures would ask voters to eliminate same-day voter registration, and put in place a new primary election system that only allows the two political parties that get the most votes in the primaries to be on the ballot in the general election.

Both are seen as benefiting Republicans. Third parties have acted as spoilers for some Republican candidates in recent elections. Same-day voter registration is considered a plus for Democrats.

The Republicans CAN’T WIN
On the merit of their proposals or arguments

The Republicans CAN’T WIN
On their policies

The Republicans CAN’T WIN
On their platforms

The Republicans CAN’T WIN
On their past performance

The Republicans CAN’T WIN
On their abilities or capabilities

So Republicans have to

AND THEN Republicans have to

LIE  --  --  CHEAT  --  -- STEAL  --  --
The Republican way
to win an election.
