    Truthfully, I don't give a crap. Everyone I know has a valid ID. This is just another bullshit escapade of the right. They are hoping that poor people without a Driver's license won't bother to get an ID just to vote and it will skew the results in their favor.

    Nothing more, nothing less.

    The other 25% are either illegals or support them.

    An escapade? You call the good people who run the polling places part of an "escapade"? You lefties either try to fake cynicism or you really are stupid. You need a photo ID to get into Costco for God's sake. Why does the left think it's a conspiracy to show a photo ID to vote? Yeah right lefties, play the race card and the poverty card and stay ignorant.

    We aren't talking about Costco, are we? and BTW... who played the race card?.... oh yeah! YOU DID!

    I never mentioned a damned thing about race. I mentioned poor people who have better things to do with their money than to go to the DMV to get a photo ID to make you ingnorant asses happy. A voter registration? they can do that on their local street corner. But a valid Photo ID can only be done at select places.

    Which is your agenda... selectivity and exclusivity. I've heard the right's call for banning the voting rights for people who don't own land. This is just a watered down version of the same thing.

    I am sorry... I believe that ANY one who is a citizen of this country has a right to vote for their government. IF you want the valid ID's so bad.... I suggest you gas up your car, go to the ghettos and drive those people to the DMV and pay for their ID Cards. Let me guess... you aren't willing to do that... and more importantly... you aren't willing to PAY for the government to do it either!

    That's right... you want YOUR party to have the advantage... and you are willing to change legislation to make it happen.

    Well, that's because it's a common sense way to prevent voter fraud.

    Is it? who are you to judge?

    Once again... if you are willing to take poor, indigent people to the DMV and provide them free ID cards, I am for it.

    Because make no mistake... those poor, indigent people are every bit as much of a US citizen as you.

    Let's see, you have to have an ID to drive, register for school, register for unemployment, cash a check, open a bank account, get a job, etc.

    But not to vote in elections that affect the direction of this nation.

    Makes perfect sense.

    I doubt seriously there's a poor citizen of this country that hasn't an ID. You have to have one to receive most all forms of public assistance, nay, to do most anything.

    Next.
