    Do you support the requirement that people show a photo ID to buy a gun?
    If so, how then can you oppose the same requirement in order to vote?

    You have to be kidding me.... NO ONE that opposes requring a photo ID for voting wants to try to tackle this one?

    It has you THAT stumped?

    Shouldn't that at least make you reconsider your opposition?

    I mean, if you're honest...

    Well, I'll take a stab at it.

    A person with a gun that's registered to someone else can kill someone, wipe the prints off and ditch the weapon... thereby taking a human life and putting the person who's name the shooter used in a potential Criminal situation....

    A person who votes without ID can, at the very worst....screw up a local, or perhaps(with a huge amount of luck) a State election.

    Huge difference.

    Go ahead with your voter ID laws and overenthusiastic roll purges and crappy gerrymandering and citizen's united and locked door vote counts and all the other crap that adds up to the same old republican vote rigging and your candidate will still lose, with a long tradition of that shit no wonder you think Obama cheated.

    First off.... Voter fraud doesn't dictate good or bad in a leader... just the potential of a person getting elected. That's personal deflection on your part.... second... that potential of a person who wields enough power to get people killed is miniscule.

    yes. because the 20th century is filled with examples of people who have power not getting people killed.

    I am saying that a person who wields enough power to get people killed getting elected due to voter fraud is miniscule... I guess I wrote that up wrong... sorry.

    Welll sure.

    "Screwing up the election" devalues the rights of, and thus, harms -everyone- that voted in that election -- as such, it's far, far worse than what you decribed in regards to the gun.

    So, what was your point?
