    most of you have good intentions when it comes to this voter fraud issue. I dont think many of you truly want to suppress any American voter.

    However, In my eyes, I have to say this current push to require a voter ID is just silly.

    First off, there are no massive accounts of voter fraud to speak of. In a system such as our, anomalies will occur from time to time. I just dont think this is the best way to deal with voter fraud. If voter fraud is even truly a issue hampering our elections.

    I spend a lot of time over seas, mainly on Ascension Island, Antigua, Grand Bahama and many other islands. My time over seas is work related. My concern is for my friends who live at these USAF bases over seas and return home to vote. How can they have the time to get a ID say if there's is no longer valid. I just dont see how these laws help. god forbid if any of my friends return home and hove this issue. what a heart breaker.

    Speaking from experience, a know about two dozen people who flew home just to vote in 2008, a day before the election and then flew back to work. Shame if any of these people get shafted by these new laws. I see that as extremely unAmerican.

    I strongly disagree that "most" have good intentions! Some, maybe, but not "most"...

    And "most" of them are too stupid to even know what they're talking about.

    I felt like firing a shot across the deck early on would one set people on the defensive. I wanted a good, rational discussion w/o name calling. I know that's asking a lot but worth a try.


    I just hate to see any American turned away form the polls because of these new laws. All one should require is a voter card that we all have, thats it.

    Me thinks someone is full of shit.

    "How can they have the time to get a ID say if there's is no longer valid. I just dont see how these laws help."

    I work for the military very few fly home just to vote. In fact, I don't know any and I suspect neither do you.

    Military can use absentee ballots and they should have valid I.D. Furthermore, if it's no big deal and there's so little fraud, what the hell is your issue with it?

    Not one person in the military is going to get shafted by any law requiring I.D.

    If I didn't know better I'd think a drama queen posted this.

    P.S. What's a CAC?

    Hey, Running Toilet Water, the only ones against I.D. are the ones up to something nefarious.

    He'll probably look up what a CAC is? Anyone in, or working for the military will know.

    What stupid hypocracy we see here. The Republican leaders are at least a bit more honest. They admit that the whole purpose of the laws are to disenfranchise people in order to win elections.

    Judge Upholds Penn. Voter ID Law; GOP Admits Law Designed to "Allow" Mitt Romney to "Win the State"

    On Wednesday, a Pennsylvania judge upheld a controversial voter ID law that critics say could disqualify hundreds of thousands of voters. Republican lawmakers have openly admitted the law was designed to impact the result of the November election. In June, Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai listed off a number of legislative accomplishments. "Voter ID, which is going to allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania: Done," Turzai said. Meanwhile, Florida, New Mexico and other states are being accused of purging voters ahead of the election. "Whenever states determine that they want to purge their rolls or clean up their rolls, it takes time. It has to be done efficiently and effectively. And waiting to do so so very close up to an election always raises concerns about why a state is doing it so close to an election," says Nicole Austin-Hillery of the Brennan Center for Justice. "We’re always concerned about errors and the fact that innocent people, individuals who are indeed eligible registered voters, we’re always worried about whether those people may be erroneously kicked off the rolls."

    You do realize, Libtard, that you just admitted Democrats engage in mass voter fraud?

    LOL

    Personally I believe the DEMS are wrong on this issue.

    My ONLY complaint about demanding voter ID is that there is no evidence that anybody is advancing any plan to make those voter IDs easily accessible to people.

    I KNOW that for many people, at least hereabouts, getting any kind of picture ID can be a real pain in one's ass.

    Getting an offical state ID here means that citizens have to travel at least 40 miles and spend a number of hours waiting for that ID to be created. Additionally, the paperwork that many people need to get that ID is often beyond their grasp, too.

    So, while I support voter ID in principle, I can not support that law UNTIL every citizen can get those IDs without having to leave their congressional DISTRICT to get it.
