    While attacks continue on the rights of voters with stricter regulations that primarily affect the minority and poor it brings one to question the true nature of supposed Americans. Generally when the fundamental rights of Americans are attacked, people rally to support those being attacked. Today it appears as though a political party is so doubtful that they may win the general election they are willing to cast aside the rights of others to see their parties candidate win. It would be considered a hollow victory that will be challenged and never be considered legitimate in many eyes.

    No significant problem exists that are of any consequence, so fabrication or no explanation is offered. It is just terrible that others are willing to throw Americans under the bus because of their doubt in the ability of their party to win an election.

    There is a positive however, people will unite to right the wrongs and we will see more and more overturned elections, repeal of laws and challenges regarding taxation without representation.

    If you can win the game, change the rules..

    Where does it say you have the right to vote without showing valid ID?

    Why would any intelligent person want everyone to vote? The idea of you voting sends shivers down my spine.

    If you are a citizen, you are eligible to vote. If you are not, then you don't get to exercise a right you don't legally possess.
    Suppose, for instance, next November, you went to your polling place to vote and you were told you had already voted. You could actually face felony charges for voter fraud, even though someone else had previously voted using your name.
    You could stand there, even showing your driver's license, but you're still not going to be able to cast a ballot.
    Are you going to calmly walk away feeling all warm and fuzzy because the guy that wasn't asked to show a photo ID wasn't "disenfranchised?

    The implication of your post is that only one party would be adversely affected by people(voters) being required to prove who they are.
    Perhaps banks shouldn't require proof before cashing a check.
    Perhaps stores, bars and restaurants shouldn't require proof before selling alcoholic beverages.
    Perhaps courts shouldn't require proof before allowing one to either testify or serve on a jury.

    It cracks me up how progressives don't think minorities have the capability to get themselves an ID. Sad they don't have more confidence in them than that.
