Voting has never been an absolute nor inalienable right. ...

Bullshit. One [hu]man[being] one vote!

What's going wrong is it that children (including still unborn children) have no vote. Sure this votes have first to be managed from the parents in the best interest of their children and have step by step to be expanded until they are able to vote fully when they'll reach full age.
America was never a direct democracy, thank God, but a constitutional Republic. Voting is NOT an absolute right.

Voting is a right. The US is not a pure constitutional Republic. It has elements of a direct democracy. Ordinary citizens have a say in who represents them. The Roman Empire was a Republic and ordinary citizens had no say.

The thread title is inaccurate. Here is the correct version:

Ted Cruz takes a stand to protect legal U.S. citizens from being disenfranchised.

As an aside, the original title is a clear violation of the Clean Thread Policy...not that I have any faith in the Board Hegemony to apply that policy to anyone who is not right of center.

The correct title should be this:

Ted Cruz takes a stand to disenfranchise US voters.

Trump supporters are the most uninformed of them all. Educated voters tend to be more Democrat.

Ive seen many voters who were far more ignorant than Trump voters who happened to be Democrats. Generally they’re older voters who literally have no idea who or what they’re voting for.

100% of the OVER-educated folks I know vote Democrat.

I would like to know how decreasing voting days, closing voting places, putting one or two voting machines in voting places, putting old and defective voting machines in voting places, removing ballot drop boxes and eliminating no excuse mail in voting will stop vote fraud that doesn't exist?

Amen!

Democrats aren't the ones doing the cheating!

Right. That's why they resist vote ID and cleaning voter rolls. DURR.

Provisions should be made for people who may be unable to get IDs. There are people who may be unable to get a ID because of their work hours or lack of transportation.Many Indians on reservations have a PO Box as their address so they are unable to get IDs because they have no permanent address. Why should voter rolls be cleaned? Just because someone chooses not to exercise them is no reason to kick them off of the rolls.

Provisions should be made for people who may be unable to get IDs.

Yeah, I'm sure that's a huge number of Dems. LOL!

Why should voter rolls be cleaned?

Because people move. Because people die. It's common sense, so I see why you're confused.

The Texas senator rallied his GOP colleagues around the issue on an invitation-only call heard by The Associated Press.

On an invitation-only call last week, Sen. Ted Cruz huddled with Republican state lawmakers to call them to battle on the issue of voting rights.

Democrats are trying to expand voting rights to “illegal aliens” and “child molesters,” he claimed, and Republicans must do all they can to stop them. If they push through far-reaching election legislation now before the Senate, the GOP won’t win elections again for generations, he said.

Asked if there was room to compromise, Cruz was blunt: “No.”

There is much more in the link below...


Why are Republicans so desperate to limit voting rights? Voting fraud has been thoroughly proven to be nearly nonexistent; therefore, one can only assume they don't want certain groups of voters voting for Democrats. I predict that this will not end well for Republicans. We must not allow a resurgence of Jim Crow voter suppression. What do you think?

Hey genius voting only requires the following: Age 18 a US citizen, register in person, vote in person or request and absentee ballot. ALL absentee ballots due in BEFORE election day. Only exceptions military and overseas. BOTH parties LEGALLY represented at vote counts NO communist Chinese or other foreign software for US elections. Problem solved.

It should also require ID.

A ID is not necessary as there is no evidence of absentee ballot fraud.

Liar.

Actually we are a constitutional democratic republic.

We have a constitution.

We have a representative government.

Those representatives are elected democratically by the people.

If we were a republic only, the people wouldn't be the ones who elected those representatives.

It would be done in backrooms by party bosses only.

I would be shocked to get any reply or any logical and coherent reply to that from any republican on this board.

Democrats have already been tge 1st ones to declare they would not work with, would not compromise with, Republicans after taking the Senate & stealing the WH, so you can stop with the pathetic act that the GOP is in some way doing something the Democrats have been doing since before Biden took office.

And with the radical, nation-destroying agenda the Democrats are ramming down the throats of the GOP & the American people, the GOP is right not to ho along with it.

For me to know and you not to find out.
Voting has never been an absolute nor inalienable right. It is a privilege and responsibility. And voter ID does not place undue burdens on anyone.

That is untrue and voter ID can place a undue burden.
Why? Because people in the inner cities are too fucking lazy to get off their asses and get a damned job in the first place?

Ideally, we should go back to Senators being chosen by State Legislatures.

Voting is NOT an absolute right. Illegal invaders should never have the ability to vote, but your side want 100% one party rule so you will do anything and everything legal or no to achieve it. We REAL Americans are telling you Commies, NO!

Well, no, senators and representatives are chosen by we the people. Presidents and vice presidents are chosen by electors who are chosen by the legislature, at least according to the constitution.

Wasn't always the case. I believe (correct me if I am wrong), it was the 17th Amendment that changed how Senators are chosen. We need to get back to that.

The trouble is that when you do it, mistakes are made. You know this is a way for Republicans to get voters off the voting rolls. If they have noved or are dead then they cannot request a ballot.

You are the liar. The only recent example of fraudulent use of absentee ballots was caught by officials in NC without the use of picture IDs.
