    Yet more broken promises from the Repubs.
    The Repubs promised that if they got elected - that they would focus on creating jobs and fixing the economy.
    Instead they're trying to strip workers of their rights, and trying to bust the unions - for selfish partisan political reasons.
    And now this push to try to make it more difficult for the American people to vote.

    The Repubs promised to work to help the American people if they got elected - but instead they're working to help THEMSELVES.

    They are entirely predictable and doing the exact things all the gay conservatives on here said they would not. It would be funny if it weren't so tragic.

    That's the real comedy of our RJ conservative hens. They like to think they're so realistic and have such common sense. In truth, they are so naive it's shocking. It probably shouldn't be shocking, but it somehow still is.

    You are so correct. I think I can truly understand the passion of the Democrats who want to ensure that voting should be easy for anyone, and I mean anyone, citizen or not. IDs should not be needed for something as casual. You should only have to show IDs for the truly more important things, such as renting a DVD from Blockbuster.

    It's just the latest form of poll tax. They can't call it that, due to that rather pesky consitutional amendment, but it remains one all the same.

    You do have to admire the right. They never ever ever give up, even on their most repulsive ideas.

    In Georgia the Democrats also opposed IDs and they initially claimed cost as a factor. To address this concern, the plan included having teams go to the homes and issue IDs at no cost. The Democrats still opposed it, showing that cost was only an excuse. The real objection to having IDs is it makes it harder for the unqualified to vote. Very clear.

    This sounds like Liberal crap. First paragraph from the article reads:

    "RALEIGH, N.C. – Empowered by last year's elections, Republican leaders in about half the states are pushing to require voters to show photo ID at the polls despite little evidence of fraud and already-substantial punishments for those who vote illegally."

    I'm sorry, but if you have to show your ID when you go to a fag bar, then what the FUCK makes you think it's so difficult to show your ID when you go to the voting booth? Are there THAT many people in the Universe that it's so impossible for them to BRING THEIR GOD DAMN ID with them to VOTE? Three things you bring with you everywhere you go: cell phone, keys, ID. If you don't have an ID, then you either need to get one or you are not a US citizen then just have 15 children and the next generation will get even.

    You'd have a point if voter fraud was even a minuscule problem in the US, but it isn't. In fact, our problem is that far too few citizens vote.

    If we wanted to increase voter participation, we could make Election Day a national holiday. But politicians do not want increased participation because it would shift our politics to the Left.

    I happen to think that it is NOT out of line and, Yes, it should be mandatory that EVERY voter has to show a legal ID to vote. It boggles the mind that some think this is somehow a bad thing. Hell, you get carded to enter a bar or club...they card people to buy liquor...you have to show ID to get a driver's license...to cash a check...sometimes even to use a credit card. It truly mystifies me that people think it's a bad thing to be required to show proper legal ID when voting.

    Hear, hear!

    We should make it so that EVERYONE, citizen, non-citizen, and even corpses can vote. Without any IDs... and bus homeless folks to as many polling stations as possible, because as we all know, the votes of the proletariat should be counted multiple times to offset the power of the rich, AMIRITE?

    Vote early, vote often. icon_biggrin.gif

    The RJ right-wingers aren't naive.
    They didn't think the Repubs wouldn't pull this same old shit.
    They VOTED FOR THE SAME OLD SHIT
    lol
    Anything to help Repubs win elections is A-Okay with our all too predictable RJ right-wingers.
    As we can see from their posts on this thread - they don't mind that the Repubs are pulling this same old shit.
    They love it.

    Absolutely right.
    And the point of why this is so offensive is that the Repubs promised to focus on creating jobs and working on THE ECONOMY.
    NOT playing selfishly bitter partisan policial games that they think will help them win elections.
