    @Nemesis3X If voter ID came with a free phone or coupon for a couple of free meals at McDonalds, we would not have heard a peep from anyone.

    I'll also bet the waiting in lines or having to travel wouldn't be a "burden" if it meant getting one of those free Obama Phones. It's like the old saying, excuses are like a$$h**es.......

    How do these disenfranchised people buy beer, a fishing license, cash a check, rent a car, use a credit card, serve jury duty, buy a gun, get a job, get welfare, or any other thing that people normally do that requires ID?

    Also, if you can't buy a gun without an ID, than why did the law state it was ok to use gun licenses to vote? Yet not veteran ID cards, SS cards, or student IDs? If you need an ID to buy a gun than people with gun licenses have IDs right? So why not just say they need the ID?

    @TrueAtheist I agree, and owning a gun is a right. I understand the logic of requiring an ID for voting, as I do for owning a gun. Very sound logic in fact, the problem is, for better or worse, the US Constitution doesn't state this as a requirement. In fact since everyone seems to want my ID I try to avoid places that want it for no reason. I try to use cash, I go to a pharmacy that does require an ID, or if possible I flash my employee badge which tells you nothing unless you can scan it or are simply happy with looking at my face.
    I grew in in the latter part of the cold war and the thought of having an ID to do anything was something only communist nations required of its citizens. Makes me wonder who really won that war.

    @TeamAmerica Umm.... no, no it doesn't. Or at least it didn't used to. There are several volunteers out there registering people to vote and I've never seen one of them ask for ID, you just have to fill out a form with your name, address, affiliated party, dob, and signature. When I was a teenager I registered people to vote also along with collecting signatures on petitions and back then I was not required to ask anyone for their ID in order to register them. If you register at the DMV when you get a DLIC or State ID then it's just something they're allowing you to do as part of the process of getting said ID.

    Judge Simpson based his ruling on testimony about the difficulty of getting photo ID..... Difficult or people being too damn lazy to go to the DMV to get their free ID.....

    Yes, anytime something is difficult for the poor or minorities it is because they are lazy. It couldn't be that the program designed by a guy who openly claims that it was done so Romney would win PA was inefficient and politically skewed. Wait I forgot the Republican slogan. F$&@ you if you are poor or non-white.

    @Cheenoguy Oh that's right, expecting someone to take some initiative and responsibility to exercise their right must be a GOP ploy. Voting has become so pathetically easy the only step left is for someone to drive to your house, hand you a ballot, and vote for you. Beyond all that, that still doesn't answer the question as to what some lefty would say if not having an ID would "suppress" someone's right to purchase a firearm. But that pretty much follows the liberal slogan of we protect rights unless you want a firearm then f&^* you.....

    @LGRepublican I know the whole world is a conspiracy to take your guns and money but trying reading the article. The law is not been completely revoked just put off because the government trained employees were not well trained in what they were doing as well as there being a difficult process in general. Some form of this ID law will be in place for the next election. The law you want will be in place, but the judge wisely ruled to not let government incompetence keep people from government.
    You are acting like people can just show up and vote. They still have to be registered first, which is the process that insures people are qualified to vote. This process has worked so effectively that there has been virtually NO voter fraud. If I remember the quote correctly there has been something like 10 instances of voter fraud that could be stopped via ID since 2000. So why does this law need to be made? As was stated by PA Republicans: so Mitt Romney can win.
    The amount of voter fraud= virtually none. The number of firearm assaults= ridiculous. No one is ever found murdered by a voter card. We have an epidemic of gun violence that needs to be stemmed. It doesn't compare accurately to the epidemic of people voting opposite to what you want.
    I am for a voter ID system, but it needs to be done fairly and a full election cycle ahead of time. Just as the judge in PA ordered.

    @Cheenoguy It depends on where you are. In Wisconsin, the voting rules are so lack that you can register same day on site with your utility bill and only have to have "lived" at the address for 28 days. Needless to say, its ripe for the picking. I hear the vote fraud "isn't a problem" excuse quite a bit. It's hard to prove something when there are no tools available to gather proof. Consider a teacher who tells their students there will be no cheating on the test, then gets told by the Principal that they can't check the students or observe them, the teacher has to "take their word" they weren't cheating. Hard to prove any cheating took place now isn't it.....

    How can it be so hard to get an ID.?! I guess they didn't know when the election was...this is just a way for them to play their game...what, Voter fraud!
    I can't imagine that, it seems pretty obvious, you'd think they could come up
    with a more clever scam, that one's really lame!

    Voter ID is a solution for a problem that doesn't exist and would not have prevented the current Strategic Alliance registration fraud scheme. We ought to be encouraging voters, not placing obstacles.

    @MongoAPillager they refuse to believe it (unless its the Republicans), just like they refuse to believe welfare fraud/career!!!! Right @Sonny?

    life support voter ID laws, it is the states right. people want to vote and get a say concerning how much I am taxed, what its spent on, and what rules I have to live by - but I dont get to ask who they are? Are they eligable? I just have to assume that no one would lie? I think it's quite a legitimate request to show your ID in exchange for a vote that affects us all

    funny that one of those folks against honest election by using id just got a few years in prison for voter fraud, kind of shows the real reason they want no id to vote.

    also funny that to get into those democratic conventions id has to be shown yet something as important as a vote they want no part of. again double standards by the dishonest who support fraud.

    @tomincali I know I was being facetous. What I don't get is there is no shortage of transportation when it comes to hauling crowds of voters to the polls.

    I wonder why they are so adverse to getting photo id's for people who don't have them.
  • #56

    @DARSB Actually, the wails from the liberals beg to differ. Not only does the left not want voter fraud to be prevented, they also want it to be not detected. Worth noting that the law was not thrown out, just delayed. Hmmmm...

    I'll bet if any of those people "without ID's" wanted to buy a gun the left wouldn't be concerned about disenfranchised citizens not able to exercise their rights.....

    I agree with you. It was a desperate attempt to win an election because after four years Romney was the best they could do. So the Republican Party became "The end justifies the means" Party.

    Not all Republicans are evil. I lean more to the left, but I would have picked Ron Paul over Barack Obama any day.

    Though I agree with the fact that this law is an affront to the basic rights of the people of the democratic nation, I reject your accusation that Reps are evil. I know many conservatives here in Canada (who align with your American Republicans) and they're actually quite pleasant. We don't agree...but that doesn't mean they're evil.

    @VCP I do agree with your statement, however. The right could have done a lot better than Mitt Romney. I'm not saying Romney is a 'bad' guy, or whatever, but there were better choices.

    I'm glad they blocked the law. It is too late to acquire a photo I.D.
    Many states require multiple items to verify your identity and residency. And in heavily populated states and metropolitan areas, the wait time to get your permanent photo card can take up to two (2) months.
