"Requiring voter ID is racist and it excludes blacks from being able to vote" This type of sentiment is often expressed by democrat politicians when pressed on the issue of requiring an official state ID to vote. This is absolutely ridiculous in so many aspects and one issue that politicians state is that these voters don't have "time" to go get an ID - which is positively ridiculous and insulting to the people listening to this and especially to the people the politician is speaking about. Here are a couple numbers:

8,760. That is the number of hours in each year (non leap year)
35,064 - hours between presidential elections
490,896 - hours since civil rights act

The politicians also say that requiring an ID would "disenfranchise" voters, ESPECIALLY BLACK voters, for some reason. I'm wondering if any of these people are disenfranchised when they want to do any of the following - and are denied b/c lack of ID:

Stopped by police and asked for ID (even homeless people have them!)
buy permanent markers - (varies by state)
paint markers - (varies by state)
buy many types of medicine (non-controlled - non-prescription - like OTC cough medicine, sinus medicine, diet medicine, etc - not to mention MANY prescription medications)
buy Various paint solvents
buy lighter refill cylinders (like butane)
entering various government buildings
Flying, taking a bus or train
Registering at a hotel/motel
Opening a bank/credit union account
Getting a utility - power, cable, phone, cell phone, gas, water/sewer, etc
renting a vehicle - car/truck/SUV, moving trucks, etc
buying a gun and or ammo (ammo depends on state and store)
Buying/bidding at an auction
Buying cigarettes
Buying Alcohol - liquor or beer
Gambling - casino's, slots (player must posses ID to play - not necessarily show ID), race tracks, sports betting, etc
Applying for Gov services - Food stamps, Medicare/caid, housing, cash, etc
Apply for unemployment
Rent, lease or buy a house, apt, office space, warehouse, etc
Get a mortgage
Buy a car & get insurance
Get married
Buy an animal/pet - dog, cat or other animal
get a hunting license
get a fishing license
Donate bodily fluid (blood, sperm)
Protest - get a permit or to actually protest (must have ID on person while protesting - must be able to identify ones self)
Buy an adult (over 18 video)
See a "restricted" or X+ video
Buy or rent a "M" rated video game
Buy nail polish (at many retail establishments)
Buy nail polish remover
Get a professional license - hair dresser, barber, pilot, real estate agent, finance related field and hundreds of other professions
Enter a national park
Get a camp ground at a national park (or state park/forrest) and/or many private locations
write a check
Travel outside the US
Enter a night club, bar, dance club, etc (and also possibly buy alcohol there)
get a job
get a student loan
attend college or trade school

I would call a person who is not able to do any of the things on this list "disenfranchised" because they are restricted in doing so many things that I know of almost no one who wouldn't get an ID - even people who are the most extreme "off grid" people, still have an ID and people who's religion stops them from having pictures taken and other factors related to ID's, very often have them (I'm thinking of Amish). Imagine if we made a law that said a person couldn't do any of those things (wait, there already kind of is a law that says that...), would people riot or would they get the ID necessary to do the above?


There have been video's of people surveying people on the street if they had an ID and also asked where would they get an ID if they needed one. Not one person, even homeless people interviewed, didn't have ID's. The line that Democrat's push about "blacks" not having ID was totally ridiculous and the blacks found it completely offensive when shown the politicians (always white BTW) saying these things. This behavior by the Dem's is infantilization of their voters and it is clear it is an effort to retain any amount of control over them possible in addition to making excuses for their bad behavior as well as making them out to be incapable of doing the most basic things necessary to fit into society at large. Is it any wonder that blacks feel entitled a bit when they are treated like this by the political group that panders to them every 4 years? If I were black, I would greatly resent these people (Dems) especially b/c they make promises every 4 years and then turn their backs on them after the election (for the most part..). I don't like to see anyone treated this way b/c I've been treated similarly to this and know it sucks and it can make a person question their own abilities - and after decades of doing this, I wonder how many have heard this over and over and it has torn down self esteem to a point of being reliant on the democrat "saviors".

It is clear that the only reasons democrat's push for no voter ID laws is because it would expose their massive voter fraud and also remove the talking point of supporting "no ID vote" which makes it look like they are standing up for those "poor blacks" (which is repulsive in their victimizing and underestimation of blacks abilities - which is a true form of racism demonstrated every 2-4 years). I wonder if blacks see how they are being used and if they are OK with it because they think they will benefit from it if/when the democrat candidate gets into office? They seem to forget that they are most often forgotten as soon as the votes are cast and counted.

Non-white people are ‘less capable’.

That’s 100% what democrats and their supporters believe.

Racist to the core.



No amount of mental gymnastics could ever show that voter ID laws are detrimental to any particular race of people whatsoever.

Voter ID laws are not racist in any way.

That's basically it right there.
"Do you think that's harder for black people to go online?" "Well I feel like they don't have the knowledge of how, of like, how it works."

The idea of using an ID to vote doesn't suppress anyone that is eligible to vote.
The only ones being suppressed are the people that cannot legally vote.

One of these days blacks and women will get tired of people telling them that they are not capable of keeping up with whites without help..

The prog's will blah blah blah, orange man bad, blah blah blah, racist, bigots are what we have they say. Yep they do have it, ironically it is THEIR racism that is being shared and not the MLK way. Content of character was thrown out so some people can be successful like Al Not-So-Sharpton and the Anti Semites of the Farrakhan clan.

Yeah I don’t buy the argument that voter id laws are too onerous. Like you said, when valid ids such as a license or passport are required for everything from air travel to signing a lease on an apt, it’s ridiculous to assert that therefore people can’t be required to do so for voting.

It might be a different argument if ids weren’t required for all these other activities.

Given that, the efforts to stop voter id seem suspicious or misguided.

If you do not require voter ID, one person can go vote for many different people by just googling their address and some information about them. Then if that person goes out to vote, they will not let him/her/it vote because they have already voted.

ID required, and only citizens are supposed to vote, that has been understood for hundreds of years.

Woah...that's a big list of # you guys need ID to buy. Huh...wow...I don't need an ID to buy a good majority of those things. I also don't need to carry ID on me unless i'm driving...hell I don't even have to show cops my ID unless they're arresting me. . Hmmm must be this 'freedom' I keep hearing about you guys have down there

And i've been to a national in America without needing to show ID....to get into the country sure...but I never had to show ID to get into the park.

I was watching some news show where they were interviewing people who had moved to FL, 10+ years before, from NY (mainly the city) and they all had come up as voting in NYC elections as well as admitting to voting in FL. They said that someone must have been using their name to vote b/c "they hadn't".

Now this type of thing can be used by the people themselves or by others exploiting people who have moved away.

I'd say for a person to be able to vote, they must own property, house & have a job. These will be the type of people who have a better moral compass for who gets elected.

The Democratic Party needs this to win and stay in power.

There is no other reason to NOT have a Voter ID.

Don't you know, according to the left non-white folks are too lazy to get an ID, too poor to afford transportation, too dumb to think for themselves and too dependent on the party to ever defect. The world according to the left!!!

And they wonder why record numbers (anecdotal) of non-white voters are leaving the Dem party.

Maybe they're tired of being put in a box by the Democrat establishment

I think you should be thrown out of the country if you vote illegally. And, if you come back, you get your arms and legs hacked off and thrown into the ocean. But, I'm a simple thinker.

That said, I don't have a problem with a person who was once-upon-a-time convicted of a felony having their voter rights restored. I mean, they got released from prison after all. Sounds like they've paid what they owe to me.

I don't see the reasoning in requiring anything other than bonafide citizenship to cast a vote on the way your country is being run. If we start imposing requirements, let's first enforce a period of conscription in the armed forces. You can't become a citizen unless you serve. Civil service doesn't count. No one 'needs' to be a citizen unless they want the 'rights' that go along with it.

Ya make up rules like, "You have to own a house." and where does that lead? "Well, Johnny, your house isn't quite big enough." "Johnny, you can't just sell Whoppers at Burger King and expect to have voting rights!! Gimme a large fries with that. To go, please."

A serious question for Americans (I'm from the UK). Doesn't everybody have to register with your local authority. ie. how many people are living at an address, their names and ages? Therefore the local authority has a record of all the people that are illegible to vote and come voting time those legible to vote must apply to vote and are given a card as ID in the voting booth. 1 card, 1 vote.
The authorities can check anytime the credibility of any residence to stop fraud voting.

As per the liberals, blacks are low IQ, low education, lazy, inept, ignorant...so on and so on. They have little ability to get a voter ID card, its just too much for them, out of their reach of understanding. Because of this they can't possible live on their own and need a life of time government support...

The poor dears...

You don't need a picture and lets say 1 million illegals steal SS numbers and then uses them to registrar to vote. I think in some states you can do this by mail too. Stealing SS numbers is how they can work vote do many things...Stealing those numbers is very common practice like pretty much all do it.

I agree with the being thrown out of the country for voting illegally, especially if it is an illegal immigrant. If it is a citizen and they commit some kind off fraud, I'm not sure how that would work, especially if they were born here. I would think permenatnly revoking their right to vote would be a reasonable punishment and maybe for a second offense deportation to GITMO!

Yes, we can thank the Dem's for this nightmare. They enacted this specifically b/c of the things I mentioned - b/c they say minorities are disenfranchised - can't get to the DMV, can't afford internet access, can't afford a photo ID, can't be accountable to carry a photo ID, etc. I'm not sure I've ever seen a group make so many blanket disparaging comments about another group (especially a minority group) and not catch total h3ll for it - but I guess since those minority groups might benefit from this action in some way, it's all good to disparage them and speak poorly about them as a whole. So hypocritical.

Because people needing to have ID to vote is tantamount to having ICE death squads going house to house and carting people off to concentration camps if they don't have the correct papers, in the eyes of the progressive left.

Even though, like you said in the OP, all number of mundane tasks require ID, because you know, fraud is a thing.

I think the key word to the progressive left's opposition to voter ID is fraud. Perhaps of the electoral kind? I guess that logical conclusion makes me a racist.
