Democrats have been stealing elections here for decades. Beware anyone who sounds reasonable and seems honest in spouting lies and casting aspersions on public officials.
It is democrats who refuse to purge the voter registration lists of those who have moved or passed on; they also do not want photo i.d.'s for voters because that would limit the dead and non-existant people who vote.
It was Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck who won the election for Obama. (You did read about Acorn and their scam to register non-existant people?)
IMO, democrats aren't necessarily against photo ID's at voting time, it's the hardship imposed on voters by requiring people who don't currently possess one, to go out and get one, that we object to.
If you're going to impose a picture ID voter requirement, then the government should be responsible for making sure that all eligible americans do indeed have a picture ID provided to them at no cost and/or inconvenience, especially to those who have limited mobility. Voting is not a privilege, it's a right and to create hardships with respect to someone's ability to vote would be a definite infringement of that right. I don't remember there being any personal cost associated with the constitutional right to vote and none should be incorporated at this time.
I wonder what it would cost to send someone out to every nursing home etc. in America to issue photo IDs to all of the non-driving residents at the facilities. Or maybe you think these people should just un-ass some of their surplus income that's being provided by Medicare & Social Security to pay for their little field trip to the local driver's license office. Or how about all the college students who don't drive and who's college issued IDs have been determined to be inadequate, like the proposed new law in Texas would have it?
I don't believe that the GOP is prepared to accept the cost associated with implementing such a plan, much less the law suits that would surely follow when they refused to provide the required IDs. But then I wouldn't expect them to be, seeing how they are the shallow minded thinkers that they are.
