There worried if Voter ID gets passed they won't be able to vote twice.
Sadly it makes sense to do this, voter fraud is getting to be a problem.
Originally posted by jjf3rd77 Do you not think that due to the record number of Blacks and Latinos that voted for Obama, you know those that usually don't have photo IDs, their was a few people that were not who they said they were?
The only way this is an issue is because the dems brought it up. Automatically making it a left-right issue.
Let me educate you:
On Nov. 2nd 2011 Rep. Keith Ellison ( D-Mn) proposed House bill H.R 3316: Current Title: “To prohibit election officials from requiring individuals to provide photo identification as a condition of obtaining or casting a ballot in an election for Federal office or registering to vote in elections for Federal office, and for other purposes.”
How can we prove you are who you say you are?

Liberals are usually for big government
Conservatives usually want less government
Conservatives justify the push because you need a photo ID to pretty much do anything or get anywhere.
Liberals don't want Photo Ids because it costs money or is seen as an attack against the poor?
I am confused by the switched mentality

Republicans justify this because they don't want illegal immigrants, the poor and minorities voting. Because most of them would vote against the GOP because of how they treat people without money. This move would require government intervention into our lives. This is a BIG government move, disproving your initial statement above.

Could anyone please locate one of these "mystery people" who have no ID and are too poor to afford one? Seriously?
