To DARE think that requireing and ID to vote is so horrible!!!! It amazes me how you progressives think that it is okay for just anyone to walk in off
the street and vote in our elections!
Let me ask you this, "If we had a Republican for a president, would you feel the same way about it?". Your hypocracy and desparation to do
"anything possible" to keep the current potus in office is purely mind numbing........
And none of these things on your list are specifically renumerated as a Constitutional right. Second, many of us have no problem in general with the
concept, but as decent and logical human beings we know such laws cannot be enacted with mere months before a national election when even the State
officials admit there is not enough time for everyone who wants one to get such an ID. The logistics simply are not there for the State governing
institution to handle to flood of applicants in time. An honest person who cares about voting rights admits this; only the intentional vote
suppressors on the Right do not, which is of course expected from them. They detest Constitutional rights when applied to those not like
As it typically the case, the side aggressively pushing for such laws under the guise of protecting a fair vote are ALWAYS the ones working hardest to
make the vote tilt toward their side. The greatest example that will live in the busy and big wall of the Right Wing Hates America Wall of Shame is
the ACORN myth. The facts on ACORN were that ACORN itself alerted election officials to potentially fraudulent registrations. It did not need the
Press or political authority or watchdogs to find and call out the fraud -- they identified and call it out themselves.
But now we have widespread actual registration fraud perpetuated by the Republicans hired firm where it took election officials to uncover it and
sound the alarm. Further, the Right KNEW this organization's founder had ethical problems and previous voter registration fraud AGAINST him. So what
does the RNC do? They tell this man (Sproul, the former head of the Arizona RNC) to change the name of his organization and leave HIS name off the
organizations incorporation documents to try to trick the public that this was not the same guy who previously had fraud allegations laid on him in
Once again, the Right proves it is the real threat to American democracy. It proves IT is the group who detests the Constitution. It proves IT is the
side willing to lie and cheat and steal its way in to power. If you are a Right wing person, you are America's greatest domestic enemy.
