Texas is red, and getting redder all the time. Practically all statewide and even local offices are Republican-held, with the exceptions of Houston, San Antone, Austin, Dallas, and parts of Fort Worth. And many of those are barely blue now.

Jacking with TX election law isn't doing anything but fueling the fire.

And the people coming over the border are not Puerto Ricans. They are rural Mexicans. Legal or not, they are deeply Religious, and are fleeing a controlling nanny-state where it is impossible to open your own business (due to corruption).
They are not coming to Texas to vote Democrat.

The dems don't want to admit that they've lost the state for now. It isn't even in play, and won't be in 2016. and with the influx from the south, it now gets THIRTY EIGHT electoral votes, up by 4.

watch for the Dems to start attacking the electoral college, next.

Please don't make a big deal about nothing ... because

When you register to vote in Texas, you must show some ID. If they have a Driver's License ( even with their prior last name ) that's how they will be listed to vote.

i.e. ... the names will match.


What? That assumes that every woman in Texas is not already registered to vote? Under her Maiden Name!

In Illinois I registered to vote a decade ago...I don't have to register again with each election.

Which means your explanation would only hold true for first time voters vs. regular voters who will show up at the voting booth and be denied the right to vote.

Geez people, give women more credit for being intelligent and responsible. Responsible women have proper ID because is is required for so many things and it proves to be part of who she is. Not having a correct ID is right up there with "oh, I forgot my birth control."

Yeah, I mean, it's just a theory, cause, nobody can study this without being partisan, but IMO, a lot of voter ID laws target minorities and the poor as a means to make it harder for them to show up and vote, because these people vote Democrat.



Correct...If ever you doubted that there was Republican bias at play with these laws...



Making matters more difficult is Texas’ new voter ID law, expected to take effect in 2014, which opponents say is designed to disenfranchise minorities and other Democratic-leaning voters.

Under the new law, concealed-carry gun licenses are an acceptable form of ID at the polls; student ID cards are not.

So..>College students, women and minorities...

The end problem is that they remember these slights and demographics and time eventually defeat these tactics.

Backlash is a bitch come election day.

Student IDs are invalid for the simple reason that they are not issued by the State of Texas, and may not have any security practices associated with their issuance.

Any Federal or state photo ID (or one for which you had to show a photo ID) is acceptable.

This cuts to the heart of the issue. Maintaining a valid ID is part and parcel of participating as an adult in public society in Texas (and the USA, for that matter).

The whole "victim" stance is based on the idea that every institution exists to wipe your butt for you. We see an endless parade of victims who say, "someone should have fixed this for me." Like the woman in a wheelchair who was going to sue the state because the paths in a wilderness area were not paved for her access.

Im not a Texan but I am a women voter.

I do not see one thing wrong with this. I'm tired of fraud, aren't you?

The Democrats and Liberals are grasping at straws trying to think up any propaganda they can to use against any party that is not theirs. Does anyone actually take a step back when watching NBC and CNN and think wtf? All they do is promote hate citing fabled racism and women hating. I'm a women and i'm not falling for it.

I have no problem with people voting legally they should, period.

Think Progress reports that as of November 5, Texans must show a photo ID with their up-to-date legal name. It sounds like such a small thing, but according to the Brennan Center for Justice, only 66% of voting age women have ready access to a photo document that will attest to proof of citizenship. This is largely because young women have not updated their documents with their married names, a circumstance that doesn’t affect male voters in any significant way. Suddenly 34% of women voters are scrambling for an acceptable ID, while 99% of men are home free.


I could be wrong but I don't think the courts will let this type of BS stand.

First off...I dont know what women you hang around with but 99% of the women I know have driver's licenses. The 66% and 34% numbers someone just yanked out of their hiney.
80% of all statistics are made up on the spot by 25% of the population.
This is such a load of crap, I cannot give it enough credit.

Why the hell would you not believe that ID is important for voting? If it isnt needed, then heck I am going to register under 30 names and vote 60 times in 4 different voting districts.

Ignorance is not an opinion...it's just ignorance.

And there are still women in America who consider themselves Republicans? A woman saying she's a Republican in Texas is like a cut flower admiring the bouquet.

They call Texas a "Red State" for a reason - the majority of us are conservative Republicans. That includes Texas women.

If you say you're a Democrat in Texas, you'll probably lose friends.

Can you show us voter fraud convictions in Texas?
edit on 10-12-2013 by LDragonFire because: (no reason given)


I can. 2002-2012, 18 instances (convictions, no-contest pleas or guilty pleas) of voter fraud have been confirmed in Texas.

AG elec Referrals
AG elec Charges Pending
AG elec Prosecutions

So, not very much.

Thanks stutteringp0et good job on your reply to LDragonFire, he doesn't seem to understand, Google Is Your Friend!
I have some thing's to add.


In Texas, evidence of voter fraud abounds. In recent years, my office has secured more than 50 voter fraud convictions. Those include a woman who voted in place of her dead mother, a political operative who cast ballots for two people, and a city councilmember who registered foreign nationals to vote in an election decided by 19 votes. Voter fraud is hard to detect, so cases like these are just the tip of the iceberg.
In 2011, Texas enacted a photo-identification requirement modeled after Indiana's. Our Legislature agreed with the Supreme Court that this requirement is a simple, effective way to prevent fraud. History also shows that voter turnout has increased after voter ID laws were enacted, and because Texas provides voter ID cards free of charge, no Texan's voting rights will be affected.


The Obama administration's Department of Justice has now reversed its previous approval of voter ID laws and attempted to block Texas' law. Attorney General Eric Holder used tortured logic and manipulated statistics to reach the already-rejected conclusion that photo ID requirements are racially discriminatory

Texan, Evidence of Voter
LDragonFire, You did notice the part I highlighted for you about the Voter ID cards are Free and Voters Turnout has Increased. You notice obama is doing Exactly the Opposite What The Texans Wants it would appear. But that's normally his policy.

More than 4,000 people's names are listed both on Harris County’s voter rolls and also in a federal database of death records, a Texas Watchdog analysis has found. Dozens have apparently cast ballots from beyond the grave, records since 2004 show. One expert says the number of deceased names used to cast ballots may be higher than what Texas Watchdog’s analysis found. Instances of dead voters’ names being used to cast ballots were most frequent in three elections, the November 2004 general election, the November 2006 general election and the March 2008 Democratic primary, the analysis found


ACORN likes it when the Dead Votes
Yes in Texas!

18 cases of fraud. Point made thank you very much!


LDragonFire
There are not enough voter fraud convictions to justify limiting the right to vote. Voter fraud is not a widespread issue, and you can't prove it is.

Show me the problems in Texas that justifies this law.

Or was the law enacted because Texas is going blue very soon and they needed a way to stifle the vote for as long as they can?

Yea, these people are


If they are not in the USA legaly then what right do they have to vote?

If im on a trip to the USA I wouldnt vote as its wrong, not my country. But the fact I can is just mad.
edit on 11-12-2013 by crazyewok because: (no reason given)


/shrug you're not in the USA but you vote with your opinion. Why do you think I have called for internet borders? Those people get deported and they live right next door and are a major trade partner, theyre also indigienous to the continent, you sit at your desk from across the world and profess to know whats best in our issues? LOL Isnt that a vote? It's not official, but isnt it a vote in the sense that you can sway public opinion?

Make sense? Sounds silly, I know. But its akin to me trying to tell people in Wales how to handle their issues from Texas. The people in Wales wouldn't like that very much. For whats its worth, I agree. I don't think anyone foreign to anothers homeland has any say there. Its still happening though whether you or I agree on that or not.
People should get showme's none the less. Folks need them here.

This whole thing cracks me up. This is just fear. They can't win elections in the future, so they have to find a boogey man to blame. Just like they have to find a boogey man to blame for their failed policies. Notice how their boogey men are always women, single women with children, the sick and disabled, the poor, the unemployed, people of color, liberals, did I leave anyone out? I would not want any of those groups to vote either if I were a republican.

That's an interesting thought. Which failed policies do you mean?

The more thought I gave this issues, the hotter I got. Always excuses for not doing the right thing. This is a major part of what is wrong with our current political status. Voting is an honor and a heavy responsibility. If a person is too lazy and uninspired to get a proper ID -- they are uninformed and easily bought off and I DO NO WANT THEM VOTING.

So many entitled people. Lord forbid they have to get off the couch to go take a driver's exam. I carry 3 forms of ID and have so most my adult life. It is not difficult to obtain these requirements but, I guess its better to sit back and blame the gov for being unmotivated.
