    In California it is illegal aliens that flock to vote by mail because you can register and vote and there are no checks yo make sure you are of legal age or here legally.

    Voting is a privilege that that should be closely monitored to insure that voters can at least read English.

    Today there are so many people who are high school graduates that are illiterate it's not funny and most of them are minorities because they come from one parent families and that one parent is also illiterate.

    Most high school graduates these days don't have any clue about the Constitution.

    I registered to vote by mail when I retired and moved back to California. I did it over the Web and it's been almost 4 years and they didn't check a damn thing.
    I could have been a member of the Taliban anf they would never know or care for that matter.
    Yes. Exactly. We need some kind of test to ensure that they are upstanding hardworking citizens. Since everybody knows that freedom isn't free maybe there needs to be a fee for the privilege of voting, you know to pay for the testing.

    An interesting read, to be sure. Seems the majority were simply not registered. I truly believe that instead of congressional hearings there should have been legal proceedings...trials...with both sides submitting evidence. I stand by what i said...if someone was found guilty of denying someone their legal right to vote they should be jailed.

    Seems to me though there was an awful lot of people that were not properly registered or registered twice. That also should be looked into.

    Finally...about a third of the page you cited mentioned voter intimidation by police (none of the information mentioned the military votes were denied...I wont say that INVALIDATES your source, but it sure makes it look a little questionable and one sided). It IS interesting that 'What If...? likes your posting about voter intimidation by police officers at polling locations, but ridicules the concern about 'scawy' people with nightsticks as being intimidating.

    yeah...bias is still a problem, isnt it?

    Wasn't that the case that was dropped by the Bush DOJ because "voter intimidation" cases requires that there be intimidation? The case was dropped because nobody came forward to say that they were intimidated.

    Should they just have went ahead with the case when it was apparent that no crime was committed?

    An announcement like that works both ways. If the election is called for anyone, why would anyone vote. If I am not mistaken the race in Florida was first called for Gore before the polls in the panhandle were closed. A portion of the panhandle is in the Central timezone which includes Pensacola and Panama City and usually votes Republican.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It was dropped by the OBAMA DOJ.

    Really, MrVicchio? You're going to use two Black men trying to scare off voters and equate it to robo-calls that reached thousands of potential voters both Blacks and Whites (but majority Black) to champion your call to "justice"? Really?

    That's low even for you.

    The DOJ decided not to pursue charges because there was no proof of any prosecutable offenses.

    This was decided BEFORE President Obama was inaugurated and well BEFORE Eric Holder became the Attorney General.

    So we have a dispute between the parties about whether this strategy was used or not. However ...



    I don't particularly care about the charges of whether one race or demographic was favored over another. What I do care about is that voters were flat out lied to, and that sort of thing should be prosecuted as fraud.

    Maryland vote has been corrupt for years, hell, maybe even decades. But it isn't in favor of the GOP I can tell you that.
