Interesting, the Democrats and now the ACLU think that voter ID is bad. Voter ID laws are intended to fight voter fraud. Makes you wonder what the liberals know about where their votes come from that the rest of us should be paying attention to.
"You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didnít have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, Iím allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

I'm not arguing about semantics. Call it a "fundamental right" or call it a "pig in a poke" for all I care. All I'm saying is that there is no guarantee of a blanket right to vote in the Constitution. Nothing you've provided has refuted that claim.I find it astonishing that anyone could argue that voting isn't a fundamental right.
The "male" and "twenty-one years of age" are obviously changed by the 19th and 26th amendments, respectively.Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.
