    Re: Supreme Court strikes down Arizona voter ID citizenship law

    I agree with the court, federal voting laws suck.

    “It’s extremely inadequate,” Horne said. “It’s essentially an honor system. It does not do the job.”

    “Well,” answered Justice Sonia Sotomayor, “that’s what the federal system decided was enough.”

    I have a friend that is a Permanent Resident of the United States.

    She can register to vote and affect our elections, even though she is not a citizen.

    This is not a good thing.

    Call your state election commission to find out.

    It states the issue simply. The constitution gives the power to congress to determine election laws. If they decide that the honor system is enough, then thats the law. If I was Arizona, I would declare independence.

    Re: Supreme Court strikes down Arizona voter ID citizenship law

    Well, here is the crux of the problem - Are we going to disenfranchise thousands of legitimate voters if, say, 10 ineligible voters voted?

    Voter fraud? Yea, I am against it, but not at the expense of kicking our own citizens to the curb in the process.

    Do you agree that we should verify the citizenship of people when they register to vote?
