    That argument doesn't even make sense. That is the exact opposite of how it was intended.

    Where do they find these justices that somehow get everything backwards?

    Guys and gals, boys and girls, ladies and gentlemen, its very simple.

    We shoudl verify the citizenship status of voter registrations.

    Either do it by requiring folks to bring proof of citizenship at the time of registration, or make the states do it on their own time.

    But one way or the other we must verify that you have the ****ing right to vote.

    And before you go skeptical on 'Republican Caucus':


    Tennessee Department of State: Elections

    What does that say about the (1) training of the person who told her she couldn't use her old government ID and (2) the fact that it was only after she received publicity that any action was taken on her behalf?


    from the Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security site with requirements for obtaining a "Handgun Carry Permit"
    Effective July 1, 2005, all handgun permit applicants seeking a new permit must provide proof of U.S. Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Residency.
    So one of the items accepted as voter ID in the state doesn't require proof of citizenship - interesting, wouldn't you say
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”

    I understand where the left is coming from on this issue, I really do. I agree that the process of getting registered should be easy, and the process of voting should be easy. However, I fail to understand were it's required by law to be a US citizen on the federal level and it's required by law to be a resident of the state on the state level why it shouldn't be required to prove it in order to vote.

    Its clear that the purpose of this law in AZ was simply to keep people from registering to vote.
    Where's your proof?

    I now know that for at least my state, no citizenship verification takes place.

    British on a long holiday who rent an apartment could register to vote.

    Fine. Which databases do they use? [Hint: Don't waste too much time looking.]
