    do me a favor, give me a link of the cases of fraud that made these laws necessary. maybe voter fraud was very rampant and I just haven't seen the data. I can be convinced. But remember the GOP guy in Pennsylvania during the election? Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Mike Turzai (R) said “Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation - abortion facility regulations - in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done."

    And btw, how would you know the right side of anything?

    IOW, put people on welfare, outright and do away with the revenue to pay for it, at the same time.

Only when folks are suddenly required to vote only once, only in their district/state of residence and only as themselves, in any given election, does this draconian ID requirement become an issue.
    This is complete BULL$?!9. Why are you fright-wingers afraid of a National ID card? Why the phony gimmicks under the guise of the 10th/civil war amendment? You know why.

    I'm burned out and it really doesn't matter what you and I think ... first we'll see what the courts say, and if these laws are allowed to stand, we'll see if it backfires on the GOP ... given the demographic changes taking place, voter suppression is all the GOP has ... you have to go for broke, and I think broke is what will happen in the end ... a new GOP will have to created, one more moderate, although still conservative ... the tea party and politicians kissing their asses have done some serious damage to the GOP ... we'll see ... good night everyone ...

    Same content, same misquoting, same deceit, you want to eliminate the middle class, your policies put people on welfare, your congressional reps give billions in corporate welfare to their donors, you don't want to pay taxes so you can sabotage this POTUS's deficit

    When you cannot reply to the points raised then you simply change the subject? WTF difference do you see between a state ID and a national ID? Will "Obama IDs" not require the same level of supporting documentation as those now issued by the states?

    The point made was that a valid, state issued, photo ID is required for many things other than to vote and is the voter ID law in other states. Since requiring these IDs did not raise a fuss when applied to other functions or when Indiana enacted the same voter ID law, why is it suddenly an issue in Texas or North Carolina?

    how about lowering taxes on small business to let them actually employ people to a point where they can contribute.

    How about the government stop making it so damned expensive to operate a business?
