    The former (and future?) presidential candidate just made her most overtly political speech since stepping down as the nation's top diplomat

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ended a self-imposed political hiatus on Monday, slamming Republican-backed voter ID laws in a biting speech in San Francisco.

    Clinton said the Supreme Court in June had done serious damage with its landmark Voting Rights Act ruling, which cleared the way for states with a history of discrimination to tighten voting laws without federal approval. She also denounced voter ID laws pushed through by state legislatures controlled by the GOP, saying they were being justified as tools to fight the "phantom epidemic of voter fraud," but really just made it harder for minorities and the poor to exercise their voting rights. She referred to North Carolina's new election rules, which were signed into law by Republican Gov. Pat McCrory this week, as the "greatest hits of voter suppression."
    Democrats cannot win without voter fraud.....

    Also, if it's discrimination to ask for an ID to vote then it's discrimination to ask for an ID to drive.......

    The anti-ID law argument is retarded..... Not to mention its racist in nature to assume minorities a) don't have ID's or b) are unable to obtain ID's....

    Of course not one damn democrat/progressive has a goddamn logical retort for that...

    This is NOT and NEVER has been about voter ID, which I strongly support, and not just to shut up the fright wing. It is about early voting and same-day registration. It is about bastardizing the 10th amendment. It is about reinforcing recent political gains, which shouldn't be hard with their egregious remap. It is about taking the senate and then going for impeachment in 2015.

    Certainly the precedent is part of it...

    Our federal government has been on a mission to show "who's the boss" with their attempts and shots at the Tenth Amendment.. Of course 9 decide that.

    I agree that is part of it however, progressives depend on voter fraud and the votes of illegal aliens - they will fight for those votes tooth and nail.

    They need Mickey Mouse and Pedro to vote for them to vote early and often.

    And this is the dead giveaway to the GOP plan. What is the point of eliminating early voting? Where is the fraud there?

    92-Year-Old Who Once Faced Literacy Tests Sues North Carolina Over New Wave Of Voter Suppression | ThinkProgress

    When Rosanell Eaton was 21 years old and living in segregated North Carolina, she became one of the first African Americans in her county registered to vote, after successfully completing a literacy test that required her to recite the preamble to the Constitution. But now, at 92 years old, she faces new obstacles under the voter suppression law signed by Gov. Pat McCrory (R) Monday. For one thing, she may not qualify for the voter ID card required under the new law, because the name on her birth certificate is different from the name on her driverís license and voter registration card. Reconciling this difference will be a costly and time-consuming administrative endeavor. For another, she has participated in early voting since it was instituted in the state. Now, itís been cut back a week.

    But there has been little to no cases of voter fraud. How do we depend on something that does not exist?

    I find it comical that the GOP, libertarians, and the Tea Party have been crying about the government intruding in people's lives and yet they are the ones lately that have been doing it.

    She can still vote early, and she doesn't need a photo ID until the 2016 election. Should be enough time, don't you think?

    I do not understand the resistance to requiring a photo ID to Vote. Here are only SOME of the things that require a Photo ID. What makes Voter ID so evil?

    Grocery stores ( if you are using Credit Card )
    Gas stations (when you are buying anything using Credit card)
    Liquor store.( Even if you do not buy and accompany with others)
    Dance Clubs and Bars
    Mail pick up from FedEx, UPS or any others
    Public Library (for getting library Card )
    Casino (even if you do not play)
    Banks ( if you want to withdraw money or check balance)
    Airport
    Any stores where you buy using Credit Card.
    Fast Food places (if you use credit card)
    Restaurants (if you use credit card)
    Any corporate offices ( if you are visiting anyone, for Visitor ID)
    Coffee shops ( if you use credit card)
    Renting anything for outdoor Jet Skis, Boats, Canoe, etc
    Car Rentals ( You need Driverís license for sure)
    Any theme parks like Disney, etc for rentals
    Any outdoor activity like Sky diving, Bunge Jumping, etc
