Only dead people aren't able to catch him in his dishonest political games.

    As far a the Zavala Co case (voters about 8400) - if there is indeed a problem, which an article claims there is, the county is so small that any misconduct could be easily resolved. If that county is crooked, that is NOT an automatic form of evidence that the remaining 253 Texas Counties are guilty.

    It's naive to think that we live in a country that has a political system that is free of illegal activities. But what's been pointed out...in a lot of cases...the same conclusion that the Morris Article pointed out. And that's in my following post after the one you replied to. You might want to read it.

    What I won't accept is hysteria without evidence. The poster who I replied to offered very lame evidence. In fact, he post an article that he only read what he wanted in order to make his point, but it came back to bite him the ass because he didn't read the outcome of that article. The purpose of the article was actually a fact finding site, which in the end refuted Dick Morris' claims.

    The overall claims of vote tampering across the nation isn't a one sided situation. I have no love for either parties. And I want to see justice done wherever and to whomever has attempted or has altered our system in such a way to actually change outcomes. When I see such evidence that either side has committed an act to favor itself in elections. Then I'll say, "fry the bastards".
    I didnt read the article. Voter id laws are just common sense. There isnt one legit reason not to have one. It only makes the election more secure against voter fraud.

    Agreed

    Wrong, the SCOTUS has declared it constitutional

    You do realize that the SCOTUS has already upheld a near identical law in Indiana

    Then you don't read the fineprint of these laws.
    I would expect that from a low-info voter .

    Good, no problem. Then the taxpayers won't mind paying whatever is necessary to ensure that all eligible voters obtain the necessary ID's without discriminating against certain minorities or groups of citizens.

    That might entail providing transportation to the elderly to a county election office to get their IDs. That might also include helping them getting a copy of their SS cards or birth certificates needed to get a State Photo ID.

    That work for you?

    Then it shouldn't be too much to ask that a high-info voter like yourself fill us dummies in.

    The key words in yer statement are "near identical".
    The Indiana law is constitutional because it is not nearly identical to the 21st century Jim Crow Texas law.

    Gov. Pence of Indiana is one of the few GOP governors with any credibility.
    Another one is Gov. Sandoval of Nevada .

    Sure, why not. We are $17,500,000,000,000 in debt. Whatever amount this would cost is insignificant next to that stack. Plus if these voting rights are as sacred as the left believes they are, then removing ANY chance of voter fraud should be at the top of the leftist list. Yet its not even on the list. Besides, liberals are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on this years election. If getting people IDs so they can vote for your leftist allies is that important, you guys should pay for it.
