    I'm entirely in favor of that. I think that people ought to be able to register to vote at the DMV, assuming they can prove they are American citizens. That's great. They get a legal ID to show at the polling place and get to register at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Appeals court reinstates Texas voter ID law

    Question Riskey...

    What is the difference between spending X amount of resources to run an ad on television aimed at getting people to vote for your favored candidate and spending X amount of resources to physically pick up and bus people to the polling place that are likely to vote for your favored candidate?

    Do you think money should be the only resource that is limited under the law? Or are you legally going to punish and restrict one type of resource (money) while allowing unlimited usage of other resourecs (like ones time)? Should there be similar limits on the amount of volunteer time that a campaign can utilize or can be done in support of a camapaign?

    BIG BUCKS from God knows where fund political campaigns. It works! Think about that people. Spending millions and millions on a particular candidate's campaign is very effective. Does anyone disagree? Corporations don't have to vote, the 1% don't have to vote, they simply dump millions into an election to greatly insure favorable odds and in doing so they buy the person elected. This isn't rocket science, but it seems to me that one hell of a lot of you are all worried about the illegal Mexican vote when it is campaign financing that most often determines elections and most often buys the politician.

    It is a bit ironic that Republicans are the ones primarily concerned with voter identification, yet it is also Republicans who are primarily unsupportive of campaign finance reform. Make sure the illegals don't vote, but don't worry about who buys the election. WTF?

    Recently all of the GOP members of the Senate voted against a Constitutional amendment that proposed:



    But, by God, there had better not be anybody voting that shouldn't vote.

    I've found that the REAL reason that the Democrats are so up in arms over the Supreme court's decision on Citizens United is because they no longer have a monopoly on massive amounts of dirty money leveraging elections in their favor.

    Unions have been doing what you just described for DECADES

    Ask the judges from the OP.


    I'm not a judge, bro.

    You're saying I need a license to utilize my first amendment rights.

    You're argument FOR this is that you need a license to utilize your second amendment rights.

    In between that, what you FAIL to see is that it's not about the license, in the 2A debate, but about being able to be identified as a person of sound mind with no criminal record, IE, someone less likely to use a gun for nefarious ends.

    Now, I'm no anti 2A guy. But I gotta tell you, I KNOW you can produce a better argument than that.


    In the meantime, I'm not so much again the CONCEPT of voter ID, as I am with the OP's determination of success, lol.

    The judges are ONLY going ahead with this, because, and I quote, "It's too late now", lol.



    Can you SMELL the win, lol?

    It says a three judge panel overruled a single judge. How is that evidence of, "It's unconstitutional, which the majority of all the judges who have seen it agree"?

    That's how we do it in Ohio. It's called the "motor voter" law. Our republican governor thinks it's just peachy.
