    IMO, this would have resonated more if they had saved this effort for the 2016 presidential election, since an awful lot of people don't bother to vote in the midterms. Maybe this time will be different, since you practically have your choice of things to be angry about - immigration; ACA; hostilities all over the planet; Ebola; various scandals; and several others. Probably not though - the average person on the street just isn't interested, since they feel they can't do anything about it anyway!
    Good evening, Polgara.

    So, wouldn't getting an ID be an advantage to the urban poor, even if, as is being claimed, voter fraud is minimal?

    Edit: and don't they need a picture ID if they get food stamps or Medicaid? We're talking about the poor here, aren't we?
    Agreed. However helping the poor better their lives does not play into Jasper's motivations.

    Again, TX gets it right. Liberals aren't going to steal an election in TX by having the dead vote
    You crack me up... no one has ever stolen an election with "dead votes".... It would be stupid to try such a stunt and nearly impossible to succeed at it.

    You steal elections by suppressing the vote. Voter ID, not enough voting machines in "undesirable" districts or cutting voting hours to impede certain "types" are all very efficient methods of stealing elections....

    It may be time to round up a posse (that's Texas talk) to chase the pussy (that's the Republican party in general, but in this case Texas republicans) that feels the need to suppress the vote because the appeal of their politics is waning...

    I am even for giving them Free IDs.....as then it leaves the left with no excuses whatsoever. Ginsberg dissented and left remarks. Hopefully people from the Right will respond back to her and give her some things to think about.....while she prepares for Pasture.....and then becoming irrelevant for the rest of her days. As it is written....let it be so!

    Congrats Texas!
    North Carolina not only gives free voter ID's, we have now started a roving DMV bus to go to underserved communities so they don't even have to go to the local DMV office to get one.

    Go to this web page (NC State Board of Elections) and click on the grey bar that says DMV Mobile Unit Schedule October 2014 which is updated monthly.

    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    You're fond of making assertions that are just contrary to ALL the evidence. It's a bizarre thing to read, really. Just a complete disregard for facts....

    For the record, the best data I've seen is there are about 203 million have a drivers license, about 235 million over 18, so more than 32 million do not drive. And you don't need a photo ID or a bank account to cash checks, and lots of people don't pay with checks, which is why if you go to, say, a utility company around the end of the month, there's a long line of people there to pay in CASH, and landlords accept cash, so does Walmart, etc. But nice try!

    Re: SC allows Texas to use New Voter ID Law

    Why is this a partisan issue at all ?

    Lobs should be 100 percent behind Texas's law.

    I can only think of one good reason why they would oppose it and its has nothing to do with the BS manufactured narrative of " voter suppression ".

    So you think it's impossible that the poor or elderly could possibly have any trouble with this. Ok then!
