    Again, TX gets it right. Liberals aren't going to steal an election in TX by having the dead vote
    Once again (this gets so old), there is not one iota of evidence that there is widespread voter fraud in the country OR in Texas.

    To the contrary, you are in favor of the law because it means that it will hurt your opposition party and help your party. It is you who are the one with an ethics and morality problem, seems to me. It is wrong to pass a law that results in widespread discrimination among a minority class, esp. when it has been expressed by GOP leaders that that is the purpose of the law.

    You should be ashamed of yourself for willingness to take away citizens' right to vote.

    It sounds simple on the face of things, but having been poor, I know it is not a simple thing for many people to get a photo ID. The cost, for one thing, is prohibitive for some. THAT IS THE SAME THING AS CHARGING PEOPLE TO VOTE.

    As a moral and ethical thing, a citizen should not have to pay to vote. It's a citzenship right, even if you are dirt poor, without a dime.

    You are in questionable company of years past of Jim Crow laws...the kind of people that favored those laws. That is who you are, you have now explained.

    The Democrat party was responsible for those very Jim Crow laws you Libs are apparently so fond of.

    AND they filibustered the 1964 voting rights act.

    I'm pretty sure Conservative is not a Democrat.

    Jim Crow laws were a creation of the Democrat party.

    Re: SC allows Texas to use New Voter ID Law

    It's about the minority GOPs suppressing the majority Dems based on race, ethnicty, wealth and the belief that their votes should count more.

    With a 5-4 GOP SCOTUS upholding gerrymandering and jim crow--a Senate frilibustering the last VRA which passed 97-0.

    That's how far back to the 1870s we've gone in suppressing Black and poor voters.

    You have put it much more eloquently however .

    Re: SC allows Texas to use New Voter ID Law

    Jim Crow was started by Southern Conservatives--the party of today's GOP where these laws are coming from--
    only today's GOP is far more advanced--
    as we discuss settled history one more time -

    Re: SC allows Texas to use New Voter ID Law

    Once again, Jim Crow began in the south.
    With the very same conservatives who are now in the GOP.
    The current GOP southern connies making these 21st century high-tech Jim Crow laws.
    Hope that helps with settled history .

    You continue to mean southern cons--with the four great spikes in the KKK--1870s, 1920s, 1960s and now--all in the south and Indiana with cons.

    AND they filibustered the 1964 voting rights act.
    And then became Nixon GOPs in 1968 and 1972 with Nixon's southern strategy.
    Have you forgotten Thurmond and the Dixiecrats running 3rd party against Truman in 1948--doubt it ?

    It is quite interesting how smart liberals tell us their base is yet apparently many cannot get an photo id to vote even though they need a photo ID to do almost everything else these days. If they want to vote badly enough and if they are smart enough they will get their ID.
