    I suggest that you try a little common sense. A valid ID should be one that is difficult to counterfeit. You just do not want to lose illegal votes going to the democrat party.

    [/QUOTE]=JasperL;1063905817]Well, heck, I guess to solve our current deficit, we just need to keep cutting tax rates till we close the shortfall. [QUOTE]

    Well, son. It would help if the idiots in congress (on both sides) and the idiot in the white house would curb pork barrel spending as well. Tax cuts increase revenue.....however when congress continues to spend a dollar and a half for every new dollar in revenue.....we will continue to have deficits. I don't know if you are just playing dumb or you are really that poor in math skills. The rest of your post was just lame taunts.

    I notice your evidence for "those few" without proper ID is nothing.

    It's one thing to reject evidence in favor of better or more convincing evidence, but quite another to reject studies presented in court, etc. for "my gut tells me."

    Do we want them going to the Republican party?

    If there was some evidence of anyone counterfeiting IDs to vote, then you'd have a point. But you can't point to such evidence...

    As I said, the GOP fiscal platform has as a cornerstone, "Yes, Virginia, there is a Tax Santa Clause!" That's a big reason why I'm not a republican and don't use the 'conservative' label.

    Tax cuts do not raise revenue. Believing that is believing in fiscal magic, fairy tales. It's not a basis for running a country.

    Re: SC allows Texas to use New Voter ID Law

    Setting tax rates is lot like setting prices for retail goods.
    Set them too high, and you lose customers and therefore revenue. Set them too low, and you have too thin of a profit margin and therefore lose revenue.
    Set taxes too high, and the incentive is to avoid paying them. Moreover, it discourages investment and enterprise, thus lowering revenues.
    Set taxes too low, and you don't have enough to operate the government.

    So, the question becomes, what is the best tax rate?
    It is not, the lower the tax rate the better. If that were so, then the best tax rate would be zero.

    What would it be worth to you if you knew wiggle your nose and no other party would ever be in competition with your own? Or that there was only one political ideology....yours. Do you think that such a government created out of that single ideology would always serve the best interests of the people it governed? Would your rights and general welfare always be protected? Would your life flourish more?

    If you could make a wish today that every person who was in opposition to your fundamental beliefs in all aspects of your life (government, religion, etc.) would instantly disappear...would you make that wish?

    Even Texas' government data says there are more than a "few" that lack restricted, now-required ID's


    After a year of outreach campaigns, snazzy ads and high-profile federal court fights, an estimated 600,000 to 744,980 Texas voters may still lack government-issued photo IDs now required under state law, according to Texas Secretary of State data and expert reports submitted by the U.S. Department of Justice in related litigation.

    Voters without proper IDs more likely in minority neighborhoods, reports find - Houston Chronicle
    “We just simply don’t know how to govern” - Rep. Steve Womack (R-AR) a member of the House Budget Committee
