    I suppose that means that apart from ID cards being issued there should be more checks made on absentee ballots in order to ensure as honest an election as possible. Everyone should have cconfidence in the process, and the 'nothing to see here' folks really aren't winning the debate.

    It's pretty cool that you managed to invent TWO straw men in just two short sentences! Nice job!

    "Proper ID" =/= Photo ID acceptable under Texas' voting laws. Can you show me anywhere in the rules for implementing centralized medical records that there is a requirement for every patient to produce a state or federally issued Photo ID with current address, that isn't a college ID or several other forms of photo ID with a persons name, photo and/or address, and without such ID, no records can be established, perhaps the person not treated? Of course not.

    Also, who claimed that getting such an ID is "impossible?" No one. It's difficult, burdensome, especially as about 1/3 of Texas counties have NO outlets that issue the special voting IDs, would require some people without a drivers license find a way to travel in excess of 150 miles round trip, the underlying documents can be difficult and/or expensive to acquire, etc. But only in rarest cases is getting such an ID "impossible."

    I think the point is, if nearly all "voter" fraud occurs through absentee ballots, and those are ignored, and almost NO "voter" fraud occurs through impersonation at the polls, anyone who believes that clean elections are the motivation of the new Photo ID rules is delusional.

    The purpose is to drive down the voting by democratic leaning demographics. We're all adults, we can recognize the obvious.

    How would voter ID effect "democratic leaning demographics"? Or you are saying A) much of their demographics are dead and buried or B) the democrat's demographic is a little too stupid to get the ID?

    Really. You think that's why mailing in ballots is popular.

    Why do you think difficulty in getting an id requires a person to be stupid?

    You already know the answer Grant.
    That's why yer in denial.
    Or you are saying A) much of their demographics are dead and buried or
    The Dems are dead and buried moronic nonsense from the bottom of Nixon's deck of cards.
    B) the democrat's demographic is a little too stupid to get the ID?
    And then you finish by calling Democrats stupid--
    none of this moronic spew will change the current GOP SCOTUS that is fed up with 21st century high tech Jim Crow .

    You could be the Democratic poster boy for this anti ID campaign. Any living person who doesn't know how to get an id can have it explained. If that doesn't do the trick then perhaps it's just as well they stayed home in order that the best available people be elected, rather than relying on party loyalty.

    You feel a little uncomfortable in answering the question? Why not give it a go anyway.
    The Dems are dead and buried moronic nonsense from the bottom of Nixon's deck of cards.
    Nixon? Why not get back on the topic?

    You've just proven my point for me.
