    I think the constitution's mere existence carries with it the government's responsibility to ensure that the rights contained within are not infringed.

    Do you NOT think the government has a responsibility to make sure that peoples' rights aren't infringed?

    Sure, but every vote cast illegally disenfranchises one legal voter but Democrats oppose policing the voter rolls and have, at every turn, promote programs that end up giving voter registration card to people who shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    Back when I was a social worker we were under orders to get voter registration cards from everyone who came into our office regardless of whether they said they were already registered, or even if we knew they were not US citizens.

    Democrats are corrupt, plain and simple. They really don't care if the voting rolls of clean so long as they know the illegal votes are mostly for Dems.

    Yes I do. However, how is a requirement for ID infringing the right to vote if it is not an infringement on the right to own a firearm?

    You're going to have to find where I made that argument re: firearms. Or, for that matter, re: voting.

    I'm not accusing you of making an argument. I'm asking a question. How is it disenfranchisement, or an infringement in the case of one right....but not in another?
