    I think you missed a few exclamation points.

    But really, no reason to argue with you. That PA Republican believed that voter fraud was rampant in PA and that it favored the Democrats. He was a s wrong as the nitwits of the other side who were screaming that voter laws would be gazillions of people being turned away at the polls because in their lifetime they could never be bothered to pick up government issued photo ID.

    But, on the up side, the Voter ID debate is the one time where liberals agree with me that Government is inefficient and too expensive.

    Anyone in the GOP who doesn't recognize the fact that the GOP has close to zero support from Blacks in the USA Is out of touch with reality

    Does anyone have any idea why so few Blacks support the GOP/




    "Better days are coming." ~ But not for today's out of touch, running out of time, GOP
    That's because the GOP stands for earning one's own way in life rather than living off the government teat. And Obama's minions would rather suck the teat.
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    I agree that some of those issues are not specific to Blacks. However, others are split on them where Blacks are not so much on those issues.
    Well, there was a solid 10-15% that have always been voting GOP...and it's growing a bit. Most of those issues are not specific to the black community, so in reality, they are not black issues. As more and more of us realize the impact that the welfare state has had on our community...and we realize that we've been voting for Democrats for 60 years and our communities still suck....we'll begin looking for a different path.

    The reality is that not having an ID disenfranchises you. Plain and simple, if you are not participating enough in American society to already have one, then you are disenfranchised.

    Actually I understated what you tried to do.

    Going overboard mischaracterizing what people say hardly serves your cause.

    Figures I have seen indicate in 208 and 12 Dems got over 90% of the vote - in some communities even more than 95%.

    You and I agree on one thing: the welfare state has hurt many in the Black community. The question I then ask and am bothered by is how much would the community be hurt by an end to that same welfare state?

    Not true. The Huffington Post article does not give anything to back up it's estimated 700,000 number. And even if we were to accept that number it would still be people who do not have ID by their own choice. I repeat. Nobody is disenfranchised by Voter ID laws.

    Why are you claiming that black people are too stupid to get a photo ID?

    Why are you claiming I claimed things I never claimed? Save your inflammatory BS for someone else.
