    The issue of military using absentee ballots is a different situation. Totally different.
    you have twice now accused the GOP of trying to 'disenfranchise' 'certain voters', without bothering to clarify exaclty 'what' they are doing, or 'who' they are trying to disenfranchise.

    I don't want talking points either. I want specific details on exactly WHO and WHAT.

    Is that too difficult for you? Would you prefer, as usual, to simply parrot whatever your liberal handlers spoon feed you?

    Agreed. God forbid a college student actually have to get an absentee ballot, or make the effort to vote early or by mail. Is this some gargantuan challenge when they have family back in the home state who are likely paying thousands for the kid to go to screwl to begin with ?

    Liberals, forgive me, but its time to stop acting like everyone is so ****ing stupid. Let's get the system honest and clean and you can finally learn to play by the rules. You'll feel better about yourself as you grow older, knowing that you matured from being such a scumbag in your youth.

    For the hundredth time, look at my post. I posted the same thing twice with a clear and concise explanation, and it was blown off. Please go ahead and take a look.

    sorry...I did not read back that far, as my questions (twice) was posted several pages after that. A link to the post might make it easier next time you're asked about something you may have already answered in a thread... just sayin.

    Your post:

These proposals are costly and could disenfranchise hundreds of thousands if not millions of voters, but most of those affected are more likely to vote for Democrats. Republicans have invoked the specter of voter fraud to justify the restrictions, but the type of voter fraud these laws are designed to address are extremely rare — the Bush administration, despite pursuing the issue vigorously, never produced more than a handful of voter fraud prosecutions."

    Man I seem to be finding myself defending this woman a lot
    OK... lets address those one at a time...

    1... I see nothing wrong with requiring ID to be able to vote at a polling station. I was taken aback in PA the first time I voted here after moving, when I simply told them who I was, signed a register the first time, and was given my ballot. No ID check, nothing. I could have been anyone, and they never would have known. As for stopping voting in colleges, I see nothing wrong with that either. If the soldier in other countries have to cast absentee ballots, why can't college students who are away from home?

    2... Pretty much covered in my first response. I have no idea what your personal definition of onerous is, but if it's showing a valid form of ID, then you're barking up the wrong tree.

    3... Requiring voters to prove who they are by showing valid ID is not even remotely close to preventing them from voting. It would ensure their eligibility. You know, like proving your a natural born citizen so you can run for President?

    4... You have GOT to be kidding! The alleged 'millions of college students' that would be affected... would be Democrats? No Republican college students would be hit by this? Really? You don't happen to have any hard numbers to back that up, do you?


    That's almost a bigger FAIL for you than the other thread. :

    How is it totally different?

    Both the Soldier living in the Barracks/On Base and the Student on a College Campus are "Non-Residents" of the state/district that they are currently residing in, but are allowed to cast a ballot obviously. (Granted the Student is out of State or Away from his home town area).

    Yet this is handled much differently.
    Both groups are typically "Young Americans".
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Dear DNC. Please keep this woman in charge of your organization. Because she is making you look amazingly stupid.

    Hyperbole.

    Reminds me of "Obama is a socialist."

    "Poor people shouldn't be able to vote." Another winning slogan for the GOP!

    You guys are hilarious. Someone accuses you of keeping people from voting and you get all defensive. Then you list off people you think shouldn't be allowed to vote.

    Why don't you tell me how everyone being able to vote is good for the country? Can you?
