    now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws
    Please. Show me a credible source where ANY Republican Senator or Congressman advocates re-enacting Jim Crow laws.

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

    It's called hyperbole. As a conservative, I'd think you'd be familiar with it.

    Is this another round of liberal denial ? Aren't you folks finally waking up to the fact that OPM is running out ?
    Do you know that most of those who pay no income taxes are because President Bush's policies? Why those who pay no Federal income taxes should not be able to vote?

    Because he's an actual regressive and doesn't believe the most fundamental right that exists in democracy should be granted unless you happen to make enough money. He'll take grand stands on principle against government intrusion on our rights to free speech, owning guns, etc, but **** those poors they don't deserve a vote because they don't have enough money.

    How ridiculous. Talk about throwing the race card. Wasserman-Shultz is SO over the top. Yep. They should keep her. She makes the dems look as crazy as they are.

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."

    You are anti-democracy and pro-aristocracy.

    And again, you prove her point.

    And of course, in Indiana if you become the FIRST PERSON indicted on voter fraud charges, you become the Republican over-seer of elections and win the support of the governor (who decided not to run for president).

    Democracy is a bunch of welfare chumps voting for the person that will keep the checks coming to the mailbox and take money from the working folks to pay for it?

    That's democracy?

    Please note. I have not advocated that those who pay no income taxes have no vote. There's noting to advocate there. Its not a bill anywhere. We both know, I hope, that such is not going to happen. I do believe we'd be better if it were such, but again, not going to happen.

    And "Yes", I know that the Bush tax cuts took many off the income tax obligatory roles.

    However, the thread is about standards of proof in order to vote. None of these are draconian. In many states, the rules already are such. What is being advocated, and which bimbo Wasserman ****s is criticising, is basic voting integrity. With Republicans having won so many State Houses in 2010, it is a trend you better get used to.

    One man (or woman). One vote. What a concept !!
