    Re: In South Carolina, attorney general says voting rights at risk

    The right to vote is an extremely important right. I understand the desire to make it as legitimate as possible but that can't be done in a way that makes it harder.

    I really have a problem with a guy that had no problem with thugs outside of a polling place with nightsticks telling me this though.

    I find it funny that the two major parties have implemented all kinds of rules preventing people from gaining ballot access, and we are worried about ID's suppressing peoples votes.

    Can you give us some examples of these rules that have been implemented by the Democratic Party?

    1. Your argument that Holder "had no problem"? (observation: missing).

    2. How many "thugs" were there? (answer: 2).

    3. How many of those "thugs" lived in the building they were standing outside of? (answer: 1).

    4. How many nightsticks were there? (answer: 1).

    5. How many of the "thugs" were served an injunction? (answer: 1 -- the 1 that had the nightstick and did not live there).

    6. How many of the "thugs" received no legal action at all? (answer: 1 -- the 1 that did not have a nightstick and did live there).

    7. How many people were prevented from voting?

    That is a contradictory statement seeing how qualification is a condition.


    NOt Having enough money to purchase a photo ID would not sustain a constitutional challenge if that resulted in the disenfrachisement of voters.
    A photo ID is cheap and in some states that ID is free..The idea that a ID to vote or is a disenfranchisement of voters is laughable. I guess its nice to know that the left think the elderly and minorities either too stupid to walk down to a DMV to get a free ID or too stupid to save up 5 or 10 bucks to get a ID.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I looked at both your links. I didn't find your response in either of them. Perhaps you could spell it out in your own words?

    the two major parties are obviously trying to control who is on the ballot and have done a remarkable job in that regard in some states. Leaving out other ideologies is a form of voter suppression.

    So, you think the elderly should walk 5 -30 miles in order to vote (to get an ID).

    You also think that the elderly and minorities should pay 5 or 10 bucks to vote (to get an ID).

    Interesting type of democracy you've laid out there.

    But tell us... to get an ID, you just walk to the DMV and cough up 5 or 10 bucks, right? That's all there is to it? You just tell them what your name is, and where you live, and they print all that out and stick your picture on it and you're done, right?

    You don't have to bring any, like, documentation with you, right? Documentation that some legal citizens may not have, right?

    96-year-old Chattanooga woman denied voter ID -- The Associated Press

    Ninety-six-year-old Dorothy Cooper has been voting for more than seven decades, so the Chattanooga resident was eager to get a photo identification card when she heard it would be required for the next election.

    On Monday, Cooper gathered a rent receipt, a copy of her lease, her voter registration card and her birth certificate and went to a Driver Service Center to get the free identification card offered by the state as part of the new voter identification law. But the clerk refused to give Cooper a card because her birth certificate carried her maiden name, Dorothy Alexander, and she didn't have a copy of her marriage certificate, she told the Chattanooga Times Free Press [...]
