    Who do you think Obama's Goldman Sachs is riding with this time round? Then you can look up Gore and the Demos with Florida......even before there was recount. Before they took the vote! Also what does it matter about if such is in response to Church Groups. What would you call Louis Farrahkan and his Temple? Considering they Vote Democratic? What was the name of Reverend Wrights Church that most vote Democratic?

    Did you forget about Gary Indiana where there is a Church on every Corner and a Church in the middle of Da Block! Do you think they vote Republican?

    Btw thats why I put the other link from Newsmax.

    "You conservatives"? I'm automatically a conservative by being the messenger? Sounds like a typical mindless partisan reaction.

    The messanger of what exactly....that there are hacks out there that can't the difference between the right to vote and getting into a convention?

    If you're non-partisan you might want to find better sources for news...just sayin.

    It sure is. Desperation makes for strange bedfellows.

    Re: You’ll Need an ID to Prove You’re a Democrat but Not to Vote

    I'm responding to those that required a source for illegal voting.

    Voter ID laws are good protection against fraud - The Washington Post

    Mentioned in this article was this paragraph:

    In fact, I presented this information to the Kansas legislature in January, and the numbers were extensively reported by the media. The 221 incidents of voter fraud included absentee ballot fraud, impersonation of another voter and other crimes. The vast majority of the cases were never investigated fully because Kansas county attorneys lack the time and resources to pursue voter fraud at the expense of other criminal investigations. Of the approximately 30 cases that were fully investigated, seven resulted in prosecutions. All seven yielded convictions.
    Part of the problem is that voter fraud is not given priority given existing case logs by district attorneys. If cases are not investigated throughly and if are not prosecuted if investigated sure it will seem that there is very little problem with voter fraud.


    Observe another paragraph which states:

    But we don’t have to rely on such inaccurate estimates; actual numbers are available. According to the 2010 Census, there are 2,126,179 Kansans of voting age. According to the Kansas Division of Motor Vehicles, fully 2,156,446 Kansans age 18 and older have valid driver’s licenses or non-driver IDs. In other words, there are more photo IDs in circulation than there are eligible voters in Kansas. It is simply incorrect to assert that there are tens of thousands of voters in Kansas, or any state, without photo identification.
    There seem to be more ID issued in Kansas than voters by a small margin so that seems to disqualify the idea that there is about 10% without any ID at all.

    The figure on DLs doesn't take into account non-citizens with DLs (which I'm sure there are many people in Kansas who have a DL, but are not citizens). Nationwide, I'd say that there probably are thousands with no ID, but most of them should be able to get one without a problem.

    Yes, there is voter fraud, but I've yet to see it proven that there is widespread voter impersonation which is the only type of fraud that would be addressed by requiring ID. If the GOP, or Democrats for that matter, truly want to address voter fraud, there's many places to look. Start with absentee ballots. Voter ID laws fix next to nothing.

    The type of fraud that it would counter would be where a person votes for other specific people on a list that is given to him each at a different voting prescient. I know that the other methods of fraudulent voting would have to be done by different methods I want to be thorough.

    Re: You’ll Need an ID to Prove You’re a Democrat but Not to Vote

    How is it that there is suddenly a connection between needing an ID to get into the DNC and needing one to vote?

    And, how is it that requiring or not requiring an ID has become such a big deal anyway?

    There is no evidence of voter fraud due to not requiring an ID, and

    There is none that requiring an ID would somehow skew the vote or disenfranchise anyone.

    How many people are there who have no form of ID anyway, and those few who don't should have one anyway.

    Moreover, people who have no bank accounts, no credit cards, do everything in cash, don't drive cars, that no doubt >1% of the population, how many vote anyway?

    This is a non issue from both sides.
