    I remember Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris "purging" 10,000 legal black voters in Dade county from the rolls "by mistake."

    I guess you forgot all that.

    I tend to agree with that, but I think Voter ID is a solution in search of a problem:

    The database shows 207 cases of other types of fraud for every case of voter impersonation.
    Who Can Vote? - A News21 2012 National Project

    So people are already committing fraud with elections. Maybe laws that guard against those 207 cases of other types of fraud is where to start.

    I agree with your position on Voter ID, but for different reasons

    Don't you have a chip on your credit card? Was there an option to implant it in your body?

    Why not stick to the facts rather than your hyperbolic attempts at metaphors?

    Never happened.

    But what does that have to do with Benghazi?

    I don't carry a credit card. I think they're all cut up. My ATM card does not appear to have a chip.

    The big difference is you are not required to have a credit card, and even if you do have one you are not required to carry it. You are saying everybody should have a national ID card with a microchip. You're one sentence from requiring everybody to carry it at all times. Since elections are carried out on a state by state basis, under what authority can the Feds require a state to accept such a card as valid ID? Basically, you want to create more government where it doesn't exist. Personally, I prefer no government where it is unnecessary.

    I'm not certain I have ever seen one poster with such a perfect one-two punch in sequential posts. After all, Obama being a "...muslim, kenyan socialist who despises the USA..." is not only a fact; its an axiom.

    Well if he is going to make 9/11 comparisons, then u have to ask... Why wasn't the Bush Admin ever grilled about failing to prevent an attack and invading Iraq following 9/11?

    Me too but the government continues to grow anyway. Better that the American taxpayers gets some value for their money, and being as certain as possible that their vote is taken seriously is a good place to start.

    Because that was the second attack on the WTC and the planning for it occurred during the Clinton Administration. If George Bush had been at all responsible you can bet that the Democrats would have been all over it.
