    And yet it happens in places like Chicago every time.

    Many many stories.
    I have to repeat what you wrote "In reality lots of things are minor or happen infrequently, this however does not mean we should ignore it." This is a statement that is not conservative. It's a pro big government statement. Think of the result of applying it to everything that is minor or infrequent as your statement states. Note that monitoring a potential problem is not equivalent to ignoring it.

    Re: Photo ID to vote?

    I voted 'No' even though Texas passed it's voter picture ID legislation recently.

    I have a gut feeling, after thinking about retirement homes, students, military members, absentee ballots, etc. that voters will be disenfranchised equally on both sides. There's just too many ways to cancel a vote with the picture ID requirement.

    Used to be people were taken on their word. This new law basically calls all of us liars.

    Yes it is hotly debated but fact are facts. Most convictions were Democrats. End of story.
    You have to first have a story before you can say "end of story". You have nothing except a rightwing agenda to disenfranchise voters who do not vote the way you want them to vote.

    I see the issue with absentee ballots, which should certainly be an exception (just have them show their ID to register to vote and request their absentee ballot, I've done it on board ship a couple of times and I'll be doing it again this next election, possibly a couple of times). If a person has registered to vote and is expecting an absentee ballot/ballot by mail, then they should tell someone if they didn't get their ballot within a set time frame.

    But if you are showing up to the actual polling booth, then why not require ID? Most people have them, even if they are old, students, and the poor. And those who don't should be able to get them for free if they are required for voting, and the person cannot afford them.

    Now, I don't necessarily think that this should be a federal law, but I absolutely don't have any issue with it being in state laws.

    Asking for a photo id is now a regulatory hurdle?

    Good, maybe it will keep the apathetic morons who have no clue from voting.

    So what? Everything I do is not "conservative" we are most of us someplace in the middle.

    We already have to show id for many things, it is part of life in the us. Has nothing to do with big government, or even more. The structure is already in place.

    Nice try, trying to play the "well your not conservative card" moronic fallacy argumentation.

    Since when is a New York Times article a "right wing agenda?" This has nothing to do with the ridicules claims of disfranchisement, it is about legally providing proof you are a citizen to vote, nothing more.

    As has been documented, it is for 5 million voters.

    Which is of course the motive for the push by Republicans for the extra voter requirements, to limit votes by the poor, seniors, minorities, and students.

    At least you were honest enough to admit it.

    Actually the story says there is no real evidence of any significant voter fraud.

    But you know that well because you have not been able to present any here as well.
