    someone unable to get an ID or not needing one is probably not someone we want voting

    great point-libs tell us that if JUST ONE CRIME IS SOLVED OR STOPPED BY making every single gun owner register his guns all that bureaucracy and intrusion is worth it

    hey, if they can't vote...then they shouldn't pay any taxes either.

    I can live with that, and if they don't pay more in taxes than what they use the converse works as well

    that would be the attitude if one based their desire for others to vote based on their own narrow interests in suppressing the vote to benefit their own selfish desires and highly partisan interests.

    My son went down to the DMV for one and it's only like $15. Democrats can sell an extra bag of crack to get the money for that.

    Nah that would be the attitude of someone who doesn't think uninformed idiots should be imposing their stupidity on smart people. its just as much a partisan hack position to support the mentally incompetent or terminally ignorant voting as those of us who understand that suc voters tend to support your party

    I don't deny I advocate stuff that benefits my agenda: what is dishonest and silly is your pretending you're different

    that makes no sense, as crack dealers are small-business entrepreneurs. this makes them Republicans.

    Actually you express an elitist viewpoint which is based on hating your chosen enemy. I want EVERYBODY to vote who is eligible regardless how or who they vote for.
