    I dunno, maybe I am different, but I would rather extend a right ro a few who might not have earned it than take it away from those that have. Kinda like I don't think outlawing guns because a few misuse them is a good idea. But then again, I am consistant in my beliefs.

    I also don't beleive in trying to affect the outcome of an election by disenfranchising people. I will save that for you guys.

    No one. It is however more likely they will not have IDs, and it is harder for them to get out and attain one.

    no, it's mostly the very old and extremely poor who are affected. but as i posted previously, if they put a photo on SS cards, there wouldn't be a problem. do it every census, and everyone gets a free photo SS card. problem solved.

    "You guys." How very Barack Obama of you.
    Anyway, I'm not calling the elderly and handicapped lazy. If it seemed I was, it was unintentional. However, if a handicapped or elderly person can go outside their home to vote, they can do the same to get an id correct? In addition, that is all a fallacy anyway because to receive the title "disabled" you have to be designated that by Medicare. And if you're old, you are most likely receiving Social Security. You need an ID of some sort, a Social Security Number, and Birth Certificate for those. So there goes your disabled and old argument. So now, we're once again down to the lazy people.

    I'm fine with showing my driver's license to prove I am who I say I am.

    However, these new laws coming in on an election year is OBVIOUSLY an attempt to swing the vote. Voting is a right no matter how much one person thinks it should be a privilege. It isn't a privilege that should be taken away from anyone. It is a right for all citizens in this nation.

    Since 2000, there have only been 10 recorded cases of voter fraud in the country. T-E-N!

    We should not enact any laws like this until January 2013. That would be the best option as it would take away the obvious control that bureaucrats are trying to take.

    and it is harder for them to register. It is harder for them to go to the grocery store. But it's hardly as if we make old people run a gauntlet to get a photo ID.
