    Re: Are you for or against vote ID to vote?

    IMO, anyone who cannot pull themselves together enough to obtain the necessary ID is not a responsible citizen. I simply do not trust such a person and I do not want them engaged in a political process which they obviously do not take very seriously.

    For cripes sake! What sort of ne'er-do-well assh#le cannot produce a valid form of identification? Not only should such a person not be allowed to vote, but they should get a swift kick in the groin to boot!

    Totally for it. We need ID for everything else.

    Why in the world should Democrat voters be any more likely to lack identification than Republican voters, be they poor, students or the elderly? Is it your contention that Democrat voters are much more likely to be ass-backward social retards than Republican voters? Say it isn't so!

    That made no sense. Let's make it simple. Anything that we can do to enforce the rule of law is, in general, a good thing, and leave it at that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

Neither of these women appeared to have any cognitive deficits. I strongly suspect that they had ballots mailed to them, for early voting purposes, and someone else kindly "voted for them", then sent the ballots in. I have no proof that there was fraud, but I find it a little more than coincidental that two elderly ladies, in my small precinct, who just happened to go vote at the same time I was there, incidentally forgot that they had already voted.
    And none of the new voter ID laws would stop that kind of abuse - assuming it's happening at all.

    Voter registration and ID? Sure.
    Photo ID? No.

    In my eara, you didn't get an SS card until you needed one (like your first job). Now, they are issued immediately, is that correct?
    my boys got theirs 6-10 weeks after birth.

    I suppose that the ones who don't have ID lost it so they'll lose their social security card as well. Then they won't have ID to get ID.
    but they will always have their thumbs, unless they lose those too. then they may indeed be in for some difficulty in acquiring enough witnesses.

    remember during Florida 2000, when they argued that their supporters were just naturally either illiterate or senile, and that therefore the ballots were unfairly tilted against them?

    Well bad ballot lay out is one thing...Not switching the top name on a ballot does give some favor to the person who happens to be on the top line

    You are still just a young stud but us older cows didn't get SS cards until you actually needed one - as in got a job.

    I'm aware that the SS numbers are issued very early now.

    I totally support the Printofathumb™ methodology you suggested. This being on file could easily resolve a request for duplicate ID.
