    Should you prove you are a citizen when register to vote?(please read before voting)

    Should you prove you are a citizen when register to vote? This is about getting your voter registration card, not showing up the polls and presenting birth certificates and certificates of naturalization.


    This should be a no brainer.Yes you should have to prove you are a citizen to get a voter registration card.



    My Way News - Must voters have to prove citizenship to register?

    The Supreme Court will struggle this week with the validity of an Arizona law that tries to keep illegal immigrants from voting by demanding all state residents show documents proving their U.S. citizenship before registering to vote in national elections.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I have no problem with that. If I was in another country I would expect the same.

    I honestly don't get the controversy. Can't prove citizenship, can't vote.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No. Why should we discriminate against non-citizens? I'm a little tired of people who seem to think that only citizens should have the right to vote. It's time for that to change once and for all. Those who sneak across the border need representation too.

    Of course, but no need to make it all about sneaky foreigners voting illegally. Perfectly legit citizens casting multiple votes is a much more realistic threat in most places. A photo ID is not too much to ask for, really.

    It's not about sneaky foreigners voting illegally, it's about Dems pandering and encouraging illegal votes for the Dems personal benefits.

    Multi-votes could be a separate poll.

    did those damn dirty Republican try and disenfranchise illegals or something?


    citizenship should be required for federal elections (and it is)

    I don't really care if the individual states require it or not...they should have the right to determine that for themselves ( and they do)

    The SC is going to "struggle" with this? Whew. How do they ever manage to get up each day? Must be a struggle as well.

    Good evening, Humbolt.

    Judging from the ages of some of them, they probably wonder WHY they even bother struggling! As for the rest of them.....:
