    IMO, the quantity of voter fauld that we have today is NOT sifficient for extremists going around and killing people..
    I do like the concept of the ID card.....with oversight and regulations....there is as ever, the criminal element.

    I'd say most of us are split in our political views. I know there are "Republicans" on here who don't agree with everything the R's stand for and "Democrats" who don't believe in everything the D's stand for.

    Even though I tend to lean toward the D's I wouldn't say I am one because I radically disagree with some of their beliefs. For example, when it comes to gun control I'm extreme right and I'm extreme-to-center right on the military.

    Please explain why or why not.
    Voter fraud would hardly constitute the death penalty. Imprisonment and fines, yes, but not death.

    I don't quite follow your point. The various voter ID laws across the states are the regulations and I'm not sure what kind of oversight you are describing. In my state of PA, the only concern any of the courts had was around the timing of implementation. Many forms of ID are accepted, and absent those, there is a state voter ID card which is free. This even includes nursing home ID cards. I'm not aware of any of the states that are implementing voter ID laws that don't have some implementation of a provisional ballot should someone not be on a registration list.

    Re: Death penalty for voter fraud

    Maybe the death penalty needs to be saved for those who don't vote rather than fraudulent voters. At least the so-called criminal voted.

    From what I've witnessed over my lifetime in this country...this nation's political parties and government have evolved into a very corrupt and self-serving system without any help from people engaging in any fraudulent intent to sway election outcomes.

    I encouraged folks to vote prior to 2012 election. Many who weren't planning to vote, gave reason as it's futile because elections are rigged.
    THIS IS the result of voter fraud and political bosses in national committees "hand picking" convention delegates, and rigged voting machines.

    Obviously I didn't talk to a LARGE percentage of the population. But I was appalled at the LARGE % of those I DID talk to who had lost faith in the election system, were discouraged and so effectively disenfranchised.

    THAT'S why I think vote fraud, high handed political bosses, and vote machine hackers, DESERVE the severest of punishment when caught.

    They are helping to destroy this country.

    That's treason.

    I like how the real result of the poll is that most people on this forum don't want to be labeled as adhering to either major political party.

    You got it wrong. No one needs to demonstrate ANYTHING to your satisfaction. I already did determine to MY satisfaction. And so did many others to their satisfaction. And the majority of citizens of 33 states decided they needed protection from vote fraud by implementing voter ID.

    YOU seem to be unable to accept that. But voter IDs are now a fact in 33 states, whether you accept it or not.

    And more states will choose voter IDs in future.

    Thank you for admitting you have no verifiable evidence to demonstrate any problem that a citizen should demand action for.
