    Re: Voter Laws

    Almost any amount of ID will get you a voter registration card and you have years to get ready between elections.

    I favor making it easy, but in the complete absence of effort or ID, no, you shouldn't be voting.

    Federal law only states who may not be restricted from voting. States set the requirements for voting for their election process within those laws...

    Wasn't the reasoning behind the Supreme Court decision that struck down a Arizona voter ID provision because that it went above and beyond the federal voting registration requirements?

    You're comparing registration to voting which is apples and oranges...

    Re: Voter Laws

    Do you believe in 50 different early voting laws. Isn't that what Rushbo really meant by using the word bastardization, though I use it for the civil war amendment? And same-day registration? He's on the offensive as always.

    Re: Voter Laws

    Look at the 34 different laws actually passed right now for the ID. I love a National ID, keep all those illegals from voting who come here to work for Repub corporations.

    Re: Voter Laws

    This is just a warm-up until the 2nd civil war, coming to a state near you. Repubs plant the seeds every day with their hate on radio/TV and America is now reaping what it voted for in 2010, 1994 and 1980 for starters.

    I don't believe in early voting unless there are extenuating circumstances...

    This isn't one of my issues but I think there needs to be a reasonable standard so those awful Republicans don't round up a bunch of drunk Salvadorans and bus them to the polls. More seriously, I don't feel it's unreasonable to allow voter registration with a minimum of documentation. When I worked for a crisis center, we helped people to get their birth records in the (useless) hope they would then get ID and get stuff like jobs.

    I doubt voter fraud is a significant problem. Then again, I don't think having ID is all that difficult. Even for special circumstances like the very elderly, I would be fine if voter cards were issued by sworn statement with any element of substantiation.

    Now, if you're a 90 year old homeless man, you might find this challenging but then again what are the odds you feel the need to participate in the political process?
