    No reason all Americans who want to vote can't get some ID right? Just a matter of filling out a few forms.

    The system isn't 100% perfect? Better to just not check at all. What's the worst that could happen?

    10 cases of in-person voter fraud the last ten years. Sounds like a problem...Why aren't Republicans worried about absentee ballot voter fraud I wonder?

    10 cases that got caught. Don't be stupid. You know it happens. Everyone knows it happens.

    About half my liberal 'friends' posted that story on their facebooks today. Of course everyone, including the Media, wants to pretend this very recent poll doesn't exist.

    This whole thing is even more futile than the right's effort to prevent gay marriage.

    We know because they're the ones that get caught.

    So she goes home, grabs her marriage license, and then applies for ID, right?

    Hey look, problem solved.

    Do you really think that showing ID to vote is a bad thing?

    I don't understand the big deal with having an ID to vote. How is it denying people the right to vote? I don't get it.

    I'm still trying to figure that out too. Like most things these days it seems to boil down to one thing:

    Especially when the IDs are free... that destroys the "poll tax" argument.

    Do you really think not showing it is a bad thing? Again, the majority of voter fraud is absentee voter fraud, why aren't republicans focusing on that?

    You need a photo id for everything these days. Everyone should have one anyway.

    Yes.

    I don't know. Why aren't democrats focusing on that if it's such a big republican problem?

    That would kill this "journalist's" agenda story. Can't have that.

    They are. I've posted several stories about it here. That's Don's "only Republicans get caught" argument.

    But then you wouldn't be able to post your hack regurgitated right wing taking points agenda, and your trademark deflection of the source without even looking at the points being made.

    No kidding. Why is this even a story? The ol' bag forgot the proper documentation to prove who she says she was. So what? Is this supposed to prove that it's such an inconvenience for some in obtaining a photo ID that they'll be discouraged from voting? Tough shit.

    "And now they tell her no"......no, she's not allowed to vote? Or no, we'll need to see proof confirming your current last name, so we can get you your photo ID...so you can do your patriotic duty and vote? Some journalist.

    Write your little outraged piece when Grand-mama is told by state officials that she's too old to vote or she's turned away at the polls...not when she forgets proper identification, so they tell her to return with a marriage license so she can get her ID or they'd gladly let her fill out an absentee ballot.

    dude stop it with the ridiculous one sided nonsense.
    ive read alot of your posts and you seem too smart of a guy to say something so fucking stupid.
    both sides suck and cheat. thats the reality EVERYBODY knows but few truly want to admit it for some reason.
    just show id, its not like anybody would be giving up anything personally to do so

    Too many post, don't give a shit. If you are too stupid to get a state ID, then you shouldn't vote.

    Go to your local Board of Elections and see all the miserable party hacks within it. Those are the fucks that count them votes.

    Mostly bitter cunts waiting for enough time for a pension.

    I never said Democrats don't do it. I'm saying the same thing you are, both sides suck and cheat. I just get tired of the constant denials that it doesn't happen on the other side.

    And if it was to legitimately stop voter fraud, I could agree. But it's not. It's to take votes away from Democrats, pure and simple. In Pennsylvania:

    Absentee voter fraud is a bigger problem, but Republicans don't address it because absentee voting favors them.
