Bendal: but they all claim the Voter ID bill will prevent it from happening


"Lisa, I want to buy your rock!"

Conservatives: dumber than Homer Simpson.

Headso: Do people seriously believe republicans/conservatives are taking this issue up not to disenfranchise people but to protect democracy? The way certain people in the thread are speaking they seem to believe that, rubes I guess.

I find it so convenient that O'Keefe's video has surfaced right as our conservative-majority legislature here in NC returns to session. They tried to pass a voter ID bill last year and it failed to muster enough votes to pass the Governor's veto, but they've vowed to try again and are using his video as "proof" on "how easy it is to illegally vote without an ID".

Except, no one has managed to come up with anything but individual isolated cases of illegal voting in NC. Every Republican legislator that has been asked for the numbers of voter fraud have failed to provide anything, but they all claim the Voter ID bill will prevent it from happening. Basically they want a law to stop a nonexistent crime; the few cases of illegal voting would have succeeded with a voter ID anyway, so what's the point?

Oh, right; the point is to make the chore of getting the ID so onerous to those without a driver's license (typically the very old or very poor, who happen to mostly vote Democratic) that they don't bother, and therefore can no longer vote at all.



Why are Dems (note the correct spelling) so against voter id?

Homeless people are allowed to vote.

If only the US had a sensible way of establishing voter lists, like putting a single checkbox on tax returns:

Do you wish to be put ing the voter lists for upcoming elections [ ]

And then have an option to register at the polls (which would have some ID requirements, with enough options that essentially everyone is covered without issue).
There, done.

Ha, republicans feel that you should have to be a land owner to vote. Should we end womens suffrage and start counting brown people by fractions too?

Sure....that is why Repubs are pushing for voter id - to make it easier to commit voter fraud. And that is why the Dims are against voter id - because it makes it easier to commit voter fraud. Makes perfect sense.

Don't you understand it? Electrion fraud only happens in two situations: when people register to vote or when people cast ballots. And in most cases, only when those people are poor or minorities.

Election fraud never happens by preventing people from voting when they are legally allowed to, or intimidating groups of voters from voting, or counting ballots, or rigging the machines that process the ballots.

It is a little backwards when people are doing everything they can to prevent their fellow citizens from voting, while simultaneously doing everything they can to ensure the availability of large, anonymous cash donations for politicians.
 
2012-05-16 09:46:09 AM
Even the language of this debate has become twisted. It's "voter fraud," not "election fraud."

"Voter fraud" means it's the voters who are scamming the system. It means there are voters who should not be allowed to vote. Voters who are having their choices considered when, in the eyes of the country, they should not be.

"Election fraud" means the election itself has problems. It means there could be an issue with the voters, but it could just as easily be with preventing voters from voting, or counting the ballots, or or otherwise disrupting the system as a whole. It means there can be other factors besides just "voters."

This is memetic warfare.

You all don't see it coming, do you?

The 'illegitimacy' theme of the President's first term was the birth certificate.

The theme of the second term will be the *stolen election.*

You see, they hate him, and they think everyone else does too. Therefore, they will never accept that he legitimately won an election.

If you think the Voter ID clamp-down is bad now, this is just the preview. The next step is 'he won because we didn't go far enough.'

Book it.

gingerjet: Babwa Wawa: If you want to require state-issued photo ID at the polls, then you need to issue state photo IDs free of charge. If you want absolute proof of citizenship, then you need to support a free national ID card.

But photo IDs typically need other forms of proof - such as a birth certificate. And those cost money to request.

/and photo IDs don't do a damn thing to eliminate voter fraud
//which is basically non-existent in this country

what is it the GOP fears about people voting anyway? Why are they so convinced that they won't vote for their team?


The don't fear people voting - they fear dead people voting democrat.

Don't worry, the article didn't use it properly either.

"A triptych is a work of art (usually a panel painting) which is divided into three sections, or three carved panels which are hinged together and can be folded shut or displayed open."

Conservatives are just worried that non-US citizens will have undue influence on American elections.

.......Unless it involves those non-US citizens are donating tens of millions of dollars in campaign contributions, then conservatives will fight tooth and nail for them.

Yes, and somehow 3 New Black Panthers in Philadelphia intimidating voters will be worse than rejecting hundreds of thousands of potential voters because they are too poor to get an ID. In fact, those 3 New Black Panthers will scare off so many Republican voters in Philly (ha!) to counteract the poor Democrats turned away by Voter ID laws nationally that Obama will win, from that act alone, by 17% or roughtly 25 million votes.
