(Sun Sentinel)   That voter purge in Florida? It has already caught a grand total of TWO men who weren't citizens but voted anyway. See, it's clearly a justified decision   (sun-sentinel.com) divider line 11

With so many economic and social issues to deal with, it makes you wonder why the Republicans focus on "voter fraud."

Sh*t. They even did this sh*t in my state and I live in the truest of blue states in the union. I'm a disabled veteran. I'm a property owner/landlord and I donate to local charities. I do my part, and I don't cause any grief with the police, except that I drive very fast on the highway. Why the hell do I have to affirm my citizenship to the state and the country when I go get my license renewed and register as non-affiliated? I only had to change over from Democrat because I forgot to after the last election. (You need to be a member of the party in this state to vote in a primary.)

I only bring up my attributes because i don't think anyone should have to prove this bullsh*t. You're here, you're queer, I don't care! You can vote, you can pay whatever taxes you do pay. This smacks of Heinlein and I do not like it one bit. Hell, even service doesn't guarantee citizenship. What they did to that WWII vet? Disgusting.

We're talking about an infinitesimal percentage of votes in the grand scheme of things. A percentage that would likely be negated if we spent a few billion on a standardized voting system with a paper trail to count all votes. Awwww... One less stealth dreamship for the Navy. I think our Republic is worth that trade-off and investment.

Stop asking me if I'm a citizen in 5 different ways and just count the f*cking votes accurately. Try that. If that fails, I'll submit to your biometric ID at the polling station. Hopefully, they accept ejaculate as a verifier.

Lord Dimwit: So, why is it that Republicans are so gung-ho about solving a problem that doesn't exist, but whose solution just so happens to prevent millions of people from voting, people who tend to vote Democratic? Why indeed...


Whatever it is, it isn't racism, and it isn't partisan. As long as we can all agree that its technically bad for people ineligible to vote to vote, then all costs are justified, and you're the REAL partisan if you disagree!

Theaetetus: Splinshints: Silly Jesus: www.jookos.com

Most of those things don't require an ID and only three of them aren't strictly private transactions. None of them are rights.

So, basically, your fancy graphic is mostly wrong to begin with, and even where it's not, it mostly refers to the requirements placed on private transactions by private parties that can set whatever restrictions they want.

Have you been sufficiently embarrassed for posting such a foolish thing or would you like to try and press the flimsy tatters of your horrendously disingenuous argument in favor of preventing people from participating in one of the most fundamental defenses of liberty possible?

Not yet.

How about we ask him why he thinks you need an ID to volunteer at a secular - i.e. "non-prophet" - organization?


I like that this graphic could easily be retitled, "things that require pants," and still be roughly as accurate.

I am sure this is way undercounted sort of like the whole number for people being tested that tested posative for drugs while on welfare. Speaking of that anyone get the count of people that were given the choice to take a test or get off welfare. I know there are atleast 5 households that took the get off welfare choice. But I guess those numbers are not good enough to report. PS If I know 5 imagine how many there are out there.

That makes no sense, no matter how I look at it.

ImpendingCynic: domenad: There were over 100k names on the rolls of dead and ineligible people.

Imagine that - a regular review of the rolls finds people who died, or moved away but failed to re-register in a new state or county.

It's so discourteous of dead people to not notify the elections board about their updated status.


When a person who has died remains on the voters roll, it is relatively simple to secure an absentee ballot and vote in their name. This can, does, and has happened. That's why this purge is being conducted - reducing the opportunity for fraud is as important as reducing, prosecuting, and eliminating actual fraud. I can explain it to simpletons like you and Splinshints, but I can't comprehend it for you. One simple bastard a day is my limit and thanks to you I'm stocked up.

Diogenes: Thunderpipes: Farkers are okay with voter fraud because Democrats get the votes. News at 11:00.

And you're OK with all manner of imaginary "threats" because it keeps Republicans in office and the populace fearful and complacent.


Well to be fair, Democrats hate America and want to destroy the American family.

Ha! (Warning: CSB)

Just got a call on my cell phone last night from United in Purpose, an Evangelical group. They wanted to know if I was tired of Obama's high taxes and spending, and if I was not registered, they'd get me registered.

Here's a piece on them.

So they're trying to purge Democratic leaning voters while running a slipshod operation to register Christians and Republican leaning voters. Coincidence? I think not. Plus, this operation is out of California, while I live in Orlando.

Yet ACORN were the bad guys.
