All election fraud, and indeed all fraud of any kind, is perpetrated exclusively by Democrat Liberals because, being Muslim-friendly Atheists, they have no morals whatsoever and not only that, but also.

Impossible. They don't have any experience with trying to steal an election.

Can you imagine how this article would be written if there were connections to a company that Obama was associated with:

"Voting machines completely corrupt!! Contain software written by Obummer himself ... in Muslim!!!!"

This is moonbat conspiracy theory.

The real stealing of the election: making sure that non-citizens, criminals and the dead can vote, because they all want those Democrat benefits.

Liberal parties, from the Bolsheviks to the French Revolution, have always been without honor.

This is because liberalism is a mental disease transmitted through misery.

It sounds like you are using a story about an idiotic application of a law to advocate for another idiotic application of a law.

Nope, just pointing out that you need an ID for a lot more than driving and voting. Ever stay in a hotel room? rent anything? You probably were asked for ID.

I didn't know that staying in a hotel was a Constitutional right.


It's not, but owning a gun is, and I need an ID for that.
Every citizen that isn't a felon has the right to vote, and the government has the responsibility to ensure that the voting isn't fraudulent. How can you ensure that someone that is voting is doing so legitimately without properly Identifying them? Please explain that to me in detail.

Headso: Callous: Headso: Callous: Headso: Callous: All you need to get handed a ballot is to be able to spit out a name and matching address that you just read on the list by the door.

and if you happened to have picked someone who had already voted or will come to vote later you have just committed a federal felony in front of respected members of the community, If you don't mind committing federal felonies you probably are not a big voter to begin with. All your crackpot scenarios involve some ocean's 11 esque conspiracy all to get 1 extra vote, it's idiotic.

And I'm sure that if I were to do that in the morning that when the real person comes in in the evening everyone is going to remember exactly who I was amongst the thousands of people that filed through the place that day. Oh wait they didn't ID me, they have no idea who I was and therefore can't charge me. Where I vote is in a middle school gymnasium and there are no cameras. So by the standards established up thread since they have no idea who I was and can't charge me it never happened.

for one those votes wouldn't be counted and for two there would be an investigation because it is a federal felony, you know, kind of a serious crime... Can you come up with a single farking reason why a person would commit such a crime unless you truly believe that there are people out there who are such zealots for the democratic party they would do that, it's like fundie muslim level of loyalty to allah you'd have to think democrats were the greatest farking thing ever.

If there's no system in place to catch them why wouldn't they? How can they not count that vote? No one is tracking who gets which ballot. I fill it out and drop it in the box. Once it's in there no one knows which one it is.

red flags are raised when 2 people vote under the same name and there is a system to catch people. come one man, people don't even vote legally but you are acting like you have a logical argument when you say there are all these ...


And since they are forbidden to ask for ID who do they believe, the guy standing in front of them saying he is Jim Smith or the guy that voted hours ago whose face and ballot they can no longer identify that said he was Jim Smith?

Do you truly believe Democrats are suddenly defending this issue as champions of voter rights and republicans are just trying to steal elections?

GoldSpider: MarkEC: Persons who want the new Department of State Voter ID will need to provide their

Name
Address
Date of Birth
Social Security number (If the customer has been issued an SSN)
County
Previous name and/or address if changed in the past 12 months.

That is all you need! They search the voter rolls and address info and viola, you get an ID!

If that were the case, I don't think I'd have seen news reports of people being turned away and told to come back with "proper documentation".


If a State requires documentation for voter ID, then they probably required the same documentation for you to register to vote in the first place, so you already have said documentation. As my link states, PA doesn't require any documentation, only that you be registered to vote already and provide information that they can check on. If you are not registered to vote already, it will be kicked out. (you can register to vote in the same place) If your address is new or you don't have an SSN, they may put it on hold till they verify your info.

GoldSpider: sodomizer: How expensive are they that "the poor" (a media creation, since there's no uniformity to the group) can't afford them? Don't they need them for other things? Is it a question of sacrificing something non-essential (cable TV) for something essential (ID)?

It was a pain in the ass for me to get all of the proper documentation together when I had to get a passport, and that was with the luxury of having time off from work to get it. I can't imagine it's any easier for a poor person.


From my above link:

In Pennsylvania they are free. Yet the courts blocked enforcement of the voter ID law for this year.

Thallone1: Dafatone: craig328: why do we have a political party that relies on felons and people illegally in the country to win elections?

Relies on?

Every recent effort to block illegal immigrants from voting (voter roll purges, ID laws,) would block many more legal voters than illegal ones. Estimates say a few million legal voters could have been disenfranchised countrywide by the recent wave of ID laws. Florida tried to purge 180,000 voters from the registry, many of whom were legal.

But no. It's totally that Democrats rely on the illegal vote, and not that stopping millions of legal voters from voting sucks.

Interesting viewpoint. Try squaring this : we shouldn't have to show id to exercise the right to vote, but we *must* show id to exercise the right to bear arms.

Also, you are required to have photo id to drive or cash a check at the bank, how many people would honestly not have an id that would allow that?


But haven't you heard? Requiring voters to have legal identification is racist and disenfranchises minorities and the poor.

Citations: here and here.

How the FARK is requiring someone to have legal ID a racist move?

The stupid...it burns...

The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: 2010: Voting machine casts phantom votes, invalidating real votes

2008: Voting machines manufacturer admits their machines 'lose' votes. Ohio used them anyway.

2008: Another source for the 'lost' votes.

2007/2008: Hackers manage to hack every model of voting machine used in California

Florida 2000: Voting machine awards Bush 2813 votes and Gore negative 16022 votes in a precinct with only 585 registered voters

How to Hack a Diebold voting machine - the method used in the above Gore-Bush vote 'error' 

That's from 30 seconds of searching.


And yet no proof it swayed the election. This is the logic liberals use in voter fraud. Okeefe gets a ballot in holder's name and it is non proof because he never voted.

The fact is it is nearly impossible to identify in person voting fraud because the only way to find it is by checking id. Of course this is outlawed. So the only good means of checking for in person fraud is not allowed. But liberals say no convictions, no problem. This is a fallacy. If someone votes as someone else, they leave and ate long gone by the time the real voter shows, no conviction. If real voter never shows, no conviction. The only convictions have stemmed from someone voting as two people in the same precincts.

Lunaville: It doesn't matter whether you are a Democrat, a Republican, a member of a third party, or an independent voter; every voter should receive a paper receipt allowing him or her to verify that the votes cast were recorded correctly.


Ummm ... what would it prove? A machine rigged to change your D vote to an R vote could easily also print out a D receipt. The piece of paper is false security ... unless it was printed by an unrelated auditing company that had a system that just monitored votes and printed receipts.

Cythraul: fireclown: Cythraul: How exactly do criminals and illegal aliens vote?

By obtaining someone elses name, address and birthday. I admit, it's a hassle, but it is an easy enough matter that it kind of worries me. Maybe we could consider putting a photo on your voter registration card.

And you have some sort of record, proof I'd say, of something like this happening often?


When there's no method in place of verifying that the person is who they say they are how is that proof to ever exist?

Where I vote all you need to get a ballot is a name and address. Conveniently, they are all posted on the wall right inside the door.

Not to mention the sheer implausibility of it all. That somehow these companies, which can barely make working voting machines, have found a way to network all these machines together to secretly steal the vote, is beyond credibility.

However, Democrats sneaking in the dead, fake voters, criminals, illegal aliens, former aliases, etc. is standard practice.

As usual, the liberal tells ten lies while complaining about one fake moonbat theory. Liberalism is a mental disease spread through misery.
