"But no matter how imprecise my estimate may be, it is absolutely clear that Act 23 will prevent more legitimate votes from being cast than fraudulent votes."

That's the judge saying your legislation sucks.

"The defendants could not point to a single instance of known voter impersonation occurring in Wisconsin at any time in the recent past."

Ouch. That's like getting kicked in the 'nads.

"However, I also note that, given the evidence presented at trial showing that Blacks and Latinos are more likely than whites to lack an ID, it is difficult to see how an amendment to the photo ID requirement could remove its disproportionate racial impact and discriminatory result," he wrote.

Legitimate voters?  Since when are poor people and the elderly legitimate voters?

Ahh, yes, Voter ID. It's like hearing a story from your aunt's plumber's cousin's Facebook about how one house down the block has a termite and then burning the entire town to the ground

If the Democrats were smart they'd propose a Voter ID law that provides state-issued ID cards at birth starting this year and goes fully into zero-exception, no card no vote effect in 2032. How could the GOP object? It would definitely solve their unsupported-by-fact claims of rampant "in person" voter fraud, so any other reason to move faster would be proof they're only worried about the "wrong" people voting.

I don't seem to recall ever needing a photo ID to pay taxes.

There's no enumerated right to be free of taxes, drive a car, start a bank account or be a doctor. I know you're being facetious but your point sucks. You don't need a photo ID to attend public school or use the postal service. These laws are stopping people from voting when turnout is abysmal and fraud is infinitesimal.


I don't think you seem to understand the issue here.

Brown people are VOTING. Right here in the USA. And their votes even count as much as god-fearin' whitefolk. Can you imagine???

Flashlight: Satanic_Hamster: Flashlight: The next thing to go down should be the requirement to show ID when buying a gun from a dealer. Or should the poor and minorities not be allowed to defend themselves? If you believe people should be required to provide ID to buy a firearm how do you justify your classism and racism?

I know you're a known trolling shiat, but since real life right wingers use this argument...

Guns:  For obvious reasons, insane criminals aren't allowed to purchase weapons.  ID is required to prevent them from killing people.

Voting:  ID's are wanted by Republicans to keep people from voting for Demoncrats.

Now, one of these goals is a compelling public interest.  And one is just unAmerican bullshiat that you should be ashamed of.

I actually am ashamed of voter ID laws. But unlike you I am consistent in my support of freedom. You just want get blacks to vote then send them back into the ghetto to be murdered whereas I believe that they should be able to defend themselves.


So.. free guns for everyone?

namatad: fusillade762: I'm sure SCOTUS will take care of that eventually.

alas, it will be QUITE interesting to watch how SCOTUS decides this.
Because the logic of this decision is irrefutable, you are harming a MUCH larger number of citizens than you are preventing from committing fraud.

the net effect of the law is to clearly do harm, not prevent harm


well SCOTUS decided that racism was over so we didn't need affirmative action or those voting laws in the south to protect minorities.
so if something doesn't exist we don't need laws protecting against it right?
