Well, duh. They want smart and dedicated citizens voting, not mooching losers who are too dumb to realize how great it is to work for the Investor Class. Sheesh.

puffy999: Imagine conservative voters in a bubble (or, maybe outside of their current bubble is a better way to put it). Imagine if they weren't spoonfed lies hour after hour after hour by their politicians and their media. That responsibility was taken instead of blaming "liberal communist socialists" for everything from AIDS to SIDS to [username redacted]. Imagine if they gave "their" side skepticism instead of idolatry.

I don't doubt that while we may not have a unified country, we sure as fark wouldn't have divisions on issues like THIS. The anti-vaxxers' messages would have by and large been drowned out. Mail-in voting would be as popular with red states as it is with conservatives in blue states. Donald Trump would be as irrelevant as Bush the Lesser after he left office...


We used to.

It was the 60s and 70s, to be precise, when this bullshiat wrangling was very much offscreen and confined to election years, which only lasted about six months of the actual year of the vote.

I remember, because I was there.

Surrender your boo-tah: I could fall on either side. If you ask me if I think voting is a fundamental right, and leave it at that, I'll say yes. But I also believe that voting should be limited to US citizens. Also I believe we need to make sure that every citizen can easily vote, and know their vote will be secure and counted. And we should be bending over backwards to make sure that happens.


Voting in the United States is limited to US citizens.

GA used to have no-excuse absentee voting...until this year.  Not sure if it is enacted law yet, but pretty confident the bill passed.  Google-fu brings up nothing about its status.

Moving on to my wife's recent (and last) visit to her Trumpy folks.  Her mother refused to believe that no-excuse absentee voting was not going to be an option next time.  She acted as if my wife spoke heresy.

A lot of these voting integrity laws are gonna bite a lot of scooter-based R voters.


"A lot of these voting integrity laws are gonna bite a lot of scooter-based R voters."

This is a theory I've heard a couple of times, now. That the Republicans may lose as many votes as they suppress. It seems as likely as anything.

Wouldn't it be great if there was a source of reference to settle the issue?

Like the 15th Amendment to the US Constitution....

They want QUALITY votes, not Quantity.

"Only the finest baby votes, dew-picked and flown from Iraq, cleansed in the finest quality spring water, lightly killed, and sealed in a succulent, Swiss, quintuple-smooth, treble-milk chocolate envelope, and lovingly frosted with glucose.
