    For at least 100 years, a person had to prove his eligibility (in some jurisdictions, one remained eligible after thanatos). Once they proved their eligibility with birth certificate and the fact that the voter registrar had known them all their life, they signed the book for their polling place, and the book was taken to the polling place on election day. This worked because each voter was required to vote at a single, designated polling place. So every person who wanted to vote had to sign, and the election monitors carefully compared signatures. If even one of the monitors was honest, every registered voter who showed up to vote, and only registered voters, got one vote. If all the monitors were crooked, their favoured candidate got a majority of the ballots placed in the box.


    While voters can only vote at their designated polling place, which must have the list of all registered voters assigned to that polling place and their signatures, anyone old enough can buy liquor at any licensed liquor store. So comparing signatures wouldn’t work, and an ID showing age must be used.


    However, in 2012, most voters cast their votes for the Democratic candidates for the House, the Senate, and the White House. Fortunately, the nation was saved by the patriotic gerrymander who ate enough of those votes to keep the House solidly Republican, so it could shut down the government for two weeks in a snit.


    But the poor gerrymander shouldn’t have to do ALL the work (it might get indigestion). So we also need something like the poll tax to make sure those Republicans who shut down the government all get re-elected. (Of course, even with a poll tax or voter ID, if all the election monitors are crooked, their favoured candidate will STILL get the majority of the ballots found in their election box.)

    I STILL wish someone could explain how the requirement of a photo I.D. is a way to suppress votes.

    Obama must have used Tommy’s services to get Obamacare passed.

    Btw….In order to be a productive member of society, people MUST have an ID.
    But I guess lots of unproductive, government dependent people equals more votes for the Dems so they don’t care.

    I could explain it a zillion times and you still would pretend to not understand. Step one: in Texas, there are 800,000 people without photo IDs. You cannot get a voter card without a photo ID. Often (as with Jim Wright) you cannot get a voter card even WITH a photo ID. He had to have a friend drive him to the county seat, and he had to purchase a new copy of his birth certificate. There were no known cases of voter-impersonation fraud in Texas, but there are now 800,000 people who have had hurdles placed in the way of their right to vote. Jim Crow is alive and well in Texas.

    “an before you cry gerrymandering take a look at Virginia’s last election. And was that not a Black Panther guy standing out in front of a polling place?”

    First off, even with gerrymandering, the Republican candidates were so preposterous that they lost (but not by nearly as much as they should have). Gerrymandering does not guarantee election results; it merely makes it more likely for the party in control to stay in control. However, it does point out that you have to have some kind of value as a candidate to be able to win.

    Keep up the good work regarding the Black Panthers. Oh, and the Weathermen at my polling precinct told me they’d bomb the school if I didn’t vote Democratic. But the Klansman standing next to him told me he’d kill my family if I didn’t vote Republican. It’s a wonder anyone in Virginia voted at all.

    @ConserveGov

    You’re saying that Jim Wright, speaker of the house from Texas, was not a productive member of society? He’s 90 years old and doesn’t drive. Why would he need a drivers license? Yet that’s what prevented him from voting in Texas. Are you saying that being 90 means you shouldn’t vote?

    @ARodney

    So how about putting on a drive to get these 800,000 people their photo I.D. cards? Instead of complaining about the law, do something to fall within it. Funny how being legal is such a chore.

    @chipscount

    Indeed why a photo ID? Very few of the poor have that in any form. In their case they are classicist bastards.

    @Michael wme

    People have been voting for up to 80 years with the same ID then a new law comes along saying their present ID is not allowed. Do you agree with that kind of law?
