    I heard they"re having a contest in Philly to see who can vote the most times this election day.

    Of course the Pennsylvania Secretary is taking his sweet time getting the word out that the laws was set aside. Presumably so voters will still think the law is still in effect and not show up on Nov 6.

    Well, you guys can hold yer horses. The law was upheld but the effective date was pushed back.

    From a CNN Politics article:

    “Notably, the court’s ruling accepts the principle that the voter ID rules are legal. Unfortunately, the timing of the change meant that Pennsylvanians will have to wait one more election cycle before they can be sure their elections are fraud-free,”

    onguard, legal citizens of America CAN vote, and they only DO vote once. If you can find any evidence to the contrary, I’d like to see it — even the crooks in the Pennsylvania GOP couldn’t find one case. I read the papers, so I know that the Pennsylvania voter suppression law would have removed around 10% of Pennsylvania voters from the voting rolls. Destroying democracy for 10% of the legal population is not a good trade-off for preventing zero voter fraud. The only motive was to deny likely-Democratic voters their rights as Americans.

    The voter ID laws are nothing more than a disguised poll tax. It’s the 21st century & the GOP is trying to drag us back to the19th century. What’s next, trying to suppress women voting ?

    And you Cons can’t deal with the fact that there are very few illegal voters. After due process, Florida found only 198 registered voters that the state could not document as citizens who had the right to vote. This was after trying to purge tens of thousands from the rolls.

    And that is an example of the most common form of voter fraud – an American citizen using some subterfuge to vote twice. One common tactic is to be registered in both the main residence and the vacation home, then vote by absentee ballot.

    They can’t, thanks to the 19th Amendment. It’s too late to repeal it, so they’re going to have to deal with us Women voting for who we want. And if anyone tries to stop me, I’ll make a scene just by raising the volume of my voice. (One roomie compared me to a fire siren – after she tickled me silly. )

    Funny how only cartoonists and myself ever mention Alec here.

    Check Paragraph 6

    Again check paragraph 6

    read any article about it and you can see the words “temporary” injunction most of the time.
    What did you think your media outlets are above “creative” phrasing?

    What I don’t understand is why you do not see the wisdom – given the influx of non citizens and the stake they may feel they have in the outcome of this particular election – of ensuring that ONLY citizens vote as the constitution specifies. Now if you have a better way than an ID requirement then I’m willing to hear it.

    Doesn’t much matter unless the candidate won by one vote. Now take the computer fraud in Ohio where in some counties there were more votes for Bush than there were people living there.
    C’mon, Radish, you know it’s okay if a Republican does it.

    Since both Democrats AND Republicans are treated the same by these voter fraud laws, you would think it would be embarrassing to admit that only Democrats can’t figure out how to meet such a minimal standard.

    I’m still waiting for the collective mind to explain how an ID law will keep American citizens from being able to vote. I will GLADLY pay for it in my taxes if some folks cannot get picture ID if it’s for some financial reason. People have to show picture ID’s for LOTS of reasons that are less important than voting for people who influence every moment of our LIVES, and yet, the collective mind goes absolutely bonkers when anyone suggests that folks ought to have one when they go to the polls to vote.

  14. John Beam

    John Beam said, about 4 years ago

    Yeah, and when Gov. Walker’s opponent got 119% of the vote in Madison during the Wisconsin recall. It matters, and even if fraud wasn’t a huge problem, you’d think that a responsible American citizen would think that there ought to be ways to keep it from happening. When the collective mind doesn’t want to keep it from happening, it makes me think that it wants the status quo for partisan reasons.

    What? Admit you were wrong. You said: " What rubbish. I want to see the source of that statement".

    So you were saying that you didn’t believe the law was just temporarily blocked from taking effect – which IS the case.

    So how can you say it is voter suppression if the voter has to travel and take time to comply with the law? The judge took care of the time thing. Next cycle there is no excuse you now have 365 more days to “plan” and get your ID.

    So how about it ERYX how would YOU guarantee that only citizens vote as stipulated by the constitution?
