    I showed my birth certificate, social security card, two proofs of address and paid $54.25 so I can vote. Guess who I’m voting for?

    Those ultra-long lines in Florida – aren’t they a poll-tax in disguise? You have to take a whole day off to vote, you incur economic damage… Somebody (ACLU?) should sue Rick Scott!

    What ID do you think would work then? Since that is one of the major issues presented that it has seemed to differ depending on where you were and almost who you talked to. Also exactly why is it suddenly now an issue to have voter ID when it hasn’t been earlier, or it just because they dislike Obama so much that they corrupt the democratic process with acts like that.

    Republicans keep saying that government is corrupt and inefficient. Turns out they’re right — when it comes to Republican state government and Republican-run federal agencies. The eight-hour lines are INTENTIONAL and by design.

    …and I’m guessing making it easy for Republicans?

    You don’t have a constitutional right to fly, get into other countries, or use a credit card, so if you’re unfairly denied the ability to do those things it isn’t a constitutional problem. Try reading the document one of these days. It has big words, but I’m sure you can get a grownup to help you.

    Um, yes; that’s why Husted tried to extend early voting hours in all counties which had heavily Republican majorities, but deny them in counties which had Democratic majorities.

    Each state should require some form of pictorial ID. . . don’t they already? That’s not invasive or anything. You got a driver’s license? There ya go! Got a passport (and who doesn’t besides me)? There ya go! Each state issues picture IDs for people who don’t drive. There ya go!

    What’s the problem? So the republicants fix the ballot machines in Ohio. So they intimidate the blacks in Florida. Hey – we’ll just vote Mittens out in 2016.

    I have read it and is says the states have control over setting voting requirements. That means if the state says you have to present an ID IT IS constitutional.

    The Black Panthers thing is so overblown. There were two (2) black men outside a voting booth in a heavily black precinct, who claimed they were The New Black Panther Party. Nobody was intimidated or threatened. They were told to leave and were escorted away from the vicinity. Since they complied with the authorities, and since they broke no laws, they were never prosecuted. So much for the New Black Panthers. They never blocked any whites from entering the polling place. Sorry if that doesn’t fit into your delusions.

    The states have some leeway in setting voting requirements. A number of states consistently violated the civil rights of black voters, and must submit their voting requirements to the government for approval. Just because the state says it, does not mean that they can do anything they want. No poll taxes, no literacy requirements. The US Constitution trumps all state constitutions.

    You have the money to fly?!?! There are many others who don’t even have the money for a bus! But you would never understand that. Oh yes, and they are working two jobs and supporting a family on minimum pay so others can fly in their corporate jets.

    I have an idea. Let the states require IDs, and then fine them $1M per legitimate US citizen who is denied their right to vote due to the states’ inability to provide IDs in time for the election.
