    Suppose we go the Aussie way: Everybody who’s eligible to vote, votes OR pays a fine for not voting, meaning $50 or less. That would encourage voter turnout, REQUIRE that the eligible voter list be assembled and verified in advance, and lead to a better more functional democracy. Who wouldn’t be happy with that outcome?

    Answer: the gerrymandering, poll taxing, discriminatory, old boy bosses who want to run government out of a back office at the country club.

    It’s amazing that they used to have elections where absentee ballots meant that you were actually going to be absent from your voting district on election day. OH! OH! And you could only vote on election day, too! And only during regular business hours. (Didn’t they get better turn out under those rules?)

    So the problem is NOT that the hours are limited or that the man has no access to ID. When did we just give up on having any personal responsibility or accountability?

    Did the young man not know that he would need ID? (in FL when you get your DL – a process that requires proof of citizenship – you can also register to vote) Does he not buy ANYTHING that requires a photo ID? (alcohol, cigarettes, open a bank account, apply for a job, buy a car, fill a prescription and so on)So who’s fault IS it that he doesn’t have one?

    Now the hours of operation for the polls. Really? He didn’t know? Around here the hours are posted months in advance along with the locations. “EARLY” voting for a couple of weeks is still around, giving you ample time and opportunity to “schedule” your visit. Will you have to wait on line? DUH!!!!!!! That doesn’t keep you from going to the DMV does it?

    Lazy, shiftless, irresponsible whiners.

    Flying, renting a car, and getting a hotel room are not Constitutionally-protected activities. Voting is.
    It’s the same rationale gun-rights advocates use, but for some reason many of them seem to hold a double standard….

    Not a good example, Wolf. You can’t buy a gun from a dealer without I.D.

    Aren’t YOU being racist ASSUMING that ONLY white men have ID’s?

    Give it up, kato1979….that was ALMOST 14 years ago….
    No wonder you Dems stay so deluded, you STILL can’t get over that butt whoopin’!

    False. EVERY time they recounted the possible votes after the election, Bush continued to win each and every single time!

    One thing that Dems like Wolf hate: ONE (living) vote, per ONE (living) person, per ONE election.

    You are talking about present-day Virginia. We love the good old days. It takes 5 Virginians to change a light bulb: one to change it, and four to talk about how much better the old one was.

    When I went to pick up my EBT card, my ’bama phone, my Section 8 housing voucher, my food stamps, and my free college grant, I had to show them my ID?

    I live in one of the most liberal gun law states in the country and I still have to show and ID and wait for a federal background check to buy a gun. I also have to show an ID and go through the background check again to get a concealed carry permit. Many stores now require a photo ID to use a credit card. If the libs had their way, voting would be the only thing that didn’t require an ID.

    mikefive; Sure you can. Just go to the nearest Mafia Market and buy as many as you can pay for, no questions asked. These Terrorist Trades Days are held at least five or six times a year around big city suburbs. Just look for the code name “Gun Show”.

    Just an aside on your examples. I don’t consider myself poor, but until I was about 30 I didn’t fly, rent hotel rooms, or rent cars, because I couldn’t afford it. Sometimes your world is different from the world you criticize.
