    the only ‘jim crow’ about this isn’t true anymore. If voting was the only place where a photo ID was required, then I would agree but photo ID’s are required in so many other instances that this is just plain stupid, but that basically describes liberals.

    Just last year the most black Americans ever voted in the national election. It broke the record set 4 years before that.
    I really don’t see a problem here, unless liberals are saying blacks aren’t smart enough to get an ID?
    Just another example of the patronizing attitude white liberal democrats use to tell blacks that they need somebody to hold their hand. Disgusting.

    “Just last year the most black Americans ever voted in the national election. It broke the record set 4 years before that.”

    Yup…absolutely true. And they turned out in droves precisely because the Republicans worked so hard to keep them away from the polls. Black people didn’t get the vote by standing hat in hand and begging Mistuh Charlie for their rights. They got the vote by organizing and fighting for it. And they have looooog memories.

    Republican voter suppression, like so many other Republican “policies”, has precisely the opposite effect from what they think they are accomplishing. Trying so publicly to disenfranchise people who might not vote for you only gives them the incentive to organize and work to get out even more voters who really won’t vote for you.

    We owe the Republicans a vote of gratitude for doing so much to turn out Democratic voters in the last election. We could never have engineered the massacre of the Republican candidate in the last election without their help.

    Keep up the good work guys!

    A person can only vote in one place (maybe two counting early voting). For 200 years, the place of voting had the names and signatures of all voters, checked and vetted, and the voting observers carefully checked the signatures (plus, they often knew the voter personally).


    A person can buy liquor in any licensed establishment, so it was impossible (until very recently) to distribute signatures and birthdates to all of them; hence, a photo-id with proof of age was used.


    And yet, Obama won the last two Presidential election, which is (to every rwnj) irrefutable proof of massive voter fraud, and we need Mr Crow back on the job, stopping not just African Americans from voting, but Hispanics and other Democrats as well, since not one of them is a legal, legitimate, eligible voter: every legal, legitimate, eligible voter voted for Mitt, but he still lost because of that aforementioned massive fraud.

    Here’s the deal. If you really want photo ID because of all the imagined voter fraud, fine. But the state has to pay for them, or else it’s a poll tax. This makes it an unfounded mandate because no state has offered to pay for the IDs. More importantly, this whole ID issue is a red herring, taking attention from the real election fraud which isn’t happening at the individual level but at the official level. They’re the ones who can turn away certain voters (despite the voters following all the rules), make them stand in line for hours, close the polls early. Far more votes have been rigged by corrupt officials than corrupt individual voters. Heck, even when individuals cheat, it’s often with the encouragement and complicity of election officials. That’s where the need is.
    I do not have any faith that requiring photo IDs will reduce the real corruption. I even suspect that in certain places, a black voter with proper ID would still get the runaround.

    “And they turned out in droves precisely because the Republicans worked so hard to keep them away from the polls.” No, they turned out in droves to vote for a black candidate. You’re entitled to your own opinion, not your own facts.

    @Genome Project “Just last year the most black Americans ever voted in the national election”.
    You left out…and we must put a stop to that!

    “Otherwise we’ll become completely irrelevant!” Yeah, keep trying to suppress the vote, GOP; you’ll only hasten your inevitable departure from political power.

    They turned out in droves so lets cut polling hours, reduce early voting, close polling places anything to keep them at bay. And we all know that’s happening.

    The guy preventing people from voting should be dressed in a New Black Panther uniform. They are the ONLY group that is suppressing voting.
