    The GOP shot themselves in the foot here in Pennsylvania. The Amish, who largely live in the Lancaster County area (but also can be found in Berks, Chester and Lebanon counties) vote GOP en bloc, consider photo ID as a violation of the Ten Commandments where graven images are forbidden.

    More people got their fingers dyed in Iraq, when they could die for it, than here. THAT is the sad part of that “live free or die” that is lost on those who don’t vote.

    And a typical rightwing response. Minimize the number of voters since they know they’re in the minority.

    Maybe if right-wingers could provide evidence of this widespread voter fraud that ID laws are supposed to prevent. Oh, that’s right, you can’t. Just a lot of conspiracy theory muttering about ACORN.

    Everyone is suspect in America now. THe people at my polling place know everyone. THis stupid law results in them having to say, “Hi, SIgne! How is your dog Ginger. Please show me an ID.” Idiotic waste of time and good will.

    Reports in PA say it is not a problem, even if an infringement of voting rights, but turnout is really light . . . .

    Illegals generally shun any place that smells of Government.

    the real problem is electronic voting machines, hooked up to the internet with NO audit trail.

    the reps/cons oppose any kind of audit trail on the electronic voting machines.

    the president of diebold, who makes a large number of these machiens said he would do whatever it takes to ensure a republican win.

    This is the legacy of GWB who started chiseling away at the Bill of Rights & the U.S. Constitution (which to him was “just a god-damned piece of paper”). Unfortunately, the election of BHO has not corrected that course and “the Hope” has failed to restore citizens’ rights. Mexico, anyone?

    There is voter fraud, intimidation as well as suppression. Congressperson Gwen Moore’s son was involved in an incident in Milwaukee.


    Lawmaker’s son, 4 others charged in tire slashing

    It just doesn’t get the press it deserves.

    What I find interesting is that “Post 9/11 right wingers” consider all of their terror habituated thinking sees no problem with gestapo tactics implemented by their “heroes” on the right.


    “Voter fraud” is a historical straw dog going back to the Nixon/Brown campaign in conservative minds, but actually goes back to before the Roman Empire. The problem is, it’s never been a real problem, except in totalitarian regimes, like the one “righties” are not only willing to accept, but demand.


    Does the “right” even understand what their cries for “get government off my back” really means?? Oh, right, “keep your hands off my Medicare”, and accepting that into a woman’s uterus isn’t nearly as invasive as government on a man’s back.

    Considering all the identity theft going on in the US, fingerprints may be the only thing that’s ours anymore…

    Why are so many of you softies stopping at ID or fingerprinting? Why aren’t you calling for “mandatory, patriotic, tongue tatoos”? They would be bar codes that get scanned every time you move through a doorway, under a bridge, anywhere that you were briefly out of sight.
