    Too lazy or stupid to get one.

    So the government can simply issue photo ID voter registration cards at no cost to the voter. Of course, what tax do we increase to pay for that?

    do we really want people who do not have the mental resources to obtain any kind of ID to be voting ? If they are so apathetic about their own lives they are sure to be ill-informed and therefore not suitable to vote.

    Or poor. Because we know that only the landed gentry should have the right to vote.

    Whether you want them to or not, they have a constitutional right to do so. If you don’t like it, you’re in the wrong country.

    I’ve noticed Republican commentators on Fox News and elsewhere increasingly talking about voting as a privilege rather than a basic right of every citizen. These people would be thrilled to live in a dictatorship as long as the “right people” were running it.

    “Too lazy or stupid to get one.”

    Yup! The little old wheel chair bound ladies living in nursing homes are all stupid, lazy cows for not popping out and getting a new ID card! You hit the nail on the head with that one!

    I don’t think it is unreasonable to expect people to demonstrate proof of citizenship before they are allowed to vote.

    Getting a proof of citizenship card in Illinois took all of 10 minutes and $10. My son and I went down to the DMV and showed them his Social Security card…That was it. They gave him a picture ID and sent him on his way.

    All this whining and snivelling about how burdensome it is to get proof of identity sounds like smoke and mirrors to me being perpetrated by a group that wants to allow: Criminals, Illiegals and the Dead to vote on their behalf.

    Essentially they want to rob the value of my vote by overriding it with illegitimate votes.

    Nope. The smoke and mirrors is that voter fraud is a big problem. Read TheTrustedMechanic’s post above. And read this article

    BTW, your screen name does not inspire confidence that we should believe anything you say.

    Good for your son. I needed my military discharge and birth certificate to get one here along with $16.00, a ton of paperwork, and a picture taken on the spot and I only had to wait 45 minutes. My expired drivers license wasn’t enough.

    while helping out in a 2009 city election i was looking at who voted in 11/08 of the 70 voters who had voted i noted one who had died in 02/08 and one who had died in 07/08 that is only 3% . Question for those who do not want to have id what % of fraud is too high?

    Please no anecdote about it. This “problem” didn’t exist until the elephants started it up. Maybe their rigging of electronic voting machines with no paper trails isn’t working this year. Plus the Supreme

    Court may not be reliable after the health care act vote.
