    Aha – another ‘toon that’s spot on. You Republicans don’t realize how hard it is for the poor & Middle class to get a State ID.
    .
    Besides, none of those pictured would work at Election polling places… at least, not in Florida.

    You’re right….its much harder to get an ID, than filling the Democratic voting roles with the dead and fictitious names.

    And that happens when? How often? Cite some arrests in the last year. You are drinking the GOP kool-aid.

    The only case of voter fraud that the Republicans in Maine could find turned out to be an absentee ballot filed by someone who died between filing and Election Day. So yeah, I’m totally concerned about fraud.

    I really wish someone would explain what’s so hard about getting a picture ID. I’ve had one since I was 15. I had to show my ID to see a doctor yesterday. How do people live and function without one?

    you need an ID to do just about anything else, why not voting? What is so hard about getting an ID? get on the bus go to the place, stand in line get the id… As long as you are here legally it shouldn’t be a problem.

    The problem with voter ID is that, at least here in Signe’s (and my) home in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, PennDOT charges for photo ID. It costs $13.50 for a non-driver ID in PA.
    The 24th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution says that no state can charge any fee in order for a voter to exercise their rights.

    No. The burden of proof is on you to show why an ID should be necessary, given that the Republicans seem to be having trouble coming up with actual evidence of this alleged wave of voter fraud.

    Are you insane? Hard to get an ID? Pain in the but maybe but not hard. And aren’t you liberals all about taxes and fees?

    You need a birth certificate, a “proof” of residency, a social security card and the fee. IF you are a US citizen the birth certificate is issued at birth and a “certified copy” can be obtained from the county clerk office in the county of your birth. The “proof” of residency can be current utility bills and the social security card is also issued at birth (for tax reasons now) and a copy can be obtained at the social security administrations office. Plan ahead, get the paperwork done early make an appointment at the DMV and walk through in under an hour.

    If a Dumb A$$ senior citizen like me can do it it ain’t HARD.

    Ketira – I consider myself to be middle class and I had no problem getting an ID for my son. He’s 13 and wanted to go camping in Canada. We went down to the DMV with his SS card, a school ID and I had to show my ID and swear that he was my son. Oh and I had to pay $10. It’s not hard at all.

    The reason Democrats are up in arms about this is because they depend on the votes of people who will make no effort to vote unless someone shows up at their house and drives them down to the voting booth and then drives them back.

    Then on top of that there is Voter fraud no matter how many times the libs will say it doesn’t exist. I’m from Illinois and there are precincts in Chicago that regularly have more voters then live people.

    You look at it as disenfranchising the poor. I look at it as stopping the poor from disenfranchising me by watering down my vote with illegitimate votes.

    By the way, that ID is good for 5 years so it works out to be $2 a year for identification – Hardly a debilitating cost.

    What makes you think they have an EBT card?

    well the first time anyone has given a legitimate reason for being against it (at least that I have read). However, in Texas and Georgia, the ID is free to those that do not have one and can not afford to pay the fee. And 13.50 seems to me to be very reasonable seeing as how the materials, the time of the government worker and the equipment do have a cost.

    But I can not see how anyone in this century can do business of any kind without their “show me” ….LOL

    You neglected to add to your list voter ID items that each comes with a fee and usually a rather long wait time.
