    Trying to keep people from voting who have no legal privilege to do so is not voter suppression. There have been cases when there were more votes in a district than registered voters. Also, there is no reason for dead people to vote. Lastly, In states where voter id laws have been enacted the voter turnout was not affected.
    A cartoon is a cartoon, but either make it really knee slapping funny, or do the research and make it accurate.

    “Reason why College ID’s are not allowed is to prevent the Student attending College in another State from voting twice, once in their Home State, and again in the State where they attend College and pay out of State tuition as they are not a resident of the State where they attend College.”
    -
    How much do you think college students and their parents would add to their college debts to enable their transportation home to another state and back , missing class in the process, in order to cast a single ‘extra’ ballot.
    -
    Your example is contrived and as false as the rest of the widespread undetected voter fraud.

    MortyForTyrant:: I can show you three homes in St Louis county where Bosnian immigrants told me that they were paid $20 to vot e for specific Democratic candidates.

    You are being naive, which I doubt or deceved by the “purity of the Democrats”.

    Bogus argument, letting those who do not have a vested interest in this country, ie becoming citizens, influence decisions concerning this countries leadership is an ill fated plan. Trying to compare not allowing people who are citizens vote based on the color of their skin is not the same thing as allowing illegal immigrants vote is dense and shallow at best.

    So why is it that these laws are being pushed exclusively by Republicans? Duh? To cement their power. This is how they govern. If you don’t agree with them, then you are given extra hurdles that their safe districts don’t have to suffer.

    No state has had an election since they enacted voter i.d. laws? Did the states who enacted these laws before cancel all elections?
    Secondly, like most laws, I do not accept all aspects of the concept. Early voting has helped a lot of people get to the poles who, like myself, have to work a lot of hours and sometimes don’t know when we will get a day off.
    Not allowing student i.d.’s is a no brainer, some of these people also live in other states.
    thirdly, the unnecessary vitriol in your last statement is a perfect example of what is wrong with political discussion today. So, try to keep it civil ,Jughead.

    “The students worry me – what is to keep them from getting absentee ballot from their home state, registering to vote in the state where they attend school, thus voting twice?”

    Uh, maybe the fact that it’s illegal? Or did you forget there’s already a law against it?

    Want a bank account? Need a photo ID.

    Want a library card? Need a photo ID.

    Want to get through airport security? Need a photo ID.

    Want to get into Eric Holder’s building? Need a photo ID.

    Want to prove you’re eligible to vote? Well, we’ll just take your word on that on.

    It is so wrong to take a person’s right to vote away. At least let their vote count say, 3/5ths of a normal person. (read your history people)

    Democrats somehow never complain about the military vote being suppressed. When Gore’s team was challenging the GI votes where were the other Democrats? Stuart? Any left leaning cartoonist? Probably wondering if drug dealers, hookers, rapist and other undesirables are having their votes suppressed.

    @Davit_O

    There are already laws against voter fraud. Since it so rarely occurs, why do you want create additional laws? Is it just your love of big, intrusive government?

    SHOW ME YOUR PAPERS!!!
