    A sad day for democracy.

    These practices tend to come back and turn on their creators. The Democrats are responsible for the creation of many of the procedural roadblocks being used by their opponents. There may be a time in the future where the Republicans will find it difficult to enroll new voters at a critical juncture because of this inelegant and unnecessary return to the practice of making it harder for the poor or uninformed to vote. There is no honor in this ruling. It may be legal and within the law as legislated, but it is immoral and unethical to make it harder for people to vote. It is interesting tho, President’s Day is a national holiday, but on the day we elect presidents, people still have to go to work. That is also an impediment to people being able to vote. We are better than this as a nation and a people and should not be allowing people to frighten us into making bad decisions, something both sides are doing tho one side seems better at it than the other.

    I have YET to hear a reasoned, rational argument against voter ID laws. HOW do they disenfranchise ANYONE? PLEASE, explain that to me. This collectivist rant that these laws keep citizens (non-felons) from being able to vote is utter nonsense.

    Meanwhile, the Holder-controlled DOJ allows the New Black Panther Party to call for murder and mayhem in Tampa (where the GOP’s convention will be). He can’t be interrupted from attacking Gibson guitars and states that want to stop voter fraud.

    Yohann, it’s because you’ve got your ears plugged. The information is there for you if you had the least curiousity about this assault on American democracy. Google “Pennsylvania voter suppression” and click on the first link, at Forbes magazine. The state of Pennsylvania itself (A) estimates that as much as 9% of the legal citizens in the state don’t have the ID they need (though they’re unclear on what the law actually requires), and (B) that there has never been a case of fraud found in Pennsylvania that could be prevented with an ID. Complaining about dead, illegal, or repeat voters is like complaining about UFO voters — there is no evidence that there are any. And if you can find a single member of the New Black Panther party, I’ll give you a cupcake. It’s a Fox News fiction, three guys at one polling station on one day in 2008. The Pennsylvania election fraud is 750,000 legal American citizens denied the right to vote, in perpetuity. It’s a real, measurable problem.

    @John Beam

    There is one rational argument, but the Pennsylvania law has circumvented that.
    Poll taxes are unConstitutional.
    The photo ID required for Pennsylvania voters can be acquired at no fee.

    The photo ID required in Florida, however is NOT free, and thus is effectively a poll tax.

    And re:voter fraud…
    Has Diebold, or whatever their name is now, shown that their machines can’t be hacked easily?

    Why wasn’t the Republican party complaining about voter fraud during the 2000 election?

    It is repulsive that a judge would allow this type of blatant discrimination.

    You’ve got to love how the right keeps ignoring the fact that every investigation fails to turn up any significent voter fraud.

    only 342 cases in the last 10 years in the whole nation ! Big time waste of money.

    In my local grocery store, you have to show that you are over 18 to buy cigarettes. That should be for those who are close to that age (some people are “baby faced”) to prove that they’re old enough to purchase. EVERYBODY has to show their ID, ‘cause the chain does NOT want to be accused of discrimination…even if you have gray hair and wrinkles! I can’t buy a pack of smokes without showing ID, but I can vote as many times as I want to cheat! Society makes NO sense, sometimes…

    WHY? so the illegals, dead, repeat voters can’t vote?”

    That’s what fake IDs are for.

    " I can’t buy a pack of smokes without showing ID"

    lol, lol! I’ve got to setup an auto-reply for the Fox-trained commentators on these forums. They keep coming. Like ants.

    The Constitution contains MANY phrases, clauses, and amendments detailing ways people cannot be denied the right to vote.

    The Constitution does NOT contain ANY phrases, clauses, or amendments regarding the right to a driver’s license, or to buy alcohol, or cigarettes, or apply for welfare, or cash a check, or make any large credit card purchase, or open a bank account, or rent an apartment, or get a marriage license, or rent a movie, etc, etc, etc.

    Read what the judge said.

    So none of those people without ID can get one? Seems there’s a huge hole in your flawed argument.
