To liberals the ends justifies the means, and the agenda is almighty.

He could have added that you also need one to cash a check, buy a drink in a bar or drive a car.

Or take the SATs.

This happens in Philadelphia, and it is spearheaded by the thug unions. Nothing in this WORLD filthier than a Teamster on election day.

Vote processing... a challenger sits at the polling place and keeps track of which Democrats showed up to vote, and towards the end of the day the rest of the electorate signs the card and magically casts their ballot.

In some heavily minority districts where actual turnout is around 20%, they frequently have 90% or higher actually cast ballots.

And of course you can’t videotape this fraud so there’s no way to get this prosecuted. The union monkeys will work you over if you dare to challenge them on this.

Pittsburgh isnt much better. The dem machine is out full force ensuring that only Dems are counted. Election day in PA is like “Dawn of the Dead”. When hell is full, the dead walk the earth and Vote in PA.

Yep. Only somebody wanting to commit fraud or support fraud would object to Photo Id.

We haven’t seen “voter fraud” yet. Iowa and New Hampshire have already shown us how crooked the 2008 election is going to be. The fix is in. Dems win.

Sorry, I meant that in response to...Voter Fraud Has Long Been a Problem, and Photo IDs Will Definitely Help. IOW...”English only ballots” will help thwart vote fraud.

Sorry, Democrats, but I remember Chicago, and you are on the wrong side in this one.

Same thing in The Region. Lake County, Indiana.

If I were on the Supreme Court, I'd rule that voter ID laws are not only allowed by the Constitution but required. A legitimate voter is just as disenfranchised when his vote is canceled out by a ghost voter as when he is not allowed to vote. I would also require paper trails and open source code for electronic voting machines.

Democrats say thousands of “elderly and poor” don’t have photo ID.
_____________________________

On the other hand, Democrats
-—brag about their voter registration drives
-—tell us they have an awesome voter calling system
-—offer rides to the polls
-—babysit your children if necessary
-—plow your driveway

You get my drift. They say they’re totally connected to their constituents.

SO. WHY DON’T THEY HAVE ALL THEIR PHONE BANKS ASK IF THE PERSON HAS PHOTO ID??!! If they believe there’s this huge problem, identify the folks and help them get documentation. THe fact that they don’t do this puts the lie to their claims.

[Oh, one other thing. If those “elderly” voters don’t have ID, how did they sign up for their Social Security benefits?]

This isn’t the only way they commit voter fraud. My wife and I were guardians for her aunt who was in a nursing home due to alzheimer’s. I walked in one day and there was a “nice lady” there “helping” her to vote. When I asked to see the ballot she refused, until I informed her that my wife’s aunt did not have the legal right to vote since she had been declared incompetent and was under a guardianship. When she gave me the ballot, shazam, she had “voted” straight democRAT. I tore up the ballot, at which point the woman threatened to have me arrested. I handed her my cell phone and told her to dial 911. She hurriedly left the room. When I complained to the management of the nursing home, they said there was nothing they could do.

I’d like the dems to show us one adult who has physically voted in the past who is able to live in today’s society without a photo ID and have that person explain to us why it would be a hardship for them to obtain one.

If asked: who exactly is being disenfranchised? , they will point to a Hispanic and say him. To which you will reply: well, is he here legally or illegally? To which they will respond: beside the point! Then they will immediately brand you a racist and accuse you of intimidation.

And yet, somehow our nation fluorished for 230 some odd years without photo ID, or to put it another way, without U.S. Citizens having to provide their papers at every whim of the federal government.

It is astonishing to me to watch supposed conservatives buy into a scenario when they will have to provide their papers to vote, to fly, to ride by rail and soon to drive down the highway.

Pretty soon our car licenses will be recorded as we pass checkpoints along the way to our desitnation.

Not only will idiots track our every key punch on the internet, they will track our every movement.

This nation is no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave. We are the land of the cowards and the home of the feckless.
