Voter ID is not too much to ask to vote. If you wanted to get inside the democratic convention in 12 you had to show ID. You have to show ID for many other things as well. There is voter fraud and that is documented. How widespread it is would be debatable. Have states give photo ID for free to any who need them and be done with it. If there is no charge for someone to get an ID I don't know how the left can spin it as voter suppression.

It should be free and that would take away the voter suppression argument.

I think in the states that have the law it's already free - I'm not sure but it seems like it's usually part of the legislation.

 

Ohio and such is cheap, but you can vote with a bank statement or bill or something - don't need ID

Oh it probably should be free but that won't change the opposition. Then it will be that whatever the process to get one is is just too complicated for many Americans.

Call me undemocratic, but I figure if you are too lazy or stupid to get your shit together for an identification card I don't care about your vote.

:)

 

The reason we pretend it's wonderful to have a high voter turnout is that the stupidest and laziest people will vote Democrat.

Awesome argument, Steve...

Here, here... as with the supporting documents to obtain the ID.

 

 

The problem is that more voter fraud occurs through means other than in person... and more occurs during mass registration campaigns than at elections... especially when companies are paid to register voters.

Would a Mexican or Nicaragua ID suffice I wonder?

Awesome argument, Steve...

 

Thank you. I assumed if it wasn't somebody might actually be able to refute it.

 

Reason being that some people are too poor or not smart enough or incompetent or too uninterested or too shiftless to scratch together some sort of identification and vote .

 

Now granted there is probably not a lot of voter fraud but somebody's making a big deal out of this situation.

 

What would you guess this is?

Yes they do. And they should have an identification. Same as any other thing you do in society.

Even if you don't like them.

as long as the ID is free

Im with Steve...what's it take to get an ID?.....$5 bucks and an hour of your time.....if you cant accomplish that, then should you participate in making important decisions?....I dont think so....

 

Nothing is "free"....just as is argued all over this page, who's paying for that "free" ID?

 

Wouldnt that be a socialist policy?....free ID's for everybody?

Except it's against the Constitution to charge a fee to vote

Well....I guess it's semantics....I see it as charging a fee 'for an ID".....not to vote....and think everyone should have an ID anyway. ...and it makes sense to confirm who you are prior to casting a vote....and a valid ID is how you do that....

 

Honestly, why get so uptight about a $5 ID....???....especially in this day and age of concern about illegals, terrorists, etc,etc,etc....

 

Were losing certain rights left and right, in the name of security....and a $5 ID is an issue?...bah

It is the democratic party who fights voter ID laws. I don't think $5 for an ID should be an issue and responsible people should have ID but it is the democrats who are the ones filing the lawsuits and making the argument it is voter ID laws that discriminate against blacks, Hispanics and lower income people. If I were a black or Hispanic, I would be extremely offended at such an argument because they are basically saying that they are not smart enough or capable enough to obtain a voter ID like you and me are. Their argument is very racially demeaning and insensitive.

 

Anyway for me I want to see voter ID upheld and if giving one out for free ends the debate I say do it.

Nobody charges a fee to register a gun?

 

Concealed carry requires a decent fee though

There's an article about fees to own guns.

 

Speaking of constitutional, which it isn't, there is a fee for a wedding license.

Thank lawd for Ohio. I've seen some of these states restrict magazine capacity and such - which would also suck. Does 10 rounds versus 15 really make a difference? You can kill a giant with 10 rounds.

Oh you can kill with a Derringer.

Whittling away at firepower is just a slippery slope.

It isn't that hard to understand is it?

The best part of voter ID is somehow the 90 year old woman at the polls will be able to spot a fake. If people want to commit fraud they'll find a way to do it. Based on national voting statistics there is more of a problem with people not participating than there is with the people that do.
