OH shit and now I won't be able to vote 12 times like I did on the last election.
I guess that voting for my dead grandparents or as Daniel Boone, Duffy duck and Mickey mouse won't be accepted any more even with my Democratic party poll watchers.

There is no evidence of significant voter fraud. Mickey Mouse never votes. The aim is to make it harder to vote for voters who will likely vote Democratic, like students and the poor and the elderly and people who live in big cities and don't drive. Not as relevant in Arkansas as many other states, but the trend of voter intimidation among republican legislatures is spreading like cancer.

The article said ID! Driving has nothing to do with an ID. You have twisted it to make it sound like its to bully the plans poor that don't or can't drive. But in REALITY it has nothing to do with driving. If you are a US citizen you can get an ID. So stop with the ignorance. What's so bad about proving who you are and that you're actually a US citizen? Um nothing at all. Stupid liberals.

Yes I do. Mickey Mouse registered to vote a couple hundred times or whatever, but never once voted. That sht didn't involve any voter fraud.

Really? Driving has nothing to do with an ID? Have you never drove before? The same place that give that ID, which is acceptable as a voter ID, will provide the other IDs. Often times people have to take a 1/2 a point at their place of employment to renew their drivers license. Will people who don't drive do the same thing to get a voter ID? Maybe. Maybe not. But it's undeniable that it effects people like students, the poor, the elderly, and people who live in big cities and don't drive the most. People who are more likely to vote Democratic. Hence the laws by republican legislatures.

Blah blah blah leftish liberal dribble. It's already a law that a person has to have an ID. So all this is doing is making them show it to vote. Your word twisting can't get you outta this you liberal scum pos.

There is not already a law that a person has to have an ID. There are no universal ID laws. They are unconstitutional.

Horseback, it's gonna be ok. The moral zeitgeist is on our side. While we are surrounded by red neck ass hats they mean well. In 20 years the new generation will step up and these ignorant shitkickers will see reason.

If a person is detained for whatever reason they must show an ID to prove who they are. Also if a person has no ID then they can be detained for a short period in order to try to prove who they are. True, as long a person is within law they don't have to provide an ID. But, when they ate outside of that they do have to! Check ur laws!

No, they don't. Again, universal ID laws are not Constitutional. The U.S. Supreme Court said that a long time ago. Do you not remember the controversy in Paragould about comments made by our Police Chief along the lines of your ramblings above that made national news? He was slapped down. He was wrong. You are wrong.

Go break the law, when they ask for ID don't give it to them, then see for yourself.

I don't have to break the law in order to prove you wrong. All I have to do is cite it.
