Photo ID for Voters
Posted in the Opelousas Forum
#1 Mar 21, 2012
There has been alot of talk lately about requiring photo id's for voting this coming November.
Texas wants to impose a photo ID law - was shut down. Said too many illegals would be voting.
My question is this: "Who registered all of these illegals? and when?" That would have been the time to require photo ID and when it was discovered they were here illegally, send them home.
The problem with requiring a photo ID right now is Americans without a driver's license would have their voting right taken away from them (so not American). Sometimes I wonder if maybe that is the agenda - limit participation in the next election (NOT so American).

I can't wait to vote for Obama . He is the only president who has ever tried to do something for poor people and the poor people of Church Point are too dumb to figure that out.

To the racists and terrorists who voted for the Muslim in chief, who is currently shutting down the government: White Americans have always had to show a pictured ID with a social security number. To prove age, citizenship, and who you are.
Those who do not have a driver's license are able to show their social security card and a pictured ID card which one can get through local government offices.
This insures that no illegals or non Americans vote nor that anyone under the proper age gets to vote. It has worked for all of these years without incident until white hating blacks and treasoners of the constitution started calling it "racist" in order to give illegals the opportunity to vote, and to give the impression that blacks are somehow being denied a vote.
Curious, you moron and racist, these illegals are not registered. What a brain you have. You and Gervais like Obamas blackness more than justice. If whites have to follow the rules, everyone will. Or whites will be given billions upon billons in reparations That means less and less for the black plague that is destroying this country.

You are too stupid for words. I know the illegals are NOT registered, but that is what the GOPer's were screaming about, why they want VOTER PHOTO ID (driver license...).
A lot of poor older Americans (70's, 80's, 90's) who don't have a driver's license nor a copy of their birth certificate are the AMERICANS that will have their right to vote taken from them. UN-AMERICAN!
The GOP got caught screwing with the vote last year. FACT. GOP wanted to make changes at the last minute and the court came in and said "NO"!
Study after study says that there is NO REAL ISSUE with voting fraud, apparently other than what the GOP got caught doing.
MY POINT, phase in the photo ID requirement! Issue solved!

The solution is simple,if you are a citizen and can prove it then you vote,if you are not a citizen then you can not vote.When I turned 18 I had to got to Crowley and register,i was given a voter id card.Every time I went to the polls they asked for my license,no problem I had to show it.If a person does not drive they can go to driver license place and get an id which can be used to vote.If people have problems showing an I they are probably here illegally.

Not everyone drives a car!!!!!!
A lot of older people Don't Drive!!!!
The move is to go with state picture ID's for the ones without Dr. Licenses. Most people are in favor of this. But it needs to be phased in like everything else is.
IT IS NOT AMERICAN to take the vote away from an AMERICAN!
Again, study after study reported that there is NOT an issue with VOTER FRAUD, other than what the GOP does. Seems more like the GOP wants to take the vote away from the older poor people.
Why do you suppose they are SO AGAINST immigration reform? They feel if they legalize the "Dreamers", it will be more Dems against them.
They are playing a numbers game. With the help of the GOP in Congress, the 1% wants to take over (run the US like China). Is that what you want; or do you still want a taxpayer run Gov't?
The elections should be about what the majority of the American people want; NOT RIGGED!
CLEAN OUT CONGRESS!!!!!!!!!!

Rick Scott Administration Acknowledges Voter Purge Flaws
Advocacy groups called the review of non-citizens a thinly veiled attempt to disqualify Hispanic and African-American voters, who tend to vote for Democratic candidates. A disproportionately large number of those identified in 2012 were either Hispanic or black, the groups said.
Last year, Florida officials said they had drawn up an initial list of 182,000 potential non-citizens. But that number was reduced to fewer than 200 after election officials acknowledged errors on the original list.
In identifying potential non-citizens, Florida officials sent their information to county election supervisors who then mailed letters to voters requesting proof they were U.S. citizens. If no response was received, the voter was dropped from the rolls.
WHAT if this happened to you???? Seems to me that the VOTER FRAUD was mostly committed by the GOP last year trying to take the vote away from AMERICANS. Just shameful.

The majority of these older Americans you reference are getting some type of funds to live on. Most are likely retired or on Social Security. As such, they are required to have those funds directly deposited in a bank. They can't do that without proper ID and YOU are aware of this. Maybe not, since you seem to be just that dense! So I will enlighten you. They all have a form of ID if they are getting any kind of money to live on, if they're getting food stamps, etc. And just going to a doctor requires proper ID as does getting prescription drugs. Don't try to BS this one, it won't work. Proper voter ID is crucial. I've always had to produce an ID and did so without ever once feeling slighted or feeling like I was being racially profiled.

Curious, just imagine how the world has managed to go on without your racist, anti-American agenda for so many damned ears! Trouble makers, shit stirrers. You are just an Obamabot with a cool-aid fried brain who thinks anyone actually gives a shit about your blatant racism.
Only blacks and non legals have tried this little BS and it will not work. Oh, that this country would stop giving white money to all of you!
If what you say is so, then whites have been discriminated horribly against since day one. I'm sure your very concerned about that, right?
#13 Oct 7, 2013
Racist, Anti-American agenda - are you on drugs or need to be?
Again, over and over again, all studies with regard to VOTER FRAUD has found little voter fraud. The GOP was caught several times last year screwing with the vote. FACT. That is what you should be screaming about! They were trying to drop Dem AMERICANS off of the voter rolls and got caught! They were throwing away Voter Registrations for Dem Americans and got caught! Why are you not screaming about that?
ONE MORE TIME, PHASE in PHOTO ID, leave the older Americans alone!!!! You do realize we are speaking of the ones older than 75, right? Younger than that have photo ID's or can more easily get one.
Are you an American? I am starting to believe you don't know all the facts. Turn off Faux News. Come to the light of truth!
#14 Oct 7, 2013
Yes, I am American! Yes I have seen the elderly vote with no problems in America. Yes, your so called studies are leftst-racist crapola, just like you.
You will do as the whites have had to do since the beginning of time. We are not going to phase in Photo Id, it is mandatory law in America. If whites have to do it, blacks and other citizens of different race will have to. Speaking of, I do not hear any other race in America trying to make shit about our voting process. Just blacks and illegals. Starting to see a pattern yet?
Do you honestly believe anyone does not see through your racist agenda here?

Luvin Obama's shutdown! Cant wait till the welfare checks, the foodstamps, the WIC, all of the white sponsored programs are shutdown!
BTW, did you see on the news today that a black caucus in Florida voted to begin impeachment of Obama?
#16 Oct 8, 2013
Turn off Faux News; it is the GOP in the House that caused the shutdown! Cannot figure out how to clean up this mess they made!
The debt ceiling should not come down to a vote or shutdown the Gov't.
Congress passed the laws that allowed the money to be spent; now the GOP House does not want to pay the debt. The TeaBaggers should be ashamed of themselves!!
The GOP is fighting with itself at the Gov't employees expense; not to mention at the expense of our fragile economy. The whole world is stunned by this dog and pony show.
#17 Oct 8, 2013
Boehner needs to allow a 'clean bill' vote today!!!
Gov't checks to people are what makes the economy go round. It this shutdown continues, you will start to see layoffs.
Don't be surprise if it happens to you.
#18 Oct 8, 2013
Curious, your black ass has been nailed! The truth manifested. The shutdown will go on for a long time. Whites have no problem with it.
Blacks, not so much! You are gonna rot in hell!
#19 Oct 8, 2013
I bet the Shutdown ends by Tuesday of next week.
They want to pay the furloughed Gov't employees for NOT going to work now. Why shut down the Gov't?
The thing that kills me the most is that you people don't even understand the shutdown.
Congress has already spent the money (creating laws) so now the US has to pay the bill. This is making other countries that lend the US money nervous and will probably raise interest rates. Cost taxpayers even MORE! Remember last time, our rating went down?
Think about the wars, Senior Rx and bailouts from the 2000's and you will understand why this country is in trouble. Too many things were put on the credit card while giving tax breaks to the 1%(the ones with the money).
Now the GOP House wants to create another committee before they will agree to a 'clean vote'. WHAT? As POTUS said today, they can do what they want to. Just VOTE!
We need living wage jobs so more people can afford to live and get health insurance! This will make welfare costs go down and, in time, make health insurance more affordable for ALL.
Want to get rid of Senior Rx, Medicare and SS?
That is what the GOP wants to do. Why do you suppose they are so adamant about getting rid of Obamacare. Keep in mind, this is still in the "free enterprise system".
I would not be surprise to find that the GOP is flooding the enrollment website or is it there are that many Americans who want to learn if they can find cheaper plans? Either way, they are going to continue to work on the website till all is served.
Again, do you want Corporate America (1%) to run the country?
We need to limit campaign contributions in amounts and allow only citizens to make contributions (NO MORE CORPORATE CONTRIBUTIONS). People are tired of the ads! Ads need to be monitored and taken down when found that false info is being spread with a HUGE FINE. Heavy jail sentences for those caught messing with the vote process. CLEAN OUT CONGRESS!
The vote is an entitlement for ALL law abiding adult Americans!!!!

Curious, if your head was not so far up Obama's ass, you might not be braindead.
#21 Oct 9, 2013
This coming from a party that is, and has been, fighting with itself to a point of shutting down the Gov't. To save face, they want to pay Gov't employees NOT TO WORK! Where is the savings to taxpayers in that?
Edit yourself before you post about others.
Most Americans believe as I do and so does the Court system.
Instead of posting ugly STUPID comments, encourage the GOP House to VOTE a clean bill!!!!
Again, 90% of Americans wanted "universal background checks", but the GOP voted with the NRA (1%). 99% want to keep their new Patient Protection Rights, but yet the GOP is voting with the Insurance corporations (1%).
Again, why not let this play out for a couple of years? Because they know it will WORK! They are running scared!
CLEAN OUT CONGRESS! Take back the vote from Corporate America!
