People have to show identification when they first register to vote. The new ID laws are very difficult for many minorities, elderly people, and students to come up with if they don't drive or have lost their birth certificates.<quoted text>
"Why dont YOU prove a person is illegally voting rather than forcing people to prove theyre not breaking the law"? An ID card should take care of that.
The penalty for voter impersonation is 5 years in jail and $10,000. You'd have to be as stupid as a Tbagger to take that chance for just one fraudulent vote. There are very few cases of voter impersonation fraud.
And it isn't just the new ID laws that the republican Nazis are doing to suppress Democratic voters. They're also limiting voting days, and even challenging students' right to vote. They're also closing polling places in areas where there are Democratic majorities.
It's funny that the Tbaggers want few restrictions on people buying guns-- such as allowing terrorists on the don-not-fly lists to go out and buy any firearms and ammunition they want. But they want to limit peoples' right to vote.
