Reality Check

United States

Why bother voting, you ask? Well, if you are a black American man, a woman of any ethnicity, or an 18-20-year-old, you needn't have asked yourself that question 141, 92, and 41 years ago, respectively. It would have been illegal for you to vote, and that ought to be reason enough to do it now.

The New York Times says Obama's chance of victory would be an amazing 91% if everyone who's registered actually votes this year.

Here's the article:
http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2012 ...
The problem is that Democrats almost invariably do worse among actual voters than among registered voters. The reason is the simple fact that the demographic groups that register Democrat are harder to get to the polls than those who vote Republican.
Still, even among actual voters Obama is likely going to win solidly. The chances that Obama will win goes from 90 percent to 68 percent, but still that's a pretty good margin. And that's before Obama's convention bounce comes into play.

You can get an ID just for voting, but it costs 35$ and takes a lot of time, in todays world most people think their vote doesn't matter so they will be discouraged, not to mention if your poor that 35$ can be the difference between eating for a few days and not. Everyone write your congressmen.

Why is it only the liberals screaming against voter ID. They don't want fair elections? I bet these same lazy scum have an ID to get their EBT cards. Anytime you go to a doctor, buy your liquor or drive a car you have to have ID. The libs know if they keep dead people from voting they can't win. Most states that have voter id laws have showed an increase in voting.

Stop me if you heard this one. See, these ten nuns walk into a polling station and the guy in charge says,“Whoa, Sisters! What do think you’re doing?”“Voting,”“Well, not here, ladies; not without your ID!” The ten quite elderly Sisters, including a 98 year-old, had long ago given up driving.

Come on, the catholic church will spurge to pay for their ID's at the DMV. It's amazing how people can get to the poles but unable to go to the DMV for a Identification Card.

Victoria Woodhull ran for President in 1872 before women could vote, and nominated the freed slave Fredrick Douglas as her running mate.

Catholics Flee Romney-Ryan. "No actual Catholic could ever find anything but puerile cruelty in the works of Ayn Rand, or rally to the idea that home-care for the elderly should be sacrificed to reduce tax rates for the super-rich. American Catholics are just not that dumb ...about their faith. "

What? How does this have anything to do with getting a DMV Idenification card? But since you made the statement, I know quite a few Catholics voting for Romney. They just can't afford another 4 years of Obama.

You missed the point, nobody even Catholics can afford 4 more years of Obama. Insulting Baton Rouge, LA because you have no constructive input proves you to be the typical stereotype of voting by emotion.

Strangely enough the catholic vote has gone with the eventual winner of the presidency since 1948 and thus being Obama will win his re election
