The only people whose voting rights were violated in the last Presidential election were active duty military. The Obama administration knows it is hated and despised by most of our military; they intentionally kept tens of thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen from being able to vote.

HYPOCRISY, THY NAME IS OBAMA.

Agreed. Those right wing efforts in Florida and other states to suppress or at least stifle tha Black (and Latin) vote would have been even more extreme were the Voting Rights Act not available to block them. The Right is more or less determined to re-established Jim Crow in new forms.

There is NO excuse for opposing the requirement to show identification in order to vote. The only reason to oppose that is if you want to be able to defraud the voting process. Thanks for openly showing your criminal intent.

There is NO excuse for imposing new identification requirements. The only reason to impose such requirements is to DISFRANCHISE part of the electorate, or at least make the process so cumbersome that people will be discouraged from voting.
Thanks for openly showing your plutocratic and racist inclinations.

A reason does exist, voter fraud, there have been many identified cases of people, usually Negroes, voting up to four times, if everyone had ONE vote tied to an ID, then there can be no voter fraud.

What are you scared of, attai1? That the minorities will need someone to read their ID for them?

I'd say in this day and age, with a more mobile population, that voter identification is more important then ever. I think the country should have an ID scheme whereby you get NO benefits of the US without it, from welfare to voting, I bet you fried chicken and 'waddymelon' loving Negroes would be first in the cue for ID then.

Only a libtard, in fear of the shaky Democrat voter base, would object to people proving who they are to vote.

The ONLY way that could be true is if you honestly believe people of color are too stupid to meet identification requirements. I realize the Demoncrats have brain-washed you into believing that black America isn't good enough to survive without direct federal government intervention, but it isn't true. Once the Demoncrats stop buying black votes with entitlements, black America will survive, and thrive, just fine.
