I believe in IDs, not photo ID requirements. Can't you people get anything right? These people have ID.
An ID without a photo could belong to anybody. Correct?

Much more difficult to use somebody else's ID when there's a photograph on it.

Certainly, if you would deny the right to vote to 10-12% of the population, you musty have proof of significant voter fraud that is preventable with a photo ID.
Nobody is denying the right to vote to anybody, except those who are dead, comatose, or otherwise ineligible to vote.

Nonsense. Because there were so few instances of failed priests, the church did not need a uniform policy until torte lawyers came for a payday.
Not to mention, years ago all sorts of sins were hushed up to protect the reputation of institutions.
fred is sure that you were sent off to have your illegitimate baby at a convent somewhere in Finland to save your family shame.
And they call me drunk. Oh yes, if only all the victims would have stayed quiet and let the priests keep raping them, all would be well in the world. You're really effed up en la cabeza.

Let us pray ...

Hail Barry, full of grapes, the Force ain't with thee;
Bested are you by real men, but blessed are you by the fruits in the room.
Oily Barry, fatherless child, play with the sinners,
now and until the hour of your November demise ...

Can I get an AMEN?

You'll have to ask your esteemed liberal leaders about voting fraud.

After all, it's them who want felons to vote.....illegal aliens to vote......dead people to vote.....

Copy & paste your meaningless diatribe on another forum.....that crap just ain't gonna fly here.
Study after study has proven that voter fraud is mostly imaginary.

""Summary

* Fraud by individual voters is both irrational and extremely rare.
* Many vivid anecdotes of purported voter fraud have been proven false or do not demonstrate fraud.
* Voter fraud is often conflated with other forms of election misconduct.
* Raising the unsubstantiated specter of mass voter fraud suits a particular policy agenda.
* Claims of voter fraud should be carefully tested before they become the basis for action.

Fraud by individual voters is both irrational and extremely rare. Most citizens who take the time to vote offer their legitimate signatures and sworn oaths with the gravitas that this hard-won civic right deserves. Even for the few who view voting merely as a means to an end, however, voter fraud is a singularly foolish way to attempt to win an election. Each act of voter fraud risks five years in prison and a $10,000 fine - but yields at most one incremental vote. The single vote is simply not worth the price.

Because voter fraud is essentially irrational, it is not surprising that no credible evidence suggests a voter fraud epidemic. There is no documented wave or trend of individuals voting multiple times, voting as someone else, or voting despite knowing that they are ineligible. Indeed, evidence from the microscopically scrutinized 2004 gubernatorial election in Washington State actually reveals just the opposite: though voter fraud does happen, it happens approximately 0.0009% of the time. The similarly closely-analyzed 2004 election in Ohio revealed a voter fraud rate of 0.00004%. National Weather Service data shows that Americans are struck and killed by lightning about as often.

Many vivid anecdotes of purported voter fraud have been proven false or do not demonstrate fraud. Although there are a few scattered instances of real voter fraud, many of the vivid anecdotes cited in accounts of voter fraud have been proven false or vastly overstated. In Missouri in 2000, for example, the Secretary of State claimed that 79 voters were registered with addresses at vacant lots, but subsequent investigation revealed that the lots in question actually housed valid and legitimate residences. Similarly, a 1995 investigation into votes allegedly cast in Baltimore by deceased voters and those with disenfranchising felony convictions revealed that the voters in question were both alive and felony-free.

Where is it in the US Constitution??
After all, you nitwits are all about the US COnstitution, aren't you?? Unless it disagrees with your prejudices.
The Constitution is more concerned about Gov't disenfranchisement of voters than forcing them to produce papers.
There are Amendments to the Constitution that protect citizens from Gov't overreach with regards to their voting rights.
They're called the 19th and 24th Amendment, you nitwit.
Hey Dumbass ------- Voting is a PRIVILEGE, not a RIGHT.

Rush Limbaugh's ratings have dropped sharply in several major markets following the firestorm over his comments about Sandra Fluke, Politico reports.

Limbaugh called Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" for her birth control advocacy, sparking condemnation from President Obama on down and causing many advertisers to flee his show.(One major radio CEO recently admitted that the controversy had cost him millions of dollars

The conservative radio host's ratings fell 27 percent in the key 25-54 demo in New York City, 31 percent in Houston-Galveston, 40 percent in Seattle-Tacoma, and 35 percent in Jacksonville, according to a selection of the March 29-April 25 Arbitron ratings provided by an industry source.

""Many of the inaccurate claims result from lists of voters compared to other lists - of deceased individuals, persons with felony convictions, voters in other states, etc. These attempts to match information often yield predictable errors. In Florida in 2000, a list of purged voters later became notorious when it was discovered that the “matching” process captured eligible voters with names similar to - but decidedly different from - the names of persons with felony convictions, sometimes in other states entirely. A 2005 attempt to identify supposed double voters in New Jersey mistakenly accused people with similar names but whose middle names or suffixes were clearly different, such as “J.T. Kearns, Jr.” and “J.T. Kearns, Sr.,” of being the same person. Even when names and birthdates match across lists, that does not mean there was voter fraud. Elementary statistics students are often surprised to learn that it is more likely than not that among just 23 individuals, two will share a birthday. Similar statistics show that for most reasonably common names, it is extremely likely that at least two people with the same name in a state will share the same date of birth. The ostensible “matches” may not represent the same person at all.

Other allegations of fraudulent voting often turn out to be the result of common clerical errors, incomplete information, or faulty assumptions. Most allegations of voter fraud simply evaporate when more rigorous analysis is conducted.""

This is simply a disgusting attempt by Republiclowns to disenfranchise minority voters.

Nobraina even admitted it.

If the Church excommunicated prominent Catholoics for their actions, it would make a much stronger statement than futile lawsuits.

ACORN & NAACP stooges go out in droves & pick up anybody with a pulse and take them to the polls.

Democrats have even been caught giving cigarettes and cash to homeless people for their vote, who don't even know what day of the week it is, much less who is running for President.
