I disagree with Holder. This is actually a step forward. No everyone is treated equal. No special rights for any select group of people. If discrimination arises, there is still a system is place to protect people's rights.

Everyone treated equal??? I suppose if the guy at the voting booth, checking everyone, thinks you will vote for a republican, you get to vote, if he thinks you won't, you can't vote. Is that what you mean by being treated equally?

We trivialize the right to vote by overturning voter ID laws. Without a voter verification process, we open the door for fraud and our elections lose whatever integrity they claim to still have. The real joke is when we send observers overseas to monitor other countries elections, as if our elections are above corruption.

Another IRS Official Takes the Fifth

Fox News

• Deputy IRS Director Greg Roseman, who aided the awarding of more than $500 million in agency contracts to a company owned by a friend of his, is the second IRS official in recent weeks to refuse to testify at a congressional hearing. Corruption at it’s finest.

Liberals never win on a level playing field, that's why they cheat and commit fraud.

You mean if you pass the test. A simple test really, just read out loud the words on this card and if you get it right you can vote.

Here is the test: "It is not legal for me to vote."

So you claim it is not legal for you to vote, no ballot for you.

Come on, do you really think they will let people vote whom they think will vote the "wrong" way?

Reading won't disqualify anyone from voting. I actually encourage people to learn how to read. I find it very useful. I would be more concerned About the rigging of electronic voting machines.

And this happens where? When?
And do you have a small guy dressed like you,standing next to you yelling, "Da plane"

Or is that why you feel the need for the so called black panthers to stand guard with clubs to make sure you know who to vote for?

Now that states are allowing illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses, the Democrats won't be so much opposed to voter identification.

Yes, but they still should be a citizen. Of course we all know that won't be the case either. ACORN got all the dead people voting they can create another miracle and get all the illegal’s voting.
