What kind of stupid sh*t is this? How is requiring someone to prove that they're legally able to vote denying them their rights?

Why don't we just stop requiring people to show a passport when entering the Country? Why not just "take their work for it" that they're not terrorists or drug-smugglers?

Holy sh*t, you could cut the stupidity in the Country with a knife.

I've decided that I'm black. Yep, I'm gonna sop my bread in some of that affirmative-action gravy before it gets cold...the thing is, I don't want you to ask me to PROVE that I'm black, because that clearly violates my rights.

Sure, I look white, but that's none of the government's business, so get my welfare check ready and fill my food-stamp card,'cause papa's got some shoppin' to do!

You know something? I'm feeling a little Puerto Rican, too!

You need a photo id to pick up a welfare check... so I'm not sympathetic. The only reason Dems hate voter ID is that it will take away their ability to cheat... and that's the only way they win elections.

Because the Obama base is welfare recipiants, Obama and Democratic want their voters to live off the public dime, requiring them to have ID's (They won't be able to produce) would erode the voter base, not to mention stopping illegal aliens from casting votes as well. The right to vote is not being taken away at all. it's being verified. Why should are troops be defending our right to vote and extend that right to people who are not registered or illegal to gain political favor with a party.. We don't work that way.. Require a Voter ID card. They aren't hard to get
