Too late for all that now. The country is already ruined. This same time next year Obama will already have this country over 20 TRILLION DOLLARS IN DEBT. So the GOP might as well save their breath and stop wasting their time. Some states will start seceding in 2014. HAHAHA!!!!

If you are who you say you are you should have no problem with this. Also if you cannot afford a few dollars to get a photo ID card, then should you really be voting on local/state/federal matters that include other people's money? That being said, I have not seen any laws prohibiting blacks, poor people, dems, conservatives, or anyone elso from getting an ID.
Very simple dynamics here, gang. Don't overcomplicate it...
The Libs believe that the billionaires of this country want to rig the election and suppress voting to favor them. So does that mean the carpenter making $30,000 who has a driver's license will not be able to vote should this law be enacted, thus the rich win? No, not at all. He can vote for sure. The vast majority of the so-called "working poor" will still be able to vote.

The Repubs believe that the Dems participate in shady voting practices. Now, given the track records of cities like Philly, Chicago, Boston, etc., why is this such a shock? Yes, a voter ID bill would hurt Dem voters far more than Rep voters. But why is this?

As a previous poster said, who are these people who have no ID? How do they vote...how do they live...are they the perpetual "takers" from society? Do the folks who indeed have IDs lean more toward "givers," all other things being equal?

This ID squabble has more to do with the Dems trying to insure the less informed, less read and less intelligent can cast their votes, which will automatically be for the donkey. Then what happens when these poor, uneducated, ill-informed vote? Dems are elected and what?...Dems raise them up to become wealthy, successful Americans? No, Dems will keep them receiving benefits, goodies and freebies. That is how the "Great Society" works under the Dems. If you doubt that, just look at the past forty years.
Look at the numbers in the past four years regarding food stamps and government assistance.

Frankly, it scares me that only about half the electorate votes, and the level of many of those voters' intelligence is in the sub-basement. Who the hell are the other 50 percent who don't vote? Scary!

This law is a good idea-it just doesn't go far enough. What we need is a NATIONAL id card. Something most modern countries have. The card would establish US citizenship and be regulated by the defense department. After all, they are responsible for ensuring the identity of those who fight and die for our freedoms that the libs want to give to any piece of schit that walks into a polling place.

One better, If your paying taxes and/or have reached retirement, you can vote. If your on the government dole, you have to sit out.

better yet a $100 penalty for not voting, then we'll actually be able to pass effective legislation and run the country responsibly

On our way to national "identity" cards, talk about government control over peoples freedom! Brought to you by those who say they are concerned about our liberties and rights, what a smoke screen for what they really want, total control over all aspects of our lives; in the home, in the community and in our thoughts and beliefs (if we don't agree with them).

Voter ID paranoia is counterproductive, and only alienates Repubs. from an increasingly powerful voting bloc even further. Statiscally it won't even make a difference; card everybody. Presidents are elected through electoral votes, not popular vote.
The Repubs. really have no strategy left except for copying what the Dems do, but with a few more perks. Out-perk the Dems. will be their strategy.
It's already starting with our governors focus on education, an area that has been regularly cut and scaled back, but now is in the forefront.
If you can't beat them, join them ...then beat them. The only viable option left for Repubs.

Voter suppression huh? You have GOT to be kidding me. Where is the logic in NOT wanting to show photo ID of who you are in order to have the privilege to participate in important matters such as voting. You know, in this day and time, it is utterly ridiculous for people to say that basic requirements for such an important issue as voting is considered "voter suppresion" when asked to simply show that you are who you say you are. Hey, I know, I have a check I want to write to you for cash, but I don't want to prove it is my account or that I am who I say I am. Will you cash it? I don't think so! I bet you would not! Same logic-no ID, no cash, no ID, no vote! This is not suppression, this is common sense! One that protects OUR rights to vote!

Papers please. To think this country used to be known the world over as the land of the free.

Also, I can assure you that there is no citizenship requirement to obtain a driver's license from the DMV. All that is required is a proof of lawful residency.

I don't see how all these allegedly "disenfranchised" people can make it to the polls to vote, but can't make it to DMV to get a photo ID? This whole issue would be LAUGHABLE if it weren't so serious. Stealing an election is not funny.

Let's just think about what our friend Huckleberry is proposing here... A national id card enshrining the principle of Federal superiority over matters that had previously been the domain of the states. To be distributed and enforced by the Federal military acting with police enforcement powers. Everybody got that?

If a liberal had proposed this idea, Huckleberry (good small government conservative that he/she is) would've crapped his/her pants at the very notion.
