Most of us in TX aren't crazy gun toting, bible carrying rednecks. The major cities of Texas overwhelmingly voted for Obama! Dallas County; Obama 57% Romney 42%, Bexar County (San Antonio) Obama 52% Romney 47% and Travis County (Austin) Obama 60% Romney 38%. Impressive numbers, huh? Now, we just need a good solid Democrat to oppose Rick Perry. Are the Castro brothers busy?

All those numbers simply show that is where all the illegals live and vote regularly.

By the way as is the usual the libs must resort to insults and name calling.

Rick Perry spent $12 million of taxpayer dollars and put the entire force of the state government behind his effort to find voter fraud and found 4 possibilities, which could just as easily have been typgraphical errors.

It is flatly NOT TRUE that there is rampant voter fraud in Texas. It may or may not be true somewhere else.

But, by God, Rick Perry give it his best effort and a lot of OUR MONEY and couldn't prove there was any.

That would be unlike the billions of our money that obama gave to his union supporters and others so they could build plants in Mexico?

One thing that seems funny is that if as claimed, might note without a link to a reference, only 4 possibilties were found then how do these people explain that since 2002 the Texas Attorney General has over 50 Convictions for voter Fraud? That combined with over 300 cases referred to the Atty Generals office.
Makes one say HMMMMMMM, maybe some misleading data being presented by the libtards?
Unlike some I will post the link to the official statement from the Atty General.

I read the linked story. TEXAS HAS ALMOST 13 MILLION REGISTERED VOTERS!

50 cases of voter fraud in 10 years? 4 cases a year?

That's .000003 of 1%!

If you think that's a good use of $12 million taxpayer dollars, PLUS THE EXPENSE OF THAT FOOL ABBOTT'S FILING LAW SUITS LIKE a sweetaholic eats jellybeans, no wonder you can't make any sense.

Voter fraud is so rare in Texas that it is almost non-existent..000003 of 1% is a VERY small number, in case you don't understand math, either.

You still provide no supoorting evidence for your calims.
the math is that one fraudulent vote is one toomany.
You may be willing to sell your constitutional rights but most real Americans are not.

Utter bullsh*t. Your post is what a person says who has NOTHING to add to a discussion.

In Texas, so-called "voter fraud" is a made-up "issue" to inflame ignorant people over a non-existent problem.

The tragedy is that the money wasted by Perry could have actually done some good, if it had been used to help educate our backward students (for one example), instead of putting it into the pockets of Perry's buddies.

From the so-called researcher that has not provided one shred of supporting documentation to any of his claims. So tis you that is pure and utter BUllsh*t.
You now state," Voter Fraud is a made up issue", your words not mine yet I have provided you with proof of over 300 cases being forwarded to the Atty Gen and over 50 convictions. How is it, "Made Up" if there are convictions? Are you now accusing the State of Texas of deliberately placing innocent citizens in jail for crimes that are," Made Up"?
As to the money I again refer you back to your messiah. Regardless of the amount of money spent to combat an attack on one of our most precious rights it pales in comparison to obama's theft of billions of our dollars to pass on to his supporters and to prop up his pipe dreams.
So continue to show your stupidity rant all you like but until you have something substantive to contribute you will simply continue to look the fool.

Since these '50 people' were convicted of a crime, they have no right to privacy.
Who are they, what precinct did they vote in, who did they vote for?

"Examining the voter ID lie"
Mar 27th, 2012
by Charles Kuffner.

"Fewer than five complaints involving voter impersonations were filed with the Texas Attorney General’s Office from the 2008 and 2010 general elections, which drew more than 13 million voters.

“…the attorney general handled just 20 allegations of election law violations in the 2008 and 2010 elections.

"Most involved mail-in ballot or campaign finance violations, electioneering too close to a polling place or a voter blocked by an election worker.

“…every investigation has proven that the kind of fraud voter ID laws would address – voter impersonation – doesn’t really exist

Look it up. I provided the link to the Atty Gen site that put this info out. If you want the names etc then go to the public records and get them.

And of course an editorial is a better source than the Atty Gen that prosecuted the cases.
Notice the very narrow spectrum of violations that the editorial addresses.

Just a few examples, "a woman who submitted her dead mother's ballot, a paid operative who cast two elderly voters' ballots after transporting them to the polling place, a city council member who unlawfully registered ineligible foreign nationals to vote in an election that was decided by a 19-vote margin, a Starr County defendant who voted twice on Election Day, a Harris County man who used his deceased father's voter registration card to vote in an election, an election worker who pled guilty after attempting to vote for another individual with the same last name, and a Hidalgo County man who presented another voter's registration card and illegally cast that voter's ballot on Election Day."

From the Atty Gen official site.
Lets see photo ID could show that a women presenting her dead mothers ballot might prove she is not that dead person.
A person posting 2 ballots for people othet than himself. Photo ID might show he is neither of them.
Registration of Illegals?
A voter in Starr county might be prevented from voting twice in the same election if that voter had to present proper ID.
A person using his dead fathers voter registration card might be prevented if he had to show that he was indeed that dead person.
Someone voting because they had the same last name as another voter. Photo ID could have stopped that.
Presenting another persons voter ID and voting illegaly in Hidalgo county again proper ID would stop that.
So sorry but as these cases show, "THE KIND OF FRAUD VOTER ID LAWS WOULD ADDRESS DOES INDEED EXIST", and that is not opinion but it is fact!

Perry wouldn't stand a chance in a state where the voters wasn't so dumb and voted for the best man rather than the party he belongs to.

I vote for the individual not for a Republican, Democrat, Independent, or what ever anyone else wants to call themselves.

In Texas we have a dumber class of people and they can't see nor think past a party name, therefore we have to put up with bull sh!t,can't remember sh!t Rick Perry.

Now you know the rest of the story.

As is usual with your ilk you ignore the truth as it does not fit your foolish preconceived notions.
The facts prove you and your oped link to be false. The official Texas Atty Gen site gives the data. The link you posted as well as the made up study narrowed the criteria that they looked at so far that it was nearly impossible for any of the actual fraud to fit the criteria. Anything that did not completely fit the criteria was ignored.
So continue to follow along like a lemming and ignore the truth it is after all in your nature.

I guess if people, "Wasn't" so dumb they might elect obama. Oh they did! They is that dumb!
