They all are Marxist-Lenin ideologies. Obama's economic agenda and social vision for America is not American or Constitutional.
there is nothing unconstitutional about any of those, dear...why are you such a poo citizen?

and....none of obama's programs go nearly as far in those areas as Marx or Lenin would have.

you are once again parroting ideas and concepts you have absolutely no ability to comprehend thus once again you are making a fool of yourself.

are you people actually thinking when you post this idiotic crap?
Just an fyi. When you die and are on SS the SSA will call your heirs within a couple of days demanding back the portion of your SSI check for the percentage of the month left. Doesn't matter if it was spent they want it back. Seems there could be some way for them to inform the voter registration of your demise.

but when they have to tie into gov't databases why is it it never works like that?

again, you silly id of just having an ID would do no good...there would have to be a statewide, realtime data base and even a national one for your supposition that people vote across state lines, thus meaning the feds would be involved in state election processes.

and remember, those data bases must be continuously be maintained and updated and rebuilt as new operating systems are being used by the rest of the world...

now if you are willing to do this just to stop the two cases of voter fraud you have documented that this dramatic step would prevent then you are nuts.

<quoted text>when you register to vote there, do you need to show your proof of citizenship? i know you do not here in MN..all you need is a DL. so if an illegal got a DL or other ID, they could register to vote.
like i said many times, the voter ID laws proposed will do absolutely nothing to prevent all the supposed fraud out there and none of the cases idiots like roxlo are wasting their time digging up. i think so far he has four cases and two of them no laws could ever prevent in any way. the other cases would not have been prevented by just showing an ID.
and all this is still a moot point as we really, really need a national ID program (that is not 19th century like the SSN) in this nation, so every citizen would have that ID anyways.
We have motor voter in combination with E-Verify so yes some have to prove citizenship by providing a certified copy of an original birth certificate. I say some because we have a herd of furriners here many of whom have no BC and no possible way of obtaining one.

We also have a Republican controlled legislature and the bulk of the appointees are R's so it's a clustrfk. check this out www.gathergoget.com

A unique number on the Photo ID card that is entered into a data base when the person arrives at poll would prevent the same individual from voting again at another poll using the SAME ID.
again, only if there is a real time, statewide or nation wide database to back up that ID.

the proposed program in Mn that was voted down would have cost several millions just for the ID reading machines... just for the machines, no data base to back it up was even proposed.

Obamanomics...

Self-identified 'middle class' radically shrinks under Obama

The “fundamental transformation” President Obama promised us is well underway. The largely self-reliant, proud, and prosperous American middle class is shrinking, and the dependent, subsidized, and generally envious lower middle class and lower class has expanded dramatically since 2008.

is your jury duty rolls tied to your voter registration like here in MN (is that nationwide?)

that would possibly deter illegal from trying to register also, as that would be one more way they could be caught out as being here illegally.

You do have a problem staying focused don't you? Galt is against the Prison Rape Elimination Act and so is Rick Perry. Galt took offense at my calling Perry a "disgusting ignoramous" for his announcement last week that will not adopt the federal standards aimed at combating rape in prisons, saying that it would be "impossible" for Texas to comply with Prison Rape Elimination Act.
So you see, my dear, it is you and yours who think prisoners raping each other is a good thing. Owe up to it.
Galt is opposed to the federal government micro-managing state functions........

perhaps Texas has better ways to reduce the incidence of prison rape than the federal standards.....

American 'Thinker'? lol

Today’s decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission suggests that we’re likely seeing this same dynamic again. On the surface, McCutcheon—which strikes down limits on the overall amount an individual can give to candidates—and its 2010 predecessor, Citizens United—which ended restrictions on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions—may seem like good news for the GOP. In 2012, after all, Mitt Romney received almost 80 percent of his campaign funds from the kinds of big donors the Supreme Court has now liberated to give even more. The Obama campaign, by contrast, received only half its funding from large donors. And the single donor who has so far shown himself willing to give the largest sums of all—Sheldon Adelson, who in 2012 spent at least $100 million—is firmly in the GOP camp.

But Obama won anyway, in part because he raised so much in increments of less than $200. And in part because he successfully painted Mitt Romney as a rich guy, surrounded by other rich guys, who couldn’t understand the struggles of ordinary Americans. Romney’s private-equity background, and his 47 percent comment, made himself a particular easy target. But the GOP’s country-club reputation remains its single biggest political liability. A February 2013 Pew Research poll, for instance, found that while Americans were six points more likely to say that Republicans have “strong principles” than Democrats, they were 16 points more likely to call the GOP “out of touch with the American people.” A CNN poll this February found that while Americans were six points more likely to say Democratic policies favored the middle class than the rich, they said Republican policies favored the rich over the middle class by a whopping 46 points.
