Voter ID could stop nearly 1 in 6 Pa. Latinos from voting

There are 318 comments on the www.philly.com story from Sep 25, 2012, titled Voter ID could stop nearly 1 in 6 Pa. Latinos from voting. In it, www.philly.com reports that:

AS MANY AS 52,000 of Pennsylvania's 323,000 eligible Latino voters could be stopped from voting on Election Day if the state's new voter-ID law isn't blocked, a Washington-based civil-rights organization said Monday.

The Advancement Project, which released a report Monday on the potential disenfranchisement of Latino voters nationwide, is one of several groups challenging the voter-ID law in state court.

If those making over 388,000 plus are paying 35%, then they ARE ALREADY paying a higher share of their income in taxes, thus paying their fair share. SO, all along the gripe of the libtards has been that the wealthy don't pay their fair share, DUHHH! Looks like a $3,500.00 tax hike according to the news, thanks to Odumbo. Hopefully Romney will win the election and you can blame that tax hike on him.
But as we've seen with Romney, those making over $388k from investment income or are able to stash their earned income in the Caymen Islands actually end up pay significantly LESS in taxes; more like 15%

THAT is what needs to change.

If they had ID, like a social security card,(which I was never asked to produce any ID in the past), they could vote, so what is the big deal in getting a state ID to prove you are indeed a resident of that state and of this country? Voting is one of our greatest contributions to this country, so getting an ID is not a big deal. If these folks can GET to the poles, they can get to a state center to get an ID. I can assure you they get to Walmart for their supplies, or a drug store for their meds.
Because not all people have the certified birth certificate required to issue one of these state-approved IDs. And while the ID may be free, getting the supporting documentation isn't.

The main reason I oppose voter ID laws is the ONLY INTENT is to make it more difficult for those poor & minority voters who typically vote for the Dems.

Either way, the judge has blocked the law from taking effect!!!!

Those paying tax on investment income have done so with earnings they have already paid taxes on. The 15% on the gains is a second dip. Are you suggesting we increase the rate on capital gains? What do you think that would do to our economy? I see another liberal economic illiterate here.

Yet those same 1 out of 6 Latinos in Penn. have ID to buy their bottle of patrone on Friday night.

Donkey lovers don't want common sense rules like voters to be ID'd for one reason and one reason only, to cheat.

If people are so inept as to require a photo I.D. to vote, they probably are too dumb to vote in the first place. Mitt & Paul--for us in Nov.

Yes, capital gains should be taxed just like regular income.

Btw, we'll never know what Romney actually paid the first time around when he supposed earned that income, because he refuses to release his taxes which might show what rate he paid.

Could that be because he DIDN'T pay any earned income taxes? Did he shield all that higher taxable income in the Caymen Islands or in Zurich?

I guess we'll never know........

If they "earned" it, then they should pay the earned income tax rate on it.

Btw, I've made enough in capital gains to be retired since I was 38 y/o. And I'd have NO problem paying taxes on that money the same as the earned income rate.

Why are you guys fighting over a bull shit called representative democracy? Lobbyists with ID's buy lots of politicians nullifying millions of your votes!
.
And then you got people, you don't vot in, that can impoverish you or send you to war and die or curtail your personal freedoms based on the abstract terrorism.
.
So why are you picking a fight with a meaningless drivers ID for illegal? How is that affecting the larger social-political-economical landscape? Northo-Grumman has more political power than some states as a whole!!!!

Preventing minorities from voting in this election is the INTENT of these voter ID laws.
Republicans know the ONLY chance Romney has to win Pennsylvania is if they can keep the 500,000 people with photo ID from voting.
The head of the GOP in Pennsylvania is ON TAPE admitting that very fact.
Nuff said.

The chicken-littles of the world have been saying the same thing about every election since the very first one in 1788 when Washington was elected with all 38,818 votes cast and 100% of the electoral votes.
