"Obama Admits to Democrat Voter Fraud, a Racist Party of Organized Crime"
http://youtu.be/1iaN8fCrPfU

Here ya' go again. The racists in the Democrat Party say, "US BLACKS ARE TOO STUPID TO GET A PHOTO ID before VOTING." That's another reason I no longer vote Democrat. The thing that scares the clueless liberals most are Actual facts and evidence. Thinking people just don't vote Democrat. That's why the only way they can win elections is through illegal tax payer funded slush funds, voter fraud gimmicks, no photo ID's at voting centers, no proof of citizenship required for voting, fraudulent ballots, duplicate signatures, and through bogus Ballots. You will even notice that most democrats have no thoughtful response to the realities of their history of Racism and Organized Crime ring in America.

A Democrat strategist said, "We Democrats know that once fraudulent voters (Fake Voters) are added to the Voter role ANYONE can vote in that person's name just as long as they know the address of the name associated with it. Once we send out our unions to vote in the place of these fake people voters, the stupid judges (like the ones in PA) and politicians that we have paid off with tax payer dollars and union dues will turn a blind eye to support our efforts."

of course young minorities are not allowed to drive or buy a car so they are never can obtain a drivers license. what a slam, young minorities have the same drive to get jobs, secure the freedom of their own transportation and not rely on mom n dad to get them around, notwithstanding youngsters pride in buying their own vehicle. buncha pols must have never been 18-19 I guess.

Democrats celebrate jobs number, as another 342,000 the leave workforce!!!
http://www.caintv.com/Demscelebratejobsnumber...

Not only are Democrats waging voting scams all over America, they are waging unemployment number scams. Only a socialist Democrat would celebrate when hundreds of thousands leave the workforce because they are frustrated by not finding any jobs, because More people will be dependent of the government, less independent, and it creates the statistical illusion that more people are getting employed that really are not.

This is a Failed President and Failed Presidency. Anyone who still would vote for Obama is voting the Destruction of their entire nation.

IF we ever wanted and needed a "FAIR" election,
NOW is the TIME.....The only way I know to tell
you, "Got Photo ID, VOTE, if not, YOU Can't.
Such a small thing to make our voteing rights
really mean something...If we Can't do what is legal, WHAT IS THE USE OF HAVING THE RIGHT TO VOTE?
Once, it was a privledge and a right, until it
became nothing but a fraud and means only
who can cheat and lie the most...We surly have
taken away what other countries praised us for.

Our civilization depends on it, Right?
Does anybody CARE anymore?????Ask yourself when
you vote....Its your life and country...Up to you!! NO ONE MAN is worth throwing my country
away.

Not requiring a photo ID to vote will disenfranchise the entire country and the American way of life.

The founding fathers are spinning in the graves. What the liberals are trying to do to this nation is DISGUSTING.

So then why wait this close to an election to start this now ? why not give everybody enough time at least 2 to 3 months in advance, and last but not least then turn around and try to limit the time for people to vote. i don't know about you but as far as I'm concerned it just does not seem right to start this so close to voting time.

The voter ID law in PA was passed in March

"Supporters argue that the law signed in March by Republican Gov. Tom Corbett will prevent voter fraud and is upheld by the Constitution."

It has absolutely nothing to do with liberals.

There's a negro in the white house and he's President. If the founding fathers knew this they'd be spinning in their graves. That's what's this is all about. Black people and our voting power. Now America's 4th Reich wants to employ a 21st Century version of Jim Crowe. There was never this concern before, but now for some reason they have to change it all over alleged voter fraud.

To me everybody on this thread is full of shit!!1 and i doubt very highly if anyone here is black as proclaimed, there is just simply no way you can justify this immediate call to whine about demanding to implement this voter id law so close to voting time' and then call to action to limit the time for people to vote, when you very well know that this is in direct violation of federal voting laws.

Which laws would those be? I'm not aware of any law that says that you cannot be required to prove that you are entitled to vote.

Yeahhhh! Ahhh perhaps if he pushed to eliminate the patriot act and the TSA, and Homeland Security, and all of the laws enacted to circumvent our rights and all of the potential laws enacted to turn us all into slaves I would maybe believe you. You are right. the founding fathers ares spinning in their graves. But for other reasons. And when finished. the laws will be tougher on you then all others. Obama the smiling Uncle Adolph! Bwhaaaa! The camps are coming. Enjoy the years you have left.
