    The really bogus thing is the obstructionist tea party, I hope every one of those clowns gets voted out so maybe we can get something done in congress

    nah...only when the two party system is knocked down a notch or two, will real progress be made. I commend the Tea Party movement for being peaceful and taking full advantage of the LAW in order to promote their opinions and views...

    The opposite is true with the Occupy movement...but I don't see any disdain for them in your posts.

    Again, that isn't true. Some sources are untrustworthy not only in bias, but in fact. If you find that a lot of your cites are dismissed, the problem is probably your cites.

    That particular site is disreputable. Frantic hand-waving doesn't change that.

    I fail to see how making sure every voter is legitimate is disinfranchising. We keep hearing that, and yet it's just an excuse. Numerous solutions have been suggested to make it easy for low income and disabled to get the proper ID. It just isn't an issue.

    OK, how many of these proposed solutions have been implemented?

    Your right I approve as long as they stay peaceful, they do have some good points.

    The elderly and the poor have the greatest problems obtaining the ID required by the new laws. Minorities are disproportionately poor.

    Yeah.

    I went to work this morning. I don't see what the big deal is with unemployment.

    The elderly have trouble getting an ID? That is simply a lie. The elderly are very good at having receipts from 1962 on a water heater...old folks cross their "T"s and do their "i"s better than any other group of folks.

    As for the "poor", what if we went door to door, took their picture and sent their IDs with their next "my check"? Would that be fair enough to you? The poor have no problem getting an ID...the self entitled lazy might have to get off the couch...are might actually do something legally without trying to beat the system...in other words, a new experience.

    I love how "poor" is automatically equated with "self-entitled lazy".

    Keep on showing that good ole Christian love!

    That may be, but as the elderly get elderlier, they often have problems with mobility. Getting to the state id office may present problems for those who are housebound, in wheelchairs and without their own transportation.

    How about just a place they can easily access? What if they could obtain the ids the same place that they would go to vote?

    You don't much like poor people, I take it from that awful tirade.

    Actually, many poor people do have problems getting id. It may cost quite a bit of money to take a day off of work and to get to a place 250 miles from where they live (that was found to be the distance in some rural areas in Texas).
