    ACORN couldn't be this effective at messing up an election. I think we were looking the wrong way.

    I put Schumer on about the same level as that bozo democrat clown who is trying to steal the Senate seat in Minnesota. Wonder how many fraudulent voters ACORN will register when they get the $5 billion with a B from the stimulus package.

    Not sure why you're so tough on the Democrat when the republican basically asked the judges in his closing argument to forget the law and use common sense. Now that should be real effective in a court of law. Talk about trying to steal an election? Would you go to court and use forget the law as your defense? That's like asking the Church to not worry about what the Bible says or asking your doctor to forget what he learned in medical school.

    No photo ID is a legitimate reason for not allowing one to vote. So much for a reliable study.

    Let's all keep in mind that Schumer is not in favor of voter ID.

    That should tell us all quite clearly his stance with regard to honesty in the voting process.

    No, it is not. Photo ID is not required to vote. They can ask all they want but it is not required. That is why so many are trying to push legislation requiring voter ID. It goes back to the 24th amendment regarding poll tax. Part of the poll tax was demonstrating you had a financial connection to a community before you were allowed to vote. Photo id's acre considered "a tie" since one has to pay for them. If the government would give out free id's it may meet the criteria but as long as they charge it can't be required. That would be saying you can't exercise your right o vote unless you can afford an ID. That is unconstitutional.

    Any welfare recipient can get a free photo ID. This is where I part company with my party. I believe you should be able to prove who you are.

    No,it is a way to allow those who do not qualify to vote. It is legitimate. Cost of an ID does not equal tax.

    Wow.. that had to hurt! :smilewinkgrin:

    Just jokin brother.. I am not sure which way to go with voter ID.

    But I would guess, since I am a strict conservative.. and value the constitution.. that since the provision for an ID is not in the constitution.. I would have to side against it.

    Requiring it.. would, and is not constitutional..
    NOW...


    Requiring PROOF of residence.. is.
    And an ID is proof.. But so are other things..

    Like proof from the DHHR office.
    Or Property tax receipt...
    Or other things...

    I fall on the side that as long as proof is given.. let them vote.

    No matter how you feel about the requirement, photo id is currently not needed so the study is not invalidated.

    That is why we register to vote, the commission then validates the registration. Even in places where you can register and vote same day, your vote is held for 30 days while the validity of your registration is validated.

    IOW, we pay people to validate all registrations and Mickey Mouse never validates so is never able to vote.

    In New York State, if you don't register in person, you MUST show photo ID the FIRST time you vote - after that you are fine - as long as your signatures match!

    1. I believe photo ID and a valid registration card should be required for anyone to vote.

    2. I believe voting by mail or internet should be eliminated in general. The only people who should be allowed to vote by mail are those physically unable to get to the voting place.

    3. I believe that registration of voters anywhere except a local court house should be eliminated.

    4. I believe that only those who can read, write, and speak English [a requirement for citizenship] should be qualified to register to vote.

    If some other limitations come to mind I will post them.

    Not as many fraudulent voters as Bush did to steal the 2000 and 2004 elections.

    This is exactly why the south has to be supervised. Since when is reading and writing a requirement for citizenship? And I don't think we have a national language.
