As near as I can tell, the only reason why the right want stricter voter I.D laws is because the left is opposed to it and vice versa. It has nothing to do with vote integrity or easier access to the polls, it's all just partisan one-upsmanship from both sides

You're kidding, right?

You really don't know how many elections have been stolen in the last few years due to ineligible voters voting at the direct instigation of the left wing?

You really don't know about ACORN's voter fraud? About the Chicago democrat machine? About ALL the historical democrat vote-stealing machines?

You really need to wake up. Your democracy is being stolen from you through your deliberate carelessness.

I hear ya but we're supposed to believe this rhetoric from the same guys who have been running the Romney/Paul delegate selection process? We're supposed to believe that those guys want the rule of law to be followed? There is always fraud in the elections and it should be minimized but I shouldn't have to carry a government issued ID to exercise my right to vote. The Republicans don't have the moral high ground anymore, this issue is a no-go. They need to drop it.

Every election fraud case, that is exposed, gets me really angry, as each negates a legitimate vote. Has nothing to do with who wins or loses, but fraud goes against all this Country is supposed to be about.
Nobody questions driver's licenses and all sorts of ID's and States are really making it easy to get a voter ID cards. The opposition comes, chiefly, from people full of guile.

Maybe we should question these ID's more than we do, I mean, when is it going to stop? We can always come up with good reasons to give freedom or privacy but that doesn't mean we should do it. It is never worth it. When we give our governing body more regulatory rights over our freedom, we lose. And for what? This battle is not worth the cost, there have to be other ways to deal with election fraud. The first thing that should be done is to lead by example.

You're not very near the truth.

Conservatives care about the integrity of elections because we actually believe that American Dream stuff.
Photo voter ID laws, according to Attorney General Eric Holder, are a "poll tax." "Many of those without IDs," Holder recently told the NAACP, "would have to travel great distances to get them -- and some would struggle to pay for the documents they might need to obtain them."

Photo voter ID opponent Keesha Gaskins, senior counsel in the Brennan Center's Democracy Program, writes: "While these laws are allegedly passed to secure elections, they impact communities of color in ways only reflected in our Jim Crow past. Looking at voter ID laws alone, we know that although 11 percent of Americans...
