I think one would be hard pressed to find a conservative that wants to deny ONE vote to a person legally entitled to do so. The fact that there is a solid cadre of legal voters who continually get it wrong is just something we have to deal with. I do agree that we are targeting traditionally Democrat contsituency groups. Those groups are: The dead. Illegal aliens. Those who vote multiple times. Felons.
Joe, I think you are onto something. Maybe we need to start illegal voting; then the libs would care about it.
Sorry for the typos...
The other day, I saw part of Rith Bader Ginsberg's dissent on the recent voter ID challenge. She put into her official dissent that voter ID laws were "intentionally discriminatory". Never in my life have I felt like I wanted to slap a supreme court justice! Imagine the howls if a conservative justice put in his ruling that the dissenting justices and politicians were intentionally favoring unqualified voters. They are, but without any shred of evidience I don't think it would be appropriate to include an unfounded assertion in a ruling. The way I see it, every illegal vote disenfranchises a legitimate voter. If an election is turned by illegitimate voters, as happened in Kansas City a few years back, a whole lot more have been disenfranchised. Opponents to voter ID claim fraud is "rare", but with virtually no mechanisim to identify legitimate voters, we really don't know how widespread it is, do we?
Well played, Tx.

I wish people, especially the LIV, would look at "Big Education" with the same critical eye that they do "Big Pharma" or "Big Oil". A little Monsanto-esque scrutiny might be very informative for them.
Wow. If these democrat early voters don't show up to vote again on election day like they are supposed to, this could be a real disaster for them.

I think "fail to enact" might be closer to the truth, However, it almost seems that any law ever imagined never really goes away- it may bet tweaked a bit, but gone- never.
Might it also be said that the influx of illegal aliens has stretched the public health infrastructure to the limit? Just sayin'...
I say again, if anyone wishes to "move on", lets have the president sit down before the congressional comittee and answer these questions: 1 There were scant military assets in the country. Was a "stand down" order given and by whom. Why were they not ordered to give assistance? 2. Help was 1 hr away by fighter jets; other forms of aid were 3 hours away by transport aircraft. Why were they not sent? If there were diplomatic or strategic reasons they were not, state them. 3. Why were requests for additional security not acted upon? If sequester cuts were in play, satisfy the American people that ther was no discretionary item in the state department or military budget that couldn't have been cancelled or postponed to insure the safety of our people. Make your case, in an honest fashion (look it up in the dictionary), and let the people of this country judge for themselves. They may judge your actions unfairly--tough; it's what you signed on for. Preferably, do it before the election- this is info the people need before they make their choice.
