To Peter906: Your statement "much of the contemporary Republican party writes off, scorns, demeans, and tries to discriminate against (voter ID laws) those who need compassion. " is a lie. It is a deliberate slander and obviously intended to automatically defame anyone who identifies as either Republican or conservative. Further, your statement about Republicans "if they are without compassion are not going to voluntarily give charity.
