What I find sad about this argument is it really has nothing to do with what is in the best interests of our country. Both parties are only concerned with winning elections. The Republicans think if everyone has to have picture ID's it will not only impact voter fraud but take away a lot of votes the Democrats get from the poor people. The Democrats know needing picture ID's could lose a lot of legitimate votes from the poor so they could care less about stopping any voter fraud. Myself I'm rather split on the issue. On the one hand I see nothing wrong with a person doing a little work to get an ID to vote as long as there are no fees involved. On the other hand there are a lot of poor or elderly or disabled people who don't have any means of transportation or who it may be a lot more hardship to get an ID. I hate to think about adding another government program but I think in order to be fair & have voter ID's the gov. needs to have some sort of program in place to help people get ID's. Voting is not just a privlege in this country, it is a right. I hate think people are voting fraudulently but I also hate to think some legitimate people may not exercise that right because of a voter ID law. You can argue that if they don't want to do whatever is needed to get their ID's then they don't deserve to vote. I tend to buy that argument somewhat myself. I just find it hard to believe that every Democrat is against picture ID's & every Republican is for them. Don't any of them have a mind of their own or are they all drones that believe whatever their party tells them.Gary

So instead of hearing about the dead voters, the news headlines would read something like this....Cases of voter fraud linked to fake IDs found in almost all states, what's next?
Then politicians would have to waste MORE time thinking up the next law that is going to hopefully stop voters fraud. Because ya know...even one bad vote can throw an election.

I would propose a law that only those with college degrees and owning a business with 500 or more employees be allowed to vote. It is people like this that are the ones in our country with the drive, determination and book smarts to get things done. Surely those folks would be best suited to make decisions regarding all of us.Let go of my cracker jacks, If you dont Im going to have to beat you....... now then hand my captain crunch back over to me this instant.....or else !!!

We have established that voter fraud is able to be commited.
We have established that voter fraud has occured in the recent past due to not having proof of the identity of everyone who is voting.
We have established that just because you are a minority does not mean you are some sort of vagrant.
We have established that students and the elderly already have viable forms of ID.
We have established that illegal immigrants have been emboldened by the current administration.
We have established that without requiring some sort of ID to vote that illegal aliens can vote for politicians who will help them.
We have established that only Democrats want the door to voter fraud left open.
There is no argument. Either you support taking simple, non costly measures to help prevent voter fraud or you support voter fraud.
Since only those who support the Democrats want the door for voter fraud left wide open, it is clear that Democrats intend for voter fraud to add votes for Democrats in the election.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV

Sure, people can fake ID's. But at least it would be a lot more difficult for voter fraud to be committed. Isn't crime prevention really all about making the effort to commit the crime more of a pain than the benefits of commiting the crime? That is what requiring ID does; makes it not worth the while to commit the crime of voter fraud.Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV
