Every Republican candidate should be asking that question.

You can't get a library card without showing ID. Think of how many times you've been asked for identification not related to driving to prove you are who you say you are. I can't cash my own check at my own bank without showing them ID which they write on the check.

And come on, students with no ID?
Because Clinton did NOT get 50% of the popular vote in either Prez election he won by electoral vote. The need those students voting twice, especially the ones crossing state lines for the purpose. ID is of no use for that.

I would agree with your two examples. Seems someone should know when Election Day is though.
Those who know anything about our Constitution have to know that the election of federal officials is held on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November of even numbered years. I don't see anything so terribly hard to understand there.

If any group managed to convince a whole neighborhood that the election was to be held at a later date than what the Constitution calls for found a whole pile of people who weren't well enough educated to be voting, anyway.

its also funny that republicans who want to be more off the grid, and are against intrusion and having to produce documents, you know, the rugged individualism, doesn't conform to what the general public has to, would be in favor of having to produce an ID.

seems to go against the mentality many on the right have of less government, yet we have to have a specific form of government ID and only that form of government ID works.
Now you have told me why people who drive in Kansas need to carry their driver's license when driving. When you are stopped, have an accident or anything like these you best have that little thing with you. Maybe the cities of Kansas don't use that law but I have never been stopped in one of them that I wasn't asked for license and registration before they said anything else.

Yep, in Kansas everybody who drives either has a picture ID or is taking a chance of a hefty fine and other things.

I know. Can you imagine the level of stupidity required to believe that. You could convince them Christmas comes twice and thus make them shop twice as much.

None the less, it is a sleazy move.

Using your last few words there I see that keeping dead peoples' names on the books allows somebody to vote with their names. I am sure you understand what I said but won't admit it.

You've got an issue with making voter registration, complete with ID, hassle-free and free? Do you also have an issue with expecting voting machines that aren't quite black boxes with absolutely no accountability to trace back to?

Yesterday in a rerun of the Glenn Beck show from last spring a group of about 50 college students, all conservative or libertarian, told some real horror stories about how they were treated on their campuses. One of them, a political columnist on the Rutgers U. campus even told about getting death threats for writing against the left. All of them admitted that they allowed themselves to be mistreated in classes by both professors and students. The students may have softened since the 2008 debacle but the profs are old progressives and they won't be changing very soon. That bunch will continue to try to organize their students to do those things they were accused of in that election.

That's why you have a problem with IDs. You want to assist them with one of the greatest examples of voter fraud in history.

If the GOP tried such a feat, you would be rioting. And you would be justified.
