I'm still trying to understand how GW Bush was elected for a second term.

he received the most electorial votes.

I support automatic voting registration for everyone of voting age. We can have voting ID cards, free sent to everyone, and a voting database to make sure everyone votes only once during an election cycle. That's about it.

There's no reason why we can't have waivers for college students.

There's no point in passing a law that requires a bunch of waivers to make it work.

I'd rather restrict government than restrict those who vote. We already have far too much power in the hands of a few.

And voting is just a mind game to let the slaves think they have some say on the plantation.

Look at all the liberals trying to justify why there should be no restrictions, so their criminal and "undocumented immigrant" voter base can still vote, just like every other thread that dares to suggest that people should actually need to prove they are citizens before casting a vote.

gunlover it's like you turned over a rock and got the cockroaches scurrying around.
