Freepers see that as a good thing, of course, as the wrong people keep voting.
Still, they try to keep up appearances with increasingly outlandish explanations of how ID requirements don't really impost a burden at all:
YouGoTexasGirl knows the poor just don't want to vote:
probably are fretting that they’ll have to skip a pedicure to get an id... We live in a pathetic country right now. I bet if it was for some government benefit they’d rush to get the id......nomad agrees - the poor only care about welfare!
But I bet they sure as hell could find their way to a welfare office!reg45 points out the poor and elderly are mostly drunks:
The same ID that they use to buy that bottle of cheap gin.Slump Tester uses sarcasm to endorse voter disenfranchisement:
Golly, I hope this doesn’t make them disfranchised.jazusamo expects the source is probably lying for Obama's benefit:
I'd be interested to know if Eric Holder is connected in any way to the Brennan Center for Justice.Drango blames a different boogeyman:
Soros front group....Mears hates the word Justice, for some reason:
Just clicked on your posted link and IMMEDIATELY clicked off when I saw the word “justice”.WashingtonSource prefers to focus on imaginary voter fraud:
That one word tells me all I need to know.
What a sob story. I’m going to cry myself to sleep. Then sleep soundly knowing that illegal aliens, felons, dead people and union thugs will not be stealing 500,000 votes they would have otherwise stolen.RetiredTexasVet has a story that's really just a mishmash of voter-suppression propaganda over the past decade:
When the State Attorney General argued the Voter ID case in Federal Court, he showed the statistics provided by Eric the Corrupt were fictitious and should have caused Eric to be held in contempt of court. The State Attorney General had students from UT actually call the people submitted on the list by Eric that were supposed to have not photo ID. They found less than 10% of the people claimed they did not have photo Id. Included on Eric’s list of people not having photo Id were G W Bush, Mickey Mouse, etc. The list was fraudulent from the get go.BobL:
What the Dems REALLY FEAR here is that once these people show up at DMV, they won’t have a paper-trail to prove who they are...and if that’s the case, they’re essentially non-citizens (i.e., non-players), even if they are here legally.Yes! Democrats worry that citizens who should vote will be unable to due to these stringent laws:
bobo1 complains how much you have to pay for ID, but somehow doesn't make the connection to poll taxes:
You just go down and get one. Of course, in Illinois you pay up the butt for one, because the fascists are in charge (located in Chicago, mostly). If you are too stupid to be able to acquire a picture ID, You are either not an American citizen, or you are too stupid to be allowed to vote.wbill knows only losers allow their vote to get suppressed anyhow:
I'd guess that my grandmother doesn't have an ID. I don't know that for sure, but it's a good bet. She hasn't driven for years, Grandpa (and now, Dad) handles all of her finances, and so on.unique1's conspiracy theory requires national ID:
However, if my state requires one to vote, you just TRY and stop her from getting one! She'll be first in line at the DMV (or where-ever).
This "hardship" argument is such bunk. Irritates me to no end.
OK, so how in hell are these people going to be tracked by ObamaCare?
