Democrats are racist, obviously, because they are so concerned with Press ID rules.
That doesn't prove Dems are racist.
It just shows they are being very careful who they issue press passes to.
Maybe they have a quota of right-wing blogger types they'll allow in and the rest of the passes go to the "lamestream" media representatives!
Jaxson, this is just BS, how can you compare the constitutional right to vote with a ticket to the school dance?
You're right. It makes perfect sense that it is more difficult to be issued a press pass to a political event than to actually vote for the most influential positions in the country.
Well, I guess if you don't mind half of the government possibly being attacked by terrorists. Public events which include the President and others have high security... as I'm sure the Republican one did have also.
It is a specious argument ...
I'm not against the security. I'm for it, as I'm for voter ID.
I can play your game too.
Well, I guess if you don't mind the possibility that a single fraudulent vote could change the outcome of who becomes the POTUS...
It has been proven again and again and again that voter fraud is negligible. Someone who has been voting for 40 years is suddenly told they can't vote without a photo ID, how is that fair in any way?
Negligible =/= nonexistant. Theoretically, a single fraudulent vote could change the outcome, and sour the entire election.
I never said I'm for telling someone who has been voting for 40 years that they suddenly can't vote. I'm for, if ID laws are implemented, giving 4 years of notice and providing ID to any citizen who needs one.
If someone doesn't bother to get one, then it's their fault.
Its fair because it would apply to everyone
As I said before when you or someone else brought it up a few months ago. Security demanding photo ID at an event is completely different than denying people the right to vote.
Only citizens have the right to vote. Verifying citizenship, as it is a requirement to vote, is not an unreasonable infringement on rights.
But you don't need photo ID to do that... It's been fine for 250 years, why the change now?
Because now we have a President who wants noncitizens to vote for him. We have a President who cares nothing about our constitution!

Should women have the right to vote?Am working on my first political hub and gathering information. I would like to hear both sides of the opinionated coin about whether or not women should have the right to vote or if only men should vote and speak for their house. This ties a bit into religion...

Why were women given the right to vote?Why did men find it necessary to exclude women from politics in the first place? Was it social or religious ideology?
