    Back in 2008, an old, white, southern relative of mine exclaimed "I never thought I'd ever vote for a n*****, but I just did!"

    Institutionalized racism dies hard, and the fact that a certain political party got so much traction out of practicing racism this election year is proof positive that electing our nation's first black President hasn't magically changed the hearts or minds of a lot of people.

    You see, you are thinking that the Republican Party is like conservative European Christian Democratic Parties, who actually do feel a moral responsibility towards the weaker members of society. The religious backbone of the GOP is unfortunately Evangelicals, who do not care about said weaker folk.

    I could vote for a European conservative party. The closest thing to a conservative party in the US is the Democratic Party, which is sad to say.

    Well I think in future it would be well worth reading parties' manifestos and taking political tests to see where your beliefs actually lie.
    http://politicaltest.net is a decent(ish) one.

    Getting back to the original premise of this thread .. the scariest thing about voting for me was the fact that I did not have to show ID ... i just gave them a name and address - info I could easily have gotten from the phone book. Of course I gave them MY NAME and ADDRESS, but I could very easily have voted repeatedly using my neighbours' names (early voting all over the state at multiple locations). I live in North Carolina.

    Yeah some form of ID should be necessary really. Estonia have a good system with a national ID card which works for most things.

    Because the entire premise of "you must have ID to vote" is based on a criminal enterprise that tried to throw elections, I reject it entirely.

    When I lived in Illinois, I was required to sign my name, and my signature was checked against the registered copy in the books. That's precisely what banks have done when I withdrew money or used my safe deposit box. IMHO it is enough. Since the documented cases of abuse of the signature ID are nearly nil, the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" rule holds true here.

    The so-called Patriot law makes it a crime to not show a photo ID whenever a law enforcement officer demands. Big Brotherism aside, this isn't something that many poor and/or elderly US citizens simply cannot do. There has been a big push back from We, the People over the (GOP-led) push for a national ID card. The so-called Real ID law is intrusive enough. Also, I can't help but notice how GOP candidates claim to be the champions of small government and personal liberties during elections, but turn into big and oppressive government Big Brothers when they make it to public office.

    Well like one is supposed to bring an ID to vote in many places. I don't see the problem unless it is part of a wider conspiracy to rig the vote.

    What happens when whites become the minority? Will I be sued for hiring just white people? I am all for helping minorities. I might get applause for stating that I will ONLY hire minorities. What happens when they be us?

    People like Al Sharpton lost traction when a black man became the most powerful man on the planet. What will happen when a black woman

    This is why a photo ID should be manditory in evety state.

    Voter ID laws routinely get shut down by Democrats claiming that requiring ID discriminates against minorities/elderly and denies them the right to vote.

    Some are on the books anyway, but face legal challenges.

    Since that's the case, yes it is a problem. Any criminal conspiracy is a problem. No political party operative is above the law.

    The US is not the EU. There are no immigration checkpoints or frontiers between US states. Because the US states are not sovereign states, the need for official ID is less in the US than it is in other countries.

    As I said before, making certain hard-to-get photo ID cards mandatory for voting as part of a greater criminal conspiracy by the Republican Party in the US does in fact make them illegitimate.

    Here in Wisconsin where I live, part of the plan was to shut down DMV offices (the only places where voter ID cards can be obtained) in areas that were likely to vote against the Republican Party. Thankfully the person in charge of the Wisconsin DMV refused to participate in the plot, and the courts knocked down the illegal voter ID laws. Our Republican Governor is under criminal investigation.

    This is the worst partisan criminal scandal since Watergate.

    Neither was mine since I moved to Wisconsin. That's beside the point.

    My point was that other forms of voter verification do exist. It's a moot point because there is no problem with too many people showing up to vote. Quite the opposite, in fact. Those who push so-called "solutions" for problems that don't exist are themselves up to no good.
