Voter ID Requirments = Poll Tax?

I don’t hardly think so.

Someone seems to have this idea that those without ID are more likely to vote democrat and so this is a ploy by republicans to win elections. It might be true for all I know. I do know something else though, that to protect the integrity of our elections, people should have to prove they are who they say they are.

The states that have recently instituted this requirement are giving away state ID’s for free as well. I’m extremely confused as to why the race card is being played on this one. You need ID to work, to cash a check, to drive a car, to get into the movies, why the hell shouldn’t you need it to vote? Prior to these requirements anyone could walk up to a polling place, claim to be someone else and go in and vote on their behalf. They could even move on to another polling place and pull the same stunt.

So shut your mouth Jesse Jackson, you race baiting hate monger.

    Just for laughs, couldn’t both sides of this issue admit this is really about making sure voters who support them or oppose them are more or less likely to vote?

    I doubt there are many people who would vote who don’t have an ID, and individual votes carry such little weight I doubt anyone is going to fraudulently vote. Both are totally unlikely scenarios.

    Oh don’t know. It wouldn’t take very many people or an organizational genius to come up with an extra 500 votes.
