That must be a pretty widely held opinion on the right, otherwise the Republicans wouldn't be making such an effort to disenfranchise voters who might not agree with them.


Like insisting a person have a photo ID and is who he/she claims to be. How ludicrous can a party be?

Amd just how are they doing that?? By asking that everybody that vots show a photo ID???

TR beat me to it.

But one thing. It shows just how cheap the liberals take votes and voters. They don't ever care who votes as long as they vote liberal.

The flaws:

How much property?
Real - land - property only, or does owning a unit in a NTY highrise count?

The ACLU argument is that is a "poll tax", in that it requires you to "pay" to be able to vote.


That's why I think it should be based on income tax instead of property.

If you don't pay income tax or if you receive welfare or food stamps, you don't vote until you return to being a productive member of society.

Those living off the labors of others should not have a voice is deciding how much of other people's labor they are entitled too.

As for the ACLU, I don't give a rat's *** \:D

Getting back to the original post, if someone doesn't take the time to vote, don't complain. That's pretty simple. All of this other stuff mentioned will never come in to play, except the massive oppression (bs) of expecting someone to provide an ID. If the democrats can pound their chests about how many people they pick up and take home for their vote, they are surely smart enough to figure out how to get these same people to a government office for an ID. Cheating the system is so...cheezy.

Do you mean like Democrats suing in Ohio to block the military vote?

The IRONY can be summed up like this:
To vote, you must first disclose some form of photo ID to convey that you are who you say you are; a registered voter, a US citizen. Yet, to be president of the US, you can seal your records and not have to provide any proof of US citizenship, tax compliance, or birth certificate.

Talk about MESSED UP !!!

The original post makes a good chain email but someone's right to complain (freedom of speech) is not linked to any other right or requirement. What's next if you vote for the winning candidate then you lose the right to complain about anything they do as well?

Heck ... we OWN the property and the house it is on ... sort of. No mortgage payments -- free and clear.

But I guaran-*'n-tee you that if we don't pay our property TAXES, it won't be ours any more!!

As for voter ID ... why is it the the left can BUS people en mass to the polls on election day ... and even provide BRIBES like free beer and cigarettes ... but they claim that they (for some odd reason) can't BUS a SUBSET of those SAME PEOPLE to the DMV for a valid ID??

It makes ya wonder what the REAL issue is ... doesn't it??
