[QUOTE=JetPotato;4396368]Rarely? So the occasional election here and there is fine?
I find this so absurd.
Let me ask you all... what possible motivation would one have for "making up" the witness of voter fraud? :rolleyes:
Excuse me if that makes me a little upset. Being called a liar is one thing. Being called a liar on something that I've seen and upsets me so much to my core takes it to another level.[/QUOTE]
That was a joke but personally I believe our voter system is innacurate, loaded with fraud and essentially outdated. I'm starting to believe that voting is a complete waste of time. The chances of your vote actually being counted and counted accurately is so small that it's hardly worth the effort.
If people don't have to show residency or ID why should I waste my time voting at all? The right to vote doesn't mean people shouldn't have to show that they are registered residents and show who they are with some proof and today the proof that is required everywhere is a picture ID.
Our entire system is built on one person one vote and verifying who you are when casting that vote isn't an infringement on anyone's rights. Not verifying who you are is an assault on the entire voting concept. You can't function in this society without a picture ID of some kind. It's not unreasonable for people to show it when they vote.
