[QUOTE=Warfish;4501300]Some on the left would say you're taking away the inherant human right to vote of minorities and women, who they say are the targeted victims of all "voter ID" requirement ideas.

Some on the left would say you're taking away the inherant human right to not be hassled because of how you look or what accent you have, specificly minorities and women, they say are the targeted victims of all "immigrantion enforcement" requirement ideas.
I wouldn't call them morons. They simply see things very, very differently than you and I, and value things very very differently than you and I.
For us, say, voter ID is iportant, and if one person is wrongly denied teh right to stop 100 from illegally voting, we're ok with that. For them, even one person being denied their right to vote, even if they could have overcome the burden of getting an ID, it's too much to allow such laws to exist, regardless of how many illegal votes may be cast (they believe it to be zero) by not having the law.[/QUOTE]
I'm aware of all of their responses to common sense solutions.
And they still sound moronic to me. Not just different, but lacking in fundamental ability to weigh logic and the consequences of one's actions. Especially when the best counter to those proposals that they can come up with is "you believe that because you're racist". It's downright lazy and unintelligent. I'm willing to listen if we are going to weigh pros and cons. But when best you can do is chime in with a desperate party strategy, you're a moron by definition.
