How in the **** can anyone...ANYONE...argue against extra convienience to vote for the office of president? People work, they have jobs, families, responsibilities, and in some cases physical conditions, ALL of which may keep some people from waiting in line for hours at a time. We're supposed to be the one remaining superpower on this planet but we can't have early voting in every state? We can't agree that it is in the best interest of our democracy to make it as easy as possible for eligible voters to cast their vote? Jesus Christ, how is this even an issue???
If you actually argue against early voting for everybody, then quite frankly you're either a traitor to this country or hopelessly ignorant. This is not a Dem or Repub issue, this is a VOTING issue. I want every eligible voter to vote, and if the GOP wins, then so be it. At least everyone's voice was heard.
For ****'s sake, can we not politicize every ****ing thing?
I am against early voting.
I am for a National Holiday on Election Day.
And I am for 100% mandatory ID checks (and a freely issued, Federal Voter ID Card) for all elections.
I too want every ELIGIBLE voter to vote, if they want to vote.
I also do not want a single IN-eligible voter to vote. Not one.
There is nothing political about this position as I pretty much loathe both (R) and (D). In my view, this is basic system design common sense.
