    I think people should have to show ID to purchase gasoline. It can be huffed and people who use it need to have licenses anyway to drive the vehicles that consume gas.

    NO ID! NO GAS!!!

    And maybe then one young, soon-to-be-Plumber, might be saved from a life of future drug abuse and wargarbling on forums.

    Only YOU can prevent drain brammage.

    Not a single election in this country has ever been swayed by voter fraud.

    Keep fighting the pink elephants your Republican masters tell you to fight. At least I have drugs to blame. You? Just severely misguided.






    *waiting for someone to point out the one instance of voter fraud that involved absentee ballots in the 60's. :trollface:

    If you're driving to the gas station, you should have ID with you, so sure!

    Spoken with the conviction of a man who has no idea what he's talking about, ane believes it anyway.

    Are my Republican Masters the same as Flushing's Republican Masters?

    Just curious.

    Or posessed of common sense, either or.

    Tell me PK, why should we not have ID Checks to vote. In your own words, if you please.

    Nope. Couldn't care less if it was, in fact, zero. It isn't of course, but it means little to me. The first step in a system is verifiction of the right to be within the system. I would want voter ID if it was 0 cases of fraud, or 1 trillion cases of fraud. Good system design does not require it either way.

    Either way, you don't know if it is, can't prove it isn't, won't check to see if it is, and won't ID check someone who shows up to vote for Mr. Fido Wooferstein the IVth.

    When your vote is effectively nullified before you even case it, the system is already dead.

    Forgive me if your wee rant on your Libertarian bonifides leaves me......wanting.

    Good luck with Law School. Nice to see a fresh young liberal going into the Law, we certainly don't have enough of you in THAT profession.
    Certainly not a libertarian. Just don't see an in-person voter fraud problem in this country. I do see a healthcare one, though - and the solution .

    Thanks on Law School, I'll try to learn as much as I can and maybe one day if the skills I develop are useful to someone on this board, I'd be happy to represent your interests. I don't want anything to do with politics in my professional life. I like to think I'm a better man than one involved in that racket.

    Then you are too young (which you are) to remember Cook County, Ill. during its heyday. Which actually still might be going on there.

    Elections are run at the local level and elections are stolen in this country all the time. The reason we haven't had serious reform after Gore/Bush is officials at the local level don't want reform.

    It makes perfect sense to put a registered resident voter to a vote count and ask that registered voter to identify themselves.

    Does that mean Republicans don't want to supress votes no. Does that mean Democrats don't want to stuff ballots, no.

    Agree, it IS a local problem. It is the county officials who wind up in office and town mayors and council members. They are the ones who reap major corruption rewards.
    Rarely is a U.S. Senator (if ever) the resulting beneficiary of fraud.
    Forget Bush/Gore (Bush had FL), the 1824 election was the real fiasco.

    Obviously.

    When everything is seen through the prism of party politics, thats not suprising. When one cannot even understand that without asking/confirming ID, ID fraud will not be found, there is little room for debate.

    I do see a healthcare one, though - and the solution .
    Socialism. Yes, I am aware of your view on that issue.

    Thanks on Law School, I'll try to learn as much as I can and maybe one day if the skills I develop are useful to someone on this board, I'd be happy to represent your interests.
    I can rest assured that you'll never represent my interests.

    With that said, I do, in all seriousness, wish you well. It's a difficult path, but a rewarding one. Or so I'm told.

    One day soon you too could be in the 1%.

How deplorable that it's come to tactics like this.

    Apache, millions of people try to fake their age to buy alcohol illegally. Myself included as an 18 year old. Did you know that there have been only 10 instances (or something miniscule) of counterfeit/illegal voting since 2000? People don't care enough about a vote to try and fake it. So why in the living f*ck is this law necessary?
    I read that American Airlines is in serious financial trouble because the TSA makes them ask for ID to ride on their planes, the dirty racists!

    Your posts are transparent and puerile.
