Tough ID laws could block thousands of 2012 votes

Jul 8, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CBS News

When Edward and Mary Weidenbener went to vote in Indiana's primary in May, they didn't realize that state law required them to bring government photo IDs such as a driver's license or passport.

I was in the doctor's office this week and 7 blaclk people came in and they all had picture IDs. The referral service called me this morning that they had made arrangements for me to see another doctor and that I must bring my insurance card and a photo ID> How do these people without picture IDs get medical help. They go to ER.

holder is out calling voter ID a poll tax.

Poll tax : "A poll tax (head tax or capitation tax, per U.S. English usage) is a tax of a portioned, fixed amount applied to an individual in accordance with the census (as opposed to a percentage of income)".

How is voter ID a pol tax?

holder = law breaking, coverup, idiot

The political left would love to have a proxy voting system where (at least) one vote is cast (either by or on behalf of) every warm body (possibly deaceased) in America (or other global state).

My father died at 85 years and 6 months. I have his old drivers licinse on the wall above my computer desk. He had not driven in a number of years but had his Id. A senior without an Id and a computer, a son, a daughter, a neighbor next door with a computer could more than likely get a state issued Id. If not a short trip to the dmv and a little evidence that you are who you are and about ten or fifteen minutes you will have an id. sometimes , if they have the right equipment, you can walk out the door with it. I just reported back to the hospital where i had three by passes. They copied my drivers licinese, my medicare card, My supplement insurance card. Some of the larger hospitals with ask for id just to check to see if you are who you are supposed to be. If they can afford to ride public transportation they can afford the small fee for an id. Also most traffic checks, police stops etc require you prove who you are even though you are not driving. Yours is a poor excuse for not having one. Ids would stop a lot of dead people from voting, although in this town, the illegals have a good busines, out of making fake ids and ss, drives licinese, dope licines. JUst takes a few dollars and they will fix you up. They are in real need of a id when they just came out of Mexico with a bag full of dope. Oh, yes, this is bammy and micheele's children i am talking about 1.2 million., to drain the taxpayers of their money. Have a good nite and don't take my word for it, if you have a phone, just call the dmv, if you don't take public transportation down to the dmv and they will tell you all about it.
Two points -
1. We have gotten along for a very long time without photo ID's in order to vote.
2. The incidence of voter fraud, despite what your side says, is negligible. Again, photo ID's are a cure in search of a disease.

By the way, the president's name os spelled O-B-A-M-A. Get used to it, for at least another four years.

our side keeps obliviously talking about ID's. The subject is PHOTO ID's. In most instances you mention, photo ID's are not required, with the exception of proof of age, if you look like you might be under age.

Once again, though photo ID's were not required in past elections, the incidence of voter fraud has been tiny.

Romney extends lead among Independents to 14 percent

Posted by Dan Spencer (Diary)
Tuesday, July 10th at 11:00AM EDT

In the new ABC News/Washington Post poll, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney extends his lead among Independents to 14 points, 53-39 percent. Two months ago, a POLITICO/George Washington University Battleground poll found Romney had a ten-point lead among the critical Independent voters.

The mainstream media is touting the poll as showing the race is “dead even”— a 47-47 percent Obama-Romney contest among registered voters. Yet the new poll contains many more warning signs for the Obamacrats.
Obama’s overall job rating is 47-49 percent, approve-disapprove (the same as in May). But his approvals are majority negative on:
1. The Economy, 44-54 percent;
2. Health Care, 41-52 percent (a numerical low in approval, with no bump from last month’s Supreme Court ruling); and
3. Immigration, 38-52 percent (also bumpless despite Obama’s halting enforcement against certain illegal aliens, who arrived as minors) via executive fiat.
Sixty-three percent say the country’s headed in the wrong direction.
This is hard to dispute in light of the very disappointing May and June unemployment reports and the 41 straight months of unemployment above 8 percent during the Obama presidency.

Obama’s biggest shortfall is on the deficit where he trails Romney by 25-70 percent. It’s not hard to see why. As of July 6, 2012, the national debt was $15,879,528,608,975.11 ($15.9 trillion). It was $10,626,877,048,913.08 ($10.6 trillion) when Obama became president. That’s a $5.3 trillion, or 50 percent, increase in less than four years. On July 3, 2008, Presidential candidate Obama said that adding $4 trillion in debt was “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic.” President-elect Obama warned us when he predicted “trillion-dollar deficits for years to come.” And President Obama promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his term not once but at least five times.

The new poll also offers additional evidence that Obama’s continuing and misleading attacks against Romney’s private sector experience at Bain Capital has not hurt Romney. The poll found an even split on whether his Bain Capital background is a major reason to support or oppose him (23-24 percent), with 50 percent saying it makes no difference.

And all these favorable findings for Romney come from another poll skewed toward Democrat results. The new poll used a sample of 33 percent Democrats, 24 percent Republicans and 36 percent Independents. As we have mentioned before, based upon exit polling, the 2008 electorate was 39 percent Democrat, 32 percent Republican, and 29 percent Independent. In 2010, it was 35 percent Democrat, 35 percent Republican, and 29 percent Independent. This makes liberal claims that Obama is tied with Romney unbelievable an more wishful thinking as in Wisconsin.

Obismal is counting on all those illegals to vote for him. Voter fraud will be rampant this election, you know, like a typical election in Chicago where the dead vote once, the Dems vote twice and other votes are "illegible".
This time is different. Usually, when the US is at war, we don't have a traitor in the White House.
Throw out that STINKING BUM in the White House before it's too late.

This whole issue has to do with proxy voting. The politicians and media don't refer to it as such yet; but that's what it's about.
Remember that term: proxy voting. It will become the subject of debate over the next several years; probably not in 2012, but certainly by 2016.

Democrats don't value the Vote as much as they value IDing folks to buy a beer. It's all about Values...or, in the case of what pass for Democrats these days....Lack thereof.

The left can't come out and say exactly what they want. They would get crushed. So they resort to lies, deceit, trickery and down right illegal activity.
