Comments on: Ohio secretary of state: Why is the Obama campaign only suing us? http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/07/19/ohio-secretary-of-state-why-is-the-obama-campaign-only-suing-us/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: texan5555 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/07/19/ohio-secretary-of-state-why-is-the-obama-campaign-only-suing-us/comment-page-1/#comment-432385 Wed, 25 Jul 2012 18:34:53 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=41277#comment-432385 “How exactly does voting harm others?” You are joking right? If an idiot or extremely crooked individual (not just the standard crooked politician) gets voted in then they can do extreme damage and it has happened before from the municipal to the national levels. I agree that one should be required to prove their identity before voting for the people who will be governing our country.

You need a valid ID to buy beer because we don’t sell alcohol to minors. You need a valid ID to get on a plane because we want to know who you are before you enter an aircraft. You need a valid ID to cash a check because it might not be written out to you. You need a valid ID to get into a night club because, here again, we do not sell alcohol to minors. All of these things you have mentioned are safeguards put in place to minimize the occurrence of harm being done to oneself or others. How exactly does voting harm others? If you look at the results of putting voter ID laws in place you will see that a large proportion of certain demographics are then not allowed to vote. This is the objective, it has nothing to do with safety and if you come at me with the ignorant argument of “voter fraud” then I will ask you to prove how many occurrences of voter fraud have taken place in the entire history of this voting system. I am beginning to expect that a majority of Americans are complete failures when it comes to being able to validate information or think critically about issues. You can claim “Liberal Democrats play the race card” all day long but it just shows the rest of us that the only card you have to play is the ignorant moron card. What a pathetic excuse for a human being.

But somehow, when your voting for the President of the United States, you should get a free pass from having a valid identification. The point is clear. Liberal Democrats are playing the race card to hi-jack our democracy. It’s an affront to all responsible Americans, minorities or not.

The Obama administration loves to sue any and all State endeavors that are designed for the greater good. If his administration spent half as much time on sound and well timed policies as they do suing the states we’d probably be much farther along in our National recovery. But, hey the Emperor has his agenda and priorities. They’re convoluted to say the least, but at least we know why we are where we are today.

Because today’s Rasmussen Reports Poll has Romney at 46% and Obama 43%. The fraudulent votes ARE needed by Democrats!

In fact, I’ve always thought that ALL voting booths should be open the *exact* same timeframe for Presidential elections across the USA. Example: *ALL* voting booths from Maine to Hawaii should be open from 7am to 8pm E.S.T. and widespread opportunities for early voting either directly at every county election office or proxy voting in the month leading up to election day. By posting signs at every local government office, all US post offices, multiple periodic announcements in the local newspapers and local and national TV stations starting in January of the election year would be plenty of notice and early warning for EVERYone.

Interstate synchronization of Presidential elections makes sense to me. Doing so would prevent one state’s results from influencing the swing votes in another –and minimize voter fraud.

Of course, I’ve also always thought we should do away with electoral votes and just have the popular vote. Not likely to happen, but something that would validate MY vote actually being counted.

Neither of these change are likely to happen in my lifetime… but I can dream, can’t I?

I am so dissapointed – I ran to the ACLU for help with my child in Massachusetts who was getting hurt on the bus by the bus driver in Chicopee, MA Acuna and the old monitor I don’t know her name. They were hurting my child through a person of whome they picked up and then let hurt my son only to dropp him off at the school and tell us they diden’t know what happened nor did they know why my son was acting up! Then the City of Chicopee, MA MAyor Bessenette tried to press charges agains me because I wanted to have the bus driver pressed against charges and so forth. The State woulden’t do anything for me nor would the office of discrimination in Springfield help nor would the office in DC help out either. I’m related to a president – but hey a Republican President. ACLU wanted to hire me down in NC and they wanted me to work for OBAMA in OHIO – wow – but they won’t enforce anything? My child was abused in Chicopee – nothing done about it – why?

Some of these registration forms were flagged by ACORN’s internal auditors for review by election officials. It was estimated by Project Vote that 400,000 registrations collected by ACORN were ultimately rejected, the vast majority for being duplicate registrations – wikipedia.org
