One of the most important responsibilities we have is to protect not only our own rights, but each other's as well.
Bulbs - "... so you can't prove it is happening because you haven't investigated it enough, so you skip the proof and go right to the solution that will impact innocent people?"
"Dead" people voting isn't enough proof for you? That impacts the vote of innocent people.
Bulbs - "Why not implement an effective ID system first? Why do things backward?"
Nothing backwards here - Voter fraud exists. An ID system HAS been implemented! That's the subject of the editorial (if you haven't taken the time to actually read it yet). You just don't think it's "effective". I think the resistance and weak arguments against it are proof of effectiveness.
Bulbs - "And if the NRA believes in anything, it's that gun control laws don't work, so why support this one if all it does is make more criminals?"
How does supporting a law, proving who you are with a photo ID in order to vote, "make more criminals"??
Bulbs - "Of course that there is a substantive difference between the rights is no matter."
If your Kool-Aid server and you believe the voting rights (of someone that has paid their debt to society) should be restored, why not automatically restore all the rights to "now law-abiding felons who have completed their sentences". At least be consistent with your reasoning instead of "cherry picking" rights for your agenda.
"Documentable voter fraud is exceedingly rare, and typically low in volume when it does occur." -
Perhaps it's the undocumentable voter fraud that requires such measures.
"If those men and women, including parolees and probationers, have been rehabilitated as their release from prison indicates, why should their right to vote remain suspended?" - Why should their right to bear arms remain suspended?
"The United States under the Obama administration has managed to steer the economy out of the Great Recession of 2007 ..."
What about the Great Recession of 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012...??
What?? No blame on the republicans??? :->
In order to maintain your "illusion" of us, let's just say, we're use to seeing these beautiful scenes as we look down our noses at you..... :)
No need for an investigation, pr356. The Editor already has it figured out. Erlanger's security issue is tied to the Republicans. WOW! Really.....
