The reason that Democrats are not getting any traction with their over-the-top rhetoric about Voter ID is that voters KNOW that Voter ID makes sense.  It's reasonable and rational.

Cutting back on early voting, however, is counter-productive.  It looks mean and it is mean.  Hell, I love early voting and lots of other Republicans do too.  Why cut back on it?

Agreed.  If we got our butts out and helped our side get to the polls the way the Dims do, no election would be close.

On a related note, I heard Prager mention something recently:  why is it that when recounts occur, only the Dim side finds votes?  The Republicans and Libertarians never do.  That's really odd.  The Dims always find boxes of already-cast ballots in someone's trunk.  He said they vote in 2 places:  at the polls and at someone's trunk.

Nope, it's common sense.

Every new-fangled introduction to the voting process, including (but not limited to):
- early voting
- motor voter
- all kinds of "helpful" registration schemes
- provisional ballots
- electronic voting without a paper trail
- mail-in voting
- absentee ballots (with the exception of military and infirm)

... is a thinly-veiled attempt to introduce fraud into the system.

The voting process should be simple, as it was in the proverbial "old days". That is:
- You show up on election day to vote
- If you haven't pre-registered within a specific time frame, you don't vote
- If they don't know who you are, and you can't prove who you are, you don't vote.
- Only absentee ballots accepted are as above (from people who _really_ can't be there)

Call it as mean-spirited as you want, I don't give a damn.

If left unchecked, voter fraud is going to destroy any chance of getting things righted again (not that I believe there's much chance of that, anyway).

Uh, there is no widespread evidence of "voter fraud" anywhere.  Yes, there was a recent story of 70 people who improperly voted, and other stories of a person here or there. 

But it's silly to restrict voting opportunities.  Voter ID is an entirely different matter; THAT is where fraud can occur.  But allowing someone to show up a couple of weeks before an election to cast a ballot at their leisure so they don't have to stand in line is only common sense.

I say let voters decide.  I'm betting most voters like the convenience of early voting.

You saved me a lot of typing, thanks.

One word comes to mind, responsibility. Obama went to NC in 08 and overnight people could vote for nearly 2 weeks before. Now people can still vote early but not for weeks or some states a month ahead. The dems like this because they can stuff the ballot box for weeks busing in voters.

Bill Clinton speaking like this shows he is not a good ole guy from Arkansas that feels your pain. He and his wife are as corrupt as Obama. This also shows the desperation of the democrats that they are complaining about this.

Where's the evidence that voters are bussed in "for weeks" anywhere?

Voters were bused in, in WI.
Election workers reporting people bused in to vote.
Dem workers ACORN? were going to mental wards to get the D vote in NC
Overseas military ballots were not counted.
Obama got over 100% of the vote in Philly and some other places.

Do the research yourself.  The woman on the news confessing to busing (riding people) to vote in vans and the reports of people paying people to vote. No matter what I post I have a feeling you will say it is not enough evidence. But common sense prevails that there is a huge Obama get out the vote cheat machine.

Voter ID is the sine qua non of fighting election fraud.  Without a robust means of determining who is, and who is not, entitled to vote, getting rid of all early voting methods won't put much of a dent in existing election fraud because those who wish to engage in fraud will simply use the time-honored methods of rounding up a bunch of "voters", giving them the minimum info needed to satisfy the poll worker - like the name of one of the hundreds of thousands of dead people still on voter rolls - and then running them around to a whole bunch of different polling places to max out the number of votes they cast.

With a robust means of voter ID, it won't matter how early someone wants to vote, their early ballot will be subjected to the same stringent ID requirements, will be tossed if they cannot demonstrate their entitlement to vote, and once the fact of that early ballot is associated with their voter ID in the election district's records, will ensure that they don't try to cast any additional votes.

A subscriber to Obamacare must present  ID to get insured. In Bill's world, if someone doesn't have ID, does that mean that person doesn't get insurance? Would that be suppressing certain people who have no identification? And, that person would be subject to a fine for not having an ID. They want it both ways, and thinking people can see through it.

These people use any means they deem necessary to get votes, including illegal techniques to get their liberal person elected. Republicans should publically laugh this off, and make the democrats look like the idiots they are.

Because the more time you have to vote, the more time you have to run around to multiple precincts to vote. Early voting encourages voter fraud. Keeping the voting window relatively small helps make sure that people can vote, but vote only once.

Then absentee ballots should not be allowed.  period.  are we prepared to take that step?
