(Plato, this is for you too.)
Did you ever hear of "Acorn"?
No, not the kind from which big oak trees grow. I mean the totally discredited voting fraud machine that was associated with Obama's re election campaign. Only those who who endorse and favor voter fraud would oppose requiring government issued IDs. Now it's real simple Bambi, a college ID is not a government issued ID and a Tennessee Concealed Carry permit is. Also, the voter ID law is not a slap in the face to seniors citizens. Seniors want integrity in the electoral process.
I think you should consider the very troubling conclusions of a recent Pew Research Study:
Approximately 24 million—one of every eight—active voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate.
More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as active voters.
Approximately 2.75 million people have active registrations in more than one state.
The integrity of our electoral process and our liberty requires voter IDs.
Ian, I have a different metaphorical view of BHO and his thugs. Remember, Bush was a big government Republican progressive. BHO is a progressive on steroids....or is he a socialist /globalist?. Statism is the course he has set. Destruction of our of our freedoms,economy along with implementing a police state is his destination. It is long overdue that Obama's thugs are brought to justice. Hey Ian, did you hear about "fast and furious"? How do you feel about Obama trashing the Constitution Ian? Since you compare him to the Captain of the ship of state, how about a court martial? In non metaphorical terms Ian, can you say "impeachment"?
Oh my Sandyonsignal, you are desperate! Suggest you get off the algorian cool aid. Actually there are 31,487 dissenting scientists. Please check out http://www.petitionproject.org/signers_by_last_name.php?run=all.
Here is another interesting bit of info for you: A very recent survey from the Times Free Press with 1,477 respondents (at last check) showed that that 80% were NOT concerned about man made"global warming" (or "climate change" or "climate disruption" or whatever the latest catch phrase happens to be). Now if you are really interested seeking the truth, put Professor William Happer into a search engine. Happer occupies an endowed chair in physics at Princeton. He writes very well and succinctly about this. Remember, question with boldness. The truth has no agenda.
