Another Ridiculous Liberal Meme

By Wyatt Earp | July 18, 2011

Of all the b.s. memes liberals throw out there, this is by far the one that angers me the most: “Demanding photo ID from voters will certainly disenfranchise (insert race, sex, or creed here).”

It’s crap, and they know it. Thankfully, the measure just passed the PA House and is on its way to the Senate. It’s a move that will surely cut down on the rampant voter fraud in Philly – and throughout the state. Naturally, the libtards think the policy is racist/sexist/ageist.

A group providing legal services to senior citizens is worried that a bill requiring most people to have a photo ID to vote will disenfranchise many elders. The bill, passed by the Pennsylvania House, awaits action in the Senate, and Karen Buck, executive director of the SeniorLAW Center, is hoping these politicians heed her objections: that an estimated 18% of seniors no longer have government issued ID’s, and some would have a devil of a time getting one.

“We do understand that people say you need photo ID for lots of things today and we certainly understand that argument, but traveling or going into a business or certain types of transactions cannot be equated with a fundamental right of citizenship such as the right to vote.”

Never mind the fact that you need photo ID to drive, fly, buy a car, buy a home, check into a hotel, and dozens of other things people do every single day. Facts only get in the way of a good liberal talking point.

If Buck was intellectually honest, she would be fighting just as hard for military personnel stationed overseas. They actually were disenfranchised in the 2008 election, but since most military personnel are conservative, they don’t fit Ms. Buck’s parameters.

    “…an estimated 18% of seniors no longer have government issued ID’s…”

    Really? Then how do they cash their soshul skurity checks?

    BTW, I though stationing armed Black Panthers at polling places was supposed to cut down on voter fraud in Philly.

    There’s also the fact that a “right to vote” is mentioned nowhere in the Constitution.

    John D – That’s like Obama claiming 80% of Americans are okay with tax cuts. Many libs can just spout off incorrect statistics, because really, who will challenge them on it?

    Budd – “Separation of Church and State” also isn’t in there. That doesn’t stop them from claiming that it is.

    Orchid – Isn’t it amazing what can get done once an idiot – Rendell – is out of the governor’s mansion?

    Even the layabouts need an ID to apply for welfare and handouts.

    In a center/center-right country two things give the left an advantage when the right presents an iffy candidate: voting and the media.

    Honestly, I’m not so sure we can correct both those problems (according to the new book Left Turn the media votes Dem like 97% of the time). An easier solution would be stronger candidates from the right for office.

    Whenever we do that we win.

    Indiana passed a voter id law.
    Seniors and low income people can get a free state id card.

    I’ve always found it shocking when I go to vote and I don’t need photo ID.

    “Oh hai, you’re Randal Graves; you look like you could be a Randal Graves. Enjoy your voting day!”

    suck it.

    They have asked for photo ID every time I vote in Montgomery County, PA.

    Honestly, any cries of racism/sexism/geezerism is just people that need to STFU and get a hobby.

    Does this mean that the ACORN and SEIU operatives will have to get multiple ID’s to keep up their theme of vote early, vote often? These libtards would even object to dyeing their thumbs as proof of voting like they do in some underdeveloped countries.

    The military have often been disenfranchised. Thousands of military ballots were not counted in Florida in the 2000 election.

    My daughter said they often did not get their ballots to even vote in the Marines.

    Chris C – I’ll be happier when Rick Perry jumps into the race, since Rubio and Christie are sitting this one out.

    Jeff – But even then, women need not apply.

    Rick – Same here in PA. Non-driver’s ID is free – or virtually free anyway.

    Jon – Yeah, intimidate voters with no threat of arrest or prosecution.

    Randal – I always present my ID when I vote. I noticed quite a few people in my neighborhood do. I guess it’s a preemptive “Look, I’m legal” thing.

    Lou – There’s no valid argument against showing a photo ID – except for those people who want to commit voter fraud.

    Doc – Yeah, when a hellhole like Iraq thinks it’s prudent . . .

    Ingineer66 – There were some really close races in the states mentioned in that link – including PA. Races that could have gone another way if the votes were counted – and if they were for the eventual loser, that is.

    I’m not sure about other states, I’m going to assume they are similar, but in Florida you have to have some sort of state issued ID. Either an ID card or Driver’s License.

    I’m from the big liberal country north of you guys and when I voted this spring I had to bring a photo ID (drivers license), and a 2nd approved proof of residencency (a phone bill).

    If you’re so disconnected from society that you can’t come up with simple shit like this, then maybe you shouldn’t be allowed to vote anyways.

    When I go to the doctor I have to show a photo I.D. plus insurance card but then again I am paying

    Ingineer, I heard that a lot with the guys I know who served. It was SOP, at least for those stationed in lib bastion states, to not even get the ballots until a day or so before they were due back. It also wasn’t uncommon to get the ballots until up to a week after the election was over. Like I’ve said elsewhere, if they can have early voting 2 months early targeted at inner city minorities, they can sure as hell send out the military’s ballots more than a week before they’re due back.

    The most infuriating thing is, that in a lot of states, it doesn’t matter if they got them on time or not unless it was a tie with the standard ballots. A lot of states won’t even tap into the absentee ballots unless there’s a tie within a margin of error in the popular vote.

    Otis – It certainly makes sense.

    Old NFO – Because it’s asinine; you know, the libs’ specialty.

    Fozzy – Exactly. It’s not that difficult.

    Crusty – I have to do the same.

    Skip – And that’s what the libs want for the rest of the country: idiotic, incompetent politicians.

    Ranba – You would think the people protecting the freedom to vote would be the first ones receiving ballots.
