Arizona and feds clash over voter registration

A recent court ruling could confuse state voters: If they register to vote using a federal form, they don't have to show proof of citizenship, but if they register using a state form, they do.

I said it before, but I’ll repeat myself since this story repeated itself…

There is no legit reason why any citizen could not prove their citizenship.

How do you survive in the 21st century without proof of citizenship? No bank is going to open you an account or cash any check without you having ID. And, no government social program of any sort is going to give you anything but a check.

Am I really supposed to believe that there is this huge cache of minority, democrat voters who are living without ID of any kind, and apparently without government assistance of any kind?

Am I supposed to believe that any law created to protect our most precious, basic, fundamental right as US Citizens would really deny any legit voter the right to vote? And, isn’t this profiling, anyway? Anyone without ID must be minority and must be democrat, right? I mean…that’s what the story is telling me. So, that’s profiling, and profiling is bad I keep reading.

Oh, and by the way, as long as Raul Grijalva has his office I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever believe that voter fraud isn’t a game-changing problem. No electorate is that stupid, not even this one.

Instead of hitting the thumbs-down button, perhaps you reading this can do something more productive by explaining to me how it is possible for someone to exist in 21st century United States without government-issued identification. Because, I am legitimately not understanding this.

The usual lie here: “The poor can’t afford to get a photo ID.”

From the AZ DMV website (emphasis added): “4.Pay the ID card application fee, currently $12, by cash or check. There is no fee for applicants aged 65 years and over, or for recipients of the federal supplemental security income disability payments.”

Perhaps they cannot afford a driver’s license - because they can’t afford the liability insurance? Are they driving around now without a license - and without insurance?

@RealityObserver

Well, the DMV also issues ID only cards for non-drivers. I wonder if the same sort of price breaks exists for the ID only cards.

Any reasonable thinking person knows this whole thing is bullplop. I keep reading that there’s roughly 12 million border jumpers in our country here. Obama is doing everything he can to keep them here, and we’re just supposed to believe with that inexcusably large number here and lack of protections from doing so that none of them are voting? Seriously?

Who was it that stated that the masses would sooner fall for a big lie than a small one? Perhaps it’s that logic behind the constant reprint of this bullplop piece. (Yes, Sentinel, this is a reprint. This has been posted more than once before…different authors, different titles, but identical dishonest content)
