Great way to enable voter fraud from illegal immigrants!

Wm Tell, I often disagree with you, but you are SO right. This is such easy fraud. Tragic. I can't believe aa our country has many tens of millions of world people here, working on H1B visas, illegals, and a variety of non-Americans all the time.
We are in desperate need of voter ID verifications. We should be exploring various means of verifications and insisting of voter INTEGRITY ! ! Nothing could be more of an invitation to corruption , foul play, and 'fixing'['., a huge invitation to voter fraud. All proud Americans should want integrity in our sacred voting process, not just say any person of the world can show up and
corrupt our process on election day.
Tragedy ! ! !

Yes, by golly. There has been a total of 16 cases of demonstrated voter fraud in the past decade. This is something we really need to worry about. It's better to prevent a couple million eligible people from voting than to risk another 16 cases of fraud.

Vote Mitt -- He's a man of the people, unless they're freeloaders like his dad was.

Vote Democrat, then another 1000 jobs like Comcast can move out of California, leaving another 1000 unemployed. The Democratic leaders in the Assembly and Senate are the voting majority, when it comes to passing all of the laws here in our State. Try voting Republican and keep the JOBS HERE!!! We can't do any worse. By the way former Gov. Arnold S. was not a true Republican. Let's get this State moving in the right direction bringing companys back and providing well paid jobs.

Where to start? It has been widely known that no significant cases of voter fraud have occurred. Even the PA court case, the supporters of the photo ID publicly stated that no cases of voter fraud could be found.

Comcast leaving has more to do with the high cost of living, especially housing. Little to do with the Democrats. It's simple supply & demand that is driving up home prices, again. Because of the quality of life in the Tri-Valley, many people want to live here.

BTW, Comcast didn't tell all. There are other reasons, such as why located in Livermore? What were they thinking? Stockton is a better choice. Homes for $150,000.

Unbelievable says: "Where to start? It has been widely known that no significant cases of voter fraud have occurred. Even the PA court case, the supporters of the photo ID publicly stated that no cases of voter fraud could be found."

Let me share a little secret with you, Unbelievable. The Grand Ol' Party's attempts to suppress the vote are not linked to voter fraud. That's just a pretense that gullible turkeys such as Tell and Patriot are willing to gobble up because it feeds their fear and paranoia of people of color. Nope, we're attempting to keep millions of black people, brown people, poor people, old people, and young people away from the polls because, as we've known for a long time, the more people vote the less are our chances of electoral victory. We learned this from our political ancestors -- you know, the Klan and other vigilante groups -- who instituted poll taxes and impossible hurdles meant to keep black people out of the voting booth.

Guess what? I'm coming clean because our internal polls show that our efforts are backfiring. Too many free-thinking people are seeing through the ruse. So, out comes my trusty etch-a-sketch pencil because, get ready, I'm about to present a NEW ME to the American public!

Vote Mitt -- We want a president who will try any strategy to win, no matter how nefariously immoral it might be. Victory at all costs!

Mr. Mittens, I believe we are on the same page. The extremists on the right found it easier to take a way the rights of people to vote than discount "chads" to win an election.

Sad, but these people think they are on the side of Righteousness.

Amazingly bigotted, dontcha think? Your underlying assumption is that minorites are too stupid and/or lazy to obtain an ID. This sounds like something Robert Byrd would say. You know, that famous (or infamous) prominent Dem who was also a member of the Klan.

You really should give your fellow dems more credit......I'm shocked that you find them incapable of even the most basic functions. No wonder they've become so dependent on dem handouts.
