Pot callin the kettle black
dear newbie. Liking or disliking the point of your comments is irrelevant if you can not fully state the point of your comment with some background so we know what you are talking about. I have no political affiliation and like to be informed since both sides have a way wiith the truth that is not always straight. To be able to actual judge the merits of your comments they need some sort of context. The subject of this thread started by you is nver explained. I stated my personal opinion about the content of your message.
I am more agreement with Mik that is better to send too many forms out than not enough.
There may be a contingent of people sending back in forms to register somebody or something that is not entitled to vote. This is fraud. I have not heard of any significant number of people who actually vote under the fradulent registration. Fortunately (for those wrongfully accused) our law system is based on innocent until proven guilty. Law makers are trying to impose new legislation to make it more difficult to vote fradulently. The burden of proof will then rest with the voter and the individual voter's expense. Some of these people would find it very difficult to get an id if they have to supply an original birth certificate if one is not now available due to records being lost. The gist of the arguement is that a lot more people who would otherwise be eligible to vote would lose that eligiblity than are the actual number of cases of voter identity fraud.
The republicans have not demonstrated that there is a real need to cause the added hoops to jump through to vote.
I am still waiting to hear legitimate reasons for the need to have ID to vote. All I have heard from the republicans is bluster about isolated incidents of voter registration fraud and only one count of actual voting fraud of someone deliberately doing it for a news story.
Newbie you are the one who keeps rehashing the deal about what you are calling a legal birth certificate. Mik was only trying to figure out what your subject line was in reference to. Please do not respond until you have taken the time to reread all the posts in this thread and stop to come out with an intelligent response other than "don't read my posts".
