Andy, do you have any proof that the Democrats rely upon voter fraud? Any proof that voter fraud is a widespread problem? I don't think you will find any. Voter ID regulation is largely a solution in search of a problem - there's never been a showing that voter fraud is actually a problem.
Rather, the problem with voter ID legislation is that, coupled with voter suppression techniques, it deters the poor, the elderly, or the recent and legal immigrants from voting (because they think they can't/aren't allowed to). In the end, isn't this "Political IQ" test just another one of your blog posts, making up in vitriol what it lacks in substance?-Ave 12:01, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
- I've never heard someone deny that voter fraud exists, and it plainly helps Democrats more than Republicans. I can add cites and welcome you to do so also.--Aschlafly 12:27, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
- Please do add cites; there's legitimate controversy, I can see, over the first question (whether voter fraud exists), but you're the first one I've heard claim that one party benefits and encourages it. Since you're the one asserting the point, I guess it's your burden to carry, but I'll research too.
- A side note: do you deny the incidental effects on voter suppression? That it chills some voters? The systemic problem is more what I'm worried about, rather than the individual voter.-Ave 12:50, 11 May 2008 (EDT)
