SCOTUS has upheld voter ID. 

Given how the current majority was chosen, why should that be a surprise? 5-4 decisions leave room for doubt.

A rational person would surmise a lot of illegal voting is going on because the chances of getting caught are so low. It's much like why a lot of people drive over the speed limit. This is very basic stuff.

 

Now where on Earth did you get the crazy idea that getting an ID or anything else in life needs to be easy? That concept is just plain bizarre.

Since you have to give a great deal of identifying information in order to register to vote, the chances of getting caught are high if there is a review of votes or audit of voter rolls.  Also, as noted, the penalties are stiff and the benefit is usually nonexistent.

 

My argument has been that getting a voter ID is difficult to impossible for some people.  The "crazy ID that getting an ID" should be easy comes from posters like Crazy Alex, who wrote:  "Regardless, they should get an ID. It's easy and cheap and all normal Americans should have one whether or not they vote."  in post #503 on this topic.

Not to anyone who has paid attention to how many elderly people Cuomo murdered with his insanely stupid policy of forcing nursing homes to take COVID-19 patients. And you should probably read what the topic of this thread is before babbling about deflection. Oops!

In the early days of the infection tough choices had to be made in order to keep hospitals from being overwhelmed.  Hindsight has shown some of the decisions made were mistakes.  However New York learned from these mistakes and now has a very low infection and death rate.

 

Unfortunately states such as Florida, Texas, Arizona, etc. have not learned from these mistakes.

Because voting is a right. Not something you have to earn.

Like owning a gun.  And here we are again.  It takes an ID, a background check and "permission" from local government to exercise that right.  So I guess you oppose all that stuff for purchase of a gun?

Given New York has over 11 times more deaths than Texas while having a 30% lower population than Texas, there's really no learning any other state should be seeking from New York. Cuomo and De Blasio screwed the pooch up, down and sideways.

Given that New York is averaging less than a thousand new cases a day, while Texas more 6,000, Arizona almost 4,000 and Florida more than 8,000 (now the nations leader in new infections), there's really no question that New York is doing something right and these other states getting things very wrong.

Yes, it's true. It's cheap and easy to get an ID. SCOTUS has upheld voter ID. And anyone who is serious about having any sort of life already has or should have an ID. This is very basic stuff.

So you've gone from it's easy to get an ID to it shouldn't be easy back to it is easy.

 

You've also gone back to making the repeatedly disproven claim that it is easy to get an ID.  Try working with real world facts.  https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/getting-a-photo-id-so-you-can-vote-is-easy-unless-youre-poor-black-latino-or-elderly/2016/05/23/8d5474ec-20f0-11e6-8690-f14ca9de2972_story.html

Guns are used to commit violent crimes with appalling frequency in this country.  Votes aren't.

The day someone gets murdered by a voting machine, you will have made a cogent point.

Pure Deflection.  Is owning a gun a right?  is it?  You  just can't stand having your argument that requiring IDs to vote are an imposition destroyed by your refusal to acknowledge that therefore it is a violation of the right to buy a gun.  IN truth neither is an unjust imposition.

 

Luckily others reading this see the hypocrisy.  Asking for an ID to vote is not a great imposition and there is no evidence that anyone in the USA is having problems getting valid ID.  More pure projection from the left that there is voter suppression when none exists.

No one has ever been murdered by a fraudulent check. Abolish checking IDs to cash a check! Woo hoo I love this game!

Wow, I didn't know they had special rules for latinos, blacks and old people to make getting an ID more difficult.

No, your gun nonsense is pure deflection.  Rights are restricted when necessary.  That's why you can't cry "Fire" in a crowded theater just for the fun of it, and you must have a background check before you purchase a gun. 

 

When someone proves there is a problem with illegal voting that is greater than the problem of disenfranchising voters with ID requirements, then ID"s will be justified.  Until then, voter ID laws are simply a tool to suppress the vote.

 

"there is no evidence that anyone in the USA is having problems getting valid ID."

 

Total BS, addressed just a few posts before yours.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/courts_law/getting-a-photo-id-so-you-can-vote-is-easy-unless-youre-poor-black-latino-or-elderly/2016/05/23/8d5474ec-20f0-11e6-8690-f14ca9de2972_story.html

No, but people have been cheated by a fraudulent check.  Show me a national or state-wide election in modern history in which voter fraud resulted in the result being changed.
