I've looked at the new bill. It sucks. Our side caved.

Anon,

How exactly did your side cave? The bill accomplishes exactly what it was supposed to - provide that every voter has picture ID. It also removed the battle cry of disenfranchisement by allowing alternate forms of ID and paying for ID for those that can demonstrate financial hardship. It seems this is one the few sensible bills to come through this group so far this year. Please note that the term sensibility implies some actual genuine effort at addressing problems (voter fraud) and impact (disenfranchisement). Seems to be a win win for both sides. Unless you were somehow looking to punish the other side - but you would never want that.

maybe his (her?) side is the side that opposes any voter id?

The only problem I have with student ID's is that transfer students could have two of them. It's probably not a big deal.

The problem is it doesn't bar illegal aliens from voting which was the original intent by weak kneed Republitards. That's ok, after the 30 million are granted amnesty over the next few months, it'll all be over for the Republiturds anyway. In a way, I look forward to the children of RINOs having to beg and suffer at the hands of naturalized illegal aliens. We deserve exactly what's coming and RINOs are to blame as much as liberals if not more.

No comment from the extremist left? Means I'm right.

Here is an email I received concerning something discussed at the GRNC workshop. Once again Rico is ahead of the curve.

Demographics Favor the GOP — Unless They Blow It

By M. STANTON EVANS

-
The liberal-counterculture Democrats will of course continue fighting
this war in the schools and through the media, but have only one major
demographic weapon to counter the fertility gap that is working
relentlessly against them.

- That weapon is illegal immigration. As the population trends move
steadily conservative, the liberals must bring into the country and
enfranchise new voters who will reliably cast Democratic ballots.

- That, and that alone, is the real issue in the battle over
immigration and why the Democrats are so bent on gaining amnesty for
illegals. All the rest is window dressing.

- It's also the reason that this is the one issue above all others on
which Republicans, if they want to win, should not surrender.
