    Majorities don’t matter to the loser in the White House. Exterminate the White House in November.

    Of course they do. The remaining 24% were illegals, did not speak English, did not understand the question or radical marxists.

    After hearing the Black Panther talks ,, We need Picture ID, With proof they are still Human ,There was a women on TV about a month ago that said she voted about 100 times in last Election , Get rid of Holder and the Chicago gang, make sure the voting machines are checked to see who are getting the votes , make sure our servicemen votes Count , last time post office did not get some back in Time PICTURE ID

    It is fairly simple. Obama and Holder do not want to disenfranchise the illegal voters as it will be their certain defeat in November 2012. Democrats haven’t won an election fairly now in decades and now it becomes necessary to change this as the far left has taken over their party. Deceit and dishonesty is their game now and anyone who votes Democrat today needs to have their head examined.

    You need ID to buy tobacco or beer. You need an ID to drive or fly on an aircraft. You need ID to get into Obama events. Why not an ID to vote?

    Corrupticut started ID’s years ago & I didn’t like it at first.But I use my “Carry Permit” & realize the absolute necessity for it now.

    It has been made chrystal clear that a photo I.D is required. Let’s close the books on this issue shall we?

    Virtually every European country has national ID cards. Why shouldn’t the USA? No one should be allowed to vote unless they have a valid birth certificate, a legal ID, and have been fingerprinted. Voter fraud and falsification has always been a problem with elections, and with our present-day careless government, it will grow worse.

  10. Let’s see. Who’s been adamantly against EVERY form of voter ID or having the dead purged from voter rolls? The democrats, every time. They are the masters of zombie voting scams. Wanna see how easy it is to zombie vote? Search youtube for NH voter fraud. Just walk up with a name, any name, and bingo, you have your democratic ballot.
