"Lucille" is my BanHammer!!!
1) Its a straw man statement. Like those insisting that the NFL Lockout was due to players refusing to play an 18 game schedule or the new abortion laws are fine because limiting it to 20 weeks is what its all about, focusing on the "get an id" part does a discredit to everyone who actually understands the situation.
If this was just about "getting an id", why is Ohio cutting voting hours for Democrat districts but extending them for Republican districts? If this was just about "getting an id", why did Pennsylvania enact the laws but fail to allow 700k people to get their id's? If this was just about "getting an id", why did Rick Scott enact voter purges against lawfully registered voters?
The number of actual cases of voter fraud are in the single digits over a 10 year span. Any other numbers suggesting higher considers mistakes made on a ballot "voter fraud". Even for those there are less then a 100 cases the last time i looked.
Meanwhile, firearms are used in thousands of crimes per year in this country. Registration not only is helpful in solving those crimes and identifying the criminals, it is suppose to help weed out the crazies.
Keeping guns away from psycho's is something conservatives should be pounding table for(as it makes those who own weapons for legitimate purposes look bad) but apparently fighting voter fraud is vastly more important. In totally unrelated news, 7 more people were shot up in Florida this past weekend. Thankfully, those involved didnt commit voter fraud before their deaths.
Ive already listed the tactics used and how they make no sense in their stated goal. But suggesting that "fighting voter fraud!" and "making sure everyone has an id" is the stated goal is pretty laughable. Time and again Republicans have admitted their goal is to steal an election.

Vote early vote often thats how NJ was built
But I'm sure you know as well as most how disenfranchised a large portion of poor people are in this country. I assume it's something they've just learned to live with. Honestly, I'm betting that services and stores that generally require IDs have just stopped asking for them in certain parts of the country...
I'm actually curious about something. I've never been asked for ID at the polls in my life. How many people here have?
