    1. @malice8 “you’re” research? LOL. no wonder trump loves the uneducated. you make it far easier for him to scam you, which is what he’s been doing to morons for decades.

    1. @Fading Wolf In Texas student ID’s will not be accepted but concealed weapon ID’s will be. Why is that? In North Carolina public assistance ID’s and state employee ID”s will not be accepted. Why is that? It is true that the majority of public assistance and state employees are non-white in North Carolina. Currently when you register to vote you must provide a valid address (homeless individuals have to jump through hoops), and a driver’s license or non-driver ID number on the voter registration form. If you don’t have an ID you can provide the last 4 of your social security number with some states requiring the full social. This issue is not about what you think it’s about.

    2. @WS P In Texas student ID’s will not be accepted but concealed weapon ID’s will be. Why is that? In North Carolina public assistance ID’s and state employee ID”s will not be accepted. Why is that? It is true that the majority of public assistance and state employees are non-white in North Carolina. Currently when you register to vote you must provide a valid address (homeless individuals have to jump through hoops), and a driver’s license or non-driver ID number on the voter registration form. If you don’t have an ID you can provide the last 4 of your social security number with some states requiring the full social. This issue is not about what you think it’s about.

    3. @Trapped in America What exactly do you say I think it’s about. If your answer isn’t “An obvious power grab by corrupt Democrats to steal all future elections” you’re incorrect.

    4. @TheTinLion why was every court case thrown out even the supreme court with the conservative judges

    5. @David Brennan There were only three cases and all were dismissed based on standing. None were dismissed due to lack of evidence or the merit of the case. Basically the court ruled it couldn’t hear the cases because procedural timelines were not met.

    1. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” -John 3:16.

      The invitation to believe on Him and His redemptive work on the cross is open to anyone and everyone. He knows you by name, and pulls out all the stops to call YOU to Him and get YOUR attention. I am writing this that any who see the truth in my words would believe, and that any who don’t would at least know what they are refusing. This is a free gift from God — not this religious trash that is man-made and doesn’t satisfy anything but man’s pride. Jesus loves the crap out of you, more than any of us understand, and wants you to come to Him by BELIEVING ONLY, so that you can be taken care of by Him and satisfied forever.

      Please, either believe today, or look more into it.

    2. Two failed impeachment trials, failed immigration policy, failed Russian collusion, failed trade negotiation, etc. But they keep pounding away. So who knows….?

  1. It’s simple to understand, really. It’s easy to cheat without requiring ID. That’s what the argument is really about.

    1. @Chris topher Expanding ID to multiple forms is literally the best option thats what other 1st world countries do lol. Could be a passport, drivers license, social security card etc.

    2. @John Godley yes you would think that with more people voting they would want to expand voting options and voting stations, but they see it as a threat and begin to close polling voting locations and take away options in areas with large populations. They are rotten to the core.

    3. yet IDs have never been required before and voting was just fine. not to mention, voter fraud at the polling booth happens about as often as someone getting struck by lightening. you might as well justify it due to the possibility of alien abduction

    4. @Chris topher In Texas student ID’s will not be accepted but concealed weapon ID’s will be. Why is that? In North Carolina public assistance ID’s and state employee ID”s will not be accepted.

    1. All states should make it their policy to issue free I,Ds to all its citizens. Problem solved. Why won’t they do that? Because this whole voting rights thing is only about keeping poor people from voting. Period.

    2. @FactsarenotdirtyFwords well funny thing you could basically vote with an out of State ID in Nv last time and even nursing home occupants have IDs. You can’t get food stamps, SS or welfare apts without an ID. Even in various States you have to have an ID to get any services so which poor people are you talking about? Even homeless vets have a DD214.

    3. In Texas student ID’s will not be accepted but concealed weapon ID’s will be. Why is that? In North Carolina public assistance ID’s and state employee ID”s will not be accepted. Why is that?

    4. @Elizabeth Laird please see my post in response to another comment about what it takes to register to vote incase you have forgotten what you had to do to register.

    5. @Trapped in America I have voted for years and years. In Nv when you get an ID or a Driver’s license they ask. I carry a basic application in my car that people can fill out or do online. As I recall you need a birth certificate and SS #. Qualify for me who is being disenfranchised.

    1. @nightstalker1124 We the People have no election problem, we have a democratic politician problem!

  2. “And do not mix the truth with falsehood or conceal the truth while you know [it].” (Holy Quran 2::42)

  3. Ironically when it comes to recalling a governor from a blue State automatically has to verify all the votes but when it comes to winning they don’t care how they win ….

    1. @Drew Berube he gave himself to himself to give to us,sounds really strange don’t you think.thats religion for you.

    2. We could end all of this with term limits for everyone. Just like the president but no one will vote for it….

    3. the right can only win through voter suppression because America is overwhelmingly democratic. Facts dont care about your feelings

    1. and everyone’s vote should count, right? the orange con man was tweeting “stop the count!” when he was ahead in certain swing states. that is un-American! trump is treason!

    2. @Trapped in America So only a birth certificate? Which in Washington state you have to provide to get your driver’s license and we can register to vote when we get our licenses or state ID card. Don’t all driver’s license departments ask for a birth certificate to verify that you’re old enough to drive?

    1. What standing against federalizations of elections? Have you even read the bill yourself? It’s a federal power grab and I highly recommend people tune in and read the crap that’s being pushed by Dems. If not, people deserve all the tyranny that’s coming as if we don’t have enough already.

  4. Interesting how you’re cherry picking parts of the bill….. go over the top 20 points not just 4…….

  5. Voting right destruction* although they probably don’t know voting isn’t an ammendment right.

  6. How many times has Manchin repeatedly made a stand against removing the filibuster? It was what, two weeks ago that he wrote that Op Ed? The conversation about HR1 is becoming pointless.

    1. @Josh Thorne sometimes you gotta draw the line in the sand and say “this is what we stand for and they oppose”. it defines you and them.

    2. @Nucumber I agree, but we’ve been forcing symbolic showdowns like this for the last 20 years. It’s a losing strategy.

    3. @Josh Thorne the last twenty years have seen successes – obamacare for example. but yeah, it’s a long drawn out and frustrating process, a marathon. the trick is to make it clear what we’re for and they’re against. what’s the option? do nothing?

    4. @Josh Thorne well, i’m frustrated too but i don’t know what else can be done. i’m open to suggestions

  7. Republicans are moving towards APARTHEID ,segregation, political and economic discrimination against nonwhites
