It sounds as though Alison Lundergan Grimes is a BIG advocate of voter fraud. I guess it’s only natural. She’s a DemocRAT. Fraud is the only way DemocRATS can “win” an election.

I guess 1 vote per person is one of those racial things. The Jim Crow Laws that the libs like to bring up in these discussions was #1-Democrat party passed to #2-deny the one person, one vote based entirely on race. It feeds into some peoples belief that they deserve multiple votes based on past experiences and the fact that some people just vote incorrectly.

Even the most impressionable among the Democrats know that this is a premeditated (and committee-developed) big letter LIE.

It deceives nobody, not even the hopelessly delusional.

Cognitive Dissonance is important here. Dems do not want to admit that IDs at voting booths prevent fraud, so they go along with blaringly obvious lies in order to reduce the dissonance. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance. Since the Dems do not want to modify their attitudes, beliefs, and actions, they will reduce dissonance by justifying, blaming, and denying. (credit to Wiki for the last part)

I wonder if he’s on Soros’ payroll for the Secretary of State project...?

Photo ID requirements are indeed a “barrier to the ballot box”. They make it difficult for people who are ineligible to vote to cast ballots or for voters to vote in multiple locations. Dems hate that.

I hope he can pull it off. The top of the ticket seems like a bit of a bust.

FR is focusing on 2012, but there are a number of important elections happening in 2011. In October we have the West Virginia Governor special election. In November we have Kentucky electing gov, SecState and other important offices, as well as state legislature elections in Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Virginia.

All these state elections will have important consequences for 2012.

We’re talking about overturning current law. Somebody had some foresight for a change.

Hey, I’m still angry about Dr. Fletcher being crucified and run out of office for doing what Democrats have been doing in KY for decades without question.

Just an idle thought. The US Post office required me to produce a photo ID and sign for a package worth $2.20.

It’s that double standard Republicans are apways held to. And the Left in KY is very sneaky. They have tunnel vision because they are afraid, They’re afraid to believe what Republicans believe because they know they’re not strong enough to believe whst a Republicans believe. They truly don’t want to face life as it is, compete fairly in the marketplace, face their mistakes and failures. Liberals can’t face the fact they are not perfect, that there are always others that are smarter or more skilled. Liberals at their core are afraid they won’t measure up so they work to destroy those that excel. Anyone who promotes standards that liberals feel they can’t live up to have to be destroyed as well.
