As far as I’m concerned, if someone who is not me wants to put money into my account, then by all means....

I think that is for their own protection, not for ours. Before ID became standard for depositing funds, my brothers paycheck was routinely placed into another person's account. They eventually fired the teller who did this but it took some doing to get her replaced.

If I want to vote, I have to prove it is me and that I am a citizen. Anything less should not be tolerated.

The legal voting age is 18. If a teenager walked into the polling station, and got in line to vote, is the poll attendant allowed to ask for identification to prove that the teenager is 18 or older? How can a poll watcher enforce the age requirement without an ID? The answer is that they can't and that an ID is required. Well, if ID's are required for young citizens of the USA, then we must not discriminate against them. Therefore, regardless of age all people seeking to vote should be required to have a valid ID.

This is the Wiki bio on Jocelyn Benson and you can see why Soros had her on his list of SOS candidates he wanted.

Add....”use a credit card” to your list of requiring ID’s...I’ve been carded at many places just for trying to use my credit card...

You don’t just walk in....you have to be registered...I sign in at the actually polling place. They have my signature to compare with right on their sheet.

"...some people, especially older ones, get in a major huff when a new teller asks them for ID."

Well, I'm seventy-five and thank God almighty that I still have two or three of those brain cells that are active. If a new teller failed to ID me, I'd ask a couple of questions and perhaps "rat" him/her out to the manager. I wouldn't do it in a mean way, you understand. Just a precautionary measure. After all, it's potentially my bank account that's in jeopardy, not to even mention hundreds of others. And, as for voter ID, it's our republic that's in jeopardy.

I did not know of the transportation offers. But that just further proves that the RATS were blowing smoke.

Legally, the required ID has to be available free of charge, per Amendment XXIV.

“You constantly hear about voter fraud but you don’t see huge amounts of vote fraud out there,’’ Holder said.
Oh. Okay Eric. Then I guess committing 'a few' other Federal Crimes is okay too. As long it's not a huge amount, right? Like say One Bank Robbery, one Embezzlement for $100K, and say .... buying 'just one' fully automatic weapon.

Not that I would. I'd just like to know what your rules are.

Holder will speak at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Libary and Museum in Austin, Tex., which honors the president who shepherded the 1965 Voting Rights Act into law. …

Owww Weee "Landslide Lyndon" ?? Voter Fraud???? Why yes, that is how he beat Coke Stevenson, with the help of George Pharr (duke of Duvall). Talk about the kettle calling the pot black.

Perhaps Holder can explain in VERY small words about the vote in NOv 2008 with Angle & Reid.

Angle had a 10 point swing OVERNIGHT-—the night of the election!!!

I will admit that she wasn’t my favorite candidate, but a 10 point swing!!!! That says ACORN FRAUD loud & clear.
