Democrat Game Plan - Second Verse, Same as the First

The Race Card.

Like you needed to guess.  The narrative is all who oppose the Democrats are racist.

Article in today's USA Today:

Brazile: GOP's 2012 game plan is to keep [black] voters home

Yes, I inserted the [black], because that is what the article ultimately claims.
Across America, Republican lawmakers have talked a big game about cutting budgets, but they also are seeking reductions to something much more fundamental: Americans' voting rights. From coast to coast, the GOP is engaged in what appears to be a coordinated, expensive effort to block voters from the polls.
The motivation is political — a cynical effort to restrict voting by traditionally Democratic-leaning Americans. In more than 30 states, GOP legislators are on the move, from a sweeping rewrite of Florida's election laws to new rules for photo identification in Ohio, Wisconsin, North Carolina and more than 20 other states.
Or ... they could just go out and get photo ids like the rest of us.  As one commenter put it, it's not like election day sneaks up on us.  We are responsible (hey, remember that word?) for making sure we know where to vote, when to vote, and what documentation we need to have available to us to prove that we are eligible to vote.  Everything else is just a smokescreen.  And besides.... Things I Know #34: If A is "political" and B is opposition to A, then B is also "political".

Using race as a smokescreen, the Democratic Party would like to keep voter fraud as easy as possible. It wrote the book on it in the first place. They don't want to lose this important tool to impose their agenda over the will of the people. This is why you find them opposing every measure that would make fraud harder, and pushing any measure that will make fraud easier.

Nobody's "rights" are being taken away.  We'd just like voters to demonstrate some responsibility.  They go hand in hand.

If you ask the question in reverse I think it helps honest people see our point...

Q:If NO photo ID is required to vote, is it possible that someone's rights could be taken away?

A:Yes, quite possibly millions more than would be inconvenienced to get a photo ID.

And as you stated, having to get a photo ID is not taking away rights.

Let me see if I have this right;

A.) requiring a photo ID to vote is racist

B.) believing a certain group of people can’t do the simplest chore of getting a photo ID is…being enlightened?

I guess driving (drivers license), traveling abroad (passport) and owning a pistol (gun permit)…being on welfare…are ultimate acts of racism?

BNTW, why can profiling be allowed (“a cynical effort to restrict voting by traditionally Democratic-leaning Americans”) but in certain situations like protecting the homeland…it’s wrong?
