  1. I’ve never understood the push back on voter ID. You cannot do anything without ID..open a bank account, buy liquor, get public assistance, SS and it is not hard to get ID in any state…it sounds like the left wants anyone to be able to vote..dead, felons, non residents etc. etc….

  2. A photo ID is required to buy cigarettes, be treated in the emergency room or doctor’s office, buy alcohol, rent or buy a place to live, enter a government building, open any banking or credit account, buy many prescription and non-prescription drugs, get vaccines, apply for food stamps, disability, Social Security or any other government program. Unless you live under a rock or in a cave, you already need a photo ID before you ever think about voting.

  3. Democrats have nothing to run on. No agenda, no vision for the future, nothing to make everybody’s lives better. All they want is more money for frivolous things. They are not bright enough to realize everybody’s tax will go up. And when they don’t get what they want they scream racism. This is getting more sickening by the day.

  4. She has stated she intends to “expand the electorate” and just look at who she is expanding it to. She is a very smart lady and judging the the results of our past senatorial elections she has a good formula. She says, paraphrasing, you are a victim, its not your fault, others/the government did it to you and they owe you. I like free stuff, who doesn’t? It is a lot easier to blame others for you situation than to look inward.

    Republicans have a hard sale, they are advocating for personal responsibility and freedoms. How do you make people understand the there is no free stuff and that you are responsible for you own life?
