Mike concentrates on the anti-gun stupidity of Sarah Silverman (I’ll also note the hypocrisy of the fact that she’s bitching about poor people being disenfranchised, AND suggesting they join in a fairly expensive hobby essentially just to piss off conservatives….yeah that makes PERFECT sense!)
Still I’d like to note glaring omission. You see “Progressives” love subsidies. They want EVERYTHING free, Healthcare, birth control, abortion, housing, jobs, or just welfare checks. Have you noticed in all this positive ID discussion that subsidies haven’t come up? Honestly I’m against government paying for much of anything, especially voter ID which is a fairly cheap commodity. How many poor people do you know who don’t have $20-$50 kicking around for non-essential expenses like going to see movies, cable TV, booze, or cigarettes? Yeah they could cancel cable for just one month and have enough in their wallet for a nice ID that’s valid for YEARS.
You see they don’t actually WANT voter ID because its not the money they’re concerned about, its the fact that positive ID would prevent easy cheats like having illegal aliens or prohibited felons, or people who are no longer alive from voting. Same with having somebody racking up a dozen registrations and voting multiple times!
They don’t want ID because they WANT to cheat!
