    The only people that would have trouble getting an ID are the poor. Minority communities tend to be poorer, and who do minorities tend to vote for?

    So if they can't buy and ID, how do they purchase food or see a doctor? Do these people have a TV as well? If they're that poor, certainly they can't afford to watch TV or maybe even afford soap.

    Republican politicians are well aware of this, and many of them have let it slip on record that instituting voter ID laws will guarantee Republican victories.

    Like the way Obama used the IRS to take out the heaviest Republican donors out of the 2012 election?

    Voter fraud has never been a significant problem. The type that exists with any significance (absentee ballot fraud) wouldn't be prevented by IDs. Impersonation and voting by illegal immigrants is extremely rare (something like 31 in 1 billion votes).

    So, if we all have IDs in conjunction with our drivers license, that would be the best option, I think honest people would be for it hands down.

    So you have a fix that doesn't even address the non-existent problem it claims to address that only disenfranchises a very specific type of voter. The motivation of the Republican politicians couldn't be more obvious, especially when you consider the fact that Republicans pretty much have to use tactics like redrawing district lines and suppressing votes to win. Because the numbers show that if everyone in the country voted, progressives win.

    What hogwash, the GOP are trying to siphon EVER single vote they can get. Waste not, want not.

    The soft bigotry of low expectations comes to the rescue once again.

    What's a soft bigot? Would that include the Democratic Party or Duke or Byrd as well? These people were soft spoken as well.

    Trump is incredibly reviled throughout Mexico, so this couild help Nieto. Trump blustering to Nieto may shore up his....flagging support from white nationalist...?

    Judging from the recent polls, the gap is narrowing...Uh-oh!

    We both know the truth. You just don't want to admit it because it disproves your smear campaign against Hillary.

    Has nothing to do with me, even my kids can see a photo of both Duke and Byrd in the same bedsheets and would determine them to be in the same group. We have 2 racist men, one deceased, the other alive. One Democrat and congressman and the other a failed run Republican Louisiana State House, both men in politics and both racists. Byrd said, he wasn't, Duke said, he wasn't either, he's a White separatist. Both looney.

    Nice try though. Your smear campaign only needed to besmirch the reputation of an honorable man who died fighting for civil rights. Too bad for you the rest of us live in reality.

    Ok, so both former KKK men are honorable, one a Dem and the other a former Repub. I got it!

    And so much for your complaints about 'fairness'. If you want fairness, you should first be fair.

    I said, both men were part of the same racist organization that has a long history of killing Blacks and later both men went into politics, one conservative and the other a Democrat. I played it out, fair and square, what more can I do?

    You do understand that he is just meeting with the Mexican President (who extended his desire to meet with all of the potential U.S. presidential candidates several months ago). The meeting will not be broadcast on Mexican TV. Trump will not be making any speeches, holding any fundraisers, kissing any babies, or mingling with the general public in Mexico, so I am not sure where you are getting the idea that maybe the Mexicans "DO" want to hear what he has to say.

    Doesn't have to, the main thing is, that there is a meeting and establishing some sort of rapport. Kudos.

    Then stop beating around the bush and say poor people shouldn't be allowed to vote. The voter fraud angle is nonsense.

    It's not about economics, it's about Democrat defiance and unwillingness to admit that they are worried more about not being able to allow illegals to vote.

    Uhh... everything? Haven't you been paying attention? Voter ID laws prevent a certain sector of the population from voting.

    That's complete hogwash, I know a lot of poor people that voted over the years, it was never, ever an issue, until illegals were brought into the conversation, then it morphed into something racist about having one.

    They're only pushed by conservatives to reduce the number of Democratic votes. They certainly don't solve the "problem" of voter fraud.

    So if that's true, the best way is to meet n the middle. Both parties talk int out, Republicans in now way shape or form, ever stop anyone from voting and illegals cannot vote, until they are legal, both sides, No exceptions.

    Yes, there are people that poor and that go through life without IDs. You must be very privileged if you can't even imagine that people like that exist.

    Then under No circumstances whatsoever should these people be allowed to vote, NO exceptions. If you are too poor, but still can drive, the police wouldn't allow that either, it's simply against the law.

    Liberals are for a creating a situation that works for everybody. A lot of people tend to like that.

    Ahhh, so that's why most Black neighborhoods and Latino neighborhoods are stricken with so much poverty, because Democrats have been doing a wonderful job over the last 50 years.

    Conservatives are for keeping the rich rich. Only the 1% and the people they managed to fool like that.

    Hmmmm....nowadays,Che mega rich are the spoiled millanials tech geeks from Yahoo, Apple, Amazon etc.,that have pockets of cash, they are liberal, Athiest a(often) as well as selfish. These are the new 1% And now you have the GOP fighting for the middle class, the roles have reversed.

    That's why conservatives have to suppress votes, redraw district lines, and generally use all the dirty tactics they can get away with. You can disagree, but that doesn't change the truth.

    What does that have to do with everyone needing an ID to vote? Talk about dirty....

    Empathy isn't normally a conservative trait,

    I see, liberal empathy is more like, here's some money, now leave me alone and deal with your problems. Pretty much sums up what Blacks have been dealing with when it comes to the Democratic party.

    but just try imagining yourself in someone else's shoes. You don't live in the city, you're poor, you work your butt off everyday, you depend on other people for rides because you don't have a car, and you live miles away from any voting registration center. Those are the people types of people that would be affected, and plenty of them are legal.

    Has nothing to do with having an ID or are these people too poor to have ANY kind of ID to prove who they are, even if they are legal? What happens if they have to go to the hospital? How do we know what they are allergic against or what blood type they have? You need an ID and there's no way around that. Liberals could care less who's voting or who comes into the country, just as long as they can get votes, it's all good

    But again, the whole issue is based on a non-existent problem. I apologize if I missed any examples you guys might have mentioned, but I've never heard of evidence for voter fraud. Most people don't bother to vote for themselves, let alone for someone else. There are plenty of examples of voter suppression though, most of them led by conservatives. Voter IDs are obviously just another example.

    Well, I disagree and it seems like Democrats are always getting their buns tied in a knot talking about this. It's hilarious. If we go by that logic, then I submit to you, we do aways will ALL IDs! What the heck do we need them at all for? Let people do as they please, let illegals vote whenever and wherever they like, that seems to be the best option for Dems and libs. Just do whatever makes you feel good and screw the law.

    Since you are so big on being 'fair', please also report his activities in regards to the KKK after that, and what he did in the 70 years after quitting the KKK?

    That is not the point, the point is both were in the KKK an organization that was designed to scare and intimidate Blacks and so many of them died under this racist organization that Byrd and Duke were and I could care less if the left wholeheartedly embrace Byrd, the fact is both were Klansmen and both racists, just because both traded in their sheets doesn't make them NOT racists. Again, I'm not buying it. Both men are dirt.

    This is the 3rd time in a week that you've been caught plagiarizing....

    That's ok, it doesn't take a brain scientist to look up Byrd's bio. But nice try.

    But it doesn't solve anything... It would only prevent the poor (often minorities) from voting, which is obviously the intention of those pushing for it.

    How would it prevent them from voting if they're "legal" citizens? Please, I'd really love to hear the spin on this one. Lol And every conservative wants every legal US citizen to vote.

    So you want to add to the waste? Voter IDs is a solution to a problem that doesn't exist. There is zero evidence of voter fraud being an actual thing. The problem isn't too many people voting, it's too few. A better way to spend that money would be to increase the number of voting stations. But the establishment in both parties benefit from less people voting.

    Ok, so if there isn't a problem and and both sides can't agree, the best way to resolve this is to push for every US voter to register and carry voter IDs. Problem solved.

    And it's not just voter IDs... They are passing restrictions on early voting, early registration, closing polling places, reducing voter drives, removing programs for teenagers in schools, etc. The voter ID laws are just a fraction of the assault Republicans are trying to put on voting.

    As opposed to having did people vote, illegals vote, having groups like the black panther party intimidate people at the building blocks. So if there is absolutely nothing that the Liberals and the Democrats have to hide, then everybody should have an ID to vote, you have a drivers license, usually you need a form of ID to purchase an item and use a credit card no difference here, that is if you don't have anything to hide.

    How do you expect people to have a rational conversation with you if you can't even stay on topic? Obama never said, "Hey, let's give all Americans better access to healthcare," then came back a few months later and said, "Never mind."

    That's not the issue, the issue was he flip-flopped, that's it.

    But that's precisely what Trump is doing now. Now, yes, in the world we live in, all politicians have flip-flopped at one time or another in their careers, even Hillary. But Trump's wavering on wall is The Wall™ is borderline fraud. The Wall™ is FOUNDATION of his candidacy. He used The Wall™ shamelessly to elicit the kind of pigheaded, xenophobic hootin' and hollerin' that one might expect from an uneducated, white male demographic.

    So white people are dumb if they don't have a college degree, not worthy to vote and and educated liberal minorities that have a degree are more worthy of casting a vote? Uh...so what are you trying to say here? When liberals use the race card to use It drive fear and anxiety, that's ok?

    And he used The Wall™ again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again to "fire up" his base and give him enough populist feel-good momentum in the primaries to overwhelm more moderate GOP candidates. All of that came crasing to a halt when it became abundantly clear that his message only resonated with a minority of voters made up largely of pigheaded, xenophobic, hootin' and hollerin', uneducated, white males.

    Sorry, but both sides play this game

    He flipped his stance on The Wall™ to try an win over moderate GOP voters. Then when his base cried foul, he flopped back to his original assertion. When people called him on it, he said, "I'm thinking about it. Let me get back to you later this week." THAT'S flip-flopping and you know it. It's also an obnoxious manipulation of his base.

    And it's no different than what the liberals to constantly and consistently in going on this make-believe and bogus lie that there is no such thing as a voter fraud is a complete ludicrous statement.

    Voter fraud is a myth that Republicans cling on to so they can pass racist laws. The end.

    If that were true, libs wouldn't object to people having voter ID cards.

    Bass4Funk is absolutely positive that people in Orange County Cal are deadset against illegal immigrants. Nope. A lot of property owners are hispanic and they are doing really well.

    That has absolutely nothing to do with the status of illegal immigrants. Of course the majority of people are not happy with the border situation and have been for many, many years.

    They don't want a blanket crackdown or profiling to cramp their style. Northern Cal is in love with illegals for agriculture. The Bay Area is so far beyond caring. Who is left? A bunch of white people living in Anaheim, Tustin, and Newport Beach, I guess. Romney has a home in Newport. I wonder who does his garden and pool.

    And once again, we have to invoke race again, this is not a Black and White issue, there are many Hispanic Americans that want the border shut. Hispanics are not a monolithic group.

    Aside from the Mexican immigration thing are the H1B visas, which nobody seems to care about. Too bad that is not more of an issue, but as long as big big money in Sili Valley wants them, they will get them.

    Yeah, about that.....

    There may be lit at the end of the tunnel.

    And then there is "Muslim immigration" which will require a whole lot of gymnastics to limit while not angering the EU, and the whole mideast. Trump is not ready to jump into that arena by a longshot.

    I think he is, probably why so many libs are nervous, because everyone knows what a serious issue this is for him.

    Glad she left him. The needs serious help. Beautiful woman, he had more than enough chances to get his stuff together, he didn't, his list, she can find much better. The guy needs to check himself in a mental clinic or sex anonymous and straighten out his life, do that at least he can still see his son and be part of his life.

    Meanwhile, back in the land of the rational, I beg to differ regarding some posters' efforts to characterize flip-flopping as being the same as changing one's mind. I believe the two are markedly different things. Changing one's mind implies that one has put thought into the decision by weighing the pros and cons and coming to an educated conclusion. Also, changing one's mind usually is supported with a defense of that change, an explanation, if you will, of why one made the change in the first place, supported by facts and evidence and a logical presentation of how the facts and evidence factored into the change of heart.

    Where I come from in politics we call that an excuse. Both are flip floppers when it comes to many of the issues.

    E.g., Trump's flip-flopping on gun control and abortion.

    Clinton and Obama changed their minds on the wall near San Diego because they processed the arguments made against it and agreed that there were better solutions.

    Nah, they flipped, just like they did when it came to Same sex marriage, both opposed it original and both changed. It was a political ploy playing to their base, sorry, but flip flopping isn't a unique phenomenon to conservatives only.

    Trump, on the other hand, is currently flip-flopping on the "Build That Wall"™ cornerstone of his entire campaign, not because he recognized the overwhelming economic, cultural, and diplomatic costs of such a inane project, but rather because he's losing this race, and he's losing "bigly." The deepest consideration Trump has applied to The Wall is what the political fallout will undoubtedly be if he sticks with it. In short, he flip-flopped for political survival.

    Obama said, his healthcare would keep premiums low and you could keep your doctor. Aetna recently announced they were leaving CA. Thousands of people can't pay their premiums, many had to cancel them, so much for affordability.

    It's quite the pickle he's put himself into, isn't it? The very populist position he used to force other GOP candidates off the field will be the very same one that forces him to either A) stick to his guns and in all likelihood lose the election, to B) reveal to his supporters that he was a conniving liar throughout the primaries and in all likelihood lose the election.

    Do you think Hillary will come clean after that slip, lie, flip flop or whatever you want to call it, when she said that she wants to raise taxes on the middle class? I cannot wait for the debates! They're going to be epic!

    I think so too.

    You should know that's not how it works. Trump's very frequent outbursts of trash, stupid s###, backtracking on previously wild statements, personal insults and general inanity will hog the headlines.

    It shouldn't, that is, if you are a fair and honest journalist. Criticize Trump, fine! But don't give Hillary a pass, anything else is just a lame excuse.

    If he could learn to keep his mouth shut ( what comes out isn't usually practical stuff ), he wouldn't be all over the media and let's be honest, he loves a headline.

    True and if the media would do its job and cover THE NEWSPAPER and not just Trump we could really see how bad this thing is with Hillary and her blasted mails and questionable foundation.

    Of course he was.

    In the early 1940s, Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to create a new chapter of the Ku Klux Klan in Sophia, West Virginia.

    According to Byrd, a Klan official told him, "You have a talent for leadership, Bob ... The country needs young men like you in the leadership of the nation." Byrd later recalled, "Suddenly lights flashed in my mind! Someone important had recognized my abilities! I was only 23 or 24 years old, and the thought of a political career had never really hit me. But strike me that night, it did.Byrd became a recruiter and leader of his chapter. When it came time to elect the top officer (Exalted Cyclops) in the local Klan unit, Byrd won unanimously.

    Look, if you want to believe BYrd was sincere, fine, I'm not buying it. Once a Klansman, always a Klansman.
