      If the people of these teabagger occupied states want to stand up for themselves and get these laws repealed, great.  If Obama charges in and gets them repealed, great.

      But if election day comes and the law still stands, anyone who can't vote because they couldnt' be bothered to go get an ID has only themselves to blame.

      If you prefer to tell everyone to be a sheep and not get their shit done, by my guest, but you won't like the results.

        How does a homeless person (who is still eligible to vote, btw, because Republicans haven't yet introduced that bill) get an ID?

        How about a college student that is working two jobs so he can pay for college without getting The Dreaded Student Loan He Can't Afford to Pay Back, and, thus, may not even know about changes in States like Wisconsin that disallow him from voting in his college town? Or get home to vote? Or fill out the paperwork to vote absentee at home?

        ....Perhaps you actually prefer that these people don't vote because you think s/he is homeless, tired, or stressed because God Has Frowned Upon Her Bad Choices, or He Surely Can't Know Who To Vote For, or most likely, Because She'll Vote Democrat.

        PS Teabaggers want these voter hurdle/suppression laws, so they wouldn't get them appealed. It's the teabagger-supported Republican legislatures who initiated and passed them.

        But thanks anyway for the convenient, ignorant, and glib right-wing talking point re "Self-Reliance" that has absolutely nothing to do with the realities of the world.
