  •  None of those are const'l rights (8+ / 0-)

    And the Commonwealth hasn't been helping residents get them, esp. not in this rushed a timeframe.

    Moreover, if I want to get Sudafed, or on a plane, it's not necessary that the name on the ID substantially conform with the name under which I registered to vote.

    •  Also, nobody is using their vote ... (3+ / 0-)

      ... to manufacture meth, hijack an airplane or commit medicare fraud.

      Those all represent important governmental interests. Stopping voter fraud -- which doesn't exist according to Pennsylvania -- is by definition not an important governmental interest.

      It's like requiring everyone in Pennsylvania to take and pay for Judo lessons because. Bigfoot. Or something. But mostly Bigfoot.  

      On another note, when do Democrats start sending out the mass-FOIA requests to state legislatures, state attorneys general, state governors and the United States House of Representatives to find out how much "Gubmint money" and time have been spent on voter suppression efforts, restrictions on abortion and votes to repeal ObamaCare?

      Let's drown the liars in their lies and their hypocrisies. I'd join this fight if anyone knew where to get something like that started.

      I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.
