I would disagree, by saying that I do not believe the intent of the voter ID laws are to discriminate against minorities.
Stop and frisk basically spelled it out.
how did it "spell it out"?
e: i would be in favor of voter id if in-person voter fraud actually happened at a level that could sway elections. the risk isn't worth the reward. in-person voter fraud is a non-existent problem. the question is, why are we addressing non-existent problems with government intervention? this type of legislation shouldn't be popular with anyone to the right or left. the right because it's a pointless expansion of big gubmint, and the left because it disproportionately affects minorities. so why are there people out there who support it? do they stand to gain? when republicans continue to lose elections due to shifting demographics, what will they blame? there's no upside here
