Op Ed

The Seattle Times - Video-game industry not to blame for gun violence.
Just like any other form of entertainment, there are a vast number of video-game choices. Donít throw the whole industry under the bus because of a few games that happen to be violent. And even with those games, there is no proof that violent video games lead to violent acts.

Weasel wording is wording that's true, but leaves a false impression. Saying there was voting fraud in the 2 elections he won is true, but it implies that there wasn't voting fraud in other elections and that the voting fraud had the slightest jot of relevance.

The left is generally against it? Perhaps because it's totalitarian, more likely, as GOP officials have admitted, because it's designed to stop legitimate voters who have difficulty getting photo ID from voting - voters with low education and who don't speak English as a first language. Voters who overwhelmingly vote Democrat. That's voter fraud which could actually make a difference. Why haven't they been made accountable?

Edit: I see you've now moved the goal posts from photo ID to absentee ballots. Handy.

LOL you need a picture ID for a ton of day to day shit as is. Don't give me the flimsy it's "too hard to get one" excuse. That's the biggest bowl of bullshit. If you can't make the effort to stand in line at the DMV for an hour or less, then you don't fucking deserve the right to vote.

Then why did the Republicans want it for this exact reason?

Dunno, though really having voter ID wouldn't hurt the GOP anyway just the democrats and their "low information voters"

Personally I think it just makes logical sense to have to begin with regardless of party affiliation. I'd like to feel comfort in knowing a president is elected without cheating be it a dem or a repub, or at the very least make it harder to do what that Ohio lady did. Because you know it's not just her I'm sure.
