So you really think these laws are about voter fraud? You cannot be that naive.

Quote:But one of Pennsylvania’s top Republican leaders may have tipped his hand this weekend when he suggested to a meeting of Republican officials that the purpose of voter ID laws is to help his party’s presidential nominee win. PoliticsPA’s Kelly Cernetich quoted state House Majority Leader Mike Turzai at the Republican State Committee meeting:

He mentioned the law among a laundry list of accomplishments made by the GOP-run legislature. “Pro-Second Amendment? The Castle Doctrine, it’s done. First pro-life legislation – abortion facility regulations – in 22 years, done. Voter ID, which is gonna allow Governor Romney to win the state of Pennsylvania, done.”


Guess what? The laws were thrown out by the courts and Mitt the Shitt did not win Pennsylvania in spite of all their efforts ro rig the game.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

Sadly true. It was a funny statement given the Republican party as it is today, not how it has been or could be without the religious wingnuts.

George Wills, the conservative columnist came out as an atheist not long ago. The response among the Christian conservatives wasn't good.

The bible thumpers in the comment section fired up their computer keyboards with lots of religious advice for ol' George.

Yes, that is the purpose and still largely the function of higher education. But the problem is that there are liberals who try to indoctrinate their students into the leftist religion.

I think it's pretty obvious that he's talking about Liberal Arts majors; making students turn into dirty leftist commie hippies.

I know what he's talking about. It's still the frightened raving of a drug-fueled madman. Frankly I wonder how someone with such apparent existential terror at the mere idea of differences of opinion manages to get through life.

So, do you think that a modern, industrial state can be operated with the government as it existed in 1840? Because that is essentially what these so-called libertarians want.

Missed this before... no, I don't take a libertarian position. The post you partially quoted went on to say that I don't deny the importance of the role of the government. I'm just saying that my first impulse is to look for ways to accomplish goals without government or with minimal involvement. If a bigger role is the best option then that's fine too.

I just found it hilarious that when the NAACP was in my area protesting voter ID they told protesters they had to show an ID to join in.

RE: Any Republican Atheists Here?
I was Republican for a long time. I eventually got tired of having to explain why my views on policy issues were not racist just because racists agreed with them. Like, ALL the time. Made me think.

Last straw was the way Team Bush knelt before the Bob Jones University set and slandered the hell out of John McCain in South Carolina during the 2000 primaries. Not saying I never VOTED Republican again, I did. But I changed my registration to No Party. No regrets.

Religion is proof that invisible men can obscure your vision.

That's the most hilarious thing I've heard in a while. Yeah they're all for students thinking for themselves as long as they are presented creationism as an alternative theory to evolution in A FUCKING SCIENCE CLASS!. Since you are only 17 and a Canuck I excuse your naivete.
