I am dedicating this thread to you. Why? Because I felt your pain. Just for a moment.
You have continually said that gun ownership is a right and that you shouldn’t have to apply or register to bear arms because doing so was a right. (or something to that effect.)
I feel like I am having to dance and jump through hoops just to be able to vote. I think everyone here knows that I have a bad knee and that on any given day it could make me unable to go to the polls. I also have breathing issues but that is another story.
I like to vote by mail. It’s easier, it is legitimate, and it ensures that I will be able to vote in the event that the knee is acting up. So, tonight I thought to myself…I had better apply for that absentee ballot since March 1 is right around the corner.
Finally I find how to apply online. It is fairly well hidden. Then I started filling out the form. Nothing is intuitive. The form has changed since last time. Now I had to give a social security number and….tah daaaaaaaxahhhhhhh…..my DMV number so that my signature can be compared.
Why must I do all this just to be able to vote? Voting is a right. I shouldn’t have to go through all this bullshit. My knee hurts. I don’t feel like limping to the foyer to get my purse.
Where is the voter fraud? Show me where the voter fraud is and I might feel just a little bit better about going through all this malarky. Why would someone say they were me, risk going to prison just so they could cast a vote, in my name? How absurd.
Cargo, I feel about voting like you do about guns. It is much easier to own a gun than it is to vote. Tell me, when you buy a mail order gun, does DMV have to be involved to compare your signature? I seriously doubt it. If I am wrong, please tell me.
