    Mandela obviously hated blacks and didn't want them to participate in elections.
    Shows how our political class "creates" obstacles in the USA in lieu of looking for solutions.

    I think that is the only conclusion we can draw here.

    Why do people struggle so mightily with the concept of "irony?"

    Cue Dave continuing to not understand the concept of not being an ideological slave to a political party.

    Perhaps... But posted BEFORE I read your post.

    For claiming NOT to be a liberal, you sure do have that liberal nuance down to a science. You really are very good at it.

    I don't see the irony. Who's against needing ID to register to vote? Isnt the debate about restricting the acceptable forms of ID at the polling place?

    I'm sure you did ;)

    I have to be honest here: I really don't think you understand what "nuance" means, either.

    Really?

    Read Mandela's shirt again, paying close attention to the placement of the periods.

    If that's not good enough, you can review the FAQs for voting in South Africa, where you need an approved ID at the polling place: http://www.elections.org.za/content/for-voters/FAQ-For-Voters/

    LOL. So this has become a punctuation argument? You need "approved" ID here too. As I said, the debate seems to be about what constitutes acceptable ID. The voter ID laws essentially restrict the acceptable forms of ID.

    The other fallacy at play here is that people who encourage registering to vote or voting will of course encourage getting an ID if that is a requirement for one or the other. That doesnt neccesarily put them in favor of strict voter ID laws now does it?

    Mandela spent his entire life fighting against voter identification cards, in case anyone was looking for the irony.
