How is asking for evidence that voter fraud is truly a problem an appeal to ignorance?
You really want to play that game?
It works like this: Under ordinary circumstances the government does not need any particular justification for passing a law. The marriage amendment in California is a great example in that the judge issued a bizarre ruling that the a law defining marriage as between a man and a woman essentially could not have any reasoning in support. That case very much went against the principles the courts use in deferring to statute.
You say that proof is needed (you used the word “need”) Why is that? Because the law cannot stand without your approval? Doubtful. The fact is that no proof is needed where courts recognize court precedent.
Even more to the point, your side keeps saying that voter ID laws address a problem that doesn’t exist. And how do you know it doesn’t exist? Because I’m not giving you the evidence you “need.” Isn’t that it? And that is exactly the fallacy of appeal to ignorance.
I’m not the one resisting the evidence problem, you are. Where is your evidence?
That’s not the evidence problem I described, is it? What evidence should I reasonably be able to present to you given the system we’ve got? What evidence would fraud leave behind that we can check? Address the question.
Even Fox News recognizes what is going on with these laws.
Ah, yes, that unhinged right-winger Juan Williams. How dare he turn against his conservative comrades and write ... an op-ed essentially following the spurious reasoning we’ve already seen ad infinitum in this thread. Excuse me while I yawn.
And courts have overturned more than the Texas Voter ID law. Similar laws in Florida and Ohio were overturned within the past 10 days.
Now would be a great time for you to produce evidence of court decisions against Florida and Ohio voter ID laws.
I think you’re probably confused over an issue of early voting (not voter ID) in Ohio, and confused over an issue of restriction sn organizations doing voter registration in Florida. But I’ll be delighted to inspect whatever evidence you produce.
