working as election judges who are only concerned with turnout, no need to prove your citizenship when you vote, 50,000 college students who aren't from here but are voting here anyway and 90,000 illegal aliens who want something from our government, you have a system ripe for fraud.

We need the system they have in Iraq, believe it or not. You have to vote in person, show proof of residency and citizenship when you vote, and then you dip your thumb into a jar of blue ink to ensure...

the people who would oppose you the most would be southern democrats. Those districts and others like them around the country were established to ensure that black people had representation in congress.
