The author does not specifically mention VoterID laws (specificity is not his bag, baby), but he probably has those in mind. And if he's concerned about the integrity of the vote, he should favor VoterID laws.

If it's the poor that Mr. Reeder is refering to that he feels are impacted by voter ID , I believe they have to have ID to apply for welfare, SSI and many other gov't. handout programs.I would think an honest, accurate election would be paramount.

So what shall we do reeder give out $100 bills for every time you vote or should we give then $10 off their electric bill every time they turn a friend on to voting? Go back in to your shell.

Once again, no substance, just the same old rhetoric.

"When you have a public that perceives the governmental body as corrupt and unyielding you are not going to get many to vote."

I keep being told that term limits are not necessary because the American people set term limits through the voting process. Yet, Mr. Reeder is stating that people are so tired of the corruption in government that they aren't even voting. He's correct. Many feel, what's the difference, they're all corrupt anyway. You also have to look at the quality of the candidates that are running for office. I personally know many people that didn't want to see Romney or Obama in Office Romney didn't even bother to vote. Voter confidence will be restored when you clean up big government and offer them choices that they feel confident in making.

That should read I personally know many people that didn't want to see Romney or Obama in office so they didn't even bother to vote.

Based on the abysmal voter turnout lately, it seems we don't need any further encouragement for people not to vote.

GysgtUSMC - agreed. I'm sick of it, too. I make sure to vote in the local elections, but as far as the nation wide stuff? I really don't want to be bothered any longer. It's like once Congress is seated, they're on their own, doing what they want to do (or whoever is paying the most lobbying money wants), and not what's best for us. It's just like this whole health care deal. They write the law, pass the bill, etc. yet they are exempt from it! I'd feel a whole lot better about things like that if Congress was actually subjected to its own rules.

Just 6 percent of voters give Congress a positive job rating, according to polling released Wednesday. You think people aren't fed up government? And this is both Democrats and Republicans. Is the answer to just turn your head and not vote? No, but it's really hard to get people motivated in their government when that have no confidence or respect for it.

You should know Sham. With your CONSTANT references to these sources and everything they say, it is apparent that you spend your days and nights listening/watching/reading them. How sad you are!

They WERE given those choices. "Unfortunately" (for them)...Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain & Loopy Bachmann "flamed-out".

I am happy that many people do not vote as they are totally uninformed.

There is massive fraud in our elections, just like in anything gov't controlled...including the military.

To deny this is to deny reality.

Actually, the wonderment is in the fact that there are so many idiots who don't know that gridlock is caused by Wh ore house Harry Reid and the democrat controlled SENATE.

Reid and HIS Senate makes the whole congress look bad!
