No bogus claims, voter fraud IS rampant with the use of `dead registered voters` which, if you dont have an id, can walk up, claim to be one, and vote.. ILLEGALLY. Which for some reason is okay? really? and why is it some scheme from the GOP? ROFL to prevent "poor people" from voting? They have to have ID to get all of their "entitlements" Foodstamps require ID, SSN requires ID, TANF/Welfare/SNAP requires ID, booze requires ID, driving requires ID. But requiring folks to have ID to vote is "discriminatory"? LOLOL yeah.. okay.

I`m going to Paris for vacation next year!

P.S. Dead people still listed as registered in Chicago does NOT mean the votes were actually cast in their name. It is NOT evidence of voter fraud, just sloppy record-keeping which is easily fixed. Also, many bogus GOP claims of dead people voting turn out to be people who died AFTER they voted. Most democratic countries have a centralized method for maintaining voter registration and it works much better than ours. THAT`S what we should be looking at, NOT making it harder for people to legitimately vote. We all know the real reason the GOP is pushing for that. I don`t know why voter ID requirements would prevent someone determined to commit voter fraud when it doesn`t prevent underaged kids getting into clubs and drinking. Making fake IDs isn`t that hard. How many people getting together and committing voter fraud would you have to have in an election to make a difference in the results anyway? It`s way easier to just gerrymander di

The reason you can marry a dead person is so you can still claim some legal rights (the name of the father and so forth).

Been to France, loved it! <3

Apparently my friends all assumed the French were really rude and uptight, but everyone I came in contact with was very polite (except the creepy vendors trying to sell knock off handbags, haha).

In Chicago, the dead vote multiple times in elections, so... Why not allow them to marry? Anything else would be hindering the rights of decomp-challenged Americans.
