Investigation: Just Who Is Behind Voter ID?
By Liz Dorland. CREATED Feb 24, 2012
Our Sources:Theguardian US News, Liz Dorland , ALEC, Propublica,
Currently, every state in America requires voters to prove their identities before receiving a ballot; different states require different levels of proof. Legislators in states across the country are now promoting bills that would require voters to meet more stringent documentation requirements before voting—including presenting photo identification at the polls on Election Day in order to cast a ballot.
There are firm supporters of these bills, who believe that is the most effective way to decrease voter fraud.
There are those who believe that the costs incurred to implement the requirements would be exorbitant, and the principles that would be required under the Constitution would be too stringent.
Others say that it restricts many from being able to vote … mostly older, low-income, and minority citizens.
We perhaps should also consider how Obama’s Amnesty Bill will play into, not only more stringent photo ID requirements … but our overall voting process, in America.
Debbie Barth and her esteemed panel … Linda J Alexander, Bea Kunz, Sandy Estlow, and Eileen Brown … are talking the pros and the cons concerning more stringent voting requirements. Which ladies are voting “Yea or Nay?” Tune into the show and find out.
We invite you … no … we ENCOURAGE you to call in at 323-792-3071 (press the number 1 to talk to the host) and give us your opinion. Are you FOR or AGAINST photo IDs at the polls?

Your Opinion Matter
As alway's there;s great original music and commentary on Sax Therapy tonight! I'll talk about Voter ID, I think everyone should have a state ID to vote like they do for everything else in this country. Anybody can give a name and address, I think it's pretty ridiculous that an ID is not required! I'll discuss that and other hot topics! LOL!!! (Always wanted to say that!) and play some pretty good music! In my opinion! Freshen up your ears with Sax Therapy for your Mind, Body and Soul!!! Your station for smooth jazz and inspiration! Your prescription for smooth!
Last night a Republican caller said that the recent wave of Voter ID laws was not racist, and not designed to disenfrancise minority voters. But the facts are clear, no one can honestly debate that these laws are designed to combat voter fraud.
I will discuss this tonight.

On May 5, 2015, Alberta heads to the polls in the most anticipated "unnecessary" election in more than a generation. In 110 years, only four political parties have formed Government in the province. So far every party that has lost power has virtually disappeared from the map.
Considering this election was not necessary until 2016, Jim Prentice might be reconsidering a bit now. The PC's are in third place after 44 years in power. The New Democrats and the supposed dead Wildrose sit atop polling as they have from the outset of the campaign. There is a much different tone in the air this time around. No more coronations. It's looking like no more same old. General consensus is the higher the turnout, the bigger the loss for Prentice will be.
We will look at the leaders of the five parties involved. We will look at any major policy goals of each. We will look at the one and only televised debate performances and effects of same. And we will look at the gaffes, leaks, mistakes, feuds, attacks and punditry of the campaign. It is not being discussed openly in media but the results in Alberta could be very influential as Canada heads towards a federal election this October at the latest. Jim Prentice and Brian Jean are both former MP's in Harper's CPC with Prentice far and away having the better of Jean on that score. So what would it tell Canada if the NDP formed government in Alberta of all places, over Emperor's messengers?
Calls welcome, especially from Albertans! Join us for some insight into the seemingly ending conservative heartland.
