Down-voter here. I dislike blaming anything on a single political party. Both parties are intertwined with private interests and any politician on either side could make this benefit them in some way. Also, simply commenting like stanky_bawls did without a solid explanation is really just as terrible as all of the top comments on Reddit. The only reason it is so heavily upvoted is because the majority of Voat is anti-liberal/democrat. The comment adds nothing to the OP's discussion and does not truly answer the question.

I would also like to point out that I do not affiliate myself with either political party and thus have no ulterior motive. Good enough explanation for you?

I can dig it and thanks! The topic wasn't about corruption of those on top. This is something that we as the people could implament. The whole "two party/corrupt system" seems like a cheap cop out on this. How can you say/get upset that Democrats don't oppose voter ID? I don't think he needed to back up his statement when it's clear to the majority of people that democrats will come unglued whenever this is brought up. Convenient or not the Democrats are currently against it.

I fully understand the point you were making, but it is still just a one-liner with no explanation. Given that this is ELI5 I think more should be given as the OP is clearly looking for factual answers. If this was askvoat or askvoat I wouldn't have downvoted.
