Perhaps the idea of requiring identification from voters is worth a look. At present, you cant drive, fly commercially, cash a check, open a bank account and so on without a validly issued government I.D. And remember that there also is a legal requirement that voters be U.S. citizens. So if requiring a valid identification is discriminatory in some manner, then requiring an I.D. to board a plane also is a form of discrimination, as would be a number of other things.
Lets face it: The movement to get rid of voter identification is simply a movement to encourage voter fraud. Democrats want felons to vote because an overwhelming majority of them will vote Democratic. They want illegal immigrants to vote for the same reason. And they want loyal Democrats to vote more than once where they are able to do so. Where there is no voter security, voter-fraud abuses will increase.
So either through legal rulings or intimidation, Democrats want to disable states from protecting the integrity of the ballot box. It appears that Obamas politicized Department of Justice will be at the forefront of this effort to block voter-integrity laws that already are in place; liberal newspapers will support the idea because theyre, well, liberals who want to win elections, too.
The current spin is that there is only a small amount of voter fraud, so its not worth going after. Remember the successful voter-fraud prosecutions against ACORN, Obamas one-time employer? Remember Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire, whose margin of victory was less than the known margin of fraudulent voters? And also remember that the Democrat-controlled state Legislature refused to authorize a recount and investigation?
Its perfectly valid to ask for an I.D., so thats not the problem; the problem is why some people are actively trying to promote voter fraud in the United States and the liberal media is largely on the bandwagon.
