Why Democrats Must Oppose Voter ID
From the Examiner.com: “Democrats Fighting Hard for Illegal Alien Vote — In December 2011, Eric Holder announced that the Department of Justice will begin investigating Texas and South Carolina over their recently enacted laws requiring voters to present a photo ID before casting their ballots. The laws were designed to reduce voter fraud … a problem in every election.” I’ll read that to you again: “In December 2011, [Attorney General] Eric Holder announced that the Department of Justice will begin investigating Texas and South Carolina over their recently enacted laws requiring voters to present a photo ID before casting their ballots.
“During a speech at the LBJ presidential library, Holder said: ‘In jurisdictions across the country — both overt and subtle forms of discrimination remain all too common.'” The old photo ID business. Can you think of anything you do in your life where you do not need a photo ID? You need a photo ID to cash a check. You need a photo ID to get on an airplane. You need a photo ID for everything. For the most mundane things in life, you need a photo ID. But yet, Eric Holder and his gang tell us that to require a photo ID when one votes is intimidation, and it is discrimination.
And it will cause people to hole up in their homes and not vote. When people say, “No, no, no. We’ll be glad to provide them a photo ID free if they just come down to city hall,” that’s a trick also to get people out of their homes. It’s the state using its awesome fist to discriminate and intimidate people who don’t have photo ID. Okay, all well and good. Let’s take it at face value. The Democrat Party is standing tall, standing strong for people who want to be able to vote but who can’t prove who they are. Now, by the same token, are these people who do not have photo IDs thus also not able to get on an airplane?
