The Bottom Line on Stronger Voter Laws
Monday, July 18, 2011 10:52 AM


Democrats who oppose improving ID laws when it comes to voting are attempting to prevent legal, hard working, wholesome, Americans from voting in elections.

Republicans are currently working on legislation that would toughen up the credentials needed in order to cast a vote in any election. Makes sense doesn't it? Identity theft is real, and so is fraud. But Democrats, like Marcia Fudge, don't like to use common sense. They like to make everything about race.

"Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) said that every state governed by a Republican is attempting to prevent the poor, minorities, seniors and students from voting by requiring individuals to present photo identification at the polls."

I don't know how making someone prove they are a US citizen is a burden, or an attempt to restrict who is voting, those who are legally eligible to vote that is.

I think it is in fact racist toward minorities to insinuate that they are unable to meet the standards required to vote. Are you saying that minorities are somehow incapable of getting an ID? Are you saying that seniors and students are not competent enough to get a valid ID?

That sounds bigoted to me!

When asked what they should be able to use, Jesse Jackson (the most non-racist person ever) said that they should be able to use a "utilities ID, a driver's license or a SSN" or in some instances a phone bill.

OK, so what's the difference in making someone bring a driver's license AND a birth certificate instead of just one. And a phone bill doesn't prove citizenship, it proves RESIDENCY.

Others who were at this press conference included:

"Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) and Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.)."

It should surprise you that these are some of the best and brightest that Congress has to offer. Why, Hank Johnson himself has to have a PHD in physics! He's the one who asked if all the people move to one side of an island, wouldn't the island tip over?

It doesn't have anything to do with the senior or student vote. It doesn't even really have to do with African American voters. Really they are worried about the illegal immigrant vote. That's the one they don't want to get rid of.
