For years now Democrat leaders have fought efforts to beef up voter ID laws tooth and nail. Last week President Obama stepped up to the podium and with a straight face declared:
“The stark, simple truth is this: The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told a meeting of the National Action Network, a group founded by civil rights leader and MSNBC television anchor Reverend Al Sharpton.
“Across the country, Republicans have led efforts to pass laws making it harder, not easier, for people to vote,” he said.
Translation: “If you think voters should be expected to identify themselves at the polling place, you are a RACIST.”
That’s not the “stark, simple truth.” It’s the biggest lie ever. A naked, ugly, partisan lie. Requiring voters to prove they are who they say they are has nothing whatsoever to do with racism. It is merely a simple and effective tool used all over the world to ensure the integrity of elections.
Democrat leaders continue to play that tired, old race card against Republicans – the only strategy they have left in the face of 78% public approval for voter ID laws. And the Lame Stream Media shamelessly continues to support the big lie.
It’s such an obvious lie that it frightens me to think that the Democrats even dare to say it. Minorities (legal American citizens of color) are no less capable of showing their identification than anyone else. And they should be furious at the President, the Democrat leadership, and the media for calling them that stupid and helpless.
Everybody knows there can only be one reason for anybody to disapprove of validating each voter: the desire to cheat.
There is no evidence that anybody would be prevented from legitimately voting because they do not have identification. I challenge the media and the Democrats to come up with 100 eligible voters – legal citizens of the United States – who have no form of identification or no means to get one. Show them! Put them in front of the TV cameras! I challenge you!
They do not exist. If there actually were Americans who are so disengaged from ordinary daily life that they have no identification, the Democrats would be falling all over themselves to get them enrolled in social programs. For which they would need identification, of course.
So there is the lie. And now here is the truth. Only one person could be opposed to a common-sense law: the person who wants to break that law. Banks have security systems to prevent theft. Only bank robbers would be in favor of eliminating that security.
The Democrat leaders have perfected many methods of voter fraud in recent years. Last week DEMOCRAT spokesperson Al Sharpton, at a rally for “voters rights”, hugged DEMOCRAT Melowese Richardson, a poll worker who admitted – and was convicted for – voting for DEMOCRAT Barack Obama five times in the 2012 election. It is but one small example of a huge and accelerating problem.
Thank God only 22% of Americans are that crooked. That would indicate at least half of all Democrats support voter ID. The other Democrats persist with the biggest lie EVER.
