This week I went to the bank. I had to show my ID to cash a check, in a bank where they have known my face for years. Then I had to go renew my carry permit. I had to show my ID. Then I went to a hardware story and when I used my credit card, I had to show my ID. From there I went to a computer store and again, to use my credit card, I had to show my ID.
Now, what is most important thing that you have to do if you wish to participate in the election of people to represent you in government? You have to vote. And here in Georgia, in order to vote, you have to show your ID.
Please tell me what legal purpose it serves for some states to allow people to vote, without showing an ID? There is only one reason for that and the reason is crooked politics and nothing else. In the last presidential election we had states where more people voted than were living in that state. We had some precincts where the voting was 110 percent of the precinct’s population. There were some precincts where Romney did not receive ONE vote, a mathematical impossibility. Those instances were in places where anyone can waltz right in and cast a vote for the President of the United States of America, the leader of the free world – without showing an ID.
Maybe there are some, but I don’t know of any, Republicans who are for voting without identification. But I do know that Democrats howl about how unfair it is to make poor people have to show an ID to vote. That alone should tell you something about the two political parties in our country. And in those “no ID” voting states there are free rides to the polls, and a little “something” to the voters for their time and trouble. In one state, a woman proudly bragged that she voted three times for Barack Obama.
Whoever is the next president, one of the first things he or she should do is present to Congress an amendment to require adequate identification from anyone attempting to vote in every state in America. We want everyone to vote. We just don’t want dead people and multiple voters at the polls.
