The left is a twisted, sick , convoluted amalgamation of mental illness and failure. The standards change faster than the direction of the wind, and they keep tying themselves into logical knots. Here are three examples…
“With such a strong bloc of these young people voting Democratic [in presidential elections], Republican leaders in some key swing states are looking to even the playing field coming up in 2012,” MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts insisted as he introduced Heather Smith of Rock the Vote (RTV) in a segment devoted to that group’s fears about “voter suppression” — see RTV screen capture below the page break — in states such as New Hampshire, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Missouri.
Those are four states where Republicans control both houses of the state legislature and are pushing reform laws aimed at voter ID requirements, tightening up residency requirements that largely impact college kids, and/or repealing last-minute voter registration at the polls.
We’ve covered that voter fraud is a huge issue. It’s been proven time and time again. Here are some links…
For example, a form letter Rock the Vote urges Wisconsin residents to send their state legislators laments that:
According to a University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee study, 36 percent of young people, including more than 70 percent of African-Americans ages 18 to 24, do not have a driver’s license. An estimated 23 percent of people ages 65 and older do not have a Wisconsin driver’s license or other photo ID. Under this bill, student IDs, even those issued by a state university, wouldn’t be accepted at the polls. Voting is a fundamental, constitutional right that shouldn’t be subject to one’s ability to get to the DMV or pay for a passport…
Yet under the state Senate bill that RTV opposes that would require voter ID, there are provisions for those who cannot afford a state-issued ID. From the bill’s plain-English “Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau” (emphases mine):
The bill also permits an elector who is eligible to obtain a Wisconsin identification card to obtain the card from DOT free of charge, if the elector specifically requests not to be charged.
So, ID’s at the polls are bad, very, very, bad. That, and Rock the Vote is lying about the legislation…all to make sure that people can vote early and often.
However, this is the same left that supported the National ID, and also propose a universal ID for internet use. So, to do much of anything, like buy some stuff on Amazon, or comment on a blog, you’d need some sort of verifiable ID, but to vote in an election-one of our most sacred rights in our “democracy?” Not so much.
Then, think about the TSA. If you want to fly, not only do you need ID, but you also have to have some questionable character fondle your gonads! But having some way to verify identity to protect our “democracy?” Not so much.
Given how much the leftists love to invoke our “democracy,” you’d think that they would want to protect it, and make it at least half as secure as flying, right?
