TO THE EDITOR: Dear Fellow Citizens, there’s a segment of the population in America, who like some in Russia, Iran and Venezuela, have no interest in integrity on election day.
In other countries, they call them “the ruling class” or the “regime,” here we call them “unions” or “democrats.”
The claim is that they don’t want anyone “disenfranchised” so they fight voter ID. Yet from writing checks to getting on an airplane, a picture ID is required. To drive a car requires a picture ID, why not to vote as well?
I just looked on the WWW for instructions to get an EBT card—it said you need your paystub, Social Security card and photo ID so they know you are who you say you are. In our Democratic Republic, isn’t voting worthy of the same degree of certainty?
Truth be told, we know why they oppose voter ID. It has nothing to do with disenfranchising the poor and everything to do with taking the vote away from dead friends and relatives, illegal aliens, undocumented workers and/or people who enjoy voting so much they want to cast multiple ballots in a single contest.
I hear the claims “There isn’t a single instance of voter fraud, I defy you to prove that.” Granted, it’s difficult to prove, once the person votes they simply walk away because there was no ID check.
Truthfully, pretending it doesn’t happen is silly. It reminds me of the cartoon character Bart Simpson who proclaims his innocence with “I didn’t do it. Nobody saw me do it, you can’t prove a thing.”
What’s wrong with guaranteeing voting integrity? That’s easy; it makes elections hard to steal.
Crooks want to be the only ones concealing their weapons and unions want to be the judge of what constitutes a fair election.
