Democrats have gotten too clever for themselves in battling voter ID. Requiring people to show the same ID to vote that they must show to buy cigarettes or beer somehow disenfranchises them according to those great super-duper thinkers on the Left. It’s comical. And the
British Canadian business wire service, Reuters, bought into the liberal line so much that it inadvertently makes Barack Obama seem like one big crook.
From Reuters: “The new laws – many of which include measures requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls — could carve into Obama’s potential support in Florida, Ohio and a few other politically divided states likely to be crucial in the November 6 election, analysts say. The analysts note that massive registration drives in 2008 helped put millions of people aged 18 to 29 on voting rolls, and that age group — which makes up roughly one-quarter of the U.S. electorate — helped propel Obama to victory, voting 2-to-1 for him. Rock the Vote, a nationwide organization that mobilizes young voters, said the new laws would make it more difficult for the group to educate people on how to sign up to vote.”
Might I suggest that if you are too ignorant to figure out how to sign up to vote, you really are not intelligent enough to vote? Getting a driver’s license is much more difficult.
This shows that voter fraud really is rampant — so rampant that the reform has forced liberal front groups, such as the League of Women Voters, to quit. From the article: “The League of Women Voters also could sign up fewer voters this year, partly because it has joined Rock the Vote in suspending voter registration drives in Florida as the groups challenge that state’s new restrictions in court.”
ACORN, too, is gone.
Look, I don’t mind someone canceling my vote. I do mind someone doing so illegally. Campaign reform begins at the ballot box as far as I am concerned. This will not cost Obama the election. 4 years of incompetence will.
