An Aug. 1 letter (“ID laws no big hurdle for responsible voters,” by Michial Kane) asks: “Why is acquiring a voter ID here such an insurmountable barrier? It sounds like another agenda is at work here.” That’s certainly true. Democrats are always the ones opposed to voter ID laws. For a Democrat to come out and support voter ID laws would be political heresy. That’s simply because many Democrats want all the illegal immigrants here receiving taxpayer assistance to vote for Democrats. That’s why Obama refuses to enforce immigration laws. I think he wants to continue the flood of illegal immigrants crossing our border, give them welfare and expect their vote for Democrats. This is called tax-supported vote buying.
Democrats believe strongly in resurrection because dead voters in Chicago rise out of their graves every election and vote Democrat. To require a picture ID would lessen the vote total for Democrats, pure and simple.
To cash a check, or buy alcohol or tobacco, or enter a casino or bar, one must show picture ID if requested. No problem there, unless you want to cheat. Let’s keep our ears open when voter ID laws are suggested and listen to who opposes them.
