Showing a photo ID is racist? Really? Then our entire society is racist. Every department store, pharmacy, sports stadium, airport, and university across this nation must be run by a bunch of racists – because at some point in my life every one of them has required me to show a photo ID. The truth is, if you do not have a photo ID you cannot fully participate in our society. If you do not have a photo ID voting should be the least of your inconveniences - as you cannot even go to the pharmacy and pick up lifesaving medication – not even under Obamacare!
Some of you claim there are very few instances of voter fraud. Cases that have been successfully prosecuted I would agree. Lack of ID makes it difficult to discover who committed fraud. In the example given here I would be curious to know; what if Eric Holder walked in to vote 3 hours later? They would have checked the list for his name, saw it there, and given him a ballot. This idea that it would have been caught is a huge assumption. In past elections ACORN was observed bringing an entire busload of people from one poll to the next. As long as they all gave a name that was on the list – no voter fraud.
With how difficult it is to exist in this society without a photo ID, with 75%+ majorities in states across this country voting for photo ID requirements, and with even a vast majority of minorities supporting voter ID laws – why do democrats continue fighting it?
Some of you keep asking for proof of voter fraud, but since the American people overwhelmingly support voter ID laws, I think the burden should be on those claiming requiring photo ID is racist.
