Showing ID to vote is bad?

--posted by Tony Garcia on 8/26/2005

It seems that proving who you are in order to vote is somehow racist.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department on Friday approved a controversial Georgia law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, and opponents immediately vowed to challenge the measure in federal court.
The Republican-backed measure sparked racial tension during the state's legislative session last spring. Most of Georgia's black lawmakers walked out at the state Capitol when it was approved.

Democrats had argued the idea was a political move by the GOP to depress voting among minorities, the elderly and the poor - all traditional bases for Democrats.

That is the most insipid thing I have heard since Barbara Streisand opened her mouth last.

The truth is very simple in this story. The Democrats have made it regular practice to engage in voter fraud. The past election was the latest example of how engrained into the left's strategy voter fraud and voter registration fraud is. Any effort to end fraud is fought with the only tactic that makes the weak-spined Republicans back off: charge racism.

This Georgia measure is the right thing to do. They lie when the opposition says that showing ID is somehow going to affect minorities, the elderly and the poor. The reality is that forcing people to show their ID to vote will only depress the ability for the Democrats, MoveOn.org, ACORN, the AFL-CIO and the NAACP to cheat in elections. (Those were the groups cited throughout this report as engaging in election intimidation, fraud and cheating.)

Kudos to the judiciary for approving this law.

Just how out of touch is the left?
"The decision to clear the measure now gives Georgia the most draconian voter identification requirement in the nation," said Daniel Levitas of the American Civil Liberties Union's Voting Rights Project in Atlanta.

Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., a veteran of the civil rights movement, said, "It is unbelievable, it is unreal the Department of Justice - an agency who is supposed to protect the American public by enforcing the Voting Rights Act of 1965 - is now involved in attempts to weaken the act.

There you go...pretty out of touch. Showing ID in their world is draconian. These people have lost all touch with reasonability. No wonder there is so much rancor in politics nowadays.
