sense, gone the way of the Oldsmobile, clearly not so common any longer, when
the Democrats consistently suggest, en masse, that photo ID at the ballot box
is simply a tool by the GOP to “rig election rules to their advantage,”
according to William R. Groth’s October 29 LTTE.
a society we are required to produce photo ID before boarding an airplane, obtaining
a driver’s license, purchasing alcohol, renting/buying a home, cashing/writing
a check, opening a bank account, enrolling in college, picking up tickets at a
will call window, securing a library card, using a credit card in some places,
checking into a hotel or hospital, entering many government buildings, entering
a military base, and procuring a firearm – just to name several.
when in the defense and protection of one of our most sacred rights, to ensure
the sanctity of our precious vote, the Democrats take a laissez faire attitude
suggesting that the demand for photo ID is somehow racist or designed to
disenfranchise potential voters. Or worse when suggesting voter fraud is
minimal. One instance of voter fraud is too many in a civilized society.

using a government issued form of photo identification is to degrade the value
of the vote.
