Supporting Strict Voter ID Legislation in all Fifty States is a Democratic Duty


#1

Voter identification laws are enacted to safeguard the electoral process and preserve the sanctity of voting rights for all Americans. Don't believe the liberal hype.

Currently, there are thirty-four states with laws that require or request a form of identification from voters at the polls. There are seven states that have strict voter identification laws that require voters to produce specific types of government-issued photo identification prior to voting. If the required identification is not produced, no ballot will be cast. No exceptions are made.

Those against voter ID laws, like the American Civil Liberties Union, argue that low-income, racial and ethnic minorities, the elderly, and people with disabilities have difficulty obtaining ID, because they cannot afford or cannot obtain the underlying documents that are a prerequisite to obtaining a government-issued photo ID card.

This is a message that the ACLU and their friends in the media have perpetuated ad nauseum.

The only problem is, it isn't true. In fact, the only people who really seem to buy into this line of thinking are white liberals. African Americans feel otherwise:

In reality, the majority of Americans have at least one of the forms of identification that states with strict voter ID laws have determined to be acceptable for voting. In fact, what groups like the ACLU fail to mention is that in all fifty states of the United States of America an individual requires a valid government-issued form of photo identification to do the following:

  • Drive a car
  • Rent a car
  • Buy a car
  • Rent an apartment
  • Buy a house
  • Open a bank account
  • Write a check
  • Cash a check
  • Buy alcohol
  • Buy cigarettes
  • Apply for food stamps
  • Apply for Social Security
  • Apply for Medicaid
  • Buy a cell phone
  • Pick up a prescription

Even though the overwhelming majority of adult Americans have and use a government-issued photo ID on a daily basis, the Democratic Party has railed against voter ID laws for decades. According to the official party platform of the DNC:

The right to vote is fundamental — it is the right that protects and expands all other rights. That’s why the Democratic Party has continuously remained dedicated to making it easier and more convenient for Americans of all backgrounds to cast their ballot.

We adopted the boldest and most pro-voter platform in history — calling for expanding early voting and vote-by-mail, implementing universal automatic voter registration and same-day voter registration, ending partisan and racial gerrymandering, and making Election Day a national holiday.

We do this by supporting candidates for state secretary of state and state legislative seats who want to expand voting rights. And we do this by supporting efforts in all 50 states to ensure that every eligible citizen can register and vote, and that each vote is accurately counted.

That looks good on paper, right? The Democrats just want to make voting "easier" and "more convenient" for everyone! Kumbaya.

What the Democrats are actually saying is that they want to eliminate all forms of reasonable accountability associated with the electoral process and put in place mechanisms that make it impossible to accurately determine the veracity of the ballot. If this were to happen voter fraud would be rampant and the United States would be permanently controlled by Democrats.

Despite all of their bluster, Democrats have actually supported using photo IDs as a way to prevent unauthorized delegate voter participation at the Democratic National Convention in both 2012 and 2016.

During the 2016 Democratic National Convention, Donna Brazille, then Chair of the DNC, took the voter ID process one step further.

When voting for new DNC party officers, Brazile required the use of a signed paper ballot that could be compared against the name and signature of each voting delegate's government-issued photo ID. The voting and verification process that Brazile laid out actually went much further than any state that has implemented strict voter ID laws to date. No state requires a voter to sign their ballot or have their ballot cross-referenced against the signature on their identification. Electoral ballots in every state are always anonymous.

Clearly, the DNC believes that preserving the integrity of their own internal electoral process is so important that steps must be put in place to prevent even a single fraudulent vote from being cast.

If a secure voting process is good enough for elite Democrats, then surely the process of requiring a citizen to show a form of government-issued photo identification is good enough for the rest of us.

Don't wait until the next election cycle. Demand strict voter-ID laws in your state today. We all have to do our part in protecting the electoral process.

Well California just passed a law stating if you have a drivers license you CAN vote and illegals were issued drivers licenses there ! :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:


#3

If the Democrats didn’t have double standards they wouldn’t have any standards at all.


#4

I genuinely hope that one day blacks stop falling for all the race baiting crap. They keep adopting the victim mentality without realizing those that are posing as their saviors are the one taking advantage of them. Their communities have been driven further into poverty by Democrats who then try to offer them benefits in exchange for a vote. It’s the definition of an abusive relationship. If you treated your spouse this way, you’d probably get hauled off to jail.

The Horowitz video really says it all. The ID BS is and at least for the last 40 years has been a smoke screen. Progressives have no justification for not wanting clean voter registration rolls and verified identity to vote except that it doesn’t serve their purpose… And what on earth could that purpose be////


#6

It really does. What’s somewhat funny about it is that if conservatives spoke the same way about black people and their ability to obtain an ID or being able to use the internet - all hell would be breaking loose. There would be demonstrations, sit-ins, and posts all over social media showing black people holding their IDs making a closed fist with some clever hashtag campaign. The ACLU would line up right behind them and demand an apology. Al Sharpton would demand reparations. But when white liberals say it…nothing happens.

Having strict voter ID is a no-brainer. It’s something that should have happened a long time ago but state legislators can’t resist the influx of big Dem donor money.


#8

The issues center on “Low Income and Minorities”. If you can get a state issued ID card which should be easy and non-discriminatory you should be able to vote.If you’re unable to get to the facility they can go to the people. The equipment will fit in a car.
If you can’t produce supporting data, that’s To Damn Bad !!! Everything is about Race which is Absolute BS.


#9

You need a picture ID for alcohol. pot, cigarettes, to board an airplane, get a job and a host of other activities.

Yet a voter ID is objectionable to the left.

Want voter fraud?

Come to Colorado.

100% mail in vote.

Register by mail at the motor vehicle department.


#10

.Next the Democrats will want Roll Call Voting.


#11

They’ll probably want people voting from their cell phones. Then they can go buy cheap burners at 7-11 and vote all damn day.


#12

Right On ThunderGod!!!


#13

Democrats Announce Plan to Protect US Elections: Does Not include Voter ID, Includes Move to Soros-Linked Voting Machines:


#14

Democrats are NOT interested in losing 24,000,000 illegal votes ! :roll_eyes:


#15

Soros linked voting machines would be real secure. A joke


#16

Racism of low expectation.


#17

It was easy for me to get a State Issued ID card from.PenDot.I needed one because my DL was temporarily suspended for a health issue. No Monte you weren’t responsible. I have have my DL back.
There was no charge for my 1st card but PenDot charges about$34 for one. Real Expensive isn’t it. The bus stop is within 100 ft of PenDot. Real Far isn’t it. There is no excuse where I live to not be able to have a Valid State Issued ID Card that could be used to vote.


#18

Even the poorest of the poor have identification. They couldn’t gobble up all of those welfare benefits without one.


#19

Many states will provide them free of charge.


#20

The Liberals are always whining. about how Voter ID Cards are so unfair to minorities and low income people.The fact is most of them are Too Lazy and want everything done for them.
If people can’t drive because of physical impairment,the ID’s could be done in their residence.It doesn’t take alot of equipment to do this.
This Liberal pandering to supposedly downtrodden people is becoming Rediculous.
