Busting the “myth” of "no voter fraud"

Do the people on the loony left realize how insulting and demeaning it is to say that having to produce a picture ID is needlessly harsh on minorities?  Why don't they just stand up and say, "Blacks are to too stupid and lazy to obtain an ID?"   Because that is exactly what they're saying. 

 Bruce McQuain sheds some light on the subject: 
One of the primary requirements for any democracy is to safeguard the integrity of its voting system.  If the people believe that it is subject to compromised in any way, shape or form, they’re likely to lose confidence in the system.  And that will eventually erode the legitimacy of any government that is formed under such a system. One way to help insure that integrity is to make voters identify themselves before they can cast their ballot with a form of identification that everyone agrees upon and does the job of validating their identity.  Most agree that a picture ID issued by the state or federal government fulfills that role.  That’s because the such IDs usually aren’t issued until the entity issuing it can certify that the individual it is issuing it too is both a citizen and legal resident of the area.  read the rest

The most consequential election in our lifetime is still 10 months away, but it’s clear from the Obama administration’s order halting South Carolina’s new photo ID law that the Democrats already have brought a gun to a knife fight.
How else to describe this naked assault on the right of a state to create minimal requirements to curb voter fraud?  read the rest
