A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
America desperately NEEDS voter ID in all fifty states.
When you have sat, as I have, in smoke filled rooms all night and well into the day after Election Day waiting on precincts to report in because they are waiting to determine how many votes are necessary for THEIR candidate to win the election and somehow, those ballots just seem to appear in the wee hours of the next day, when you have seen entire ballot boxes disappear from polling places at the close of the election day to be found days later in a farmer's barn, when you have sat in hearing after hearing on voter irregularities, as I have, when you have sat in rooms with board of election officials on one side of the table and members of the US Justice Department with 357 Magnums on one hip and IBM belt recorders on the other hip sitting on the opposite side of the table carefully counting the ballots all over again, when you have witnessed paper ballots already filled out being exchanged for blank ballots to voters near a polling place, when you have seen altercations between precinct officials in which heated language, threats of bodily harm, and a knife are involved, when your county becomes known by the Feds as "Little Chicago" -- then MAYBE you can understand why I support such a simple unassuming safeguard as a state issued identification card that proves you are, in fact, the registered voter on the voter rolls of your precinct.
I have seen so much of this sort of thing, that I always have my voter registration card in my pocket, ready to show to precinct officials at a moment's notice on election day.
Folks where I live just about "bust a gut" laughing when the US Attorney General claims a voter ID would disenfranchise some voters. Does he actually believe that we believe him? Surely he is not THAT disconnected from reality? Is he?
Does Washington actually believe we buy the cock and bull story that states, especially SOUTHERN states, are really attempting to keep black voters from voting? The Obama Regime is still treating the Southern states as if they had extended Reconstruction and it has done nothing but aggravate and enrage a few million Southern voters, both democrats and republicans.
Look. Anyone falling for the Obama regime's stance on Voter ID -- well, let's just say, they probably ought to be administered an IQ test before being allowed to vote.
This is, without doubt, the dumbest debate we have ever had in this country -- at least in my lifetime.
The only political party sure to benefit from allowing anyone and every one to vote, whether they are dead or alive, citizen or non-citizen, or have voted numerous times at widely separated polling places -- is the Democratic Party. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT! But the stakes for the democrats are so high, they do not seem to mind making complete fools of themselves running a transparent con game right before the eyes of the nation.
Have they NO SHAME? Of COURSE they don't!
There is something malevolent and malignant in their defense of wide open voting by anyone, citizen or non citizen, dead or alive, as well as serial voters. Humans with the ability to feel shame and embarrassment would not do such a thing.
As debased as American society is today, a fair election is next to impossible. Election day is quickly becoming a joke.
A poll watcher remarked to me a few years back that he had noted that I never miss an election, even having been transported from the hospital to the polling place to cast my ballot from my wife's car. I answered his remark by saying that he was right. Men had died to secure this opportunity for me and I darn well intended to see to it that as long as I lived, I'd be there to cast a ballot, one way or the other.
It seems always to be those mean ole white conservative Southern republicans who want to insist that only living, registered, "human" citizens vote in America's elections. (GASP!!)
Why, the very thought that only people with a pulse, only humans, and only citizens of the US be allowed to vote is oppressive to the democrats! Why, they practically swoon at even the suggestion that someone would vote who is not legally entitled to do so!!!
Then the democrats roll out the artillery intended to stop the debate in its tracks -- they scream it's RACIST! Of course, we are insisting that only living members of the "HUMAN" RACE vote. OK, maybe that is what they mean by calling us racists.
In my opinion, racism is most definitely involved, and it is practiced hardily, handily, and with gusto by the very folks who claim to be the targets of racism. It is THEY who will not allow racism to perish. They have found it an easy tool to cover their own ineptitude AND a handy tool to bludgeon members of any other race that dares to claw its way out of poverty and take its place among the productive contributing members of its respective society.
If there is such a thing as "reverse racism" it is the democrats and their wards who are past masters as practitioners of this most vile of all the methods of national sabotage.
A voter ID is just that. It matters not if the hand that holds it is black, white, brown, red or, whatever. It represents dignity, honesty, and above all truth. And the truth, it would seem, is an affront to the democrats.
