Dissecting The Anti-Voter ID Sentiment
This morning, May 29th 2012, I went with my wife to our district’s polling place to cast our vote in the Presidential Primary, as well as to make our will known as to who we want to represent our state’s and district’s interests in Congress. As registered voters, we had received our Texas voter ID cards in the mail some months ago. These cards contain information on them such as our individual voter ID number, the relevant voting and school districts we reside within, and our names and addresses. They are nothing that would be considered proof of ID, as I would easily be able to fabricate a perfect duplicate on my own home computer with my deceased grandfather’s name and information. So, with our voter ID cards and our drivers’ licenses in hand, we headed for our polling location.
At this time in Texas, you either need to present your state issued photo identification or your voter id card to the poll attendant in order to cast your vote. My first question to the poll attendant when handing them my voter id card this morning was, “how do you know this is really me? Don’t you need to see my ID?” The attendant donned a look of helpless frustration and, stepping outside the polling place with me, explained to me that although Texas recently passed a law requiring a photo ID in all circumstances, the Obama administration had effectively restrained it temporarily. By directing the Department of Justice to file a lawsuit against the great state of Texas for supposedly having gone too far in asking an individual to prove their identity before casting a vote on their own behalf, Obama has managed to temporarily restrain Texas’ law via litigation and maintain the ability to commit voter fraud at its maximum level.
The absolute absurdity of it all. We don’t blink an eye when the local pub requires us to present photo ID to prove our age, and we kick ourselves in the rear, not the proprietor, when we show up without it and are turned away. For that matter, we don’t question for one second the reason or right of nearly ANY establishment or institution when they ask us to simply prove who we say we are before we embark on any business that is related to us as an individual. Why not? Why do we not hesitate to whip out our driver’s license or state issued ID when we want to withdraw money from the bank, replace our social security card, get a copy of our children’s shot records, buy a margarita, board an airplane, get a document notarized, rent a car, marry our sweetheart, go to the emergency room, or probably a thousand other miscellaneous endeavors we embark upon at one point or another in our lives? We don’t hesitate because it makes absolutely perfect sense to do so. But there are some…a very few oddly hyper-interested individuals…who believe that somehow, for some deep, mysterious reason, requiring an individual to prove who they are before they cast a ballot on their own behalf is an absolute outrage and causes many who would otherwise be able to have their vote counted to be unconstitutionally silenced and marginalized. All of the thousands of other tasks these same individuals perform which do require proof of identity are perfectly legitimate, even in the eyes of these Democratic narcissists; but to require proof of identity to vote is somehow…unfair?
The absurdity you see in this situation is not imagined; the emperor is indeed naked. And so we must, as responsible adults, thoroughly question the motives of the outraged protagonists leading the anti-ID sentiment, as well as the legitimacy of their demands. Why would they so adamantly call for what amounts to almost anonymous voting rights? Could they possibly sincerely believe that even one legally qualified individual would be disenfranchised of their right to vote simply because they would be required to prove their identity before doing so? It walks, sounds, and looks like a duck, my friends. It can be nothing less than a desperate and miniscule group of elitists who are aware of the fate that awaits them politically and will go to any lengths to avoid it if at all possible. Having the support and votes of the dead, politically apathetic, and illegal would most certainly aid in that endeavor, wouldn’t it?
Unfortunately for them, the self-absorbed Democratic elitists grossly misjudge the reasoning ability and common sense of We The People. This blindness and blatant dismissal on their part of the majority’s will is also their undoing, and will be the primary reason why they will suffer in a landslide defeat in November 2012. It is also in November when w
e will be able to snuff out the myriad of frivolous lawsuits brought by the Obama regime against some states for acting completely within their own rightful sovereignty. On November 7th, common conservative sense will once again be able to reign and the rights of the states will be returned to the states. In the meantime, it is indeed frustrating to have to fight the socialist agenda with one arm tied behind our backs in the form of voter fraud sanctioned by the Executive branch. Good thing our one free arm is stronger than both of theirs put together.
