Veteran political analyst Cokie Roberts, whose parents Hale and Lindy Boggs were both Democrat members of Congress, shows her true colors by declaring that states which support Voter ID are “downright evil.”
Former Florida Congressman Allen West, a stalwart conservative, addresses her foolish assertion with these well chosen words: Ms. Roberts is obviously employing the ol’ Alinsky tactic of demonizing your opposition. However, to show how completely stupid her comment is, I bring to her attention the fact that picture ID was required for entry to last year’s DNC convention in Charlotte. Evil, Ma’am? The progressive socialist design to fundamentally transform our Constitutional Republic means control of the electoral system in order to guarantee a permanent national majority and one party rule. Next time Ms. Roberts takes a flight and must present her picture ID at TSA security checkpoint, will she call them evil? And, oh by the way Ma’am, black voter participation rates surpassed whites in the last two presidential cycles.
Authenticating identity before receiving a ballot or registering to vote protects the integrity of the election process. It in no way inhibits voters from exercising their rights. This is the law governing identification at the polls in Arizona.
Human Events reports on numerous instances of fraud in the electoral process. Pew Research reports 2.75 million Americans are registered in two states, along with more than 1.8 million deceased individuals still listed as voters.
Although the New York Times disputes the existence voter fraud, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposes the ease with which people were able to obtain the ballots of dead people still registered in New Hampshire. This was the situation in Minnesota as videographers obtained absentee ballots on behalf of fictional friends, using the names of famous NFL quarterbacks.
Despite media liberals’ efforts at dismissing evidence of pervasive fraud, it is imperative our elective system inspire confidence that the process operates with honor. Requiring ID to vote is not “evil.” It is a fundamental display of integrity.
