American left-wingers believe a person should be able to walk into any voting place on election day, say any name to the poll worker, whether it is the person's own name or not, and if the name appears on the list of registered voters, the poll worker must hand over a ballot and let that person vote. If I went into the Washington D.C. polling place and said my name was Barack Obama, left-wingers think I should be able to vote as Barack Obama. Crazy, I know.
Left-wingers also believe it is some kind of conspiratorial plot when dead voters and illegal voters are purged from the voter rolls, which is why Obama's Attorney General, Eric "Fast And Furious" Holder, sued the state of Florida in an attempt to stop that state from purging the dead and illegals from it's voter rolls. Hard to believe, but he did it.
No voter verification, along with keeping dead voters and illegal voters on the rolls, is what left-wingers think constitutes fair and honest elections. As absurd as these banana republic beliefs of the left are, they do believe them.
Such warped thinking is part of what enabled Mississippi NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers to vote for Barack Obama ten times in the 2008 election. Fox News reports:
Sowers was found guilty of voting in the names of Carrie Collins, Walter Howard, Sheena Shelton, Alberta Pickett, Draper Cotton and Eddie Davis. She was also convicted of voting in the names of four dead persons: James L. Young, Dora Price, Dorothy Harris, and David Ross.
Luckily, Sowers was caught. The sentencing judge noted that,"this crime cuts against the fabric of our free society". He is certainly correct, One wonders how many other times this kind of thing happens where the perpetrator is not caught. WIthout things like Voter Id laws and purging ineligible voters from the rolls, we have no way of knowing (and the left would like to keep it that way).
I could list numerous other instances of voter fraud, like this one, but the left-wingers always pretend they can't see them when I do, so I'm not going to waste too much time with it. Maybe just one more link showing the massive voter registration fraud committed by the left-wing group ACORN. I'll give the lefties a few things to ignore this time.
Fortunately for the integrity of our elections and our country, the vast majority of Americans are not drinking the poisonous banana republic Kool-Aid the lefties are selling. Most Americans realize integrity is important in our elections. That's why a Washington Post poll showed that an overwhelming 74% of the people favor Voter Id laws, while only 23% are against them.
That's a heartening majority, but I wonder who those 23% are who don't care about election integrity and are against Voter Id laws ? It's not really much of a mystery. According to a Gallup poll, 21% of Americans categorize themselves as liberal. Kool-Aid drinkers unite !!!
As for the left's main phony argument against voter Id, which is that a small percentage of people don't have id's, somehow it never occurs to these credulous lefties that all those people have to do is GET ONE, just like everyone else does. Having an ID is pretty essential in modern day America. Voila, problem solved.
