With President Obama’s recent immigration executive order–the one that gives 5 million lawbreakers a “get out of jail free card” to stay in America–it’s more important than ever for states to pass voter ID laws requiring folks to provide proof of identity at the polls.
This should seem like common sense given the fact that it’s likely many of those immigrants who will be allowed to stay will feel indebted to the Democratic Party, and if allowed, will gladly cast a vote in favor of bogus radical progressives bent on the destruction of America.
Unfortunately, liberals are working overtime to try dissuading Americans from being in favor of any kind of measure that would protect the integrity of the voting system, using their favorite go-to weapon to shame people into not supporting voter ID laws: racism.
Kooky liberals claim that these type of laws “suppress minority voters,” therefore it’s racist to pass and enforce them. Never mind the fact that you need an ID to drive, buy beer, get a gun, and the list goes on.
Well, according to the New York Times, several freshly conducted studies say liberals spewing out this garbage are full of crap.
As the Brennan Center puts it in the second sentence of their article: “Yes, it is likely rare for an election to be close enough for voter ID laws to swing the outcome.”
The Brennan Center instead disputes my contention that studies tend to “overstate the number of voters who truly lack identification.”
My position on the matter, setting aside whether the laws are a cynical attempt to disenfranchise Democratic voters, is based on these facts: Many studies do not use robust matching techniques when comparing state voter registration and licensing databases (and robust matching, even when used, isn’t perfect); and many studies fail to match voter registration files with alternative forms of identification, like United States passports or military identification.
The studies with the most sensational and widely publicized findings have generally failed to do these things. The most famous of these was a study finding that 758,000 of Pennsylvania’s registered voters lacked identification. It caused liberals to wonder whether voter ID laws could steal elections. The result was publicized by the Brennan Center, but more rigorous studies have since cut that figure nearly in half.
I hate to break it to you, Mr. Liberal, but voter ID laws aren’t any more racist than requiring an ID to buy a beer.
With the state of our country currently going down the crapper–due to a president who claims to be a constitutional scholar, yet for some reason can’t seem to grasp the concept of a separation of powers–it’s more critical than ever to protect the integrity of the voting system.
Voting is the most powerful weapon the average citizen possess to fight out of control government. If this is corrupted, then the great American experiment we’ve all been privileged to be a part of is over.
This study should help open some eyes about the fairness and effectiveness of voter ID laws to help prevent voter fraud and inspire other states around the nation to adopt them as quickly as possible.
