You can tell a lot by the motives of someone by looking at how consistent they are. In order to get into the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, you will need an ID. Why can’t Democrat voters be trusted to enter a convention that’s for Democrats? Why would they lie about who they are?
A Democrat official will most likely say that IDs are necessary because of party crashers. Maybe some Republicans, Libertarians, or Independents will try to come in and disrupt the convention. This is a very good argument for the necessity of IDs for the convention. But it leaves a couple of things unanswered.
First, isn’t it a hardship on some people to get an ID? Isn’t this a standard argument sued by Liberals on why it’s unconstitutional improper to ask for an ID at the voting booth? If it’s not a hardship in one place (the convention), then it’s not a hardship in another place (the voting booth).
Second, the very nature of an election is to get your guy elected. Some people are unscrupulous in that they will do anything to ensure their candidate wins. This will mean sabotaging an election by voting multiple times or using the names and addresses of dead people to flood the ballot box with extra votes.
“An anti-voter fraud group says it has discovered 30,000 dead folks registered to vote across North Carolina. The group collected the names by comparing death records from the past decade to voter rolls; it says the figure would have been bigger had the group had access to death records in neighboring states.”
While not all these dead voters’ names are implicated in voter fraud, it’s not beyond the realm of possibilities that they could be. Without a proper ID, how would anyone know if a person was using a deceased registered voter as a way to boost the number of votes for one political party over the other? They wouldn’t.
The following is from the Charlotte Observer:
“Mainly, what we’re concerned about is the potential [for fraud],” said project director Jay DeLancy. “Since there is no voter ID law in North Carolina, anybody can walk in and claim to be anyone else.”
Liberals are so intent on blocking voter ID requirements because they know that their fellow-liberals are some of the biggest voter-cheats. They wouldn’t cash a check given to them by someone claiming to be the person the check is made out to, but they’re willing to look the other way for the potential of voter fraud in order put people in office who write checks to keep the wealth distributors in office.
