From the Examiner.com :“Democrats Fighting Hard for Illegal Alien Vote — In December 2011, Eric Holder announced that the Department of Justice will begin investigating Texas and South Carolina over their recently enacted laws requiring voters to present a photo ID before casting their ballots. The laws were designed to reduce voter fraud … a problem in every election.” I’ll read that to you again:“In December 2011,[Attorney General] Eric Holder announced that the Department of Justice will begin investigating Texas and South Carolina over their recently enacted laws requiring voters to present a photo ID before casting their ballots.

“During a speech at the LBJ presidential library, Holder said:‘In jurisdictions across the country — both overt and subtle forms of discrimination remain all too common.’” The old photo ID business. Can you think of anything you do in your life where you do not need a photo ID? You need a photo ID to cash a check. You need a photo ID to get on an airplane. You need a photo ID for everything. For the most mundane things in life, you need a photo ID. But yet, Eric Holder and his gang tell us that to require a photo ID when one votes is intimidation, and it is discrimination.

And it will cause people to hole up in their homes and not vote. When people say,“No, no, no. We’ll be glad to provide them a photo ID free if they just come down to city hall,” that’s a trick also to get people out of their homes. It’s the state using its awesome fist to discriminate and intimidate people who don’t have photo ID. Okay, all well and good. Let’s take it at face value. The Democrat Party is standing tall, standing strong for people who want to be able to vote but who can’t prove who they are. Now, by the same token, are these people who do not have photo IDs thus also not able to get on an airplane?

I just voted. In the past few elections, all I showed was my voter registration card. This time, I pulled it out and they told me that I had to show a photo identification which I did. Then they checked their records and saw that I was a registered voter and they checked me off as having voted. I see no problem with this. If I didn't have a photo ID and was told that I needed one to vote and that I could get one for free, I would make sure that I got one. If I were unwilling to take this step, then maybe I shouldn't be allowed to vote. I don't see why this is a Republican or Democrat issue.

I see no reason that it wouldn't be a good practice to show voter I.D.,help's with voter fraud.

If you're hiding something you would be fearful of showing proper ID. If you're an honest person then you'd be ok with it. Bottom line, Obama and his ilk have to GO in Jan. Our country can not afford 4 more years of his destruction.

What destruction--I'm doing fine. If you aren't, maybe it's your fault--cry baby.
