One of the most dishonest political myths created and spread by Democrats is that voter fraud isn’t real. They claim all day long that voter fraud doesn’t exist and that voter ID laws are simply the Republican’s plan to keep minorities from voting. Seriously, even Democratic presidential “candidates” like Bernie Sanders have been spreading the salacious lie that Republicans don’t want minorities to vote.
Never mind the fact that Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, France and many other countries require a photo ID to vote. India, a country with millions upon millions of citizens who live in unspeakable poverty, has voter ID laws which pretty thoroughly debunks the racist argument from liberals that the poor can’t figure out how to acquire identification.
President Obama himself, who is from the unbelievably politically corrupt city of Chicago, has gone on the record and laughed about the idea of voter fraud even though his own state’s political system is about as lawful as the American West.
The President said, “nobody wakes up and says I’m going to go vote in someone else’s name.”
Well, Heritage Foundation recently released a study and found concrete evidence and convictions of 300 cases where people woke up and said just that.
This list is by no means complete and of course only those who are caught committing voter fraud are part of this study. It is also one of many many studies that have concluded voter fraud is a real problem.
There is no rational reason to oppose voter ID laws and every obstacle cited by the left has been intellectually dismissed or a solution could easily be attained. For example, states could start issuing free photo IDs to citizens under that poverty level that are only valid for voting purposes. They could do that tomorrow, for very little cost. It’s what India does.
Voter ID’s relation to racism is a total non-starter and the more evidence of voter fraud that surfaces will only further uncover the stark reality that voter fraud is a serious issue.
